Planning a destination wedding is no easy feat, but thanks to SIGNATURE, Event Consulting & Design every detail of this Riviera Maya affair went off without a hitch. From the bride who rocked a killer ballgown on the beach to the blooms all designed by Elena Damy, this tropical “I do” is going down as a favorite.

From Signature Event Consulting & Design…Meredith 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.
