I am SO excited about this blog! Throughout Mark and Jessica’s 4 day destination wedding at the phenomenal Rosewood Mayakoba in Playa Del Carmen, Nira and I made ourselves take the time to document the production process to show the behind the scenes of what it took to pull together a multiple day event that was 5 months in planning. There was magic fairy dust sprinkled over the entire weekend it came together so smoothly! A gigantic shout out to the staff of the Rosewood Mayakoba for working so hard and being so awesome. We can’t say enough great things about the staff there.

Note: these are just the production photos. We’re saving the pretty stuff from the official photographer, Elizabeth Medina–they’re going to be gorgeous!
