Welcome Meeting for the bride and groom and invited guests.
Earth, Air, Fire, and Water Blessing. Using symbolic totems of the four elements (brought by the bride and groom) or provided from the rich on-site options found in the tropical Caribbean landscape, i.e., a shell, beautiful stone, a wedding candle, and the sacred copal incense, the bridal couple is given an Elemental Blessing of love, purity, devotion, health, and clarity.
Intention-Setting Circle to set the foundation of the wedding in a circle of light, clearing energetic discordances, and elevating the wedding plans to the highest vibration. Composition of the content of the wedding will be discussed: the order of events; the vows; the preferences of music; readings, etc.
Gratitude Offering - an opportunity for the bride, groom, and family of the couple to offer thanks for this special occasion that marks the union of the two individuals and the goodness that has been part of their lives prior to, and upon meeting one another.
Meditation for the bride and groom. A proven method to clear the energy
of the 7 primary chakras of the body and to increase the vibrancy of
the body’s aura (energy field).
Partner Yoga Class – a special class for the bride and groom to deepen their connection through the shared experience of partner stretches, breathing exercises, and a Sun and Sea meditation.
Group Yoga Class – a Mixed-Level Hatha Yoga Class appropriate for people of all ages who have traveled to be with their friends and loved ones and witness their wedding celebration; a wonderful way to work out the kinks and tension from traveling.
Wedding Day Events recorded by a professional photographer and videographer.
Morning Flower Blessing - Flowers represent beauty, joy, contentment, and celebration. The bride, with her girlfriends and the female members of her family will enjoy being surrounded by beautiful flowers and natural aromatic oil essences as they prepare for the wedding.
The event can include: hair and make up applications; pedicures and manicures; massages; Mimosas or tropical fruit juice; traditional wedding folk music (or music of the bride’s choice).
Wedding Ceremony - On a beautiful beach in the Mayan Riviera, the bride and groom are surrounded by a circle of their loved ones who individually may share a blessing for the couple when the “talking stick” (a sea shell) is passed to them: they can choose to sing a song; offer a prayer; share a story; recite a poem;, give a hug; or toast to love!
and Moon Ceremony – For couples getting married near
the full or new moon, this rite of passage incorporates the merging
of the Male and Female aspects of the Sun & Moon and Yin & Yang;
a powerful ritual.
