Easy like Sunday Morning

Photography by Vincent Ribon & assistant Alfredo

As their friends use to say, “Chezlie and Joey do it all reverse”. After the birth of their daughter 7 years ago and their little boy of 3, they decided to get married! The two grew up together and even if it took some time, all of a sudden, “I recognized that it was you, that it has always been you and always will be you”, as Chezlie described their relationship.

As for Chezlie and Joey the calming effect that sun, sand, a soft breeze and a drink with an umbrella in it can create, the choice for a destination beach wedding went without thinking. Then the planning process was carefully elaborated together with destination wedding planner Kimberley Richmond as they wished their wedding to be fun, classic, “easy like Sunday morning”, intimate and beautiful, with a party filled with love, joy and laughter. As planning a destination wedding needs precisely chosen descriptions to make clear to vendor who live hundreds of miles away what you have in mind, Chezlie came up with “the look like an old cathedral: rich and textured feel, heavy dark, rustic woods, accompanied with intricate metals, lots of color, lace and candlelight”. Latin Asia Flowers, together with the decor of Alquimia pulled the job off to translate this ambience in the setting of sun, sea and palmtrees. So Chezlie and Joey could just relax, sit back and enjoy!

Over the rainbow

Photography by Vincent Ribon & assistant Jasive Garza

Alejandra doubled roles! Actually I got to know her years ago as a diligent wedding coordinator at Solen, one of the most established event coordinators of the region and she now became the wedding planner of her own celebration. As this wedding had to be a fabulous showpiece, Alejandra admitted during our pre-wedding meeting that combining the identities of a wedding planner and a bride signified a great personal and professional challenge! But thanks to her experience built throughout the  years, Alejandra knows the tricks and tips of how to leave the trodden paths and customize a wedding event. What a nice discovery it was when they took us to a place I had never seen before: Secret Jewel (15 min drive from Playa del Carmen direction Cancun). As the name says, a secret place that has it all: a Catholic chapel for the ceremony (the only one at the seashore in all Riviera Maya!), an untouched piece of the famous white sandy beaches and a reception site between the palm trees to party under the stars or a palapa if you don’t want to have your toes in the sand.
The idea of a rainbow pupping up by looking at Alejandra’s bridesmaids is not a coincidence at all. Alejandra’s desire to reflect her fascination for rainbows, she even made her bridesmaids dress in the lively colours of the iris. Did she also assign each coloured ribbon of her special “rainbow bouquet toss” to be held by the señorita with the according dress colour? Anyway it was a lot of fun and suspense rouses while the bride goes cutting one ribbon after another, until there is only one left …the next bride! No girly catch with broken heels, flowers teared to pieces; if it’s your destiny it will hit you.

ON STAGE

Photography by Vincent Ribon & Vincent Guihard & assistant Alfredo

Playa del Carmen and the Mayan Riviera have a name for hosting some of the most exclusive parties where the rich and famous get together to have a little party while enjoying margarita’s and all good the caribbean has the offer. This time Broadway gathered for a party no one would ever forget, as one of them was getting married. That’s how Rosewood Mayakoba got to host his own broadway show with guests singing and dancing the nights away. At the welcome coctail Lee was clearly blown away by his bride to be as Lauren started a surprise act with a song she wrote about their story. Even during the wedding ceremony a ‘pop up’ performance accompanied Lauren while she was walking down the aisle to tie the knot beneath a whimsical, floral Chuppah creatively crafted by master florist Saku that reflected perfectly the bride’s, “earthy, bohemian, elegant” vision for the wedding. And as if all those musical and visual spoiling wasn’t enough the party took of with a big bang with the talented Soul Street featuring Reggie Woods; the band that played at Billy Joel’s and Sir Paul McCartney’s weddings and now accompanied Lauren, Lee and their guest’s in their inexhaustible drive to sing and dance and laugh. With a special thanks to destination wedding expert Kimberley Richmond from New York who coordinated the whole show immaculately.

WET & WILD

Photography by Alfredo Peral, assistants Juan & Iago

Carrie and Evan came to the caribbean to really enjoy their wedding at the maximum. To take of the pressure a wedding does often incites, they had a civil wedding before in their hometown NY. That way they had their hands free to organise and live the day at their hart’s desire and they both had indeed a very clear wish for this day. Carrie wanted to live and experience at the fullest the day as a bride; the little girls dream of the perfect dress, hair & make up, all in order to appear just breathtaking for the love of your life. Also the aspect of sharing this moment with family and friends was very important for both of them. Evan was very exacting about the music, as this was to be the wildest party. All this was done, starting with a ceremony, as Carrie desired, under the open sky, no matter the rain. This is were the impeccable service at Banyan Tree Mayakoba was most felicitous as they did everything they could to comply with the bride’s wish and so did we. Let’s get wet! As often in the caribbean, the raindrops run dry and under a dramatic sunset sky a wild party took off.
