A colorful Tulum pueblo oasis wedding
Sarah & Eric are well traveled couple that love, love, love the culture of Mexico. I’ll never forget Sarah telling me she didn’t want to touch sand the day of her wedding. So, how do you please a bride that wants to marry in a location with the whitest, softest sand that you ever have walked on, but not walk on? Well, that’s where this venue checked the box.
ALL THE DETAILS:
Everything about their wedding was culture, color and MEXICO! From Mariachi´s with bright decor and buckets of beer, Palomas chips and guacamole at their Welcome Party to terra cotta clay pots, huge candles with wax dripping on tall rustic candelabras during the ceremony. You would have thought you were in San Miquel Allende, which is where they honeymooned!
Their photographer took them offsite into the town to capture the color and essence of Tulum pueblo while their guests were served up cocktails and ceviche. When they returned they all meandered over to a family style dinner capped off with Tres Leches cake & Mexican wedding cookies. Dancing and dip in the pool followed. Yes, you read that right. Almost everyone jumped in!
This stunning venue was the perfect location for this couple, who didn’t want to have their ceremony in the sand.

The ceremony was sweet and a bit emotional. Against the stunning straw roof and pampas grass accents, the view was incredible. BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH
After the ceremony, Sarah & Eric headed into town for photos while their guests enjoyed cocktails. Dinner was served and then the celebration began. It was a night filled with dancing, and, surprisingly, swimming! Almost all of the guests ended up in the pool by the end of the night.
THE FLOWERS & DECOR:
This couple chose colorful florals and decor. It truly reflected the Mexican culture they love so much. Creamy orange runners made for a rich tablescape accented by cactus table numbers, dainty floral vases and a pampas centerpiece. They chose a simple naked cake topped with fresh flowers, and a dessert table filled with delightful goodies. The bride’s bouquet was a stunning mix of rich colors and textures.
THE FOOD & DRINKS:
The couple selected a cocktail menu, which included fresh coconut cocktails. They also planned an after-dinner snack for the reception: churros!
