From the Bride… When Dave and I first got engaged we knew immediately that we wanted to have a destination wedding. Neither of us wanted a “traditional” wedding, and since traveling together has been a huge part of our relationship from the start, a destination wedding just fit. We both grew up spending most of our summers on the coast, so of course getting married on the beach would be perfect!

We told our travel agent that we wanted a place with a beautiful beach, high ratings, but still affordable for us to travel to (coming from the Northeast USA) and she immediately recommended the Riviera Maya area. We looked through all of the resorts available there, and quickly settled on Secrets Silversands because it was gorgeous, 18+, all-inclusive, and had great wedding options. We basically wanted to plan a vacation with our closest family and friends, and have our wedding be the pinnacle of the vacation.

Since we wanted our wedding to be simple the planning was really easy. The most important things to me were to have a great beach setting, and to be able to bring our photographer (Darling Photo)! The resort really took care of the rest of the details and I was able to focus on choosing my dress, the girls’ dresses, and finding great bouquets we could bring with us.

Our wedding day was perfect. I have relived it a million times and still wouldn’t change a thing. The resort spa nailed my hair, the weather turned out beautiful, and our wedding planner (and photographer, thank God for her) kept everything exactly on schedule. We had a great little ceremony on the beach, and then a fantastic cocktail hour beside the beach. If I could do it all over again I’d do it exactly the same!

From Photographer Diana Lupu … Looking back, there was so much heart behind this wedding and so much love surrounded this special couple, that even the weather reflected the array of emotions. From sunshine to happy showers to rainbows, it was an incredible event to witness and be a part of. The Fairmont Mayakoba served as the backdrop for this lovely destination wedding, which hosted guests from around the world. Friends and family poured in from around the country as well across the “pond,” England. Their ceremony was especially significant and beautiful, decorated with traditional elements that celebrated Nazaneen’s family’s Persian culture. The wedding merged Nazaneen and Stephen’s Iranian-English background and it was just the perfect day for this perfectly matched couple.

From Signature Event Consulting & DesignMeredith and Rob truly represent the romance, joy and beauty of a meaningful destination wedding. You could tell they were very committed to each other and to their beloved families and friends from day one. Every single decision during the wedding planning process was ultimately made to honor that commitment.

When planning a destination wedding, some couples face the challenge of elevating the chosen destination to a desired level of sophistication. For Meredith & Rob’s wedding, this was not a challenge at all. The wedding was hosted at the beautiful Riviera Maya, where we worked together with an amazing team to deliver an elegant, fresh and very romantic soirée.

Meredith wanted a décor that wouldn’t feel heavy or unsuitable for such a beautiful area. Elena Damy was in charge of the floral design. She created a graceful, delicate and elegant look with every single bloom. We worked with a soft color palette of blush, ivory and hints of green. It was just perfection.

From The Bride…My advice to future couples is to be connected and get to know your team of wedding planners and consultants, because if you trust and have confidence in them your day will be relaxing and you will enjoy every minute; communicate the vision you have for your special day and the elements that are important to you, but then let your team make your dream come true (they are talented and if you let them shine they will exceed every expectation); make it about you and your partner-to-be, this day is all about the two of you and your wedding should be an extension of you two. Take the moment in, as people will tell you the wedding will go faster, but trust us, it goes even faster than they say. Make sure to take a few minutes during the reception to step back and look around the room, take it all in. Because, I promise you will want to remember, the way the room looked, the way it made you feel, the expressions on people’s faces as they danced and every other detail that you no ticed because you helped plan those small things (the menu on the table, the table number, the centerpiece, the cocktail napkin, etc.). Finally, have fun! Say hi to people, but make sure to relax, have the food, dance dance dance, and have the time of your life. 

My favorite memory of our wedding day was that it was our dream made a reality and more. Specifically, two moments that stood out were (1) our ceremony, particularly the vows read by our Rabbi that Rob and I wrote to one another (without the other reading it) and that we held our rings over each other’s heart; this moment was so unique and special and (2) the reception, particularly that people had the time of their lives as evidenced by never leaving the dance floor. It was so much fun.
