Primož & Kaja, Love before lockdown

True love is a hug in the wind…

Slovenia is a lovely little country, nested between Hungary and Italy. I am proud to come from those lands, my birthplace is Gorizia, a city divided into 2 from 1945, one part is Slovenian, Nova Gorica and one part is Italian, Gorizia. Even if small, Slovenia has incredible gems: lakes, high mountains, incredible beauty and amazing people. Two of them are the protagonists of this story, a wonderful love story that will wow and move you. They are Kaja & Primož.

Slovenia, independent since 1991

Primož met Kaja a few years ago, they were fresh from college and trying to make sense of what comes ahead. He fell head over heels, she was giving priority to her career and study. But love and a steady heart can win over anything, Kaja soon understood how funny, amazing and sensitive he was and they started love story, business & life together. A few years later, after their baby was born, they felt ready for a wedding, but being such clever and whimsical individuals they wanted to have a real party in a real party town: Playa del Carmen , Mexico, in February. The ideal cure after a long cold tedious winter in Slovenia: MEXICO!!!!!

They wrote a few months before the Covid Chaos and i had the honor to see them a few time, in Italy and in Slovenia, Ljubljana, the modern and vibrant capital of Slovenia. They wanted a wedding tailored to their style: relaxed yet lively and high-spirited, as they are, young entrepreneurs with a full life, a satisfactory business and a young child. They are very much in consonance and one was finishing the sentence of the other, always with lightness and laughter. A joy to me!

Life smiles

They wanted a secluded place and chose the untouched beauty of the beaches north of Playa del Carmen, near Villa Secret Jewel in Playa del Secreto. A safe harbour with very few tourists…

The sky is not the limit…there is no limit

The condos were lovely and the owner super kind, allowing them to have a little celebration with a lot of heart & fun, as they are! Their flare and cleverness, joined with such kindness bruoght over 20 friends to Mexico to celebrate their lives, their love and the happy union…

Kaja’s beauty

The wedding was celebrated a few days before the Covid explosion reached Europe, and life as we knew was changed drastically. Yet the ceremony, performed by Paula Riquelme was heartfelt and family and friends will cherish a memory so amazing in the years to come…

The group was happy to be in a tropical setting, coming from a long European winter, they enjoyed not only a wedding but a whole week of fun and sun, as very often happens. After the ceremony a lovely dinner was held by the caterers of the villa with lots of Mexican ‘comida’ – a different taste and color greatly appreciated by the Slovenian bunch, used to different tastes!

So, why are so many coming to Mexico to marry? I believe it is the possibility of have a great holiday and a very relaxed, beautiful wedding. Winter in some countries is harsh. Come to Playa, marry your love and celebrate with a lot of tacos, tequila and all your loved ones!

We will be here for you, 20 years ago and tomorrow.

To celebrate life, accomplishments and love with all of you!
