Romantic Garden Wedding in Tuscany, Italy

destination wedding dress

Collette and David said I do in a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in Tuscany, Italy. The couple shared with us their sweet story and how their destination wedding came to be.

Imagine getting married in a beautiful and romantic villa in the heart of Italy. That’s how we shared one of the most important days in our life together.  On September 14, 2016, we said “I do,” at Palazzo Rosadi, a wedding location found by ourselves. We knew it was where we wanted to get married.  So, we spent a week at the location with our friends during the wedding week.

The color scheme for the wedding was light and soft, but still very romantic.  The white, pastel purple, and light pink color added a natural, simple element to the beauty of the entire day.  Additionally, gold elements were scattered throughout the event to add a touch of elegance and sophistication.

Riviera Maya Wedding Location: Banyan Tree

mexico beach weddings

If you’re seeking a swanky destination wedding spot, one with a ceremony site on the sand, exquisite food from the region and beyond, and suites or villas that are possibly better than anywhere you might call home, then take a look at the beautiful Banyan Tree Mayakoba for your wedding in Mexico.

What stands out most in this idyllic spot isn’t its breathtaking beachfront or even its grand entry and lobby, open on all sides and complete with a boat dock for departures, but the suites that you stay in when you wed or honeymoon here.

When you check in to this paradise, you find yourself in a villa oasis complete with a full size swimming pool, jacuzzi, set of beach cruiser bikes, and floor to ceiling walls that open up to the great outdoors within your absolutely private compound.  That’s right, each guest or family stays within their own private walls which protect a garden or a rooftop pool, and even secluded views of the mangroves.  Life doesn’t get much better than this when you’re tucked into your home at Banyan Tree Mayakoba.

If and when you decide to emerge from your villa, which is actually hard to do since it’s so special, you’ll find modern event spaces, world-class cuisine and even cooking classes for families who like to experience the culture they find themselves surrounded by.

For your reception, this stunning beach palapa in a rustic white style just steps from the sand makes for a great party site for up to 350 of your closest friends and family.

You might even consider the nearby Catholic Church in El Pueblito for a religious event before you’re ushered back to the beach to celebrate.

No matter how you choose to wed at Banyan Tree Mayakoba, this is how you’ll retire at the end of the night, and even entertain, should a family BBQ in your villa be on the menu.

If a full size private pool, jacuzzi and even romantic outdoor bathtub is your style, then honeymooning here is the way to go too.  Even with friends and family on property, you’ll feel a sense of privacy that allows you to unwind – just for two.

Just be sure to make time for their famous Thai massages in the spa and award-winning restaurants.  Once you set foot at Banyan Tree Mayakoba, you’ll never have to leave…and you certainly won’t want to!

hotel-weddings-mexico

Today we’re sharing a “fake wedding” from a brand new destination wedding location in Riviera Maya, Mexico.  The swanky, modern resort, Andaz Mayakoba (part of the Mayakoba compound in Playa Del Carmen), was home to this fantastic fake fete where we got a sneak peek at what weddings at this beautiful property will be like.

Some of the best and brightest wedding talents of the region got together for the Mayakoba Casar, produced by the talented Just Moments Events, to showcase everything Mayakoba has to offer brides and grooms and the finale was this spectacular evening under the stars!

To kick it off, famed designer, Gabi Lavor and her team at Canteiro Weddings created this posh rose gold wedding ceremony on the Andaz wedding lawn.

As night began to fall, guests moved to one of the Andaz’s pool decks surrounded by jungle and a perfect fit for a celebration with bold, bright colors and even a few fireworks too!

During dinner, guests dined on delicious mushroom soup and other of chef’s specialities, all while enjoying the floral beauty by the lovely ladies at Blossom Cancun.

Overall the venue is the picture-perfect place to party and at the end of the night, you simply walk or catch a golf cart back to your room to retire.  It doesn’t get much better than that!

The service at the Andaz Mayakoba was wonderful, and the food was exceptional.  But I think the most standout moment to me was when they brought out hard plastic sippy cups for guests on the dance floor.  Once the party got underway, cocktails were served up in dance floor-safe cups so no spills occurred!  So smart and such a fun way to brand your after party!

The bride wanted the decoration to be minimal so we used babys’ breath and eucalyptus, and for the bride’s bouquet we used White garden roses, hydrangeas and babys breath, while on the guests’ tables we used succulents as table number holders. We had lots of candles on the tables which gave a lovely romantic touch to the look.

In addition to the big day, the group partied all weekend too!  The day before the wedding the guests were invited to an all white dinner at Blue Myth restaurant, where all guests had to be dressed in white. They enjoyed the Greek Mediterranean cuisine and they had the opportunity to see live Greek dancers and share with them their dancing skills!
