    Hi!

    I just joined the site today and figured I would introduce myself. My name is Melissa and im planning on getting married in Playa del Carmen on November 2, 2012. I got engaged while vacationing in Playa in October and had a chance to meet with Gelena (www.weddingsrivieramaya.com). I just recently hired Gelena and the next step is finding a location! While I was there, I was able to see Mahekal resort and Grand Coral Beach club and liked both. I liked the beach club a little bit more because it felt more private and intimate as opposed to the public beach of Mahekal. Does anyone have any venue suggestions that isnt a big resort?

     

    Also, any suggestions for a place to do rehearsal dinner and photographer would be greatly appreciated!

          Congratulations and welcome to the forums! If you are considering a small boutique style resort that is small and intimate outside of Playa del Carmen... I would also suggest looking into Ceiba del Mar! It is a fantastic little resort and you will feel like you own it all. So picturesque and a fantastic spot for a wedding.

           

          Here is a link to a recent wedding I shot there: Ceiba.jpg
