Today’s glamorous destination wedding takes us to the luxurious Fairmont Mayakoba resort in the Riviera Maya, Mexico where the bride and groom exchanged vows beneath one of the most swoon-worthy canopies I have ever laid eyes on!
The joyous fete, coordinated by Planner 1 Events, boasted a charming, beach-chic palette mixing neutrals with delicate pink hues. Guests were later treated to colourful maracas which did double duty as whimsical escort cards and favors at the classic, elegant reception. Our many thanks to Acqua Photo who captured all of these dreamy details!
From Acqua Photo: We love to do destination wedding photography whenever the we can, but Ashley and Kamyar’s gorgeous Fairmont Mayakoba Mexico Wedding was quite a special treat! It wasn’t hard to convince their guests to hop on a plane and travel to the fabulous Fairmont Mayakoba, just a few miles north of Playa Del Carmen for their venue. Warm weather, white sand beaches, and a luxury 5 star resort? Ok, fine– I guess we’ll go!
The Fairmont Mayakoba is a truly unique sustainable resort that was built while keeping most of the surrounding jungle, mangrove forests, and rivers intact. In addition, the area boasts some of the most magnificent Mayan archeological sites at Tulum, Coba or Chichen Itzá (one of the new Seven Wonders of The World) and countless fresh water Cenotes for swimming.
The wedding took place on a private beach just before sunset with a rustic wooden aisle and billowing white sheer curtains framing the teal ocean and blue sky. Each bridesmaid selected a unique dress in blush, beige, or taupe, complimenting the sand and natural materials of Fairmont’s architecture. Our bride, Ashley, was jaw-droppingly gorgeous in a romantic gown by Vera Wang and with Audrey Hepburn hair Her beau, Kamyar, rocked a Burberry suit. They found such a perfect balance of elegance and nature. With all this beauty, we could have happily stayed forever.
