“Taryn & Matt”
– Villa Yardena, Soliman Bay, Riviera Maya –
You know how you have this defining moments in your life when something happens and you’re like “wa-la”?! Well, thanks to Taryn & Matt, their wedding design and creation was PRECISELY that to me and my crew as we trekked out to Cancun to make Taryn & Matt’s dream wedding a reality! I learned SOOO much on this trip (Soliman Bay is WINDIER than Chicago, oh yes it is!) and had a fantastic time designing something thousands of miles away only to see it become a reality months later. I will never, ever, forget this experience and it’s all thanks to these two beautiful people!
Before I get yakkety yakking I wanted to thank Maria Tripaldi for all her hard work and help on our trip – she made things a lot easier for us and allowed us to simply walk in and get started right away, as though we had been there forever and have been doing this for a gazillion years, instead of our first time.
Also Villa Yardena was amazing to work with – their staff was super helpful and caring and the villa itself was beautiful! I highly recommend!
Taryn actually first came to me to have me design some maracas for her – a couple of emails in, when she casually mentioned that she had considered changing locations just so we could design her wedding I said, “Well, we could go to YOU, if you would like” and there you have it! On our way!
