I just love me a good Mexico wedding on the beach. I seriously can’t get enough of them and their stormy skies and effortlessly hip design. I go nuts for them each and every time! And when they just so happen to be designed by AE Planning + Design and photographed by Paco and Betty, well then I just go into a total wedding blogger tizzy! Check out my favorites below, but don’t miss out on the fiesta going on right now in the gallery.
From AE Planning & Design: Jamie and Justin live in San Francisco and really wanted to have a destination wedding in a warm location. Originally they were interested in Puerto Vallarta but the gals at AE Planning + Design encouraged them to also check out the Riviera Maya area of Mexico for comparison. They fell in love with the area and Le Reve Hotel specifically. They decided to buy out the hotel for the weekend to create an intimate setting for all their loved ones. They invited their closest friends and family for a weekend long affair.
Their ceremony was held on the beach before sunset and guests cocktailed around the pool before heading into the restaurant for dinner. The escort cards were attached to bottles of hot sauce for the guests to take home. Each table was named after one of the couple’s many pets and they did custom paintings of each pet for the table signage. Guests dined on Tikin Xix fish (a Mayan traditional dish) and roasted chicken with local vegetables. After dinner, everyone danced to a custom playlist assembled by Justin and Jamie. Guests then retreated late night to a bonfire on the beach.
