Villa La Joya Wedding | K & J

This intimate Villa La Joya Wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico will bring a smile to your face.

Kenia & Josue met a few years back and Josue just knew that she will be his wife one day. Time passed, they took different paths and when they reconnected the timing was finally perfect for their relationship to grow.

I’m honored to have been chosen to design this intimate love celebration at Villa La Joya (by the way, it’s my favorite beachfront wedding villa in the area). And also grateful for the friendship these two have offered me. We all had lunch together with my boy during my last trip to NYC.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful day full of love, happy tears, and incredible Latin music!!

Riviera Maya Hacienda Wedding | L & M

Livi & Mike traveled from the UK to celebrate their union with an intimate Riviera Maya Hacienda Destination Wedding in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico.

The Hacienda del Mar beachfront wedding venue is gorgeous and definitely one of my favs. It’s private, flexible and easy to work with. For the ceremony, we used the tropical garden area and the pool area for the wedding reception.

I loved how these two added a few personal touches to their day like a ring warming ceremony, songs by their nieces at the ceremony and a life-size cut-out picture of their rescue dog Apollo at the reception.

Live & Mike, thanks so much for your trust and for allowing me to be part of your day! And special thanks to the amazing team of wedding vendors that made this day extra special:

Blue Venado Mayan Wedding | N & J

Nathalie and James traveled to Mexico with a small group of friends and family to celebrate their love with an intimate Blue Venado Mayan Wedding just 15 minutes south of Playa del Carmen.

The famous shaman Eduardo officiated a beautiful and meaningful ceremony with the ocean and palm trees as primary witnesses.

The party continued with a delightful dinner under the beach club’s huge palapa restaurant. Everybody enjoyed the wonderful music and the tropical photo booth.

Xcaret Destination Wedding | A & B

I loved designing and planning Aimee & Billy’s Xcaret Destination Wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Their day was full of beautiful details, from Aimee’s cathedral lace veil to the bottles of organic Mezcal by Lula and hand-made wedding gifts.

Bonus? The location is simply breathtaking!! Ceremony at the iconic Chapel of Guadalupe followed by a fun reception at La Isla Restaurant in Xcaret. Enjoy!!!
