Whimsical Romance in the Mayan Forest

Stylized Photoshoot at Grand Velas Riviera Maya

Nestled in the Mayan forest, this stylized shoot depicts a dreamy destination wedding at Grand Velas Riviera Maya, filled with whimsical romance and décor:

-Simple but elegant, the cursive calligraphy on the stationary added the perfect amount of charm for a lovely first impression.

-There is no better way to welcome guests to a weekend at Grand Velas Riviera Maya than with a gift bag full of treasures and chocolates. Additionally, a customized letter was included, welcoming everyone along with a timeline of the events taking place.

-The inspiration behind this ceremony was a fairytale full of whimsical romance in the Mayan forest. To complement the lush greenery, the vendor team added various geometric shapes woven into lanterns hanging from the altar. Covered in florals from a palette of roseate, burgundy, and blush, its bohemian details coming together in beautiful harmony. An arrangement of different white wooden chairs and benches was the perfect statement.

-A wall of woven-framed mirrors guided the guests to their seats in white cursive calligraphy. It was ideal for a picture perfect background as guests came together for photos.

-Held over the sparkling turquoise water on a wooden balcony, the reception was adorned with natural local fruits such as grapes, delicious peaches, and an arrangement of delicate florals placed in ceramic vases. The Best Bride team created a pleasing aesthetic of amber and blush colored glassware, assembled with woven chargers and gold flatware. Interwoven chandeliers and wooden limewash candlesticks lit up as the couple celebrated their night over a romantic dinner with their closest friends and family. A simple yet delightful marble cake was displayed on a knit stool with gorgeous florals, creating the perfect backdrop. 

-The bride, adorned in an elegant white lace wedding gown made perfect by Ary Ilturralde, appeared as if she were dressed for royalty. A beautiful crown made of diamonds by Ellee couture Boutique rested delicately on her head.

This wedding was a romantic, Mayan forest fairytale surrounded by lush greenery. Raindrops began to fall from the sky as the day came to an end, making it all the more magical.
