I was married at Azul Fives on August 4 of this year. We had about 50 guests and everything was perfect!
Wedding Coordinators: The crew was fantastic! Arturo was our onsite coordinator and Andres and Odette were our planners from Lomas Travel. The meeting with the wedding coordinator and crew before the wedding was very organized. On the day of the wedding, Andres and Arturo were awesome: they constantly updated me on what was going on and on what was about to happen.
Ceremony: On the day of the wedding, it rained a couple of times in the morning and afternoon so it seemed like we wouldnâ€™t be able to have a beach ceremony. The hotel has a backup location for ceremonies in case it rains, but fortunately, the sky cleared up in time for our ceremony and we were able to have it on the beach after all. For our photographer, we chose Caribe Photo. The pictures of our ceremony and with our guests (after the ceremony) were beautiful!
Cocktail Hour: Our cocktail hour was in the garden and for hors dâ€™oeuvres we ordered the Mexican Fiesta Cocktail, breaded shrimp tacos, and mahi mahi tacos. Since my hubby and I were taking pictures during most of the cocktail hour, I was able to try only the breaded shrimp and mahi mahi tacos, both of which were delicious! Our guests enjoyed the mariachi band and raved about the mahi mahi tacos!
Reception: We decided to have our reception inside the banquet hall, since it was air-conditioned. I bought vases and flowers from downtown Playa del Carmen and the wedding coordinators gladly set them up. Since we assigned seating, we also brought our own table name placards and stands, which the team set up as well.
Food: We ordered the Family Style Dinner. For the most part, everything that I tried was very goodâ€¦especially the fruit tartlet and chocolate cake for dessert! There was so much food and they came in such big portions that we (including our guests) werenâ€™t even able to try all of the main courses. Our guests said that the food was really good as well.
Cake: We ordered the white cake and it was very moist and delicious!
Photo Booth: The photo booth through Lomas isnâ€™t a booth, but itâ€™s actually a backdrop so that we were able to fit a bunch of people in each picture. There were a lot of fun props and a good variety, which made for some funny pictures. The staff was very friendly so we highly recommend them!
DJ/MC: We went with the DJ thatâ€™s available through Lomas. We provided so many songs that I donâ€™t think they had enough time to play them all, but the mixing was good.
