yesica & josé – villa la joya riviera maya

Yesica and José are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! This bride and groom wanted an intimate destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico, and their wedding day exceeded their expectations thanks to a fabulous team and a jaw-dropping venue.

Here is their story…

Yesica and José could have met during high school because they shared mutual friends, but the universe decided it was not ready for them yet. It wasn’t until years later that Yesica’s brother-in-law introduced them, and then, as they say ‘the rest is history’.

Fast forward to a few years later, when the couple joined their family on a vacation to Cancun. Yesica had no idea that José had marriage on his mind, and was genuinely shocked when he proposed to her on a hill over the ocean in Tulum.

After a long deliberation, they decided that a destination wedding with just their closest family and friends was the perfect fit for them. And why not go back to where it all began? The spectacular Riviera Maya, Mexico.

This place is amazing and makes you never want to leave. So worth it if you are looking for a smaller, intimate setting!

The bride and groom were married at Nuestra Senora del Carmen catholic church and then moved the party over to the lavish Villa La Joya for their wedding reception. Yesica raves about it, saying that the property is one you can only imagine seeing in a magazine or in the movies, and that the staff were so accommodating with their wishes. This was the perfect location for their wedding. (Note: we will be adding Villa La Joya to our favorite offsite wedding venues because it is truly fab!)

The bride and groom wanted a romantic feel for their wedding reception, and their marvelous wedding planner Natalia Schweitzer of Weddings On The Beach brought their vision to life with a color palette of blush, gold and ivory, and loads of candles for soft lighting. The decor was the icing on the cake for Yesica, and made the location and celebration even that much better!

Their wedding day was perfect, and they couldn’t have imagined it any better.

And what advice does Yesica have for all the brides-to-be out there?

Make sure you are comfortable in your wedding dress, and wear it all day! And all the planning, stressing and saving will all be worth it in the end.
