An oceanside paradise, Hilton Playa Del Carmen plays host to this regal affair. Our styled shoot by the sea is overflowing with soft blooms, sparkling crystal chandeliers and shimmering metallics while juxtaposed with rattan pendant lights and a variation of woods for both the ceremony and reception. 

Hilton Playa Del Carmen’s Infinity Deck is where our picture perfect couple, Raghbir and Shareen, cuddle up close perched on rattan peacock chairs. The cozy wooden gazebo structure serves as the Mandap and is expertly ensconced in soft florals such as garden roses in pink and ivory hues, fresh ferns, rosemary and assorted greenery. Opposites attract with the crystal chandeliers and rattan pendant lights which highlight the panoramic views of the ocean. The wooden bench seating with coordinating throw pillows allow guests to take in all the beauty in comfort and style. All floral design, decor and rentals provided by Cecilia Avellaneda of Velvet Event Design

Adorned in custom attire by Rachita Singh of Royal Indian Closet, Shareen looks nothing short of exquisite in her hand embroidered ivory bridal lehenga, custom head piece and coordinating jewelry. Raghbir’s jade velvet kurta is hand embroidered with an ivory thread to complement his bride. Hair and makeup by Styling Trio and henna by Lemons & Mehndi

Tucked on the Uxmal lawn at Hilton Playa Del Carmen, is a reception fit for royalty. The wooden structure (custom created by Velvet Event Design) is decorated with billowing white fabric, rattan pendant lights, crystal chandeliers and coordinating floral displays. From every vantage point there is something lovely to gaze upon. From the golden and ivory chargers with coordinating flatware and assorted clear and colored glassware to the golden candle holders with sage tapered candles and the high and low floral pieces, our couple is surrounded by nothing but beauty. Every element of this reception was designed, curated and provided by the talented Cecilia Avellaneda of Velvet Event Design.

The stationery by Minted is a perfect addition to this celebration in every way. From the rose gold foil-pressed placards and belly band to the soft pastel color of the envelopes, the pattern and colors of this stationery suite are romantic and an ideal match.
