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. Natalie Andrusiak 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!

Mexican Hacienda Wedding Inspiration from Life Wonders Photography

Truth: I’ve never been to Mexico.  I know it sounds crazy (especially since I live in the Southwest), but it’s totally true.  It’s a trip I plan on taking and one that moved FAR up my vaca list the moment I laid my eyes on this pretty little shoot from Life Wonders Photography.  A shoot that can only be described as mesmerizing with gorgeous blooms from Magnolia Floreria Disenos Florales, a whole lot of beautiful gowns from Rebecca Marx and a seriously stunning Hacienda Temozon Sur setting.  See it all here.

From Life Wonders Photography… The inspiration for this styled photo shoot was drawn from amazing surroundings of haciendas scattered across Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico where the old world rustic, European romance meets modern luxuries. Once I moved to Mexico, two years ago, I was simply enamored with the haciendas and started out on a mission to visit them one by one. A mission that is yet to be accomplished.

Once the idea for this wedding photo shoot sprouted in my head I found Rebecca Marx who was more than happy to participate and showcase a few of her amazing bridal dresses.

Next, we contacted some of the best wedding vendors in Merida and brought them in together for this shoot. The flowers designed by Juan Pablo Camara Abreu of Magnolia Floreria Disenos Florales were splendid in very subtle shades of white, cream, pink and green.

The rustic furniture was provided by Fernando Antunano Olvera of Minimal Muebles Lounge and it fit the classic look of the hacienda.The glamorous dresses together with Spanish veil from Rebecca Marx were complemented by lovely accessories from Gertrudis Abdala Accesorios Novias. The make up and hair style provided by Yasser Rego.

The models were a real life bride, Pili Pina, and a real life couple (yet to be married but so in love) Maritza Heredia Torre and Adrian Gonzales, bring in true emotion to the event.

We even added videography by Real Life in Merida in order to provide full wedding experience to the future brides.

Lastly, the photo shoot took place in a very exclusive location, Hacienda Temozon Sur, a place that lends itself to glamour, beauty and style.

Tulum Wedding from Emily Blake Photography

It’s official. This gorgeous beach bride deserves some sort of serious medal. Because not only did she plan a destination wedding in locale she’d never even been, but managed to have a ton of fun along the way. The result? A day filled with fuss-free elegance that’s just begging to be saved, bookmarked and pinned. Sit back in total awe as we browse through the gallery of Emily Blake’s photos right here.

From the Bride…Having always wanted a winery wedding, I was shocked when I shouted out, “Let’s get married in Tulum, Mexico!” after Eli and I got engaged.  I had never considered a beach wedding before, but when faced with a real decision; the thought of hundreds of people at a winery didn’t really seem like us at all, but a warm beach in Mexico with a small group of our family and closest friends certainly did!  I had never been to Tulum and we didn’t have the time to make a special trip to scope things out beforehand.  Although my friends and family thought I was a bit crazy for planning a wedding in a place I had never been to before, I decided to approach it as an adventure and threw in a lot of faith for good measure!

When we found La Zebra online, we immediately knew from the pictures that this was the place we wanted to get married.  It had everything we had envisioned; unique, intimate, rustic, and directly on the beach.  I cannot speak highly enough about the management and staff of La Zebra.  They took care of us and our guests with the most warmth and kindness.

After we secured the venue, everything seemed to fall into place.  We hired Destinations Wedding Tulum to help us secure vendors such as the Spanish guitar player for the ceremony, the Mariachi’s, and the DJ.  I exchanged many many detailed e-mails with them and posted a lot of pictures to a shared Pinterest board so they could get a sense of what I wanted.  When the day of the wedding came, I was floored at how beautifully they pulled everything together.

My favorite moment of the entire day was when I walked down the aisle (with no shoes!) to meet Eli at the water’s edge to get married.  As we took each other’s hands, I looked around at all the people in the world that we love, all gathered in one place.  It’s an overwhelming, beautiful feeling that I’ll never forget.

Riviera Maya Wedding from Emily Steffen

Today I am dreaming of a breathtaking Riviera Maya wedding.  A wedding filled with chevron touches, beautiful colors (ahem, teal blue) and some of the world’s most stunning views.  In other words, I am dreaming of this gorgeous affair from Emily Steffen, which has me basically mesmerized with its darling details, adorable duo and laid-back vibe that is all kinds of crazy wonderful.  Care to take a virtual trip to paradise?  See so much more right here.

From Emily Steffen… Everything was inspired by the bride and groom’s relationship and journey…. with happy colors, like teal, orange and grey along with chevron patterns and the backdrop of the beach in Mexico, it was SURE to be a destination wedding that was a dream for Jeanne and Adam! Their goal was laid back and relaxed (with a few put-together details)! Chevron patterns came through from the invitations to the bridesmaids scarves, the teal color was not only represented in the bridesmaids dresses, but in the ocean backdrop for the ceremony, and the starfish seating chart served as a keepsake for the guests to take home too. And the authentic Mexican food for dinner was the perfect way to end the evening.

Mayakoba Rehearsal Dinner from Aaron Delesie + Lisa Vorce + Mindy Rice

If ever there were a rehearsal dinner that I wanted to curl up in and live forever, it would be right here in Mayakoba under those twinkling cafe lights. From the looks of this crazy good tablescape, you would have no idea that wild boars, boas, and crocodiles call these mangroves home. But that’s why Lisa Vorce is so amazing at what she does. With the help of Mindy Rice, she whipped this remote spot into a gorgeous dining wonderland. And Aaron Delesie was there to photograph every last angle of that wildly good-looking table. See it all right here in the full gallery. And we’ll be back in a bit with a really exciting project (and a giveaway!) involving some of these ever so creative creatives. Sit tight!


From Lisa Vorce…One of my all time favorite rehearsal dinners — thanks to our amazingly trusting clients Jaimie and Andrew! Despite the constant “no it’s not possible” answers we were given when I first sighted the property and all the warnings about mosquitos, wild boars, boas, and crocodiles… Jaimie and Andrew allowed us to push the envelope like we’ve never pushed before. Mindy and I have been long time fans of the Outstanding in the Field concept — so when I saw the extraordinary Mangroves at the Rosewood Mayakoba Resort –  I just knew we were destined to have one long table in the middle of the jungle (à la “Outstanding in the Mangroves.”) Our wooden tables, and Mexican dining chairs were perfection for the location. Mindy created brilliant tablescapes using all native jungle foliage. She had thin linear wood “troughs” custom fitted for our tables so we could have beautiful centerpieces while still leaving ample room for the family style dinner that was planned. Special details on the table included a beautiful loosely woven fabric overlay (one piece stretched along the entire length of the table!), stand-up menus made out of local Amate paper, tin votives (which were actually shiny silver tin votives that we specially treated to age them for a rustic look), vintage crocheted napkins, and tons of candlelight. Above the tables, our local contacts strong bistro lighting which helped define the space and gave us the perfect amount of ambient lighting. I could not have asked for better weather and a better evening. We may have pushed the envelope with the resort – but it was more than worth it. Rosewood did an extraordinary job and the event was incredible. The guests had a beautiful family style dinner under the starry sky with a Spanish guitar duo serenading them (mixed with the amazing sounds of the jungle… the birds chirping, the frogs croaking, and a boar or two snorting!) Muchas gracias Jaimie and Andrew for allowing us to do what we do. We truly adore you. And muchas, muchas gracias to the boars, boas, and crocodiles who graciously allowed us to dine in the jungle without popping in to say hello.

Mexico Wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa from Style Art Life Photography

New England is getting hit with yet another snow storm today, so I’m somewhat selfishly sharing this Mexico wedding by Style Art Life to virtually soak up all the gorgeous virtual sunshine. It’s for the greater good though, because this seaside soiree is just too pretty to pass up whatever the weather. It’s an example of why destination weddings are just so darn dreamy, and you can join me in a little faux sunshine right here.

From the Bride… Having been to the Riviera Maya before, we knew it would be the perfect setting when we decided to have a destination wedding. Our goal was to have a place that would be easily accessible for our guests but also more importantly, a place that was going to be all about having fun!

Since our wedding was a beach wedding set in Mexico, we wanted the wedding style to incorporate some hints of the sea to our Spanish theme. Wedding colors were chosen based on the colors found inside of a conch. Light peach, pinks, nudes & crème. We kept our ceremony décor simple and clean to keep the focus on the beauty of beach. We were blessed with perfect weather and kept the party going al fresco next to the beach for the reception.

Nelson proposed to me in Oia, Santorini in Greece and we had collected sand from both the Red Beach and the Black Beach during our stay there. This was not planned while we were collecting the sand but once we decided to have our wedding in Mexico, it became important for us that we used the sand from our engagement destination for the sand ceremony at our wedding destination. It made the sand ceremony that much more special for us.

We planned and designed all of the details of the wedding ourselves and did a lot of DIY projects. The groom hand drew the wedding map that was incorporated into our invitations with the help of our good friend Margaret Park who is a graphic designer. We had the most fun choosing our photo props and creating our photo prop signs which perfectly set the mood for what we wanted our wedding to be: Crazy!

Mexico Wedding from Renata Yagolnitzer

Next up, we’ve off to Mexico for a wedding that’s bursting with color + personality! Wanting something small and beach-side, this couple travelled to the secluded Yucatan coast with their nearest and dearest, rented out the beautiful La Zebra for the weekend and DIY-ed the celebration of their dreams (on a tight budget, nonetheless)!  Bridesmaids crafted the bouquets the morning-of, the invitations were all hand-typed on a vintage typewriter and the bride even helped design her own wedding dress!  Renata Yagolnitzer captured every.last.detail, and you can see the rest right here!

From the Bride… When Rubin and I decided to get married, we knew we wanted to do it with our toes in the sand. We also knew that we wanted it to be small and intimate, so we chose to have a destination wedding. We figured that since our love was so great, we needed more than one day to celebrate it. We decided to, with our guests, rent out an entire hotel and have a whole weekend of fun. We picked the Yucatan coast because of its pristine beauty. Tulum is a romantic and secluded town that offered us everything we could want in a wedding. It took us a long time to decide on La Zebra as our venue because there were so many hotels to choose from, but once we saw it, we knew it was perfect. They lovely people at La Zebra took care of our and our guests’ every need with unmatched care and kindness, and Victoria Holmes, La Zebra’s in-house wedding planner, treated our special day like it was her own. The entire team bent over backwards to give us the wedding of our dreams.

I looked at so many wedding dresses, but none of them felt like me, so I searched for a designer to help me create my dream dress. I found Rebecca Schoneveld Cheek, who creates romantic, effortless bridal gowns inspired by 1930s fashion. She has a studio very close to me in Park Slope, and together, we designed the dress I had always wanted. The unique experience of having a custom gown made just for me and getting to know Rebecca was one of my favorite things about the entire process.

Our budget was limited, so our wedding was the ultimate DIY event. I wanted to keep the decorations to a minimum since the location had so much natural beauty. We made the invitations ourselves using a letter press and Rubin’s late grandmother’s typewriter. I made all the faux mercury glass vases and votives myself, and our gorgeous chuppa was made with found driftwood by Colin Selig, a sculptor and family friend. The photography, cinematography, DJing and event styling were also done by our very talented friends; Ren Yags, Jeffrey Max, Trent Wolbe and Rebecca Bartoshesky, respectively. My bridesmaids did all the flower arraigning the morning of the wedding, and the groomsmen worked tirelessly with the staff to set everything up.

The week of the wedding was stormy and wet. It rained every day,  and every forecast said it would thunder and pour the entire day of the wedding. Victoria tried to convince me to plan to have the wedding at a covered location on the grounds of La Zebra, but I refused. I believed it would be a beautiful day, and the morning of the wedding there wasn’t a cloud in the sky! Not a single drop of rain fell on our perfect day. We had the ceremony on the beach, officiated by our Uncle Jack. For dinner, everyone got to build their own tacos, we had cocktails made with fresh-squeezed sugar cane juice and grocery store donuts for dessert (they were delicious!). We danced outside till 2 a.m. (even the parents) and ended the night by running into the water. We received enough love for an entire lifetime. It was a magical, ridiculously fun, heart-warming, once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Mexico Wedding by First Comes Love Photo

This wedding and the gorgeous images from First Comes Love Photo just puts my mind at ease. It’s one of those where you feel instantly transported to the ceremony site when soaking in all the dreamy destination details. I can almost feel the sweet Mexico rays of sunshine on my face and hear the mariachi band strumming away. From the bride’s perfectly swishy dress to the groom’s sand colored suit, it’s everything that is fabulous about a destination wedding, and there is even more Mexico in the full gallery.

From the Bride… Rory and I chose to get married in Tulum, Mexico because it’ s a magical, beautiful place, and we wanted to keep our wedding a small and intimate affair. We always dreamed of having all our closest friends and family together somewhere sunny and sandy to celebrate with us. We had 40 guests join us on October 30, 2010 for a week long celebration of love and togetherness, and we couldn’ t be more pleased with the way everything turned out.

We were inspired by the culture and natural elements that surrounded us. We incorporated tropical leaves, white sands, and the vibrant colors of Mexico and its traditional folk art into our décor. We had custom papel picado flags and banners made that mirrored the save the dates and invitations. The flower colors were bright pinks, oranges, with green and gold accents on the tables, against clean white tables cloths. I made the seating cards, and brought the glass sphere place card holders, that I ordered online, which held sand and grasses which we collected on site. The leaves that sat on the table under the place card holders and candles were gathered on site as well. My mom and I brought down suitcases full of stuff for décor and welcome bags, including pretty sandlewood fans for guests to use, and the white honeycomb paper globes that were hung in the reception area. We also scoured the town of Tulum for unique little gifts for the welcome bags and communal basket at La Luna.There were so many little elements that made it really pretty and special, and to help make our guests comfortable. It was a lot of work, but so worth it in the end.

My dress and Rory’s suit were by J. Crew. My dress, oh I wish I could wear it again, was a limited release and oh so beautiful, and so pretty in the setting we were in, a sandycolor with gold tones and lots and lots of flowing French tulle. I wore a very special vintage pin (my something blue) on my dress that was a gift from my aunt Madalon, which had been passed down from my grandmother, a gift from my jeweler grandfather. I also held a beautiful embroidered handkerchief that is my mothers, to wipe away all the emotional tears during the ceremony. My gold earrings were also my mother’ s that she used to wear all the time. The flower in my hair was made for me at the Silver Moon in Chicago, with a vintage button center that I chose from their collection. My engagement ring and wedding band were vintage platinum pieces purchased from a close family friend, a man whom my grandfather mentored in the jewelry business.

We all went barefoot for the ceremony conducted by the local duo of Charlie and Maria. Charlie calls this ceremony a “cosmic wedding,” and it was a truly beautiful moving experience.  We loved how interactive the ceremony was, and that in the end each and every guest played a role in our union.  A five piece Mariachi band dressed all in white began to play immediately following the ceremony, and led ourguests to the bar for fresh margaritas.

Our fabulous photographer, Alison Bank was one of the best decisions we made. She captured the day with such love and light, and was such a wonderful calming person to be around on such an important day in our lives. She was great at wrangling people for group shots and was totally unobtrusive during the ceremony. I am so in love with our wedding photos, they are stunning.

Staff of La Luna created an amazing authentic Mexican buffet of traditional Yucatecan dishes, and sourced an incredible tres leches cake from a bakery in Tulum village that we topped with a Dia de los Muertos bride and groom we purchased in town. Every aspect of the wedding that was taken care of by Jacob and the staff at La Luna far surpassed our expectations, they never cut any corners, and were just awesome people to be around. We can’ t imagine having held our event anywhere else.

It’s so touching, so completely beautiful. And now, we are taking a peak at some of the still photography, which the team does equally well…

mimmo + naz

There are very few companies that are equal parts talent in cinematography and photography. A lot of people claim to be, but usually one side doesn’t quite match up to the other. That is SO not the case with Mimmo + Naz. Just when I thought I had seen all of the gorgeousness I could imagine with their video reel, they sent us these photographs. Loving. Every. Bit.

Real Wedding: Mimmo + Naz, III

We always drool over pictures of the brides style here on SMP…well, I thought it was about time we saw a few of the gorgeous groom’s style! Take a look at these absolutely incredible images shot by the oh-so-talented team at Mimmo + Naz

These photographs are my idea of perfection…they are clean and simple, with a focus on the details. Each image tells a story, from the delicate shot of the bride’s jewels to the absolute joy that is filling the bridesmaid’s face. So, so beautiful. Mimmo + Naz just might be my new obsession.

Real Wedding by Mimmo + Naz

So much more to come from the oh-so-talented team at Mimmo + Naz.

Mimmo + Naz

When my husband saw this clip from the INSANELY talented Mimmo + Naz, he actually turned around and said, “this one is pretty amazing.” To get a glowing compliment from him is like gold, so I knew that I had to share it with you guys.

The video was shot on Super 8 film and as the team at Mimmo + Naz says, “it is the most gorgeous, magical medium that endures the test of time and truly connects directly to the human heart.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. The clip reminds me of a fabulous love story, with moments that make you cry they are so beautiful. A love story that I would watch over and over and over again.

But perhaps the most unique thing about this talented crew, is that the artists at Mimmo + Naz are as skilled at photography as they are at cinema. A real rarity. And, they’ve been sweet enough to provide the photos from today’s featured wedding. Brace yourself, they are shockingly beautiful. Stay tuned!
