Mayan Riviera travel theme wedding | 100 Layer Cake

We’re so stoked to finally be moving into the warmer months of the year. And after seeing this wedding we’ve definitely got travel and tropical weather on the mind, and think it’s perfect for rounding out the week with. Located just 30 minutes outside of Cancun, Mexico, Azul Beach Resort in Puerto Morelos matched Candice + Will’s desire to be at a small retreat-style hotel that accommodated the comforts & tastes of their family and friends coming from opposite coasts. There were less than 100 rooms, on the beach, and was the perfect escape to celebrate not just one day, but an entire weekend. Dreamy, right?

With guests spending thousands of dollars to join us on a Mexican getaway, I wanted the welcome and arrival from their long journeys to kick start the excitement for what was to come. Upon arrival at check in, along with welcome drinks, guests were given glow-in-the-dark pins. Their rooms were outfitted with welcome bags that highlighted personal messages about our past, present, and future along with “survival” items – like a Spanish phrase book!

Will and I met while we were working for Scratch DJ Academy – a school that teaches people of all ages, how to DJ. We worked on opposite coasts, me in LA and him in NY. After 6 years of seeing each other sporadically, and communicating via email (business only!), on a chance visit to LA, Will decided to make a move and ask me out. After over a year of flying back and forth between LA and NY, I decided to make the move the NY. Two days after I arrived, Will proposed to me on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Since they met over their love of DJing, they spray painted gold vinyl records and created custom “record labels” using printable CD labels. Each record had a personal song dedication for that guest – so when they heard the song, they knew it was for them.

I absolutely love this wedding! I especially love how they have incorporated their love of music into their special day. The vinyl-record chargers look fantastic!!! :D

Oh my, beach weddings are the best! Those plates are a really interesting touch, it's so glamorous! I wish my wedding will be just as fabulous!

Sweet Elegance Bridal created a wedding for me that is so magical. It marked the day in my life that is so memorable and yet creative. It made my wife cried for joy and that picture will stay within me for the rest of my life. I'm not the type of person that is so passionate about things about on weddings but I was very in to it planning. Let them create something worth remembering for you too...

Hi! My fiance and I are getting married at Azul Beach Hotel on September 1st. I just saw these pics and absolutely love everything - especially the decor. My wedding colors are navy, turquoise and bright yellow so if the white lanterns, and turquoise vases/votives are still available - I would love to buy them from the bride & groom. Thank you! Please email me: taryn.b.mahoney@gmail.com

Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.|
