Ryan and Ryane, Punta Esmeralda Elopement

Ryan_Ryane_Wedding_68How adorable is that?! Ryan and Ryane… finding true love with one another! This wonderful couple decided to elope to the Riviera Maya and Punta Esmeralda provided the perfect backdrop for this intimate moment.

I was on double duty for this one! I had the honour of helping beautiful Bride Ryane get ready and acted as minister as the couple said their “I Do’s”.

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.

Eloping in Playa del Carmen

mayan elope2

Once and a while we get the honor of being a part of a very intimate, very private and very emotional moment, when two people decide that they wish to elope in Playa del Carmen and forgo the big traditional wedding.

As romantic as the idea is to secretly run off and get married in Mexico, there is still much to be decided; flowers, hair and makeup, photography, location, ceremony…

mayan elopePauline and Johan from Sweden came to us wishing to find a private beach area to bring their very small group of friends and family to for a surprise elopement. We organized a Mayan Ceremony on a beautiful beach in Playa del Carmen, followed by a small cocktail hour and they had a friend handle photography. It was a beautiful surprise!

Taking the surprise elopement idea even further, were David and Nicole from Kentucky, who were married on the beach in Playa del Carmen in their bathing suits and posted the photos on Facebook as a surprise announcement to their friends and family!

And finally, Olivier and Monica, a couple from Norway who brought their two beautiful children to the Riviera Maya so they could participate in their legal ceremony under the beautiful palms of Playa.
