Bethany and Mike, Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen

grandcoralbeachclubceremony

The Grand Coral Beach Club is popular with brides that come to us looking for something modern and secluded, on one of Playa del Carmen’s many beautiful stretches of white sandy beaches.

Bethany and Mike loved the fresh and simple look of this non resort venue and after being disappointed with the high costs of planning their wedding back home in Arizona, they fell in love with the location started planning their classy black and white Mexican destination wedding!

Bethany chose pretty white flowers with touches of green and cascading floral centerpieces from a wonderful local florist, Jardin Floreria, and we decorated the classic white tables and linens from Maxirent with crystal accents and romantic candles.

Brooke and Travis, DIY Wedding featured on Style Me Pretty

corazon altar

If there is one thing we absolutely love about planning weddings, it is the creative process of turning our clients visions into something real. When a couple comes to us with a project or idea to make their wedding more personal, we embrace it whole heatedly.

Travis and Brooke came to us a few years ago wanting to build their own altar to go along with the other fabulous decorations they had crafted. We drove to various stores in Playa del Carmen, gathering all the necessary tools and inspiration along the way, and the end result was a beautiful and unique arch for the very personal ceremony and a ton of fabulous DIY decor!

A Persian Wedding, Pontea and David, Grand Coral Beach Club

ponteadavid_grandcoralbeachclub

If you listen closely while out in Playa del Carmen, you’ll quickly realize how multicultural our beautiful city is. You’ll hear Spanish, English, Italian, Portuguese, French and many other languages being spoken in the shops and restaurants, and this is one of the many reasons we believe Playa is a perfect location for a beautiful destination wedding.

Pontea and David came to us, and to Playa, with their Persian influence. They brought offerings and decor with them to help us create a traditional Persian wedding on the gorgeous secluded beach of the Grand Coral Beach Club.

We incorporated a mirror (“the mirror of fate”) and two Candelabras (representing the bride and groom and brightness in their future), one on each side of the mirror at the ceremony site. Traditional offerings of foods and spices were laid out and guests got to witness this happy couple exchange vows with the help of their families.

As word continues to spread about how amazing the Riviera Maya is, with its stunning beaches, abundant hotels and resorts for every budget and taste and all of its natural beauty, it is no surprise we are seeing more and more weddings taking place here and every now and then we even get a celebrity appearance!

Beautiful actress, Amy Davidson, known best for her role on TV’s “8 Simple Rules” and her fiancé Kacy came to us for their May 2010 destination wedding.

 

Amy, always stunning with her flowing red hair and beautiful smile, wanted a simple and elegant ceremony and fun filled reception with beachy accents and bright pops of color.

We drew inspiration from the bright colors in peacock feathers and incorporated them into the bouquets which complimented the brides hair and eyes perfectly.

The ceremony took place under the romantic gazebo of the Gran Porto Real, in the heart of Playa del Carmen. Adding to the dramatic backdrop of this beautiful resort, were high winds as a Norte passed through our area! Not a problem for this spontaneous couple and their guests, they knew it would make for great photos!

Playa del Carmen based photographer Zazil Graph was on site to capture the memories of this fun filled day and Ken Brownlee got it all on film.

Christine and Joe, Destination Wedding at Blue Venado Beach Club, Punta Venado

weddings in playa

Christine came to us hoping to find her dream Mexican beach wedding venue. Her wish? Secluded, rustic and open air. She imagined a big palapa decorated in traditional Mexican papel picado banners, a sea side ceremony and an authentic Mexican feel. We immediately suggested Blue Venado Beach Club, 15 minutes outside of Playa del Carmen. It was a perfect fit!

Decor and details were on the top of this brides list. We worked on finding beautiful custom papel picado banners and strung them with tiny white lights to create the romantic and whimsical atmosphere. Chinese lanterns lit up the dance floor and a mix of beautiful fresh tropical flowers filled colorful vases that, mixed with candles, lined the tables draped in lace runners.

Personal touches, such as DIY mini pinatas, papel picado flags and cupcake toppers helped bring it all together and we were thrilled with the way we were able to transform the usually bare venue into a fun, festive and romantic setting for the couple and their guests who celebrated in the sand and danced the night away!

Danay and Jon, Destination Wedding at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen

When we introduced them to the Grand Coral Beach Club, a modern, open air venue on a quiet beach in Playa del Carmen, they knew it was perfect.

Roses, white accents and vintage chairs created a romantic and elegant look for the beautiful sea side ceremony.

Danay’s vision for the ceremony decor was simple yet elegant, using strung lanterns and beautiful lanterns to light up the night and it came together beautifully.
