broadway hits the riviera maya...

It is with great excitement that we highlight our most recent fairytale wedding at the Rosewood Mayakoba! How could this not be a smashing success when our beautiful bride is a well known Broadway star? Every spectacular moment was brilliantly captured by Zasil Studio.

Friends of the bride (fellow Broadway stars) delighted the group with special performances throughout the four-day party, which included a surprise ‘pop up’ performance as the bride walked down the aisle.

Invigorating music prevailed throughout the weekend, as our fabulous couple wanted to make sure this was a party nobody would forget. So how did they do that? By flying in the band that played at Billy Joel's and Sir Paul McCartney's weddings: the talented "Soul Street" featuring Reggie Woods.

Our stunning love birds tied the knot beneath a whimsical, floral Chuppah creatively crafted by master florist Saku.

Every aspect of the weekend was exquisitely planned, from the personalized transportation down to the welcome bags that were thoughtfully furnished. No detail was missed - including monogrammed baseball caps and heel protectors for the ladies shoes!

Guests danced until the wee hours of the morning under a romantic beachfront palapa and the venue transformed to follow the bride’s, “earthy, bohemian, elegant” vision. Revelers indulged in tasty "surf & turf" and fresh veggies before hitting the dance floor. Later, warm chocolate chip cookies (the bride’s favorite) served up as a late night snack, were a real crowd pleaser.

An oceanfront farewell and bountiful brunch capped off the weekend’s activities.

Congratulations to Lauren & Lee!

Thank you for allowing Runaway Bride to be part of your special day.

from mehndi to mariachi

It is with great excitement that we share our most recent wedding (every detail brilliantly captured by Twin Lens) with you.

Lopa & Vijay allowed us to help them create a magical weekend combining the elements of two very vibrant cultures.

Guests from all over the world jetted to Mexico's alluring Yucatan peninsula, making this a truly International fête. Festivities consisted of seven events that took place over the course of three days at the stunning Rosewood Mayakoba.

The revelry kicked off with a Mexican “fiesta” on Thursday night, with guests enjoying everything from a live trio, to creating their own margaritas, to custom henna artwork by a Manhattan-based artist who was flown in for the event.

The weekend's festivities continued with a Puja (spiritual cleansing ceremony), which took place on a secluded palapa surrounded by mangroves, followed by a lively pool party where guests savored fresh ceviche and participated in "old school" pool games.

Guests topped off their day with an evening celebration on the beach, consisting of traditional Indian dances (Garba and Raas). Colorful garb, lively music, tasty cuisine from different regions of Mexico and a lot of dancing filled the night.

The next morning, our regal couple exchanged vows by the lagoon, beneath an airy Mandap made entirely of flowers. The groom made his grand entrance by boat, while friends and family waited for him dockside and "danced" with him as he made his way to the Mandap.

Later, everyone enjoyed a Chinese-Mexican fusion post- wedding lunch, which further underscored the ethnic flavor of the weekend.

An elegant poolside reception that evening capped off the events, allowing everyone to feast on Mediterranean cuisine, culminating in a "truffle tower" wedding cake, designed by the bride.

Dancing went on until the wee hours of the morning with a sea lit by a full moon serving as a fitting backdrop.

Congratulations Lopa & Vijay and thank you for allowing Runaway Bride to be part of your special day!
