In Preparation: Decor, Details, and Candy Table!

As the big day arrived, the Grand Velas Riviera Maya staff —led by our incredible wedding planners and accompanied by our luxury wedding suppliers— were in charge of creating a dream setting and taking care of every little detail so that everything looked spectacular.

Classic white wedding decor


All of the decorations worked to create a classic white wedding theme with touches of gold, green, and gray, giving an elegant, yet modern and very stylish, color palette.

A traditional guest book was swapped for an original "audio guest book" in which, with the help of a vintage telephone, the guests recorded sweet messages and sent good wishes to the couple.

The candy table was as classy as it was delicious and featured the bride and groom's favorite cupcakes, cookies, donuts, and lollipops.

For his part, Alexander got to have a moment of relaxation with his best men, the men in his life who've always been there for him and accompanied him on this special day to witness the beginning of a new chapter with Jacqueline.

Prayer Between the Bride and Groom

The bride and groom decided not to have a private "first look" and to instead wait to meet each other face-to-face at the ceremony. However, they wanted to do something else, where they could be alone in a quiet space moments before the event, without seeing each other, but while still feeling each other's warmth.

Separated by a wall, Jacqueline and Alexander held hands and made a prayer for their love. A very emotional and intimate moment that only the two of them experienced.

The time has come for the couple to walk down the aisle and say "I do", while surrounded by the people they love the most. Jacqueline and Alexander's beautiful ceremony took place on the Grand Class Wedding Deck, against the backdrop of the stunning Caribbean Sea.
