We found Pridemaya off Tik Tok after discovering our venue. We were immediately impressed on how quickly Lorenzo responded when we sent out a request for a meeting for our wedding to plan. From Day 1 Lorenzo and his team were on top of it sending us amazing options for vendors and anytime we had a vision on adding something special they just nailed it. I am truly pleased on how graceful my wedding day was and received so many compliments from my family and friends on how well coordinated everything was ! I couldn't have had my fairy tale wedding if it was for Pride Maya! Thank you so much if your looking to have a destination wedding in any part of Mexico contact them ASAP!!!

Arranging a destination wedding can be quite overwhelming, particularly when it's in a foreign country. Fortunately, Pride Maya Weddings came to our rescue, ensuring our special day was flawlessly organized.

After reading glowing reviews on WeddingWire, we entrusted Pride Maya Weddings with our wedding plans, and they exceeded our expectations. Providing invaluable guidance every step of the way, they offered top-notch recommendations for every aspect of the ceremony.

Throughout the year leading up to the wedding, they maintained regular communication, offering reassurance during moments of stress and time constraints. Their responsiveness, even at odd hours, and their prompt coordination with vendors were immensely appreciated.

Our wedding day unfolded beautifully, with everything meticulously orchestrated behind the scenes, allowing us to relax and savor every moment. We just got a sneak peak of our photos and they were absolutely as vivid as the day it happened.

Lorenzo, Emily, and Gustavo made for an awesome team and went the extra mile to make sure we got everything we needed for the wedding day and made sure we were a priority.

Thank you Pride Maya Weddings for making our dream wedding come true! It was an absolute pleasure working with you.

From the initial consultation to the final send-off, they seamlessly transformed our dreams into reality. Their passion for their craft was palpable and their commitment to excellence was unmatched.
One of the most remarkable aspects of working with them was their ability to listen intently to our vision and infuse it with their own expertise, creating an event that felt uniquely "us" in every way. They effortlessly navigated through the intricacies of planning, leaving no stone unturned and no detail overlooked. In the midst of the inevitable stresses that come with wedding planning (ie a fight almost happening at our wedding that I didnt even know about), they remained a calming presence, offering reassurance, support, and a shoulder to lean on whenever we needed it most. Their dedication and hard work ensured that we could relax and fully immerse ourselves in the joy of the moment, creating memories that will last a lifetime. In the end, they weren't just a planner; they became cherished friends and an invaluable part of our love story. We are eternally grateful for their unwavering support, creativity, and above all, their genuine love for what they do. To anyone in search of a wedding planner who will go above and beyond to make your dreams come true, look no further than Pride Maya Weddings. They are simply the best in the business, and we feel truly blessed to have had them by our side every step of the way.

Lorenzo, Emily, Gustavo, and the team at PMW were so helpful to execute our dream wedding in Riviera Maya at the Fairmont Mayakoba. Lorenzo had excellent recommendations, but also helped us reach out to vendors we had researched independently that he hasn't worked with before. Planning a wedding thousands of miles away (from NYC), in our second language made the PMW even more valuable. They were so critical in making sure all of our expectations for vendors were communicated. They sent emails, hosted video calls, chatted via WhatsApp nearly constantly with us for months. We couldn't be more appreciative because our wedding day (and events throughout our wedding weekend) were absolutely perfectly executed. What a team! Highly recommend.

Lorenzo, Emily, and their whole team are absolutely AMAZING! Within minutes of chatting with Lorenzo on the phone almost 16 months ago, I knew I had found the wedding planner of my dreams! I was so nervous to choose a wedding planner that I had never met in person before, but I instantly felt safe in his hands and knew he would help us plan the destination wedding I had always dreamed of. From helping us choose a location to recommending a travel agency to work with during our first few meetings, I already knew I had made the best decision for our wedding (besides saying yes to my now husband!). Through our zoom calls and whatsapp messaging, they understood the type of person/bride I am and helped me choose vendors that would be a perfect fit (e.g., photographers that would make me feel comfortable and laugh throughout the day!). Emily and Lorenzo also helped me create wedding mood boards to help focus my vision and help the vendors make our dreams a reality! Every vendor and even the hotel we worked with all had amazing things to say about Lorenzo and his team and that made us feel even more confident that we were working with the best wedding planners ever! Not only did they help with choosing the perfect vendors, but they helped negotiate contracts / pricing for us. I didn’t realize I was Type A until I started to plan my wedding, but Emily stepped in and calmed every anxious thought I had during the planning process. She was so efficient and organized — helping me with spreadsheets, timelines, to do lists, and more. When my now husband and I came for our site visit after a crazy travel situation, I could not have been more excited to have Emily with us at the hotel to ask all the right questions, take detailed notes/photos/videos, emoji-filled tasting reviews, and start envisioning all of the wedding day details! She helped us think of small details like custom bar napkins and foam light up sticks that our guests are still talking about. During the last couple of months leading up to wedding day, the Pride Maya Wedding team worked directly with the hotel coordinator and all of the vendors to create timelines, ensure everyone had security access and all necessary equipment/etc, and confirmed everything. Even when it was hard to get ahold of our officiant in the months leading up to the wedding, Emily picked up the phone and called herself — with Lorenzo and Emily reassuring me that it would all work out (and it seriously did!).

When it came to actual wedding day, my maid of honor told me that she was nervous herself because I wasn’t anxious or nervous at all— but it’s because I knew I was in great hands with Emily, Lorenzo, and the whole team! The day went by in a blur of smiles/laughter/dancing/happiness, and I never had to worry or even think about a single thing. Emily, Lorenzo, and Gustavo kept everything moving on time and without a hitch! My husband and I are constantly hearing from friends and family that it was the best wedding ever and now even 2 weeks later are still talking about how much fun they had and how beautiful it was! I wish I could go back and relive every moment of our wedding day because it turned out more beautiful, fun, and perfect than I could have ever imagined. They created the most beautiful table settings that I am still in awe and drooling over all the photos. The only thing I am sad about post wedding is not getting to catch up with Emily and Lorenzo and hear about their own amazing travels! I wouldn’t change a single thing about our wedding and thats all thanks to Pride Maya Weddings!

PMW was the best decision my husband and I made to ensure our wedding this past November 19th was absolutely amazing! I contacted Lorenzo in March 2023, after we had a falling out with our previous all-inclusive hotel wedding venue through his website's form, I was extremely surprised at how he had sent an extensive and detailed email within a few hours. We scheduled an introductory call that same week and we knew that Lorenzo was our wedding planner right away. His responsiveness, honest feedback, and his/his team's utmost respect for our wants & needs for the wedding were a breath of fresh air. This was not a one-time deal, after we contracting with Pride Maya, Lorenzo, Gustavo, and Emily were always available and communicative within the time frames stipulated in the contract. Lorenzo, Gustavo, and Emily were always respectful of what we wanted and provided us with the best vendors according to what we were looking for. We had a multi-cultural wedding that we adjusted to our standards & desires and the Pride Maya team was always understanding and accommodating to what we were looking for. EVERYTHING about our wedding day was absolutely special. We have received (& continue to) amazing feedback from our family and friends from the high quality of our vendors to how smooth everything went during our wedding. All of this was made possible by Lorenzo,Gustavo,Emily, and Christina. I will always recommend PMW as the highest quality wedding planners in the Riviera Maya/Cancun area!
