Isabelle and Andy

Isabelle and Andy´s wedding was exhilarating! 90 guests, three events, and lots of music and laughter! Isabelle tells me her friends still say – “Best. Wedding. Ever.”

New wedding band in Tulum

There´s a brand-new wedding band in Tulum, and it sounds great!  Musicians were hand-picked from among Tulum´s many musical groups, and they´re playing everyone´s favorite wedding songs – modern hits, funky dance classics, disco hits, and songs by request.  Let Tulum Weddings and Events know if you are looking for a great live cover band for your reception.

Busy season!

I´m looking forward to the next few months! We have some new clients and some who I´ve been working with for almost a year now, can´t wait to see these plans come to fruition.
I decided to scout out some new places to hold weddings. Lots of people are looking to have a smaller wedding, with 10 to 30 guests, with a party, which is tough to do at Playa Azul – especially now that the hotel is expanding and adding 5 new rooms! Here´s a small-world story: A couple came into Ginger, our restaurant in Tulum town. While chatting with them, they mentioned that they have a house at Tankah Bay that would be great for weddings. (More small world – the wife is the sister of the boss of a friend of mine!!) I went out to see the house, and it really is beautiful, a terrific spot for a beautiful intimate wedding – and party. I met with their property managers, who are really nice, and they ended up recommending me to a couple getting married there in November! Tulum is truly insular – in a good way. Anyway, it will be a terrific party, with the Bohemios playing salsa, a well-stocked bar, and a seafood grill.
Brian and Andrea´s wedding was last week, and it was simple but beautiful. Hernan had them out there for hours taking pictures, and I´ve seen some previews – they´re gorgeous! It was a civil ceremony, and the Ocampo letter that they read is really beautiful – I´ll post is here soon.
And Maggie and Ben are coming up soon! Everything is all coming together and they´ll be the first to try out the new terrace addition to the first floor of the restaurant at Playa Azul. Looking forward to this one as well.
I´m still booking weddings for April and May, although I´ll have to hire someone to assist me, since little Baby Ornelas Levi will be arriving at the end of April! :)

Back on the wedding blog

Hello out there!  Tulum Weddings and Events has been truly busy lately, as more and more people look to Tulum and Playa Azul Hotel in particular for their destination wedding site!  My own wedding was in May, and it was a blast – 300 guests from all over the world, terrific food, our own “concert” at the end, a beautiful Mayan ceremony with Charlie, and – well, you can see the photos and video on the website!  Special kudos go to Manuel Cappellari, who really surprised us with a music-video-quality wedding video.  It rocks!  :)   We’re looking forward to expanding our list of hotels and beach houses, so that we can accommodate any-sized wedding party.  Check back here soon for updates and ideas!
