Alena & Andrew were such a relaxed couple to work with - they made planning their wedding a breeze! The couple chose the Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Riviera Maya, Mexico for their destination wedding. Picking this resort for their big day was a no-brainer as they had vacationed there with their families many times in the past. The couple was very laid-back and wanted this to be reflected throughout their wedding weekend. Alena picked a bright, coral color for her touchpoint and we went from there with decor. Their guests' names and table numbers were written on drink flags placed in festive watermelon-habanero margaritas to get the night off to a spicy start! The reception tables were decorated with lanterns and the floral arrangements were meant to look "undone", again reflecting the relaxed theme. Guests dined on locally-inspired fare all weekend and danced the night away under the stars.
We are super excited to have Alena & Andrew's wedding featured on Jet Fete, an amazing destination wedding blog.

A big question we receive from prospective clients is "My venue offers an on-site wedding coordinator, so do I really need a wedding planner, too?" The short answer, which most on-site venue coordinators would agree with, is "Yes!". Why? The long answer is twofold:
After being fortunate enough to plan Greg's Proposal to Danielle, it was such a treat to then help plan their big day! They settled on a destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico, and went for an all white color palette. They couple chose to have the bridal party just consist of the Maid of Honor and Best Man, which perfectly were Greg's two kids. The whole day expressed pure beach elegance. Danielle walked down a white aisle runner as Canon in D played, and an abundance of star lights hung over the dance floor where the couple shared their first dance as Bride and Groom to Jason Alden's song Heaven. To keep with the festive and beachy feeling, the couple offered their guests mini bottles of tequila as their escort cards and take home favors, which were a big hit! Congratulations Danielle and Greg!
