The Mini’s Wedding Profile
Jessica Snyder / BDW member: Jszy10
Aventura Spa Palace, Riviera Maya, Mexico
Why did you choose to have a destination wedding?
My husband and I knew before we were even engaged that we would want a destination wedding. Neither of us were interested in the idea of having 100+ people watching us get married and loved the idea of going somewhere gorgeous with our closest family and friends. Some of our guests had never left the country, so we knew it would just as special for them as it was for us.
Why did you choose your location?
I chose Riviera Maya based on its affordability and beauty, and chose our resort specifically because of the perks it offered us for our wedding and our guests for their stay.
What were your wedding colors and/or theme?
We chose a Tangerine orange and Glacier (Tiffany) blue for our colors based
mostly on the fact that we both love tiger lilies (our orange inspiration) and the glaicer blue really matched with the tropical feel of the location.
Every wedding is special in its own right. What made your wedding unique?
Just having the opportunity to spend 10 days in paradise celebrating with our closest family and friends was more than either of us could have ever asked for. We had the most supportive parents and bridal party that helped us really make our wedding personal.
One of the major challenges of putting together a destination wedding is finding and working with your ideal vendors from afar. What wedding vendors did you use to put together this spectacular wedding?
Photographer -- Octavio Montes
Videographer -- Smile Market
Florist -- The alter display was designed by the florist at ASP and all bouquets were made by mother and myself
Wedding Coordinator -- Wilma (ASP)
Wedding Dress -- Maggie Sottero (Leoni)
Invitations -- I used a template from Alyee Bits to create my own Passport Invitations
