This stylized, destination wedding inspiration shoot took place on the white sand beaches of colorful Cancun. Held at the breathtaking resort, Grand Velas Riviera Maya, it was the perfect backdrop for this radiant oasis. Venue sourcing and travel logistics were arranged by Wedaways travel 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 scenery. Designed and planned by Best Bride Wedding and Event Agency, and put together by La Distribuidora CDMX, this gorgeous altar united two 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 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. This vision was brought to life with vibrant table pieces, candles, and a gorgeous arrangement of flowers that filled the table with tropical splendor. 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 ensure both brides felt 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. Leora 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,” she explains, “so we decided to create a chalkboard wall, designed with customization and geometric figures to hold each name and table number. It also makes a beautiful backdrop for the brides and their guests to take pictures.”

Forget traditional white – when it comes to saying “I do” in a tropical setting like colorful Cancun, this stylized shoot represents the beauty behind vibrant colors like vivid oranges, yellows, reds, and purples. This flashy palette was also tempered by some simple details such as white table numbers, white wooden chairs, and white linens.

Thanks to Bohemia Photography, this team of vendors was able to capture every special moment down to the last detail.
