Cancun Destination Wedding at Xcaret, Riviera Maya

Bride and Groom: Venus + Jaime

Wedding Date: April 2011

Resort: Grand Velas Luxury Resorts @Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Wedding Ceremony: St. Francis of Assisi Chapel, Xcaret

Wedding Reception: Xcaret Park – Riviera Maya and Cancun’s top resort

Wedding coordinator: Ana Cruz of Ana Cruz Events, Florida

Xcaret coordinator: Cristel Romero

This was an event that Marc and I will always remember. The bride and groom are so kind to say the least, and their wedding was just beyond belief. After getting married at the chapel, there is short walk going to the cocktails area by the breakwaters. Jaime had a surprise for his bride. Upon queue, the fireworks launched. The newlyweds led the way to the reception area – the path was spiral architecture leading to the cave which has underground rivers which is part of a large cave system that forms deep under the surface of the Yucatan peninsula . On a normal day there are people snorkeling around the underground river. On the wedding day, it was transformed to an enchanting place. Floating candles and lighting accented the waters that surround the cave. (Please click on the thumbnails to enjoy the photos)

I would like to commend the other vendors as well who made Venus & Jaime’s wedding an unbelievable one  – (makeup artist, lighting guys, dj, dancers, videographer, musicians, florist, etc. )  but I don’t have their contact info as of now. I’ll update this post once I get their contacts.
