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!

We are proud to present the new Weddings in Playa website! A place where we can share our beautiful weddings and provide inspiration to future brides planning a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya!
As word continues to spread about how amazing the Riviera Maya is, with its stunning beaches, abundant hotels and resorts for every budget and taste and all of its natural beauty, it is no surprise we are seeing more and more weddings taking place here and every now and then we even get a celebrity appearance!
Beautiful actress, Amy Davidson, known best for her role on TV’s “8 Simple Rules” and her fiancé Kacy came to us for their May 2010 destination wedding.
Amy, always stunning with her flowing red hair and beautiful smile, wanted a simple and elegant ceremony and fun filled reception with beachy accents and bright pops of color.
We drew inspiration from the bright colors in peacock feathers and incorporated them into the bouquets which complimented the brides hair and eyes perfectly.
The ceremony took place under the romantic gazebo of the Gran Porto Real, in the heart of Playa del Carmen. Adding to the dramatic backdrop of this beautiful resort, were high winds as a Norte passed through our area! Not a problem for this spontaneous couple and their guests, they knew it would make for great photos!
Playa del Carmen based photographer Zazil Graph was on site to capture the memories of this fun filled day and Ken Brownlee got it all on film.
Thank you to our Fire Goddess Amy, Kacy and their wonderful group for allowing us to be a part of their special day!
