    ***Update***
    We plan on updating this post as time goes by as we feel like these weddings will help any bride planning an event in the Riviera Maya visualize a potential location.

    * = 1st update Update on 11/05/07 contains 22 more weddings, 3 TTD sessions in exotic locations, 2500+ images

     

    ** Second update,  We have posted something like 300 slideshows (sheesh, thats like 35,000 photos) at handfuls of resorts here in the Riviera Maya, all available on the del Sol Wiki.


    I hope this can serve as a “sticky” post as I’m sure this is a most excellent resource, at the time of this post, there are 50+ weddings listed here (8000+ photos) in 31 different resort / locations throughout the Riviera Maya.

    99% of the brides that use this forum will be planning their wedding using the internet as the primary resource for research.

    Sol & I wanted to provide everyone with a comprehensive list of weddings, engagement sessions & honeymooner sessions from a list of resorts in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Tulum & Cozumel.. as well as links to the resorts & links to photo session locations included 

    We started making slideshows almost 2 years ago and find that these slideshows, typically containing 70-100 of our favorites, that they are the absolute best way to showcase the wedding day as well as the venue and the details that helped the day come together.
    It is our hopes that you can follow these links to wedding locations and view REAL weddings to get a REAL idea of what the heck is going on at your desired location of choice. Each couple will use the locations differently which may help you visualize your wedding plans.


    This list took some time to develop as we have shot in so many places here in the Riviera Maya, so if we have left something or someone out, please send me a message and I’ll try to add it. We will try to add to / make a new list as we get more locations to showcase.

    Please provide comments  PM me if a link isn’t working.

            Matt thank you so much for this post! It will def help a lot of brides out. And for those of us that are not getting married in Cancun it serves to satisfy our cravings for pics! I'm sure Tammy M is going to have a ball looking at all these pics. Thank you a million times over to you and Sol for all your useful resources.

              Oh my God---- what an *AMAZING* list and resource for all of us!!!!! Since we decided to delay our wedding for another year, we're thinking of doing a site visit in order to either solidify our decision for Iberostar or to pick a different resort---- this is such a HUGE help!!!!!

              Thank you both for taking the time to do this for all of us!!!

                Hey, great idea

                Here's my video contribution to this multimedia virtual tour:

                UPDATE: I've moved all my video clips over to Vimeo where they are categorized by type, vendor and venue. Check it out. It's a great resource for making choices for your wedding.

                    Everyone, You are welcome... I figured that this would go over well. I want to see pictures of a place before I go...so, this post will hopefully educate many people :)

                    Amy, unfortunately, we have focused our efforts primarily in the Yucatan over the last few years. We are waiting on our first booking to go to PV or Western Mexico. At this point, its pretty expensive to travel and run a business... So, we don't have travel fee's for our service here in the RM because we feel it is about time that brides worldwide can start having high expectations from the "local" talent....We have requests all the time...many dates we just don't have available.... + we just charge $1500+ for travel to go. I recommend that you send Juan Carlos a message... He is a friend of ours and would be FULL of info for you :)

                    Cheers & good luck!

                      Sol & Matt,
                      Thank-you SOOO very much for this. It is amazing that you took the time for this, considering how busy you both must be. As you said, it will be great for brides yet to pick a place and great for the rest of us who have uncureable cravings to see pictures

                      BUT now I'm in trouble - I should be studying for exams, and all I want to do is watch the slides!! (no self control here )
