Mediterranean Sea Meets the Caribbean Sea
The wedding weekend took place at a boutique oasis set on renowned Maroma Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Away from all the large all-inclusive resorts and only about 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport, sits a boutique property where the South of the Border vibe still exists and is simply calm, quiet, and authentically Mexico. It is unique with an authentic Mexican identity highlighting local artisans, from the maracas in the bar to the hand-painted tiled floors in the bathrooms. This made for a perfect setting to blend the aesthetics of the Mediterranean Sea, where the proposal took place a year before, to the beauty of the Caribbean Sea. With great thought to create the most intimate and memorable moments, Idyll Stories married the wild nature of Belmond Maroma’s jungle to its Caribbean surrounding by creating a wild secret garden environment right on the beach from the ceremony and cocktail hour to the reception. The entire wedding weekend was designed to be organic and soft while embracing the beach side beauty — a combination that so fittingly represented the style of the couple. Belmond Maroma’s luscious grounds and beautiful sunsets make it the perfect place for a relaxing, intimate wedding weekend.
