If you listen closely while out in Playa del Carmen, you’ll quickly realize how multicultural our beautiful city is. You’ll hear Spanish, English, Italian, Portuguese, French and many other languages being spoken in the shops and restaurants, and this is one of the many reasons we believe Playa is a perfect location for a beautiful destination wedding.
Pontea and David came to us, and to Playa, with their Persian influence. They brought offerings and decor with them to help us create a traditional Persian wedding on the gorgeous secluded beach of the Grand Coral Beach Club.
We incorporated a mirror (“the mirror of fate”) and two Candelabras (representing the bride and groom and brightness in their future), one on each side of the mirror at the ceremony site. Traditional offerings of foods and spices were laid out and guests got to witness this happy couple exchange vows with the help of their families.
The ceremony was followed by dinner and dancing at the always beautiful and modern Grand Coral poolside reception area, decorated with white flowers, crystal vases and glowing candles. A DJ and band kept guests dancing and toasting the night away!
Cheers to the happy couple!
