“Anita and I fell in love with the magic of Tulum years ago. We consider it one of our favorite places on earth.” – Maurice
“Although Tulum’s endless white sand beach is the face of the town, the candle-lit jungle is its heart — the source of its magic — and we wanted to be in the center of that during our ceremony.”
The beach, ocean views, and sunshine are what we most often associate with a Mexican Destination wedding. Anita and Maurice though fell in love with the lush jungle of Tulum and the romantic ambiance of the night. We LOVE couples who throw tradition to the wind and come up with a destination wedding that truly represents THEM! With the help of super wedding coordinator Lucy Gallagher, they discovered the beautiful Shiva Tulum, a restaurant nestled in the heart of Tulum’s beach zone.
When Anita and Maurice told us that they wanted a non-traditional spiritual wedding ceremony, we were delighted to connect them with our friend and officiant Lorena.
“The process of creating the ceremony starting with a long conversation with Lorena. She wanted to get to know us — understand our history, our spirituality and our dreams….to make sure that she could feel a connection to us in order to create a ceremony that would be meaningful and personalized.”
“We feel that Lorena chose us as much as we chose her, which made the ceremony authentic and very special for us, as well as our guests.” – Maurice

Del Sol: What did you learn from your Shiva Tulum Wedding experience?
“The most important lesson learned from our wedding is to keep in mind that your friends and family traveled far and wide to celebrate you. Your love, union, and future life together. So don’t sweat some of the details that inevitably don’t come out exactly as you may have envisioned. They won’t notice or care! :)” – Maurice
