From Del Sol Photography… Bride Leanne has a wealth of experience with destination weddings managing her own event coordination business in the Riviera Maya. Planning hundreds of weddings a year, she is definitely a bride who knew how to put together an incredible experience for herself, her groom and her guests. Her extensive knowledge of venues and vendors in the area ensured a perfect and unique day. Bride and groom met doing acro-yoga and incorporated their passion in the ceremony, the reception and the trash the dress shoot in a cenote.

The ceremony in the Pueblo Sac-Be amphitheater and the reception in a private villa in Akumal were intimate and very personal, the newlyweds were surrounded by the beauty of nature, pretty decor and the love of their family and friends (and their dog Charly of course).

From The Bride…I actually never thought I was going to get married. Not in the “can’t find a guy to marry” kind of way, but in a more “I’m 100% happy being my free spirit self, able to go and play as I please.” Then, of course, the right guy came along and my world was changed and somehow I ended up engaged (I’m pretty sure it was my idea!)

The wedding location, an outdoor amphitheater in the SacBe eco development of the Riviera Maya, was our location of choice. It held a lot of special memories for me during my time living in Playa, and a jungle setting with a cenote in the background was exactly what we were looking for.

Aaron & I agreed that Matt of del Sol would be our photographer of choice, we were soooo EXCITED when we found out Deborah was our second shooter! And not only that, Sol would be coming along as well. WOAH! Of course Marcos from Artevelas had free reign to do as he pleased with our venue, since truthfully, I trust his taste more than my own. And Maju, my amazing business partner, would be there to run the show along with my favorite DJ – Mood Events. It all came together so nicely.

Probably the biggest gift was from Aaron’s Brother-in-Law and my Spiritual teachers from Ananda Yoga Desde el Corzaon who put together the most meaningful ceremony would could have imagined. Bringing together those two elements really represented who we are as a couple and allowed all of our family, friends, and loved ones to know us a little deeper that day.

From the Bride… When Dan and I began planning our wedding, we knew we wanted it to be a laid-back, fun, and beautiful adventure to bring our closest friends and family together. We found Villa Amor on Style Me Pretty and loved what we saw. We planned a quick weekend getaway to travel to Mexico and immediately fell in love with not only Villa Amor, but the whole town of Sayulita.

I love any and all DIY projects. I started with our wedding invitations, which included RSVP cards that were written like Mad Libs. When I was done, I still had extra fancy paper which I wanted to use for another wedding project, I just didn’t know what yet.

I started thinking about table names and wanted to do something unique. All of our guests were Americans and the majority of them spoke limited or no Spanish. I thought it would be fitting to have table names after Spanish love or wedding words. Then at each table, the table name was displayed similar to a Spanish – English dictionary. For example, our table name was “La Boda,” which means “The Wedding” in English. I also made place cards with the same matching paper as the table names.

Another fun DIY project I did was the wedding maracas. I ordered plain painted pink and purple maracas online from a party store. Then a girlfriend and I drew Mexican folk art hearts (Milagros) on each maraca using gold Sharpie. There was a maraca at each guest’s seat at the dinner table.

I would have loved for every item at my wedding to be a DIY project, but time didn’t allow for that, so I turned to Etsy, where I ordered tags for the maracas, “Hola!” welcome bags, and wedding programs.

I also made a “Wedding Day Survival Kit” for my husband-to-be. I ordered custom cuff links from Etsy. Each cuff link was a map; one of Sayulita, the other of our home, San Francisco. I also ordered custom collar stays from Etsy that were engraved with our wedding date.

Our wedding ceremony was at Don Pedro’s Palapa on a gorgeous bluff overlooking the ocean. Dan’s aunt performed our ceremony and we each wrote our own wedding vows. Then guests were shuttled to the “Gran Villa” at Villa Amor. Guests enjoyed fresh coconuts and cocktails on the patio of the Gran Villa overlooking all of Sayulita. Next we moved to the brick courtyard for dinner and dancing. Dinner was delicious; we opted against cake and instead had a couple making fresh churros on the patio for dessert all night long. Everyone had a wonderful night of dancing and we concluded the festivities with a surprise fireworks display overlooking the ocean.

Beach Resort

From Travel & Events With Style… Sweet and sunny; lace and orchids; this is the simplicity that made this wedding by the beach lovely. Leanne and Ryan are on of the couples where love surrounds them at all times. Tight family units, silly infectious laughter, was the “sugar and spice” that made this wedding more than just “nice.”

Decor was inspired by beachy itself. When the overall vision was created, it was focused on traditional things such a lace to inspire the traditional aspect of family. While the white and beige mirrored the beach and the surroundings. Fun, silly, yet elegant. This couple made for wedding simple yet perfectly planned wedding in paradise.
