Incredible Cancun Wedding Location: Nizuc Resort & Spa

nizuc

Have you ever been in a hotel room that you just didn’t want to leave? I’ve been lucky enough a few times, but never in one that I loved so much I didn’t want to leave it the entire time I was at the hotel! Well, until now. Nizuc Resort and Spa, located just on the edge of Cancun, Mexico has plenty to keep you busy but the rooms are so spectacular, you don’t ever want to leave to do any of it!

I recently touched down into one of their Garden Pool Villas, and they are, as they sound, complete with a pool inside the walls of your villa! With glass walls that open up the bedroom into the exterior, outdoor living rooms and showers, and a private pool for each, this truly is indoor-outdoor living at it’s finest. There may have been an indoor shower too, but why use it when the outdoor rain shower is calling your name?! Turn on your tunes (your iPhone connects with the speaker system throughout the villa property) and soak in the tube drawn for you by your butler and life doesn’t get much better than that (especially for honeymooners).

But Nizuc goes beyond just epic hotel rooms. The property is ideal for destination weddings too! With incredible infinity pools and decks perfect for private parties and a beach property fit for a fabulous Mexican fiesta, you can say “I do” indoors in their massive ballroom space overlooking the lagoon or outdoors in one of their iconic Caribbean wedding locations.

And no matter which venue you opt for, you can count on the weddings staff taking exceptional care of you. You may stay up late celebrating, but I witnessed them staying up so much later, just to make sure every detail was absolutely perfect for the pair tying the knot.

From a fabulous spa to a to-die-for daily breakfast buffet (complete with guacamole, of course), to complimentary paddle boarding, snorkeling and kayaking on its two beaches, Nizuc has it all. And once you’ve done it all, remember it also has oodles of romance with fire torches burning nightly, sunken lounges among the water installations, and the utmost of privacy in your villa, whether in the garden or overlooking the ocean from high above.  This might just be the sexiest hotel on earth!

Terra Nostra

If you want a modern, sexy place to honeymoon or host a destination wedding, then look to the outskirts of Cancun to Nizuc Resort and Spa where you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a place that couldn’t possibly be so easy to get to – just minutes from a major airport but miles from ordinary.

Tropical Wedding Inspiration Shoot in Miami

tropical weddings

Today’s tropical wedding inspiration comes to us from our friends at Alorè Event Firm who designed a tabletop look to share at The Walton House in Miami, Florida (where they have parrots to party with!).  These tropical wedding ideas work well in the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico, and even South and Central America where you’ll find oodles of parrots in the wild.  If you want a colorful big day, then consider this style as described by Alorè Event Firm.

This tropical oasis was created at The Walton House with the vision of Creative Director, Anna Noriega from Alorè Event Firm to embrace the true live nature component the venue had to offer. The use of palm leaves to cover tent poles was incorporated with draping to bring the outside in. The unique array of colors, succulents, summer blooms, tropical foliage, moss and not to mention mega Chandelier and Parrots gave the design an incredible “wow factor”.

Beautiful Outdoor Destination Wedding in Spain

destination wedding dresses

Álvaro and Rocío wed at a beautiful country house in Spain, where friends and family laughed and celebrated the night away. We asked the bride and groom to share a little insight into the big day and how it came to be.

The location held special meaning to the couple: It is a family country house in Spain. The best thing about it, it’s that you can have the wedding you really want to.

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, but in the end it all works out! At first we hired a wedding planner. She had a good taste but didn’t work well. So my mother and I prepared everything: cigar corner, table decorations, floral arrangement, lights, center pieces, the seating plan…

Destination Wedding Inspiration Shoot in Northern Italy

italy wedding locations

Today’s beautiful photo shoot comes to us from Northern Italy, at Villa Bria in Gassino Torinese, Italy to be exact! Destination wedding photographers Ludovica Lanzafami and Valerio Elia, shared this wedding inspiration (complete with a fabulous pup) with us.

The goal of this shooting was to recreate the special feeling of an Italian style luxury wedding blended with newer wedding concepts: the result is a wild and romantic wedding, somewhere between tradition and modernity. This is why we chose as location Villa Bria, an ancient Neoclassical villa located in Piedmont, and we gathered some of the best and most experienced wedding suppliers of Northern Italy.

Simmi provided the flowers and the decorations: Camilla Marchetti, the mind behind Simmi, chose roses, a traditional flower which represents love, ivy – standing for marital loyalty, statice – which means union, rice flowers and berries – which represent plentiness and good luck. The colours of the shooting were ivy green, gold, peach and a light cyclamen white. Camilla arranged the bouquet in a natural and profuse way: she bounded it with an ancient brooch which once belonged to her grandmother, a lovely and precious detail, full of memories of the beloved relative. The head-table was chosen for the great impact that it could have in a long 18th century gallery. We wanted to recreate an exclusive romantic scene crossing the past of the Villa and the present wedding style and trends. Daturi e Motta, an Italian excellence in catering service since 1923, arranged the table with stunning hand made glasses decorated one by one with pure gold, and simple plates decorated with pure gold leaf. The menu, designed by Simmi, was bounded with a green lace and a lacquer seal, a very appreciated detail in Italy. Menus and typography (invitations) was designed in the same way, and the invitation was wrapped ina beautiful silk envelope, closed with a green lace and a personalized laquer seal.

The decorations of the table were mainly glass and silver: the candlesticks were made of Boemia’s crystal, the vases in Murano’s blown vase glass, the candelabra were authentic antique pieces. The flowers in the mise en place were positioned one by one in order to magnify its beauty; more than 200 candles illuminated the gallery to recreate a breathtaking atmosphere, captured by the photographers at sunset first, then in complete darkness.
