Romantic Destination Modern Jewish Wedding in Playa del Carmen

The Modern Jewish Wedding Details

Alla and Zach dreamt of a beautiful and tropical destination wedding at Punta Venado in paradise Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Their dream became a reality this year – a warm ocean breeze blowing, clear blue waters and a spectacular view to celebrate their love. The two love spending quality time together, traveling and sharing their mutual love for the environment and clean energy.
On the day of the wedding, Alla looked absolutely stunning in her white, strapless wedding gown with a fitted bodice and ruched skirt. Her bridesmaids wore mix matched crimson red gowns which perfectly matched the red and white color theme of the wedding. Zach looked just as handsome in a tan suit and red polka dot tie while his groomsmen sported tan suits with simple red ties.
Before the ceremony, the two shared a touching “first look” on the white sandy beach. The ceremony itself was beautiful with a white ethereal chuppah under which the couple shared their vows. The reception was just as stunning with romantic hanging bulb lights, a large LED dance floor and white tables with red decor under a giant Mexican palapa. The two lovebirds danced the night away surrounded by their closest family and friends. It was truly a magical day.
Alla tells us how she and Zach met.
We met at a mutual friend’s holiday party in December 2010. We bonded over our shared interests in cleantech, entrepreneurship, spirituality and gin and tonic. Following a few technical difficulties in getting in touch, some weeks later we serendipitously ran into each other at Kramer Books. (In full disclosure, Alla was on a date, but Zach swooped in nonetheless). Some more technical difficulties later, Alla and Zach finally scheduled their first meeting. In the next 9 months we became the dearest of friends: advising each other on life’s twists and turns and supporting each other in realizing our professional aspirations. After countless dinners, work marathons, outings with friends and sharing raw, real stories and views in a way you would only share with a friend, we were slowly falling for each other. Everyone around us saw the inevitable months before we did. Finally, around early October 2011, we decided to leap headlong into the unknown and see where our affection for each other would take us. Our adventures have taken us from Washington to India to Croatia, from peaceful weekends at the Maryland farm to festive Russian family celebrations in Chicago and Kansas City, through job changes, yoga retreats and dietary cleanses. Following the glorious wedding of our friends Tori and Stew in Punta Mita, Mexico last November, Zach planned a trip to Yelapa, a remote fishing village only accessible by boat. We arrived at our breathtakingly beautiful open-air accommodation at sunset. The owner warned us about the dangers of staying in the jungle and advised not leave out any food, watch out for scorpions and mentioned that we’ll likely be visited by Ziggy, a friendly iguana. With the dangers of the jungle and the perfect sunset on the horizon, Zach proposed. I said yes, and so here we are…”
