This colorful styled destination wedding shoot took place on the white sandy beaches of Cancun. Held at the breathtaking resort Grand Velas Riviera Maya, it was the perfect backdrop for this a radiant Cancun oasis. Venue sourcing and travel logistics were executed by Wedaways travel agency. The designs, planning and the below description of the styled shoot below are by Best Bride wedding and event agency:

With palm trees blowing in the salty breeze, a path of vibrant roses led up to an altar full of color that framed the stunning scenery. Put together by La Distribuidora CDMX, this gorgeous altar united the beautiful brides for the exchanging of wedding vows. This day was created for any couple with a fun and playful side or for those unafraid to dip into some color to create a magical day that would wow any guest.  

The reception was held in one of the most beautiful of all-white ballrooms, which was part of the inspiration that gave Leora, owner and head planner at Best Bride, a blank canvas to create whatever she could imagine. We brought this vision to life with vibrant table pieces, candles, and a gorgeous arrangement of flowers that filled the table with breathtaking tropicals. Presented by Bespoke Cancun Bakery was a three-tiered cake covered with rainbow florals, complementing the turquoise Caribbean ocean backdrop.  

Wanting both brides to have their own unique look, Atelier Novais put together two beautiful wedding gowns. These gowns were both different to show each individual bride’s personality. Dominique Tiaras and Ellee Couture Boutique made beautiful headpieces and tiaras to make both brides feel like princesses on their special day. 

There is no better way to welcome guests to a weekend wedding getaway than with individually packaged welcome bags. We chose beautifully woven purses that included a cute pair of orange heart-shaped sunglasses and customized toiletries wrapped in colorful floral packaging with the couple’s initials displayed on it. Additionally, a customized letter that welcomed each guest to their oasis was added as a personal touch. 

We wanted to create something playful and fun for the table seating so we decided to create a chalkboard wall. Designed with customization and geometric figures to hold each name and table number to display. It also makes a beautiful backdrop for the brides and their guests to take pictures in front of.  

Forget traditional white- we were not afraid to dip into color and mix and match with this color scheme. Using vivid oranges, yellows, reds, and purples, these pops of citrus created a fiesta inspiration. With choosing a palette of flashy florid colors we also wanted to add some simple details such as white table numbers, white wood chairs, and white linens.

Thanks to Bohemia Photography, we got to capture every special spectacular moment down to every little detail.
