Vivian & James’ Mayan Riviera wedding – Moon Palace
Mayan Riviera wedding – Moon Palace
Usually destination weddings have a smallish list of guests…somewhere under 40 is typical. Vivian & James however filled an entire ballroom with at least 65 people. Everyone was wonderful and got along well which is very important when you are all staying in the same all-inclusive resort for the entire stay.
When you do a destination wedding the best part is getting to know all the guests and family. We found out Vivian’s family is from Cuba, they must have great dance lessons there because it was really fun to see them on the dance floor! On top of that it turned out that Vivian and her brothers went to the same high school as my husband. The world just keeps getting smaller!
A few images for your viewing pleasure….

The wedding carriage arriving at the “chapel”
The chapel was a little on the toasty side, both Vivian & James needed to catch a little breeze to cool off.
who can resist running through a flock of seabirds?
with the heat & humidity, it was a treat to have the dancing moved indoors.. conga!
so the next morning as we were checking out, I caught a quick shot of the newlyweds heading to the pool… a little weary, but very happy! Congrats you two!
