New Wedding Location in Riviera Maya: Andaz Mayakoba


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!
