Teresa and Javier, Hotel Lunata, Playa del Carmen Wedding


Playa del Carmen is growing and changing every day. More and more venue choices are popping up and as much as we love exploring new locations, there is always something special about planning a wedding at one of Playa’s landmark locations.
Hotel Lunata has been a part of our city for over 10 years. A charming hacienda style retreat in the heart of the city that has the perfect courtyard for a special celebration. Teresa and Javier had no doubt it was the perfect fit for their May wedding in Playa del Carmen.


Personalized papel picado banners were strung along with colourful Chinese lanterns to create a festive atmosphere in the lush garden.weddingsinplaya_playa_del_carmen_wedding

This intimate location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of 5th Avenue, is a great choice for anyone looking for a beautiful garden location for a small group. The colours and natural beauty of the garden make it easy to get inspired to decorate for a tropical wedding in paradise!

Melissa and Tom, Indigo Beach Club, Playa del Carmen



Indigo Beach Club in the heart of Playa del Carmen was the chosen location for our Canadian bride Melissa, her handsome New Zealand born groom Tom and their lucky guests.




The ladies got ready at a private villa on the beach while the men sipped cervezas and awaited the stunning beach front ceremony.


With pops of pink, turquoise and green accents, the venue was transformed into a destination wedding paradise. Swaying palms lit up the night as guests dined on Indigo Beach’s fine cuisine and enjoyed dancing along the Caribbean sea.





Congratulations Melissa and Tom! Cheers to a lifetime of happiness!

Kristina and Hiram, Casa Adela, Playa del Carmen

5th avenue wedding weddingsinplaya

Mexico is known for it’s vibrant colors, bold flavors and festive way of life. Kristina, an American woman who fell in love with Hiram, born and raised in Mexico, knew she wanted her wedding to reflect everything they love about this wonderful country.

The couple got ready and had their ceremony in the tropical garden at Hotel Lunata, a charming boutique hotel right on 5th Avenue. Their beloved dog, Guapo, acted as ring bearer and the party was then escorted by a mariachi band down the famous street to Casa Adela, a unique restaurant and art gallery in the heart of downtown Playa del Carmen.


We kept a close eye on the weather, as the threat of rain was looming, but we managed to work our wedding magic and it held off long enough for beach portraits and until the party was well underway at the venue! The decor was a great mix of romantic and traditional Mexican with many pops of color and personal touches.




We loved this vibrant, happy celebration and wish our couple all the best for years to come!
