Just Joined! Looking for suggestions

Recommended Posts

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!

Hey Melig015!

 

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on your recent engagement!! I have a fabulous a fabulous photographer and boutique hotel to recommend to you! I was married in Riviera Maya and recently just had my trash the dress session with http://www.delsolphotography.com (who also did my wedding). I could not recommend anyone higher! Their work is complete art...truly breathtaking. I've included some photos below :) 

 

We stayed at Le Reve Hotel & Spa and it was FABULOUS! It's a boutique hotel (25 rooms) and it feel like your hundreds of miles into the jungle with every amenity you could possibly need (even though it's only about 15 minutes out of Playa del Carmen! Del Sol and Le Reve are actually running a great promotion so you could definitely take advantage of that! I'll include some helpful links below :) Congratulations, happy planning and feel free to reach out with any questions! Feel free to join my Facebook Page for more amazing photos & travel stories :)

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: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150201585839487.324784.18683524486&type=1

 

Please let me know if you have any questions. Best of luck with all your plans!
