Dazzling Tropical Boho Yacht Wedding *

Picture setting sail on a yacht in Mexico to exchange stunning sunset “I do’s”—sounds like an absolute dream, doesn’t it? Thanks to wedding planner Daniela Parra and a team of talented wedding vendors, this dream became a reality on board a luxury yacht from The Yacht Experiences.

Only minimal decor—like cushions, Kilim rugs, and florals—was needed to transform this opulent yacht into a dreamy floating wedding venue. The vibrant red and orange color palette beautifully complimented the Puerto Aventuras ocean skyline. On top of the stunning view, the royal blue water backdrop was the key to making the bride’s bouquet and ceremony backdrop florals by Pure Love Floral pop.

Thanks to photographer Luxart Wedding Studio, the wedding inspiration radiating from this boho yacht nuptial is here to stay. Whether you’re looking for wedding venue ideas or in need of elopement decorating tips, this nontraditional celebration is the unique inspo you’ve been looking for. Get your Pinterest boards, it’s time to let your creative elopement planning set sail. 

My Planner Journal’s Thoughts On This Boho Yacht Wedding

From the fashion to the theme, the sea heavily influenced the relaxed Bohemian style. The fashion, colors, and furniture were specifically chosen for comfort and to match the landscape. That’s why we stuck with minimalist decoration and an earth-tone color palette.

There were many memorable moments that stood out in the day. One of our favorites was the intimate Mayan ceremony with the stunning turquoise sea backdrop. Another was releasing petals and corn kernels to the sea—a unique unity ceremony—guaranteeing their love last forever.

Gorgeous And Glamorous Casa Baloyan Wedding

Daniela and Andres didn’t let COVID-19 stop them from having the French destination wedding of their dreams. Rather than tie the knot in a faraway place, the couple said “I do” at a stunning Casa Baloyan wedding that was dripping with French elegance–all while being close to their friends and family in Mexico! With the help of planner Alvaro Avila, the vineyard was transformed into a French-inspired space full of grand white florals from Oleandra, classic European-inspired table settings, and an abundance of candles.

From the getting-ready portraits to intimate moments in the villa’s library to a firework-lit reception, Junebug member and photographer Meraki Weddings captured every special moment from this glamorous wedding. They also did an amazing job summarizing details of the classic celebration below.

Photographer Meraki Weddings On The Day

Daniela and Andres got married at Casa Baloyan in Tijuana, which has an amazing architecture with green tones that perfectly matched the color palette they decided to use for their intimate and elegant event–white and green tones.

With combinations of greens, a beautiful arch of flowers in the backyard of the house, and a stunning view of the city and dreamy sunset, Daniela and Andres tied the knot surrounded by their closest family and friends. The intimate reception was held in the same location, with many floral arrangements illuminated by candle lights. The married couple danced all night under a magical full moon.

The Wedding:

Casa Baloyan, Tijuana, Mexico

Utilizing Classic Bridal Fashion

Both of our styles were classic with a modern twist. My style inspiration was pulled from Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, and my mom. I’ve always loved how brides look with minimalist makeup and a “pulled back” hairstyle. I love that our children will see our photos and we’ll have a classic and timeless look in them.

The Couple’s Favorite Wedding Photos

One of our favorite photos is of us at the ceremony listening to Father give the homily. We love it because we are very focused on what he is telling us and it was one of the most beautiful moments of the day. Another of our favorite photos is one that we are in the home’s library. The picture feels super dramatic and elegant at the same time.

Why A Casa Baloyan Wedding

The style of the wedding was inspired by a French Chateau. We wanted something elegant, timeless, romantic, and chic. This particular wedding venue belongs to a very good friend of my dad. We are very happy and grateful that he could lend us his residence, as it was perfect with our vision of the style of our wedding.

Stunningly Tropical Blue Venado Wedding

Summer may slowly be coming to an end, but that’s not going to stop us from obsessing over tropical destination weddings. Jessie and Sage’s Blue Venado wedding has everything you could want in a Tulum wedding–including a seaside ceremony, a party under disco balls, and a late-night taco truck. Planner Sofia Garcia Weddings truly did an amazing job of transforming the private wedding venue into a Pinterest-worthy boho affair.

It’s hard not to dream of warm afternoons on the sands of Mexico when looking at these beautiful photos captured by Maricarmen Arcos. So what are you waiting for? Keep scrolling and get those suitcases ready because there’s an airplane ticket waiting for you.

Wedding Planning Advice From The Bride

Don’t overthink all the small details. We wanted our wedding to be very stress-free and really focus on our marriage and being with our favorite people. That’s why we chose a destination wedding. The most important part of your wedding should be the marriage, not just the big celebration. But if you have an amazing wedding planner who takes your mood board and makes it come to life, that’s a plus!

Incorporating Unique Details At The Blue Venado Wedding

We chose a private venue in Mexico–Blue Venado–which made it very intimate and special for our guests and us. Our design was inspired by our different trips to Spain–the colors there and the beach, which is our favorite. It was very personalized to us as a couple.

Glam Boho Decor With Lots Of Florals

The vibe was very beachy bohemian. We had disco balls hanging from the ceiling with pampas grass, and our tables were covered with bright flowers consisting of terracotta, mustard yellow, and dark orange colors. We had an amazing triangle arch with flowers pouring over it and rugs to walk down the aisle on the beach.

Dramatic and Chic Mexican Hacienda Wedding

When planning their wedding, Fernanda and Sebastian wanted their Mexican Hacienda wedding to be unique with an Italian vibe. Once they stepped foot in the Hacienda Santa Ana y Lobos, it was love at first sight. After seeing their photos, we get it. This stunning venue features cobblestone streets, strung lights, and open courtyards. To add to the romantic feel, floral designer Florklor Estudio added cascading pastel florals to the entire venue, including the fountain, a Piaggio ape car, the altar, and along the staircase.

After tying the knot with a unique candle lighting ceremony, the couple and their guests headed to their reception area for sunset drinks and dancing. We won’t spoil the rest of this Mexican Hacienda wedding, so keep scrolling to see photos captured by Junebug member MC Weddings.

Magical Neutral Palette ARCA Tulum Wedding *

Magical Neutral Palette ARCA Tulum Wedding *

Now that the weather is warming up once again, we can’t seem to get enough of Mexico weddings. Mezcal, palm trees, and sand in your toes–what more could you ask for? Kari and Matt’s magical neutral palette Tulum wedding at ARCA Tulum had all of this and more. After visiting the tropical destination on vacation, the couple knew they wanted a weekend-long jungle party with their family and friends to celebrate their love. With the help of planner LM Weddings Tulum, that’s what they did.

The couple exchanged vows at a cenote overlooking the water before partying the night away under the glow of the disco balls. And although the venue’s natural beauty is unbeatable, the evening was elevated by extravagant floral arrangements from Moni Junco. Oh, and did we forget to mention that they flew their DJ in from Texas and there were also dancers in light-up costumes? 

These photos captured by Brooke Taelor have us packing our bags and booking flights, so get ready to get inspired. Because one look and you’ll be ready to jet off for your own destination wedding.

The Couple:

Kari and Matt

The Wedding:

ARCA Tulum, Tulum, Mexico

A Perfectly Magical Neutral Palette Tulum Wedding

Tulum is a place that Matt and I have loved since the first time we visited in 2018. This city exudes the same characteristics we wanted for our wedding. It’s energetic, unpretentious, and intoxicating. Using Tulum’s natural beauty as a backdrop, we opted for neutral colors, rich textures, and open-air concepts for an immersive experience that lasted all weekend long. We wanted the weekend to feel less like a wedding and more like a three-day journey through a magical jungle!

A Private Moment Between Bride And Groom

After the ceremony, Matt and I took a private shuttle back to ARCA to see the reception space before guests arrived. When we stepped foot into the entrance, both of our jaws hit the floor. Our incredible vendor team had magically transformed the restaurant into a romantic jungle oasis. The flowers, lighting, and decor surpassed our wildest dreams. That moment was especially memorable because of how much freedom we gave our vendors to create. We had no idea what to expect, and it was like walking into our very own surprise party! 

Highlighting Their Love For Music Throughout The Day

We refused to compromise on the music for our wedding. We started making a playlist for inspiration shortly after our engagement. Music is such an important part of our relationship, and we wanted it to be perfect. We flew our DJ, Christian Barbuto, from Austin to Tulum because we knew him well and trusted he would do an amazing job. He crushed it. Everything was curated to our musical taste, from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to well into the late-night party. Our reception started with our first dance song, “Treat You Better” by Rufus du Sol, and ended with a remixed version of the same song. I still get chills thinking about it!
