Aya &  Edwin’s wedding took place the 23th of November 2016, in Nueva Vida de Ramiro.

The wedding ceremony was attending 45 guests and we can clearly say that it was a simple, elegant and harmonious wedding with some exotic touches and details perfectly reminding the tropical vibes and spirit of Tulum.

The couple knew exactly from the begginging, what they wanted for their ceremony. They also payed closely attention to all the details concerning  their guests so that they enjoy the wedding party in a high level.

As we love knowing the lovestory behind every wedding and also receiving feedback from our couples, we asked them to tell us more about their story, and all the choices they made for planning this very special day, and they were really pleased and happy to answer our questions.

How did you guys met?

“We met in English language school in New York.”

11-04-A+E-0005

Why did you choose Tulum for your wedding?

“We had a hard time choosing a place for our wedding because our families and friends are all over the world. Since we don’t get to see them often, we decided to do destination wedding to spend a whole weekend with all of them. We love being nature, especially beach is our favorite place. We started looking for somewhere with beautiful beach and found pictures of Tulum online. That was it!”

11-04-A+E-0030

What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?

“Intimate and cozy”

11-04-A+E-0201

What was your color palette and your style vision?

“We used neutral earthy colors such as green, beige, brown and white. Style vision was simple, rustic but yet romantic.”

11-04-A+E-0228

What unique elements or DIY details did you include? 

“We wanted to make sure our guests were having a good time. We prepared photo prop frame and photo props for our guests to have fun during cocktail hours and reception. Also provided flip flops on the dance floor so that they can take off their heels and dance comfortably.”

11-04-A+E-0208

What was your favorite moment? Your favorite crafted detail?

 “We loved every single moment of our wedding but our favorite moment was ceremony on the beach. Walking on the aisle barefoot was so amazing.”

Tell us about your flowers, your gown your favors, your cake, etc?

“Wedding gown: I’ve chosen effortless silk back less gown.
Flower: white flowers with different kinds of green leaves.

Cake: Vanilla flavored naked cake, decorated with green plants and colored flowers.”

11-04-A+E-0237

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?

“Know your priorities. Once you know what your priorities are, you can use more energy, time and money on them and everything else falls into places. You won’t need to stress out for the things that matters less.

I had no idea how planning for wedding with you being apart was going to be but it went much smoother than I excepted. Only thing was I wish we could see the layout of the restaurant where we hold our ceremony because dance floor space was isolated from half of the guests’ tables. I understand it is hard to see actual place when we are overseas.”

11-04-A+E-0232

What did you think about the services offered by Destination Weddings Tulum (not only for the wedding, but for your entie experience in Tulum)?

“We can’t thank enough! From planning to the date of he wedding, we weren’t stressed out about wedding because of you guys. My friend even told me 2 weeks before wedding that I don’t look like a bride because I was way too chill to be a bride.

When we met your team in Tulum for the first time in person, we felt so welcomed. You made our time in Tulum very special.”

MEAGAN & JASON : A TROPICAL WEDDING

FEATURED WEDDING

 

Another day, another wonderful destination wedding in TULUM!

 

Meagan & Jason’s wedding took place the 23th of April 2016, in Akiin Beach Club.

65 happy guests were attending the event.

 We can clearly say that it was a very sophisticated, elegant and harmonious wedding with some exotic touches and details perfectly reminding the tropical vibes and spirit of Tulum.

The couple was very meticulous and thought about every single detail so that all the guests enjoy the wedding party during the whole event.

We asked Meagan and Jason to tell us more about their story, and all the choices they made for planning this very special day, and they were really pleased and happy to answer our questions.

SO, what better way to jump into this story than reading Meagan and Jason’s own word ?!

1

How did you guys met?

We met while in graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania, but our paths finally crossed while we were both spending a summer in Denver, Colorado. On a whim, Meagan reached out to Jason about where to find the best margaritas in town, and the laughter and conversation has been flowing ever since

2

Why did you choose Tulum for your wedding?

 “Jon’s cousin has lived there for 12 years and he went with his family to vacation there. We continued to visit each year when we met. It was our first vacation together. Once you visit Tulum, you are automatically hooked! It is the one place where we can truly relax and feels like a home away from home

colage 3colage 5

What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?

I always envisioned an intimate ceremony followed by a big, extended dinner party with dancing.“

6

What was your color palette and your style vision?

We chose to embrace the natural qualities of Tulum by bringing in local plants, white flowers, and wooden tables. We are both architects, so simple, clean design was of utmost priority.

7

What unique elements or DIY details did you include? 

A large part of our vision was the triangle-shaped chuppah for our ceremony. We wanted our own take on the traditional archway, so decided to evoke a pitched steeple with large wooden beams and covered it in draped greenery. For details, we focused our attention on the paper products and placecard holders.

colage 3colage 7

What was your favorite moment? Your favorite crafted detail?

Oh, hands down: dancing to our favorite song in the center of a ring of sparklers. We had thought to simply walk through an aisle of sparklers, but Agnesh, our planner, brought up the idea of dancing in the middle of them. It was simply amazing.

colage 3

Tell us about your flowers, your gown your favors, your cake, etc?

For flowers, we went with white flowers paired with dark green. We relied heavily on squirly little white ranuculus   for the tables and the bridesmaids’ bouquets. My dress was a simple silk gown with a cathedral veil (which proved to be quite the adventure with the wind). A cake on the beach didn’t really made sense to us, so instead we opted for refreshing after-dinner fruit paletas (popsicles) and late-night churros. For favors, our guests were greeted with fresh coconuts, given a celebratory cigar, and sent home with a white shawl to protect against the evening breeze.

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?

To trust that somehow, against all odds, everything will come together. And it will be magical.

colage 3colage 4

What did you think about the services offered by Destination Weddings Tulum (not only for the wedding, but for your entire experience in Tulum)?

We were extremely happy. Laura and Agnesh really went above and beyond on the days leading up to the wedding and their coordination efforts on the day of the wedding (especially in the face of a surprise thunderstorm) were superb.
