On the shores of sunny and vibrant Cancun, Mexico, Hyatt Ziva Cancun serves as the ideal destination for this colorful and dazzling styled shoot. The sparkling Caribbean sea and modern-meets-magical resort offers countless backdrops for our stunning couple.

Just steps away from the breaking waves, Hyatt Ziva Cancun’s beachfront gazebo plays host to 150 cascading floral garlands tucked inside the Mandap. White Vidhi chairs are draped with matching floral garlands for the ceremony. Louis XVI chairs in a linen fabric surround the saturated hues of the Mandap to balance the look. All floral, rentals and design are by Cecilia Avellaneda of Velvet Event Design.

Our couple is breathtaking and elegant in custom attire by Rachita Singh of Royal Indian Closet and hair and makeup by Styling Trio. Raghbir’s custom sea-foam green kurta and emerald velvet tuxedo shoes tie in perfectly with Shareen’s bangle accessories. Her baby pink bridal lehenga is hand embroidered with complimentary thread that ties into the groom’s attire.

Taking full advantage of the panoramic ocean views, the reception is set along the turquoise shore on Hyatt Ziva Cancun’s oceanfront Firepits Terrace. Wooden banquet tables are adorned with gold velvet runners, wooden candle holders with bright pink tapered candles, layered rattan and glass chargers, fuchsia napkins and a mix of colored glass goblets. The dynamic floral display allows the ability to be surrounded by colorful blooms without interrupting the view. The elevated floral feature includes a mix of colored roses and draped carnation garlands. All design, floral arrangements and rentals are provided by Velvet Event Designs.

The hot pink menus and table numbers by Minted bring another layer of color to this gorgeous tablescape by the sea.
