Best wedding details for the Season

From chair ornaments to table enhancement, wedding details are the nuts and bolt of a well-planned wedding… small decorations that create THE personal touch!

Flowers are life

What?

We have seen a lot of great weddings over 21 years, but sometimes the little wedding details really stand out. Sometimes more is less. Create a stunning wedding look narrowing down what style or theme fits your wedding ideal day. A fantastic way to browse into this is Pinterest, where you can literally spy what others do…

It’s certain that all wedding plans are overwhelming. It’s common to forget about the little details that make your day amazing. Ideas that you love. Plants, flags and candles are budget-friendly ornaments that will amp up your wedding’s wow point …

Flowers are important, but for an Instagram WOW view introduce details that capture your values, story and what you cherish most (including furry pets, which we adore!!)…

Woof

Ask yourselves: do we intend a more time-honored and traditional wedding, or more fresh and modern? How would we describe our interior design style and/or fashion sense? Are there any hobbies, passions, or unique aspects of our personalities, culture, and relationship we could creatively weave through our design? 

Tequila breaks the ice

Create a wedding that talks about you and you will create a life time memory that will remind your guests about You.

Naal and AB Photography, thank You!

Ten years later… what happens after they say I do?

What happens after the princess marries her prince?

A few success stories after we say good bye…. Happy Val DAY!

Today is February 14th, Saint Valentine.

I am in love with love, not for nothing i do this job.

It is so amazing to get to meet our clients before they get married and start their life together, but what happens after it?

I often remind to my brides that if they put the same effort in the marriage as in the wedding… it will go always incredibly well! Something must stick, because on 600 couples only 5 divorced, so we must bring some luck… or they are quite amazing themselves…

The fact that we say good bye at the beginning of the adventure is not a motive to let years go by without any news. We keep in touch with our ex clients, send them love and also see some of them in Playa, like Erica in this photo!!

We often hear from them, some come to Playa and remarry after 5 or 10 years… we meet the children and i cannot wait to see what else they are going to experience.

Not all have kids, some party like rockstars, like Maryann and Cesar, below, that got married with me in Tulum over 10 years ago….

We love all of their choices, because life is made of real people and real adventure. Here 3 of my fav, Jaimie and Denee, married at Grand Coral 11 years ago.

All of our clients are dear to our hearts, yet time goes by and some of them we never see.

Yet we have fond memories of all of them and wish them a life that is amazing, long and full of love .

Melody Vanessa and Axel, Pueblito Mayakoba’ and Grand Coral wedding

I know you guys are tired to hear me say that I always get the best clients, but I DO!!!

This  week´s featured wedding makes my heart sing. I want to start with a quote  from R. Queen, because this quote made me think about what do we do and how  we  do it. We love  our work, because  we cherish every client, we never take for granted  our vendors and we show our passion. That is the secret of our success.

Axel  and  Melody Vanessa are such kindred spirits, that when we met via Skype with their young son Mateo i just loved them with a  passion.

They were young, in love, accomplished, living in California, had 2 kids, and they had very clear ideas about their wedding.

A Catholic wedding in a unique location. lots  of great music, amazing  food, incredible scenery. A memory to cherish  for years to come.

I had a vision:

the church at  Pueblito Mayakoba’ and Grand Coral.

BAM!  they loved it!

We want to show it off immediately with  a 4´ video:

Mayakoba, an eco-resort on the shores of the Caribbean in Mexico, opened Riviera Maya’s newest attraction and event venue, El Pueblito, a few years ago.

Modelled after the historic plazas of Mexico, El Pueblito transports the culture and charm of Colonial Merida and San Miguel de Allende to the sandy beaches and jungle landscape of Mayakoba and is set to be the destination’s most sought-after location for weddings and private events.

Anchored by a beautiful white chapel – christened La Santa Cruz – the venue features a cozy park with a traditional kiosk in the center of the esplanade for entertainment, as well as shops and restaurants to create a traditional plaza. El Pueblito is accessible from  Playa in 15 minutes  and offers guests a new option not only for events, but also for socialising, casual dining, shopping, and fun for the whole family. The gentle manager, Mauricio, even allowed the bride to use the prepping room for make up and last touches! Thanks Mauricio.

The ceremony was touching but also light, with Father Quin performing in English  and Spanish for the bilingual families.

After the ceremony, a quick bus ride to  Grand  Coral for the 55  guests where  food and tequila was waiting for all….

Dinner in a simple yet unforgettable setting, thanks to Chef Rigel from Grand Coral Beach Club.

The party was great fun, Axel is a great lap  dancer…. ahaha!

 

Every guest had great fun, including the little ones.

Congratulations for a life time of happiness!!!
