We finished an incredible year of firsts with some of the most amazing weddings. Matt and Ann’s destination wedding in Riviera Maya was our event planning and design team’s first ever-Mexican wedding and it exceeded our wildest expectations!

One of the best aspects of planning and designing in Mexico is the back drop of clear blue skies, crystal blue water and clean white sand. The Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa was home to our 60 wedding guests and was an amazing venue for this special Tuesday evening wedding!

We used bright tropical flowers and bright linens in our wedding day design elements to accentuate the natural beauty of Maroma Beach and the wedding venue. The epic weekend of celebrations kicked off with a gorgeous rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The wedding day celebrations began with an open-air wedding ceremony in a beautiful chapel and were followed by dinner, dancing, fire dancers, sea turtles and a dip in the ocean with the B & G. Alison Conklin Photography captured every aspect perfectly. Enjoy!

After a momentous few weeks for the Uncommon Events’ team, I am packing my bags and trading in crisp air and pumpkin spice for white sand and sun. I’m super excited to venture across the border to coordinate and design an epic destination wedding celebration in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

The best part about planning a wedding in Mexico is that we get to start with a slate of clear blue skies, crystal clear water and clean white sand! Our wedding guests will be staying and celebrating in the all inclusive and beautiful Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa. The 60 person wedding ceremony and reception will take place along Maroma Beach, which is directly on site and it is gorgeous. Design elements for the ceremony will include market lighting, tropical flowers and colors, and fire dancers!

I can’t wait to share the images with you. In the meantime, check out some of our favorite images from our most recent beachside event!

Hola, from sunny, warm, beachy Mexico!

We are so excited to plan our first ever wedding in beautiful Mexico and I am spending the next few days planning, devising, and outlining all of the BIG aspects of this destination wedding.

The Mexican landscape, flora, and architecture are incredibly inspiring and full of color and texture! Riviera Maya is the perfect palate for our event design team to create a wedding masterpiece. Hey, did I mention the weather?!

I love the bright colors and patterns used for this Mexican inspired wedding. It was refreshing to see the use of bold patterns & colors. Also the cookies used for the favors were an incredible, artistic touch that was outside of the box!
