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!!!

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.
