Destination Engagement at Villa La Joya

Destination Engagement at Villa La Joya

Kyle and Michelle were recently engaged here at Villa La Joya. Kyle had spent months preparing for this surprise engagement.

Kyle arranged for luxury transportation from that Cancun airport to Villa La Joya. The couple were greeted by the creative team of Deja Vu, who did the video you see below. The garden was set up with a romantic candle display, where Kyle invited Michelle to open her gift box, a personalized love story book. As you will see in the video, he then got down on bended knee and asked Michelle to marry him.

Kyle also made arrangements for their closest friends to come to the Riviera Maya and be a part of this special proposal. After the proposal they toasted and celebrated together on the terrace of Villa la Joya.

Congratulations on your engagement, we are looking forward to your wedding at Villa la Joya.

Destination Wedding of Irene & Isisdro

Destination Wedding of Irene & Isisdro

One year ago Irene & Isidro visited Villa la Joya and they immediately knew that Villa la Joya was the perfect place to declare their vows to each other. The couple celebrated their special moment together with their closest family and had a beautiful and emotional ceremony on the lawn followed by a casual cocktail hour and reception with a Mexican buffet on the terrace by the pool. Bride Irene surprised her new husband with a special grooms Cake inspired by his favorite team. The couple and their family danced the night away on the terrace , enjoying a beautiful evening in Villa la Joya in the Riviera Maya.

Luxury Destination Wedding of Alina and Mark

Luxury Destination Wedding of Alina and Mark

We couldn’t have asked for a better way to kickoff our 2019 weddings! Alina and Mark hit it out of the park!

Alina and her wedding party got ready at the Condo, just a few steps away from the Villa. They used the side lawn for a beautiful sunset wedding. The entire wedding then gathered on the front steps of the Villa for a group photo. When the sun went down the entertainers came out and put on some great performances, a relative even rapped to the couple. Alina and Mark and their entire party danced the night away!

Thanks to everyone that made this day so special!

Mexico Destination Wedding of Rosie & Noel

Mexico Destination Wedding of Rosie & Noel

Excited to feature this wedding from the end of last year! Rosie and Noel used the Villa La Joya condo to get ready for their wedding, allowing them to be just a short walk to their wedding site on the back lawn. They had an absolutely gorgeous day and so many sweet details. Thanks to Joyce of Dream Weddings Riviera Maya for planning an exceptional day and all the vendors that came together to create a magical day for Rosie and Noel. Best of everything as you have begun your life together as husband and wife!

Engaged Photoshoot at Villa La Joya

Engaged Photoshoot at Villa La Joya

Fun in the Sun Weddings is an adventurous photography outfit in Playa del Carmen. Marc & Gillian are able to suggest locations located throughout the area for your engagement sessions. We also love it when they and their couples choose Villa La Joya as a backdrop for these intimate photo shoots.

Ceremony Locations at Villa La Joya

Ceremony Locations at Villa La Joya

Villa La Joya is a blank canvas for your wedding! Couples have used a variety of locations for tying the knot, including the front steps of the Villa, the side grass (likely the most popular) and a couple have even used the beach. For flow the front steps probably make the most sense, as it is at the entrance and allows for your guests to experience the property as the day unfolds. The grass on the right of the pool seems to be the most popular spot by couples so far! The ocean provides an amazing backdrop to your destination wedding without having to worry about how to walk in the sand in heals! The beach has also been used by some smaller weddings with the water literally at your feet.

We still have a few 2019 dates available and quite a few 2020, so reach out to get more information!

Few examples of weddings on the front steps:

Additionally, there are a couple of churches that are not too far from the Villa.

Mexico Destination Wedding of Eileen & Trevor

Mexico Destination Wedding of Eileen & Trevor

We love having couples show their style and this was the beautiful seaside Mexico destination wedding. The property is a blank canvas and Natalia of Wedding on the Beach and floral designer Vanessa Jaimes painted a perfect picture!

Eileen wrote a sweet note,

"Villa la Joya is one of the most breath taking venues I have ever seen. Mike went above and beyond to make sure my family and I had everything taken care of. I felt like Mike treated me like family to make sure my wedding day was perfect. I could never thank him enough for all he did for me and my family on my wedding day. Everything about this location is perfect, the view of the ocean is beautiful and the grounds are spectacularly maintained."
