It’s always a good day when I get to feature a destination wedding shot by FineArt Studio Photography. As soon as I see their name in my inbox, I just know I’m in for a treat. Farina and Daniel’s Mayan Ceremony in Tulum, is no exception.
On their 10 year anniversary, Farina and Daniel rounded up 65 of their closest family and friends for what would be a beautiful and unique celebration at the intimate Casa Violeta in Tulum. Farina’s inspiration for the décor was the red roses used abundantly in Dolce and Gabana’s Fall & Spring collections. She wanted to replicate that vibe throughout the night, so she enlisted the help of Barbara from Destinations Weddings Tulum, who I have to say, knocked it out of the ballpark! The combination of red roses and warm candlelight weaved throughout this wedding was absolutely breathtaking! Enjoy!
Real Destination Wedding Advice from the Bride
Why did you choose to have a Mayan Ceremony in Tulum?
Dan proposed in Tulum and we absolutely LOVE Mexico and cook a lot of Yucatan flavors at home, so it just felt like the perfect place. We loved how off the grid it was, we wanted a place that people could unplug and really enjoy the moment.
Did you have a wedding theme?
We didn’t really have a theme. We just wanted to focus on the gorgeous location but we did keep pops of red roses throughout the process (invites, flowers, my hair etc).
Was there any tradition that you skipped for your destination wedding?
We did not have a bridal party, just my 2 flower girls (my cousins).
What was your favorite wedding detail and why?
Dan’s suit and Carlos (the Shaman) who married us and overflowing mezcal!!!
What was your favorite part of having a destination wedding?
Having all of your favorite people in your favorite place 🙂
