Well we did it! After all the fun fun that comes with planning a wedding in another country, wrangling 70 guests from multiple continents, and then during the longest wet season in Mexico for years, praying it doesn’t rain on the wedding day, WE DID IT!
We chose the Riviera Maya region of Mexico for the wedding as we have spent a great deal of time travelling the region and it has become a very special place for us. We hosted the wedding at the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal and the resort and all its staff were INCREDIBLE! Our wedding planner Eugenia Palacios made the entire process stress free even when we felt things were moving on “mexican” time. It was a perfect day for a white wedding and Carly and I couldn’t have been happier. We asked all our guests to wear shades of white as a part of Mayan wedding traditions and it made for a beautiful bunch of people if we do say so ourselves!
A huge thank you to our travel agent Jane Ricks from Laking & Rhoades Travel in Barrie Ontario, Canada for taking this on and making our lives leading up to the event stress free.
