amber & mauricio – grand coral beach club

Amber and Mauricio are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest Newlyweds! This bride and groom came full circle with a destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico because this is where it all began for them.

Here is their story…

Five and a half years ago, Mauricio was part of the sports and entertainment staff at a resort in Playa del Carmen. Amber and her family came from Canada to this resort to celebrate her parents’ 25th wedding anniversary. Fate stepped in and created a problem with her family changing hotels. A few hours later Mauricio approached Amber to play volleyball, and then went up to her mom and said

“So you’re my future Mother in Law.”

And the rest is history.

Amber and Mauricio ended up calling the Riviera Maya home for three years, and so when it came time to tie the knot, getting married on the beach in Playa del Carmen made sense for these two.

Their wedding vision was realized by none other than the fabulous Kristee Smith of Fresa Weddings, who helped them plan a destination wedding with a Mexican Glam theme, blending Amber’s desire for vibrant colors with Mauricio’s hope for something timeless and classic. The clean white, navy and gold palette allowed the vibrant floral arrangements by Vanessa Jaimes Floral Design to bring in the spirit of Mexico.

There were a few unique touches brought into their wedding day. Amber and Mauricio’s two and a half-year-old son carried a sign that read ‘Daddy here comes our girl’. And when the bride and groom made their reception entrance at the Grand Coral Beach Club (one of the best places for destination weddings in Riviera Maya), it was dancing to a song made special to them during their days working at the same hotel in Mexico. Family, friends and even their son all joined in on the dance.

In the end, their wedding surpassed their expectations.

What is Amber’s advice to all the bride-to-be’s out there?

“Enjoy every minute of the day. It goes by way to fast!”

Amber and Mauricio, a huge congratulations to you and your son on this next chapter in your lives together. It has been a true pleasure sharing in your special day, and we look forward to seeing you again!
