An off-resort wedding offers to couples who are looking for a private and intimate wedding celebration at Mayan Riviera divers possibilities. Blue Venado beach club is one of our favorite wedding locations for the intimate wedding ceremony at the beach. It is quiet and peaceful, green and natural with a breathtaking ocean view and a white sand beach. It is also only 25 minutes from Playa del Carmen what makes it a perfect wedding location for those who stay in the area. Omi and Doug’s wedding was absolutely stunning and fabulous. I don’t have enough of words to describe how made us feel this couple with their group of family and friends by celebrating their wedding as they did… Definitely, this was the most emotional, the most spontaneous wedding ceremony of this year ended with a hilarious party dancing at night! So many memorable moments from this day and we can’t wait anymore to share them with a world!  If you are planing a destination wedding at Blue Venado and you still have doubts, here Omi-the-bride is sharing her experience:

”One of the words that came up time and time again when discussing the type of wedding that we wanted to have was “intimate.”  So, we wanted a venue that would allow us to create an intimate atmosphere for us and our guests.  Blue Venado was a perfect fit because of the privacy that it affords.  We didn’t have to worry about strangers walking by or taking photos of our special day.  Not to mention the fact that the space is large and absolutely beautiful.  Honestly, the pictures don’t do it justice.  Blue Venado is even more impressive in person. Also, we wanted the ability to customize everything about the wedding, which you typically can’t do with a resort wedding.  The resorts tend to have a cookie-cutter approach, and we didn’t want that.  We had a very specific vision about everything aspect of the wedding and we wanted to be able to execute that vision dress getting ready blue venado wedding

Your favorite moment of the day was: Seeing one another for the first time at the ceremony was definitely a favorite.  Wiping away each other’s tears while reading our vows to one another will never be forgotten either.  But honestly, we loved everything about our wedding.  Being surrounded by so much love made it feel like one big dream come true.”

We are honored to make a part of your big day, Omi and Doug, thank you for your trust.
