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 .

Krystal and Toni Wedding at Indigo Beach – Playa del Carmen

Krystal and Toni are adventure-seekers. They really are!

When i first met Krystal via Skype, i thought….what a beautiful vibrant woman!! i am so happy to organise her wedding: it’ll be FUN!

well that has been true.
From day 1 Toni and Krystal have been amazing fun. Planning their wedding from Queensland, Australia, they wanted to make sure that relaxed elegance and great party were going to be the Thing.

The couple first met in a bar near Kangaroo Point, Australia, and just six months later, they hopped in a car, drove 3,000 miles, and made a trip of a life time. Avid travellers and dedicated friends, they have invited their awesome families and friends to Playa del Carmen , some 14,300 Km away, for a party of their lifetime . It was evident that they are loved, as all the invited guests arrived, after 22 hrs of a long flight.

From their new base in Queensland, Krystal says they continued on new adventures, driving up the coast whenever they could escape work for a long weekend. But perhaps their greatest adventure took place in October, when they had the fabulous idea of getting a little fun in their wedding day.
For their wedding, the adventurous couple selected a destination like Playa because they wanted that everyone visited Mexico together, as the country holds a special place in their hearts.

The location chosen was the beach club Indigo Beach, on calle 16th and the beach. The amazing Haidee was there helping during the months before and on wedding day, as usual

There, Krystal, Toni and their 35 guests enjoyed a long weekend of festivities planned by the bride and us at Weddingsinplaya. We enlisted an all-star team of vendors, including Alessandro Bacchelli from AB photography who was on hand to capture every special moment and gorgeous detail, so keep reading to see all the creativity come to life. Seriously, get your Pinterest boards ready!

The couple decided to take a few pictures in the romantic garden of Lunata and she chose, on my advice, to get there on triciclo, a typical Mexican transportation which I decorated with all care!

There Toni was waiting for her with eyes closed and they enjoyed their first look.

We love their green minimalist set up – it’s very simple but the wooden table, golden silverware and details offset by the greenery works really well and everything looks amazing!
