to say that I am very grateful about this 2011.
It was an amazing year full of personal and professional
chalenges, that just made me become a stronger believer

and they have no idea how much, thank you!

so grateful to be part of this amazing group of talented, loving
and passionate human beings that enlighten my hours with
theirs posts, tweets and comments, you guys ROCK MY WORLD!!!
Last but not least (actually he always comes first)
I am thankful to GOD for the great family

Alira & Nicolas were our last couple to get married on 2011. They chose the amazing Yazmin de la Mora to cater their event and their wedding was coordinated by Weddings Playa Mexico.
On a very fresh december the 17th saturday, these two love birds from Puebla, Mexico, gathered all their friends and family in a true celebration of love at Capilla de Santa Maria del Secreto.
The love story behind this couple of Doctors is very peculiar. They know each other since high school but at those times they where not even friends. They both studied to become Doctors but Nico´s passion for business made him take some decisions away from his original profession and decided to pursue a dream with his brother and had a Restaurant. Globalization didn't help the brothers and they had to close their business, this is how Nicolas entered Medical school again and ran into Alira at the Hall of the University.
It only took a few words and then they where dating. The time went by they became Doctors, they went to Spain and went they came back to Mexico they had a great opportunity to work in Playa del carmen.
This is how our couple ended up on this part of the country and this is why they choose Riviera maya to be the witness of their union.
Alira writing down and leaving the 1st wish for our 2012 first bride
at our very famous WISHING TREE at the venue.
This wedding had going on several details such as their wedding invitations designed by Alira, which included
"airplane tickets" for their guests coming from other cities.
The Menu was excellent they started with a fish ceviche, then a great mushroom soup and finally an amazing fish filet with a side dish of steamed vegetables and
mash potatoes with a hint of curry. And they had a dessert and fruit bar to indulge everyones sweet tooth.
Party kept on going at the amazing VENUE of Secret Jewel Celebrations where not even the rain could ruin their celebration.
We thank Alira and Nicolas for letting us be part of their love story and also for being so kind and loving.
Alira told me she was so inspired by my BLOG that was the reason she made one for their wedding http://aliraynikolas.blogspot.com/p/nuestra-boda.html
I am very honored and very thnak full, I am so happy we closed this years weddings with a cherry on TOP.

As a destination Wedding Expert in the Cancun and Riviera Maya area
I do need to know everything about the greatest locations and venues that
are not at your typical RESORT, and this is how
I came to Zama Beach Club in Isla Mujeres.
I have been here before at Weddings coordinated by Juliette Franze
my dear friend from Switzerland that owns Papillon Weddings and
coordinates them mainly on the Island.
But this site inspection was truly a
very good idea for a regular wednesday afternoon.
A dear friend of my invited me on a one day adventure,
at this fisherman´s island, I tagged alone
so I decided to set us up for a
site inspection and have a menu tasting at this
great place that has spectacular sunsets.
ZAMA means in maya "amanecer"
wich is in english SUNRISE.
You can arrive on your private Yatch or
just take a regular boat to the island
and just drive to the beach club.
For a very special wedding on a very quiet and
romantic island, I hope you could all experience
the magic and the exquisite flavors of its cuisine.
Special thanks to Jonas Rodriguez
that pampered us at the site inspection VIP style
and that has great plans for Zama on 2012.
You can find more information about this great place
Thinking about an island wedding
then come to ISLA MUJERES

This is a very special post for me
because I will share a personal inner thought.
A basic principle in my life.
Always surrounded by weddings and events ...
I can't help it, and they have become part of my every day reflections.
This is how I came up with one of my favorite phrases: I DO
Thinking positive has always being my "thing" and people that have had the opportunity to share with me some quality time know that I am committed and will fully devote my self to every single project I have.
This is How I understood the power of I DO. This is a very powerful word that means you will make it happen, this word speaks not only from your heart but it is sealing a deal in which you have accepted to take part of something bigger than just your self.
I am referring not only as your I DO's when you
get married but as a general I DO for life.
As good as saying THANK YOU meaning it from your heart is important from the moment we wake up till the moment our day has ended, saying I DO is a very energetic thought that will allow you to accomplish deadlines and to work as a team mate just because you have giving it the correct meaning.
I DO is a commitment not to try but to deliver,
if I can DO it you CAN definitely DO it too!
This is just how I take the simple things in my day to day life
and give them an important meaning;
there for every time I'm hosting a wedding
I always remember why I choose to be positive and
committed with my heart, mind and soul to every project I have said to:
ps. choose wisely we can't say YES to everyone and everything
this is one of my basic principles too, but that will be discussed at another POST!

A wedding is a ONCE in a lifetime event that units people.
It brings together families, kind of like thanksgiving or christmas ... your wedding day is the celebration of a LOVE so powerful it creates a new family.
Oh, YEs family, we can't imagine our life without them, but what can you DO when you just want to relax and enjoy, and oh well sometimes just thinking about getting everyone together is a very stressful job?
I can only say, people that LOVE you will make everything that is in their hands so you can have the most wonderful day in your lives. You and your groom have nothing to worry about.
Find some common ground where you can make everyone feel like they are participating and really have it all your way.
The most amazing thing about a family reunion is all the fun we have when everyone is celebrating, just remember how much fun your holidays are and you will see that there is nothing to worry about, you know them better than anybody ... you have known them your whole life.
Just a little thought about family because
HOLIDAY SEASON IS VERY NEAR AND
WE JUST GOT OUR CHRISTMAS TREE ...
... feel lucky because you have your love ones celebrating with you! and what ever you can't handle leave it to your team, after all your girls, bridesmaids and wedding planner have all a purpose in common at your wedding:
Welcome to the land of wonders, welcome to the place where magic is possible.
YES WE HAVE THE ONLY CATHOLIC HCAPEL
by the sea in the RIVIERA MAYA.
OUR LADY HOLY MARY OF THE SECRET
Pleas enjoy our latest wedding
where Andrea and Jason share their
love at the place where GODs presence
can be felt with all our senses.
