Bride & Groom:



Photos by:







Beautifully understated, magically tropical and wonderfully relaxed, the only way to describe Meina and Gregg’s beach wedding.


Just imagine, walking towards the aisle, your toes in powdery white sand, you begin to hear the palm trees rustle on the gentle breeze and the waves kiss the shore. The soft aroma of the ocean and freshly picked flowers caress your senses and there he is, your groom, the man you’re about to vow to spend the rest of your life with, smiling back at you. This was the reality of our stunning bride and groom Meina and Gregg.


Our happy couple decided to say “I do” at the magnificent Grand Coral Beach Club in Playa del Carmen on a wonderfully secluded Caribbean beach. Their friends and family sat eagerly awaiting the bride under the shade of towering palms and a close family friend took his place as the ceremony officiant under an archway adorned with tropical leaves. Once Meina had made her way to join the love of her life at the front of the crowd, one of the most hilariously beautiful and fantastically personal wedding ceremonies took place. Be it from crying or laughter, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.


Once the vows had been said, laughs had been had and promises had been made, the excited wedding party left to enjoy a few cocktails while the newlyweds went for a stroll on the beach with the fantastic Button Up Photography team. After a once in a lifetime photo shoot, Meina and Gregg rejoined their guests to enjoy a delicious wedding dinner. Each table was elegantly decorated with exotic plants, palm leaves and flickering candles, bringing a little magic to this tropical beach wedding.


After dinner, the bride magically transformed into a stunning red Chinese dress and the groom opted for a slightly more comfortable outfit to throw some shapes on the dance floor. This wedding party sure knew how to party. After the customary father-daughter dance, Meina and Gregg showed off their fantastic dance moves, ending with a show-stopping finale that included shimmering fireworks and sparklers.


This tropical beach wedding went on long into the night with friends and family laughing, grooving away on the wonderfully disco-esque LED dance floor and making memories that will last a lifetime. We feel truly blessed to have been able to make Mina and Greggs dreams a reality, and give such a beautiful couple their perfect wedding.


HIRE MANGO WEDDINGS NOW! If you want a stress free planning process, hiring Mango Weddings will be the single best decision you’ll ever make. We would give Mango Weddings 10 starts if we could. Mango Weddings anticipated every need we had and took care of every detail to ensure that we had a stress free event. That way we could focus all of our attention on being with family and friends. Even our wedding guests were raving about how great Mango Weddings was and already asking when we’ll do our vow renewals.


We are from Washington DC and wanted to plan a destination wedding for a rather large party (60 guests). We needed wedding planners that we could trust to help us make decisions from afar, planners that would keep us on budget and had a reasonable fee (!!), and planners that would always put us and our wedding guests first. From our very first phone call, Mango Weddings was extremely responsive, responsible, and reasonable. Anastasia took the time to understand what kind of wedding we wanted and helped us prioritize our desires. She was extremely commutative during the entire process and made sure to only recommend trusted vendors.


In addition to the wedding, Mango Weddings happily helped us plan a site visit, a Welcome Dinner and helped us secure tours for our wedding guests Just to give you an idea of the miracle workers these planners are, during our Welcome Dinner, my mom had inadvertently left her iphone in a taxi. I thought for sure we would never retrieve the phone, but somehow, they worked their magic and found the phone for us.


As for the wedding, it was beautiful, magnificent, and was better than what we could ever imagine. Our friends and family had so much fun, they dubbed it the “best wedding” they’ve ever been to. If there were any problems, we certainly didn’t notice it because Mango Weddings resolved it before it ever got to us. Thank you Mango Weddings x100000 for being planners extraordinaire!
