Janne and Jari, Mayan Ceremony, Destination Wedding in Paamul

3U5A9330A
Paamul is the perfect place for an intimate mayan ceremony. It’s still a peaceful little village and the beach is long, large and quiet. It was a great choice for Janne and Jari, who came to the Riviera Maya all the way from chilly Finland with their adorable son Benjamin.

The magic of the Shaman ceremony had everyones full attention and the couple had a special champagne toast to celebrate their union. A stretch limo whisked them off into the sunset to begin their journey as husband and wife.

It warmed our hearts to receive a sweet note from the bride upon her return to Finland:

I wish I could come back and get married again!

We loved your planning, it was much more what we excpected. I feel bad that we don’t have a video as I would like to have the words the Mayan women said to us… she was so nice, with her big heart and made us feel so special on that special day.

On the sand, under a big white tent, you can decorate and customize to your hearts content!

Velia and Giovanni, 50th Wedding Anniversary, Gorizia, Italy

101_9393This post is a special one. My parents recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and I was fortunate enough to be there with them at La Locanda Goriziana, in Gorizia, Italy to celebrate!

We decorated the venue with simple flower arrangements and had old photos to pass around while we told stories. My parents still have the original outfits they wore on their wedding day and we were able to put them on display as a special touch!
