It takes a lot of courage and devotion to keep your spirits high and go all out to declare your love for someone after going through some of the tough hurdles that have marked the lives of many people around the world in 2020 and even in 2021.
As a proposal planner based in Cancun, I may not always know the full story behind every couple I get to meet, but I do know that every love story is extraordinary. So, obviously when I look back on Felix & Alanna's magical engagement in the Riviera Maya, I know I'm not mistaken.
It's hard to explain, but there is something in nature that brings out our most natural and sincerest emotions. Just take a look at this perfect match that was lucky enough to make it through the ups and downs of the pandemic, more united and with a love that proves to be much stronger than ever before!
Naturally, this much affection can only trigger my creativity and bring about a unique experience that is worthy of Felix & Alanna's next level of commitment in their relationship.
As promised, I needed to take some time away from my hectic agenda and look back on their very special day to reconnect with the vibration from Felix's epic proposal to Alanna amidst a mystic Mayan Jungle.
No words can explain the feeling of walking into a hidden gem nestled within the Riviera Maya, while being seduced by the echoing tune of Julio Sarracent's Sax interpretation of "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran, only to witness Alanna's partner in crime go down in one knee right before her eyes and pour his heart out by the most romantic and luxurious picnic featuring a refreshing bottle of Moët Impérial; one of France's most iconic champagnes which also takes me back to an unforgettable wine-tasting experience through the underground cellars of the Moët & Chandon Maison, situated in the Épernay region of the Marne Valley Vineyards.
Recommended little Honeymoon destination aside, I thought it was worth mentioning as Claudia del Rivero isn't just the amazing professional photographer that captured Felix & Alanna's representative moment, but she is also an experienced flytographer ...*hint, hint, wink, wink, nudge, nudge*!!! ...Anyway, for further guidance on this tiny travel tip, feel free to contact me as I will be more than thrilled to assist in any international holiday planning, as I was while organizing this one-of-a-kind marriage proposal by a cenote near Playa del Carmen.
There is one more thing I have to do before I close this very special post and that is show you my work, which brings me great joy as I always put my heart and my soul into every detail of the projects I take on.
Of course that's not everything, as Felix & Alana's day was filled with many surprises, including an earlier couple's massage at La Chan Cabañita Tulum and an over-the-top dinner celebration at Chambao Restaurant in Tulum. However, I know in my heart Alanna's most treasured memory belongs to that extraordinary moment when she said yes to Felix!
