“AMAZING! Everything you could want in a wedding planner! Spent a LOT of time with me and went above and beyond. I felt so capable with her in control. There is so much to worry about as a bride, that it is amazing to have a planner that you trust to take control of everything else. She was sweet, easy to work with, a hard worker, and put in TONS of time and effort. We had a lot of vendor issues and miscommunications with other people working on our wedding, but never once had trouble with Arlenis. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and that is HUGE thanks to her! WE LOVE YOU ARLENIS! EVERYONE should hire her!!!!!!” – Katherine & David. Los Angeles, California, US
I loved being part of Carrie & Austin’s intimate El Paraiso Hotel Tulum Beach Wedding in Mexico! With a perfect blue sky, breathtaking views of the Mexican Caribbean and a team of incredible local wedding vendors; this wedding was turned out to be one of the most beautiful love celebrations I’ve ever done.
Bonus? These two are super in love and had the time of their lives!!!

This wonderful group traveled from Washington to the white sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera to celebrate Autumn & Scott’s Playa del Secreto Villa Wedding in Mexico.
Keeping things simple to maximize the fun, these lovebirds chose Villa La Gran Tortuga for their destination I-do’s.
The team at Mejores Banquetes did a wonderful job with the decor and delightful dinner. The night ended with tons of fun dance moves around the pool and many laughs and happy tears. All photos by Susanna Antichi
Check out this Tropical Tulum Beach Wedding at Amansala Tulum, Mexico designed for one of my favorite couples: Katherine & James.
Katherine’s vision of an intimate and fun beach destination wedding came to life in 2016. We used just a few colorful tropical flowers as decoration to allow the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean take center stage.
After a sweet beach wedding ceremony, guests cooled down with fresh coconut water while the happy newlyweds had their pics taken with the most gorgeous sunset I’ve ever seen!!
The party continued with rooftop cocktails and dinner at Amansala’s restaurant. Congratulations my sweet lovebirds.
Chena & Jaamal came to me to design their Hacienda del Mar Mexico Gothic Wedding in the quiet town of Puerto Aventuras, just south of Playa del Carmen.
Rocking red lips, a birdcage veil, and black wedding dress, Chena walked down the aisle in true fashion!! Her fine groom also rocked a black suit!
The Hacienda’s beautiful garden area was the perfect place for their intimate wedding ceremony. This venue is so beautiful, that just touches of greenery and gold details were enough to dress the place for the occasion.
Special thanks to all of the amazing vendors that made this day possible:
Adventure lovers, Anna & Christian, celebrated their love with an Intimate Bacalar Destination Wedding just south of the Mayan Riviera, Mexico.
This was my first of hopefully many weddings in the remote but breathtakingly beautiful town of Bacalar!! Preparations began early morning at Casa Blanca Hotel Boutique.
After a few first look portraits, friends and family gathered at Jardin Paraiso Bacalar for a dreamy wedding ceremony in front of the Lagoon of Seven Colors. Celebrations and dances continued until late hours. Hope you enjoy this gorgeous gallery by Naal Wedding Photography.
Chelsea and TJ from Colorado, traveled to Mexico with a close group of friends and family to say their official I-do’s with a Tulum Boho Beach Wedding at El Paraiso Hotel.
These two were so easy and fun to work with, always smiling and madly in love!!! Chelsea’s lace boho wedding dress was perfect for Tulum.
Their beach wedding ceremony officiated by one of their best friends had minimal and rustic decor; which allowed the beautiful turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean to take center stage.
After a session of fun and dreamy sunset beach portraits, Mr. & Mrs. Fisker danced the night away surrounded by palm trees and the beats of the amazing Plug In Audiovisual Team. Enjoy this gallery courtesy of Coldiron Photography.
Katie & David tied the knot with an Intimate Villa La Joya Wedding in Mexico.
Surrounded by a small group of friends and family and with tons of romantic details, these two said I-do at the entrance of the luxurious Villa La Joya venue in Playa Paraiso, Mexico.
After their beach sunset portraits and a fun cocktail hour, the night continued with dances and fireworks by the villa’s ocean front pool area. Check out the gorgeous pictures by Quetzal Wedding Photo.
“The words said over and over again by all friends and family – “Best Wedding EVER!!”We had ~60 guests for a 4 day 3-night wedding vacation at Le Reve Hotel on July 5th, 2014. Guests flew in from LA, SF, the Midwest, Phoenix, China, and Iran. We paid for everyone’s stay and excursions during those 4 days. The buyout of the hotel was amazing. I read through many reviews of Le Reve and thought that yeah it would be nice and the wedding would be fun but did not expect the magic of Arlenis and Le Reve to occur. It is really difficult to fully describe those amazing days without being there.
Every detail, every moment, I wish I can relive over and over. Arlenis not only did her job but really cared about us, like it is her own wedding. Many friends of mine had extravagant weddings themselves and they all agreed this was the best wedding ever.
Jumping into the pool at the end of the wedding party with our clothes on was “one off the bucket list” as quoted by my closest friends. We had welcome dinner Thurs night, excursion Friday and wedding Sat in the pm. The weather was just perfect for each moment. Everyone did not want to leave, did not want it to be over and I am soo glad we chose Le Reve and Arlenis!!!” Lisa & Hosein from Los Angeles, CA, USA
“Arlenis, thank you so much for the wonderful job you did with our wedding in December in Playa del Carmen! You were there to help us every step of the way and to advocate on our behalf. I always appreciated your responsiveness, your creativity, and your attention to detail. Please let me know if we can ever give a prospective client a recommendation for your services!!” – Rosabel & Keith from San Francisco, California, USA
