AJ proposed to Jackie during their vacation at Grand Velas Riviera Maya. The resort was so special to them that they couldn’t think of a better place to say “I do”. We were honored to be a part of such a joyful day!

Jackie and Alvin, or AJ, decided to tie the knot last year in the Riviera Maya in a beautiful beach setting; the two of them with their family and closest friends.

Such a perfect day simply had to be shared with all of their loved ones and the couple made sure that all of the most important people in their lives were present during the ceremony- even those who aren’t physically in this world anymore. The ceremony featured a special tribute to AJ’s mother and Alvin’s grandmother; Alvin also attached lockets containing photos of them to Jackie’s bouquet – a wonderful way to honor those close to their hearts.

It was essential for them to have a Catholic wedding and a fun celebration afterwards. The Catholic ceremony was just as special as they had always imagined; having a spiritual connection and sharing it with your soul mate is a magical sensation.

After leaving the church the couple and their guests returned to the resort, where the light breeze and gorgeous afternoon light created a dream-like scene. The celebration went well into the night, with everyone dancing under the glow of the moonlit sky.

They decorated the reception in a soft pastel style, without choosing a particular color. The flowers, bridesmaid dresses and wedding décor was a mixture of colors in a soft palette. Both the bride and groom have such amazing personalities, which were reflected in their décor by DIY-ing the table numbers, table runners, escort cards, sweetheart table ribbon, an original paper garland and wooden letters next to the wedding cake.



This beautiful wedding in Riviera Maya was all anyone could ask for! Having the beautiful blue sea as a backdrop makes couples glow with happiness, not only in the photos but within. There is no better way to celebrate your marriage and lifelong commitment to one another!
