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 .

The weather was perfect and the beach always beautiful but it was all the tiny details that made the party so special! Custom signs, traditional Mexican talavera tiles to find your seat, a tequila bar, custom papel picado gift tags and maracas were some of  the touches of fiesta added to the day.

Ahn and Cody, Indigo Beach Club, Destination Wedding in Playa del Carmen

PhotostudioAB010There’s something about the energy in Playa del Carmen you just can’t deny. It’s such a vibrant city, with something for everyone, and that’s why it makes for such a perfect location for a destination wedding.
Ahn and Cody knew this when they chose to marry at Indigo Beach Club. It’s right in the heart of Playa del Carmen, steps away from 5th Avenue and even closer to the sea!
