Everyone loves a beautiful beach wedding, and the nuptials of Pooja and Pratik were no exception. This happy couple said their “I do’s” in a gorgeous beach ceremony surrounded by family, friends, and a stunning backdrop at the all-inclusive Generations Riviera Maya resort in Mexico.
Let’s take a look at all the details that went into making this destination wedding a dream come true.
Pooja and Pratik’s wedding journey began when they worked with us to determine the best location and resort. It can feel overwhelming if you do this on your own but without help, they were able to quickly narrow down the options and find the best resorts that are experienced in South Asian weddings.
We advised that they select Generations Riviera Maya not only for its exceptional location but the amount of space it offers for the various wedding events throughout the week. Generations Riviera Maya is an all-inclusive resort located on Mexico’s Caribbean coast.
Perfectly situated between Akumal Bay and Yalku Lagoon, this resort offers couples and their guests breathtaking views of crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, lush jungle landscapes, and Mayan ruins. The perfect spot for an unforgettable destination wedding!
Not only did it offer all of the amenities that they wanted for their special day including incredible ocean views, but it also offered plenty of activities for their guests to enjoy during their stay such as paddle boarding, snorkeling and yoga classes.
Pyaar Planning was the wedding planner and they made sure Pooja and Pratik’s wedding ran smoothly from start to finish. They work hard for their clients and ensure that everything is perfectly organized. In addition, on-site wedding coordinators and designers included Perla, Valeria Martinez and Angelica Vargas helped execute all of the wedding details.
We have loved being vendor partners with them for weddings of our other clients and we can attest to how hard they work to ensure the happiness of their clients. Having a wedding planner and wedding coordinator by your side is critical to having a beach destination wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean. As you consider different wedding planners, ensure that you review their social media posts to see examples of the work they have done for other clients.
James and Weddings was the incredible wedding photographer and videographer for the wedding. Their philosophy is to tell stories through their photos, focus on emotion, and spend time getting to know each couple so they can understand their style.
As you see from these photos, the team worked hard to capture these very special moments and shot creative angles that told the story of the wedding beautifully. They have a talent for being able to show the connection between couples in a way that few can.
Lomas Travel provided transportation services for the guests who arrived and ensured they enjoyed their ride to the resort. They were ready with signs for the guests at the airport and worked diligently to get everyone there quickly and safely so they didn’t have to wait long to explore the beautiful resort.
The beautiful wedding décor for Pooja and Pratik’s wedding was by Weddings by Lomas Travel with flowers by Etirios Floral Atelier. We have been impressed by their work for our own past clients and they did not disappoint at this wedding, either! They have an eye for detail that is unmatched and they know how to coordinate texture and color to create an ambience that is breathtaking.
No South Asian wedding can be considered incredible if the food isn’t top quality. Luckily, with Chef Kaushal on their side, Pooja and Pratik had an assortment of mouth-watering South Asian cuisines and treats that impressed the guests. Chef Kaushal works tirelessly to ensure that every meal is delicious, perfectly seasoned and full of authentic flavor.

Jessica used her expertise to create a look that was both chic and elegant. The makeup was designed to be timeless yet modern; it complemented Jessica’s traditional South Asian attire while also highlighting her individual beauty.

Hair and additional makeup for the rest of the wedding party was by Alex Corbanezi.

And when it came to Pooja’s wedding look, they provided that same level of service and artistry.
