From the moment Stephanie told us about her approach towards planning her wedding at Azul Fives and how much she wants it to be an intimate wedding, gathering her closest family and friends for a relaxing and memorable few days with celebration… we knew it was going to be good!Photo by Erik Shenko

We met Stephanie and Tim a couple of days before their wedding at Azul Fives hotel at Playa del Carmen where we stayed for two days also, exploring the territory and getting ready for the big day. This hotel is pretty small with amazing beach-line and european stile restaurants, which we liked a lot. One of the first things Stephanie told us when we arrived was that they are not ”all inclusive” stile of tourists and they love to explore new places by themselves and independently, but this time, they decided to make an exception so all their guests can relax and enjoy the week before the wedding at an ”all inclusive” luxury resort. This couple gave us an impression of being a really caring persons with lots of love for each other and for people around them. The wedding celebration was just as we were expecting it to be – warm, friendly, delightful and full of harmony. While this beautiful family wedding was flowing Erik and I were capturing the magic. We loved being a part of this small wedding at Playa del Carmen.
Stephanie and Tim had their ceremony at the rooftop with a breathtaking views of Riviera Maya, followed by a reception at the most romantic place of the hotel – Azul Five’s dock, surrounded by crystalline sea, facing Cozumel island. Hope you enjoy this soft and intimate caribbean wedding just as we did.
