*For our bride, Jen’s full trip report, a great step by step tool for anyone who has any questions about planning a non resort wedding in Playa del Carmen, check out her post here: http://www.playa.info/playa-del-carmen-forum/59230-our-wedding-playacar-11-days-playa-del-carmen-nov-2010-a.html
Jen and Adam had vacationed in Playa del Carmen prior to their engagement so they already had a clear idea of what they were looking for when they began planning their destination wedding in the Riviera Maya.
They wanted something unique, personal, totally customizable, casual and most of all fun!
When we showed them around a couple of private villas in Playacar and explained they would be a blank canvas to decorate and that they would be totally private and intimate, Jen and Adam immediately felt it would be the best option for their dream wedding.
The couple wanted to show their friends and family everything they loved about the area, so during their week long stay, we organized a day trip to Akumal, where they snorkeled with sea turtles in beautiful Half Moon Bay, and a welcome dinner at one of Playa’s many romantic bistro’s.
On the day of the wedding, we worked with By Design Events for catering and Maxirent and Floreria Jardin helped transform the usually bare yard into a beautiful wedding reception area, using flowers, candles, lanterns and many DIY projects Jen and Adam had brought along.
Fun and unique touches like street food carts and a churro wagon were a hit with the guests, who had a great time at the tequila tasting station and on the dance floor, before hitting the pool at the end of the night!
We definitely had an amazing time planning this fun wedding and week of festivities… we wish Jen and Adam all the love and happiness in the world!
