Bride & Groom:

The beauty of the Riveria Maya extends beyond just Tulum.  If you’re interested in a more luxurious and classically elegant event, like our couple Lauren and Landon, the Grand Hyatt in Playa del Carmen may be the perfect place.  The chic details and natural beauty of the property worked splendidly together to create a magical wedding. 

The wedding day begun like any other with the bride and groom each celebrating the day with their respective wedding parties.  The bride and bridesmaids spent the morning being pampered by Zoe Elizabeth Makeup before donning their cream and ivory dresses.  The groom and the rest of the guys relaxed in the upscale resort until it was time to suit up in classic black tuxedos for the first look.

In order to spend more time on intimate bridal portraits, the couple chose to do a first look before the ceremony.  The slate stone walls of the Grand Hyatt provided a stunning neutral backdrop for the timeless black and white tones of their wedding attire.  It also fit perfectly into the upscale black tie feel of the wedding day.  

While the bridal party prepped for pictures, the rest of the wedding team was building the perfect ceremony and reception sites for the occasion.  One of the most unique ceremony sites in the Riveria Maya is at the Grand Hyatt Playa.  The wooden aisle extends through a pool of water onto a wider platform for the bridal party to stand next to the bride and groom.  In addition to lining the aisle with hurricane vases and candles, we also had candles standing on iron pillars in the pool as well for the ultimate romantic ceremony setting.   To top it all off, in the center of the ceremony platform Pure Love Floral Design curated a square floral arch covered in white roses, other white blossoms and tropical greenery.   

The couple opted for an early evening ceremony that allowed them to make the most of the oceanside sunset. After a few more sunset bridal portraits, the bride and groom joined the rest of the wedding party for a gorgeous reception.  The reception continued with the theme of simple yet elegant decor. White linens and gold decor filled the outdoor reception area.  Candles and overhead string lights were ready and waiting for the evening hours.  A mix of long narrow tables with low centerpieces and round tables with tall centerpieces lined the dance floor.   Guests and the bridal party alike danced teh night away with the help of Uno Audio Visual DJs.  Guests also enjoyed a neon sign, “All You Need is Love”, as a photo backdrop to remember the event!
