Ami and Hari’s wedding journey began when they worked with us to determine the best location and resort. It can feel overwhelming very quickly if you do this on your own without any help, and it’s always much easier when you have pros on your side who know which resorts have experience with South Asian weddings.

Lastly, the resort offers a plethora of activities and amenities, from world-class spas to championship golf courses, ensuring that both the couple and their guests have an unforgettable and enjoyable experience throughout their stay.

Gareth Davies Photography perfectly captured Ami and Hari’s wedding story. Gareth always manages to get the vibrant, one-of-a-kind shots that would seem almost impossible for many other photographers. He has an eye for the details and has worked with South Asian couples extensively so he knows which moments are especially important to include.
We love that when Gareth works, he stays focused and ready to go no matter what is happening around him. He’s a talented, pro photographer who makes every client shine in their photos. As you select a wedding photographer, ensure that they can demonstrate that they have a keen eye for details through their portfolio.
As you browse their work, you want to look for one that has various styles they can show you instead of having the same type of style for every wedding they have done. You want a photographer who will also have a solid team that communicates well with you.

Working with Evoke for furniture rentals and Amada for the flowers, Ami and Hari were able to customize the feel of the wedding. These elements helped create a dreamy atmosphere for the guests throughout each event. They each offered multiple options to create an environment that was suited perfectly to their unique taste.
As you consider your florist and décor providers, sometimes it helps to go through the resort if they have these resources as you can often secure package deals that can save you money.
Ami got the five-star treatment from the Alex Corbanezi team who did her hair and makeup. We love that they gave her a glam look that brought out her natural beauty for each of her wedding events. This team specializes in weddings throughout the Riviera Maya, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Cancun and Merida. They have extensive experience serving South Asian brides.
Brides love that they the hair and airbrush makeup they do for clients is long lasting and stands up to the hot and humid tropical weather. When you look for a makeup artist for your own wedding, inquire about what techniques or particular makeup they use to ensure the look will last.
