Mexico Jungle Wedding Viva Photography Weddings Flower Arrangement Pampas Grass Roses Backdrop Ceremony

We are headed to the jungle for the Mexico wedding of WWW readers Fer and César. Fer is a wedding planner and so it’s no surprise that their day was not only beautiful but perfectly planned.

With a romantic and intimate vibe, the two of them eloped to the Mexico jungle, at Anand Eco to be precise. Firstly they had a gorgeous, emotional ceremony against a striking backdrop of flowers. Followed by a chic reception outdoors beneath the festoon lights, surrounded by the sounds of the jungle.

I really love the peach flowers, their gorgeous outfits and of course, the spectacular jungle setting.

Let me leave you with their account of their day, alongside the wonderful images by Viva Photography Weddings. Oh my!

Mexico Jungle Wedding

The Proposal

September 2019. New York. We went to New York for vacation last year, we’ve already been together for 3 years. He spent all week planning where he would propose and thought of several places like Brooklyn, Dumbo, Central Park.

In the end, he decided to wait until the last day of our trip to propose to me in our hotel room. He popped a bottle of champagne and proposed to me. So since the beginning, everything has been very intimate and romantic.

The Vision

I had always wanted a small wedding, due to the pandemic I thought that eloping would be the best way to do it.

By doing this I was able to pay more attention to the details. I love nude and peach colors so I imagined something very romantic with very pretty flowers.

The Planning Process

Everything was very fast, since I’m a wedding planner I only had to put together my favorite vendors, my absolute favorite is Canteiro Weddings.

The Venue

Anand was the magical venue. It’s a boutique eco-hotel, located right in the middle of the Mayan jungle.

An intimate and magical place, surrounded by nature. Incredible nights, sunsets and sunrises, fantastically harmonized by the sounds of the jungle!

Your Outfits & Accessories

I wanted something different, not the traditional white, I love champagne color. The dress was halter with ivory details.

I made my hairpiece with gold thread and pearls to give it a classic and romantic look.

Groom – The look must have been very fresh since in the heart of the jungle it is very hot.

Beauty

Hello Beauty was the MUA and hairstylist, they made a romantic and classic but messy hairstyle. The makeup was natural with gold details.

The Flowers

The bridal bouquet was full of peach and ivory flowers with a beautiful ivory silk ribbon. The arrangements for the ceremony were made with pampas grass and dry leaves to achieve the boho look.

The centerpiece for the reception table was made with only peach and ivory flowers.

The Cake

The cake was made by Pecado, I asked for an ombré cake in peach shades with a beautiful top of gold. Pecado is a local company located in Cancún that makes gorgeous designed cakes.

Your Photographer

Bernardo is the lead photographer for Viva Photography Weddings. He was responsible for all the photographs of our wedding. The intention of the photos was to capture the intimacy of the relationship and the complicity of us.

The Details & Décor

The place is so beautiful that it didn’t need much decoration. It’s right in the middle of the Mayan Jungle, with the ceremony arrangements and reception table was perfect.

The lighting helped create a warm and romantic ambience.

Advice For Other Couples

Remember that your wedding planner is your new best friend so trust them in every way.

They’re going to help you with all the details, design and budget so you have to talk about everything you want and need and I’m sure that if the communication is right for your wedding it’s going to be perfect.
