Kathy & Bruce | Barcelo Riviera Maya Wedding | Puerto Aventuras

An Intimate Wedding at the Barcelo Riviera Maya

A gorgeous and sultry afternoon at the Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe, the premium area at the Barcelo Riviera Maya, was the backdrop for Kathy and Bruce’s intimate beach wedding.  The ceremony was held at the ocean front gazebo in the premium level area, outside the Palace Deluxe lobby. We loved documenting this sweet and sincere couple’s vows against the backdrop of turquoise sea and white sand.

After the ceremony we all relaxed into some gorgeous portraits with Kathy and Bruce’s best friends and family in tow.  I just love the late afternoon light on the beach, and this beach hotel offers so many lovely locations and mature palm trees to make a perfect tropical backdrop.  Kathy and Bruce were lucky to have the perfect afternoon for a portrait session, with not a drop of rain in sight!

After the portrait session we all headed to the Coral Grill restaurant for a laid-back reception.  Guests were seated along a long table decorated in a natural, rustic style. We love how the long table brought everyone together like one big family, while still leaving plenty of room for the kids (and adults) to dance and play.

The Barcelo Maya resort is one of our favorite all inclusive resorts in the Riviera Maya.  Located in Puerto Aventuras between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, this luxury resort is packed with fun places to hang out, from swimming pools, to a great fitness center, a water park for the kids, and of course, tons of space on the beach. Wedding planning at the resort is expertly handled by Barceló hotel group, and in the 10+ years we’ve been documenting weddings there, we have NEVER seen them mess up a wedding!
