Royalton Riviera Maya Cancun Mexico Wedding: Jordan and James

A destination wedding planner was never a title I longed for, but Jordan and James changed my perception forever. Their destination wedding in Cancun Mexico was unbelievable in so many ways and it left me wanting much more! I enjoyed the adventure and loved the change in scenery from desert cactus to palm trees on the beach. But most of all, I’ll cherish my travel buddies and the memories we shared.

Jordan and James hosted their thirty closest friends and family to a week long retreat at The Royalton Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico. The all inclusive resort included incredible food, unlimited drinks and unbelievable beach and pool environments and activities. We enjoyed every bit of the hotels amenities, including the spa. J+J invited their guests to a welcome reception to kick off the festivities and celebrated on a catamaran full of laughs and good times. Their wedding day was gorgeous and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity to plan and design a modern tropical wedding for Jordan and James. See below!

Destination wedding planning is continuing for me this fall in Santorini, Greece and Scottsdale, Arizona! I’m a lucky girl.

Wedding Inspiration at The Doyle Las Vegas

I’m thrilled to be bringing you this gorgeous wedding inspiration today, which was also recently featured on Bride Link! We partnered with The Doyle Las Vegas and the incredible Javier Valentino to create an unbelievable ceremony and reception space full of jewel tone floral. I paired Javier’s lush floral design with velvet linens, marble china, deep mahogany chairs and candlesticks for a unique modern industrial look. The cement floors and white brick walls offered a clean palette for this bold splash of color. Although we created risky combinations, the outcome was really exciting! A huge thank you to Taylored Photo Memories for capturing this styled wedding and providing Scheme couples a fresh take on our designs. Enjoy!

Casa de Shenandoah with Chelsea Nicole Photography

When Chelsea Nicole sends you a beautiful bridal inspiration board with an incredible color palette including peach, you jump! And that’s what I did. Blush has been a popular color for a couple years now. I love it, but peach made me excited. I took inspiration from Chelsea’s mood board and designed a tablescape mixing textures, metallics and colors. A light wooden table with a raw ivory silk runner sat beneath City Blossoms gorgeous floral centerpieces. Each place setting was complete with bronze leaf textured chargers and flatware, peach vintage china and napkins and modern crystal glassware. The combination came together beautifully and this styled wedding sits at the top of my list. You’ll see why!
