Destination Wedding of Jessica & Shae

Destination Wedding of Jessica & Shae

Jessica and Shae meet on a beach, so it goes with saying that they had to get married on one and we are so happy that they did! Shae is certainly a romantic, just read their engagement story on Fun in the Sun Weddings blog, who provided the beautiful images from this wedding. Natalia and her team were amazing with planning and coordinating the ocean-side destination wedding.

We thank Jessica and Shae for the opportunity to showcase their love to their family and friends at Villa La Joya. We look forward to hearing about your future adventures.

Destination Wedding of Stevie Rose & Tayvon

Destination Wedding of Stevie Rose & Tayvon

We love to see images from wedding on the property and Dani at Sweet Caribbean Photo did an amazing job shooting Stevie Rose and Tayvon's wedding. The wedding showcases how you can have your nuptials, cocktail hour and dinner all on the back patio! This was an intimate affair, but long on details - Natatlia at Weddings on the Beach did a terrific job!  We especially love the long family style table setting that looks like it just drifts off into the ocean from one end. The guests were treated to dinner by Tomas Soberanis of Gourmet Soberanis.

Congrats to Stevie Rose and Tayvon! We look forward to having you back!

We’ve discovered a treasure right here in Playa del Carmen!! Villa La Joya is a beautiful private villa that sits just feet away from the beach and is available for your very special events. We were invited to tell a wedding story there last February and it was incredible. The property is absolutely stunning and as far as photography goes, it is a dream come true.

The wedding ceremony was held on the front steps with room for more than 100 guests, 10 bridesmaids, and 14 groomsmen! After the ceremony was complete, the guests moved to the back of the villa that overlooks the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. We were granted permission to take photos anywhere we preferred, and with so many different backdrops, the photos came out incredible. Between the green lush plants, the impressive architecture, and the natural light that was falling on the ceremony at just about dusk, it was perfect.

We loved working with the staff and had the chance to meet, Mike, the owner of Villa La Joya, and were treated with nothing but respect, kindness and pure hospitality. Quetzal Wedding Photo would love to recommend Villa la Joya to any couples looking for something a little bit different than an all-inclusive hotel for their wedding venue.

There are some other benefits to getting married at Villa La Joya. There is no Vendor Fee for any outside Vendor, which means you can contract all of your favorite vendors without worrying about additional fees. The property is private, so you won’t have many tourists stopping to watch your ceremony. The beach is less populated for your portrait session. And you can turn up the volume for your reception without worrying about upsetting the hotel guests! Check out Villa La Joya and check out Quetzal Wedding Photo’s coverage of Katie Wallace and David del Rio’s Celebrity Wedding to see just how amazing this secret treasure truly is!

David Del Rio & Katie Wallace Destination Wedding

David Del Rio & Katie Wallace Destination Wedding

David and Katie invited friends and family to the Riviera Mexico to exchange vows and start their lives together as a married couple. Their story is one of fairy tales, starting 8 years ago when Katie went with her family to see a Broadway show called In The Heights. After the curtain dropped, Katie’s father insisted go backstage to get the autograph of “that guy” who played Sonny. Katie and David met again face-to-face on the other side of the country and began dating instantly. Click this link to see the story that Inside Edition ran on the couple after David proposed to Katie in the very spot outside the first theater than they had originally met.

We love how the couple used the property for everything from their ceremony, with an amazing floral display, on the front steps,  to the incredible reception on our back patio which included a fireworks display! 

Congratulations Katie and David!

Mexico Destination Wedding of Jessica and Kelly

Mexico Destination Wedding of Jessica and Kelly

We are super excited to showcase this gorgeous wedding from November! It was an honor to host the event and get to know Jessica and Kelly. We couldn't ask for a better couple and review, thanks!

"Where do I begin?! You know when you’re a little girl and dream up this beautiful fantasy of a wedding?! Well I had that wedding and it wasn't a dream! Villa La Joya exceed our expectations. The very first time I spoke with Mike, I knew he was going to be an absolute pleasure to work with! Including his team, they are incredible! Seriously the nicest people you will ever work with. Any question we had they answered (usually within the hour), any request we had, Mike or his team would take care of it. The entire process was seamless and full of positive vibes! We did not expect this and for good reason, this is Mike’s personal home! We count our lucky stars for having found such a gracious man to work with while planning the most important day of our lives. Villa La Joya is stunning. We knew how gorgeous it looked during the day, but it physically got more beautiful as the night approached. It gave us that beach wedding we wanted, but without all the sand! Hearing the waves crashing during the speeches and dinner, is a feeling I can’t explain. I hope to never forget that sound or moment. Our family and friends were blown away by our venue choice and we heard countless times “This is the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to”. We HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend choosing Villa La Joya for your wedding! You won’t regret it! Promise! Thank you for everything Mike and team! "Jessica, November 2017
