From Canada to Cancun, This is a Perfect Destination Wedding

Consider this wedding photographed by Gideon Photography your virtual vacation to the beaches of Cancun. Think toes in the sand, sun in the sky, and love everywhere you look. Oh, and the pretty florals by VANESSA JAIMES Floral Design don’t hurt one bit either. More to see this way!

Clarianne and Brian had their amazing destination wedding on the beach in Cancun Mexico. Their ceremony on the sand with the azure blue Caribbean at their feet was breathtaking. Their reception feet away at the grand palapa at the Finest Playa Mujeres resort was absolutely stunning. Both Clarianne and Brian traveled from Canada with their families to Mexico for their destination wedding.

The decor by Archive Events was beautiful. Much of the sign elements and fans were made by the bride who is also a designer. This was a party to remember! The dancing was amazing with Clarianne and Brian having their first dance to their guests holding sparklers at dusk. Their photos along the beach were perfect, with the breeze cooling off the scorching Mexican sun.

Yucatan, Mexico Wedding With Loads of Old-World Charm

With guests attending from all across the world – Italy, U.S., South America and the North of Mexico – Lizbeth and Massimiliano knew a destination wedding in Merida made perfect sense. They wanted a feeling of old-world charm and the Hacienda San Diego Cutz did just the trick. Elizabeth Medina Photographic Artisans captured the day and you can see it all inside The Vault.

From The Bride…I’m from Baja, California and Massimiliano (Max) is from Italy, luckily he decided to study his PhD in San Diego, where we met in 2007. From the start it was an instant spark and a mutual feeling of being at home in each other’s presence. I now believe that when two souls find each other again, the imprinted memories simply come back.

We dated for a while, with our ups and downs, but with no less love. Max did not believe in marriage, or thus he said so. So when during one of our holidays in Italy he went down on one knee, pulled a beautiful sparkler out of his pocket and proposed, I was startled and speechless! Wedding preparations immediately followed.

We both agreed our wedding was a “once in a lifetime celebration” and we wanted to make ours an affair to remember. We were looking for a destination wedding, since guests would be coming from Italy, U.S., South America and the North of Mexico. We wanted something classical with old world charm. After considering several cities and visiting different venues, we were both enchanted the minute we stepped into the mesmerizing Hacienda San Diego Cutz in beautiful Merida! We immediately knew we had found the perfect place!

Our wedding had a piece of both of us in all the details we selected. Music for me is what makes the world go round, for him it’s food! So as much enthusiasm as I dedicated in selecting each song, he equally meticulously selected each edible item from the initial appetizers to the final after coffee. We had a wonderful wedding planner who made a huge production seem effortless. It was a fantastic night, filled with fireworks, a full orchestra, endless food, decadent desserts but most importantly it was filled with family, friends and love!

From Elizabeth Medina Photographic ArtisansLizbeth and Massimiliano are a well traveled couple. With the groom hailing from Italy and the bride from Northern Mexico, they have made their home on the West Coast of the US. It seems clear to me that this cosmopolitan couple could have been married just about anywhere. Having shared the wedding day with this lovely couple and the large group of family and friends who travelled to Yucatan for the wedding I feel qualified to say that they made the PERFECT choice! Seeing the surprised excitement of the wedding guests as they discovered the wedding locations was a great reminder- Yucatan packs a destination wedding punch that is all its own.

Mayan Riviera Destination Wedding

I consider it a really good destination wedding if I find myself mindlessly reaching for my piña colada (which, unfortunately, isn’t there) as I flip through the gallery. This one is really good. Heart + Sparrow Photography captured the very essence of the day, and that essence is warm waters, white sand, and buckets full of sweet love.

From the photographer… Anya + Brody live in Calgary, Alberta, one of the coldest places in the country, so they decided to get away from it all and marry in the hot and sunny Mayan Riviera, Mexico. For the 30+ family and friends who were able to take the trip across the continent, it was well worth the trip. Their wedding took place at the the beautiful Azul Sensatori Resort on the Skydeck of the resort, overlooking the oh-so-blue Caribbean Sea.

Anya was inspired by the turquoise of the sea as well as the floral accents that the tropical location provided, and her idea of the perfect wedding was one that was whimsical, yet incorporated Mexican elements like “Dia de los Muertos” skulls into the decor and invitations. Most of all, the bride and groom wanted an environment where everyone felt comfortable and ready to enjoy themselves! With a morning of an and off downpour, Anya + Brody married atop the resort’s rooftop deck, and the skies opened up to the most beautiful deep blue for an unbelievable and moving ceremony.

The reception was to take place in the sand, underneath the palm trees that had been strung with twinkling lights – however, the weather took a turn for the worse and the event had to be moved indoors to a nearby restaurant on the resort. Regardless of the change in location, the bride and groom weathered the storm with smiles on their faces. After a few heartfelt and hilarious toasts, the guests enjoyed a traditional Mexican family style meal followed by tequila and dancing! Anya + Brody’s wedding was truly an event to remember!
