These were the colors chosen by Maru & Roberto for their
FRIDAY february 24, 2012 wedding.
They had a lot of problems in their home town to get their papers in time for their catholic wedding, but that did not stop them as they gladly entered our CAPILLA DE SANTA MARIA DEL SECRETO and had their civil ceremony after the Catholic mass.
Friends and familly al travelled from Monterrey,
Mexico to witness their LOVE union.
They danced all night with the Cuban Band they had for their party.

WISHING TREE EXPERIENCE
It was a very intimate wedding with 40 guests
but they had the time of their lives choosing
a unique VENUE that could really give them the privacy and
exclusivity they where looking for their Beach wedding.
Lighted dance floor, lighted tables and light center pieces
gave a very romantic atmosphere as bride and groom
danced the night away ending the party at 330am.
Luckyly they had a bus waiting for them at the entrance and took
everybody back to Playa del Carmen to their
Hotel where they rested to get ready for their

Today is February the 2nd and in Mexico we celebrate the DIA DE LA CANDELARIA.
"LA CANDELARIA" Is a Virgin just like Virgin Mary. And this tradition follows the ROSCA DE REYES on January the 6th tradition of cutting the bread and who ever gets in their slice a "hidden" baby jesus must buy TAMALES
|then wrapped in corn husks and steamed)|
and invite their friends over on the 2nd of february.
So today is our day for TAMALES and ATOLE.
According to Mama Latina tamales are one of Mexico's favorite dishes. You can find them all year long almost everywhere. Most people know about savory tamales, but there are also sweet tamales. The tradition is to have your Tamal with a hot beverage called Atole. It's sweet and corn based very delicious and we have different flavors to chocolate, vanilla, strawberry or plain.
But how is this culinary tradition even important for my DESTINATION WEDDING?Well this is where the story gets its twist. You know how we are always looking for ways to incorporate traditions of the place where our Wedding will take place, so that our guests and family can have the complete DESTINATION experience?
Well we are adding bite size "Tamales" to your Hors d'oeuvre (literally "apart
from the main work or translated into the food items served before the first course), and serve them at the beach on your cocktail party after your ceremony.This is an amazing way to add the mexican flavor, TAMALES can be a VEGETARIANoption also and they are full of flavor.You can fill them with beef, pork, chicken or cheese; and if you want to try them sweet you can fill them with almost any fruity flavor, they are the best.
There is no reason not to get GOURMET on your "Tamales"you can add a little culinary twist by filling them with duck,roasted turkey or even a signature dish by Bride & Groom.
What ever you do don't stop surprising your guests and familly INCORPORATE MEXICAN TRADITIONS TO YOUR WEDDING its a fun way to say I DO and VIVA MEXICO!!!
