Pride Maya Weddings made my dream Tulum wedding a reality!

Lorenzo, Emily, and their whole team are absolutely AMAZING! Within minutes of chatting with Lorenzo on the phone almost 16 months ago, I knew I had found the wedding planner of my dreams! I was so nervous to choose a wedding planner that I had never met in person before, but I instantly felt safe in his hands and knew he would help us plan the destination wedding I had always dreamed of. From helping us choose a location to recommending a travel agency to work with during our first few meetings, I already knew I had made the best decision for our wedding (besides saying yes to my now husband!). Through our zoom calls and whatsapp messaging, they understood the type of person/bride I am and helped me choose vendors that would be a perfect fit (e.g., photographers that would make me feel comfortable and laugh throughout the day!). Emily and Lorenzo also helped me create wedding mood boards to help focus my vision and help the vendors make our dreams a reality! Every vendor and even the hotel we worked with all had amazing things to say about Lorenzo and his team and that made us feel even more confident that we were working with the best wedding planners ever! Not only did they help with choosing the perfect vendors, but they helped negotiate contracts / pricing for us. I didn’t realize I was Type A until I started to plan my wedding, but Emily stepped in and calmed every anxious thought I had during the planning process. She was so efficient and organized — helping me with spreadsheets, timelines, to do lists, and more. When my now husband and I came for our site visit after a crazy travel situation, I could not have been more excited to have Emily with us at the hotel to ask all the right questions, take detailed notes/photos/videos, emoji-filled tasting reviews, and start envisioning all of the wedding day details! She helped us think of small details like custom bar napkins and foam light up sticks that our guests are still talking about. During the last couple of months leading up to wedding day, the Pride Maya Wedding team worked directly with the hotel coordinator and all of the vendors to create timelines, ensure everyone had security access and all necessary equipment/etc, and confirmed everything. Even when it was hard to get ahold of our officiant in the months leading up to the wedding, Emily picked up the phone and called herself — with Lorenzo and Emily reassuring me that it would all work out (and it seriously did!).

When it came to actual wedding day, my maid of honor told me that she was nervous herself because I wasn’t anxious or nervous at all— but it’s because I knew I was in great hands with Emily, Lorenzo, and the whole team! The day went by in a blur of smiles/laughter/dancing/happiness, and I never had to worry or even think about a single thing. Emily, Lorenzo, and Gustavo kept everything moving on time and without a hitch! My husband and I are constantly hearing from friends and family that it was the best wedding ever and now even 2 weeks later are still talking about how much fun they had and how beautiful it was! I wish I could go back and relive every moment of our wedding day because it turned out more beautiful, fun, and perfect than I could have ever imagined. They created the most beautiful table settings that I am still in awe and drooling over all the photos. The only thing I am sad about post wedding is not getting to catch up with Emily and Lorenzo and hear about their own amazing travels! I wouldn’t change a single thing about our wedding and thats all thanks to Pride Maya Weddings!

The perfect event prepared by the perfect team

Words cannot describe how exceptional of a job that Lorenzo, Gustavo and Emily put together for our special day. All their suggestions and recommendations were spot on. They were excellent listeners to ensure that our dream wedding came true.

We had family from all over the world come to the wedding and they all had amazing things to say. That is all because of Pride Maya Weddings.

Thank you for making our dream wedding.

Best wedding planners in Riviera Maya/Cancun

Pride Maya was the best decision my husband and I made to ensure our wedding this past November 19th was absolutely amazing!

I contacted Lorenzo in March 2023, after we had a falling out with our previous all-inclusive hotel wedding venue, through his website's form, I was extremely surprised at how he had sent an extensive and detailed email within a few hours. We scheduled an introductory call that same week and we knew that Lorenzo was our wedding planner right away. His responsiveness, honest feedback, and his/his team's utmost respect for our wants & needs for the wedding were a breath of fresh air. This was not a one-time deal, after we contracting with Pride Maya, Lorenzo, Gustavo, and Emily were always available and communicative within the time frames stipulated in the contract. Lorenzo, Gustavo, and Emily were always respectful of what we wanted and provided us with the best vendors according to what we were looking for. We had a multi-cultural wedding that we adjusted to our standards & desires and the Pride Maya team was always understanding and accommodating to what we were looking for.

Meetings with Lorenzo and Emily to coordinate with vendors and wedding-day activities were smooth and truly enjoyable. It truly felt as if I was talking with friends who were able to both respect my wedding decor/decision goals but provided excellent guidance. The feedback on vendors was spot on; Pride Maya understands that you are their client and they do not play favorite with the vendors at your expense. ALL of the vendors that we ended up choosing were highly recommended and carefully filtered by Lorenzo.

I truly loved my wedding day, I was not worried at any moment about the quality of the team I was working with, both from Pride Maya and the vendors that Lorenzo carefully screens before working with them. I was wowed by Lorenzo's/Pride Maya's standards across the board, from brainstorming, to planning to wedding day operations.

EVERYTHING about our wedding day was absolutely special. We have received (& continue to) amazing feedback from our family and friends from the high quality of our vendors to how smooth everything went during our wedding day. All of this was made possible by Lorenzo, Gustavo, Emily, and Christina.

I will always recommend Pride Maya as the highest quality wedding planners in the Riviera Maya/Cancun area!
