While we shelter in place, we dream. Of getting back to traveling with our clients, and for ourselves too. In the meantime, we love looking back at all of our travel from the last few years. Last June, we were at Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya with Kesh Events, Inc., Canteiro Weddings, Collin Pierson Photography, and Smitten Boutique with gorgeous jewel-toned blooms and fabulous bridal looks right off the Valentini Spose and GALI KARTEN runways (thank you Dimitra’s Bridal Chicago and Maria Elena Headpieces!). Today all that gorgeous inspo is featured on Inside Weddings!! And we could not be happier for our vendor friends who worked so hard with us to bring this to life. See you soon, our friends in Mexico! We can’t wait.

When planning the details of this styled oceanside wedding at Andaz Mayakoba photographed by Collin Pierson Photography, Michelle Durpetti of Michelle Durpetti Events and the Kesh Events team knew they wanted to showcase something a little different. Rather than sticking to a traditional and soft color palette as is common with seaside soirées, they decided to embrace deeper jewel tones to further complement the chic and romantic look that they were aiming for when developing the décor.
To further accentuate the overall aesthetic, the overall design scheme showcased a beach-friendly ambience accessorized with cool details that were shown in the bride’s lush and luxurious bouquet, the ceremony arch, and in other elements throughout the space. Bold and romantic florals by Canteiro Weddings enriched the décor and further accented the gorgeous view of the ocean right behind. Varying hues of deep berry, purples, and pinks were mixed in with hints of soft brown and white to create a truly captivating space for the couple and guests to enjoy throughout the celebration. Other elements that enriched the desired look included slices of rose quartz with each guest’s name in calligraphy were used as place cards and gorgeously paired with jewel-toned glassware and napkins, as well as stationery by Smitten Boutique.
Matching the versatility of the colors and details of the styled wedding shot, both the bride and groom had outfit changes intended to wow guests. “I loved the groom’s look with the rose jacket and his outfit change of emerald green!” shares Michelle. “The bride’s first look gave me lots of mermaid vibes, and her second look was right off the Valentini runway and included pants.” Providing perfect contrast, both bride and groom radiated and matched the look of the styled celebration. Take a look at the slideshow above to see the execution of unique and non-traditional designs used to celebrate this gorgeous couple in Mexico! See the feature on Inside Weddings, click here.
