Destination weddings have become trendy and posh. We started working in 2001, almost 20 years ago and the number of couples choosing Mexico as their final I DO destination has been increasingly growing. The market is full of planners, all ready to swear by their effectiveness.
Why do you want to hire pros that have been proficiently and longer on the market?
Find out 5 reasons why.
We have mastered the experience of planning
Over 19 years, we have organized more than 500 weddings. Small, large, beach, cenote, interracial, inter religious, gender fluid, complex family dynamics… Stress can be felt. Yet we are open minded, understanding and resilient. We know the who and where. We possess a combination of skills and experience that will make your life easier and will make you look smart.
2. We have built strong relationships with reliable local vendors
Your wedding is a very serious matter to us: we are extremely particular about the vendors we work with: over the years they have proven to us that they are not only excellent at what they do, they are also reliable and genuinely care about our couples. We treat them very well and look out for each other. This results in an awesome wedding.
3. We will be respectful of your budget
Over the years, we have learned many tricks for saving our couples money and we love to share them. Plus we will help you with understanding how to choose a location, what is really important and how to get the best deals in Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya.
4. We will be there for you and your guests
Our planner attends to every wedding , so you can celebrate and enjoy your fab day. You can let us know of any allergies, any whims or any needs: we will help creating the best space for you both and your guests.
5. We know what we are doing and how to control different situations
Getting married is an important emotional milestone in your life.
We are here to make it a stress-free experience, so you can enjoy every minute.
Perfection is not about following written steps or a schedule. A wedding is a living entity shaped by each person and their wishes. If you need more or less time for your photo session or your speeches, or simply take a little time alone with your new spouse, we will make it happen.
Flexibility is key in the smallest of details and sometimes even big ones if you decide to make some mayor changes…… (except the partner!!!)
You can rest assured we will treat your wedding as our own.
Thanks to all of our fab photographer for their contributions: Del Sol, Quetzal photography, AB photostudio, Lili Breton photography and Marina Pochepkina.
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 .
Many years ago (almost 25) I arrived to a little village called Playa del Carmen.
I did not know it would change my life. Among the pristine beaches, the amazing coral reef, the incredible great Caribbean sea and the blessed/cursed (depends if it’s night or day!!) mezcal, i also discovered that… near Playa … there were many caves with water, called by the locals cenotes which means a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. … The term derives from a word used by the low-land Yucatec Maya—ts’onot—to refer to any location with accessible groundwater.
These locations were quite desert in 1996, when i arrived and few had started to explore them.
Visiting a cenote then, was an amazing adventure: first you had to find a friend with a truck, then venture to the small highway to find some entrance to the cave which was always hidden and very ruined, then convince the guy at gate (if he was there) to enter and swim (at our own risk, as the place was desert). But the prize was a day in cold freshwater and enjoying the jungle at its best!
Fast forward 24 years, now a cenote is a fab wedding location, in fact i had 3 weddings in 3 days at the wonderful cenote Buho.
This is one of them.
Kira and Arslan met online 2 years ago, in Canada. Kira is a dedicated animal lover, manages a pet shop and Arslan was fresh from Spain, where he lived most of his life.
It was love at first sight.
They decided to get married in a subtle and relaxed way, inviting the families to a legal ceremony in a cenote, which Kira knew before, as she has come to Playa since childhood.
Her mother, aunts and uncles were at the ceremony and we all had great fun celebrating the young couple and drinking champagne (in plastic glasses, of course, which we took with us to safeguard the pristine ecological environment!!).
After the ceremony we all went back to Playa to enjoy a superb dinner at Aldea Corazon (thanks Oda and Ale)!!! Cake by La Migaja was yummy!!
Thanks to Yesenia for the legal wedding, Isaura Photography for the lovely photos and Namaste tours for the van ride (even if it broke down, but then it is an adventure!!).
To Kira and Arslan ; you are young, you are in love: the world is your Oyster. GO LIVE!
