Belize is well know as one of the world top beach destinations weddings and this wedding is part of Belize’s beach wedding history! It is done and was wonderful!
A wedding where all is about getting away with family & best friends, a wedding where everyone was in good mood and you could feel the positive vibes around.
Davis & Alex, your wedding was one of a kind and I loved every bit of it. Your family and friends are amazing and love was in the air!
Enjoy your first photos, from many more to come.
“Quinceañera sometimes called fiesta de quince años, fiesta de quinceañera, quince años or simply quince, is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.”
Paz family was the first one that accept me and my family around them and they make us consider ourselfs part of their family. So, this event was very closed to my heart as I know the entire family and around them I feel HOME!
Velie Alexi Williams, her 15th Birthday was traditionally celebrated with immediate family (a huge family). All I can say is “WOW”, amazing party details and Alexi is a pure belizean beauty!
The church was all dressed up for ceremony, the family spirit and happiness and emotions was the mood of the day.
Here are first photos from last night:
Photos with guests will be posted sometimes in January.
Lupe & Tim, 2 fantastic people full with positive energy & happiness. What a fantastic day you had!
I absolutely loved the little cozy resort where you were staying, Xanadu. Amazing spacious rooms with tons of natural light, perfect view and pure tropical atmosphere, your day amazed me from the beginning.

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday… The celebration takes place on November 1 and 2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased… (source Wikipedia).
This morning, I had no clue what I’ll post today, on my facebook page as Photo of the Day… I completely forgot about this celebration and I was really bummed that I did not went last night in the cemetery to get the photo I wanted.
So, in the morning, I went to church… said a prayer, snap 1 photo…
stop by the cemetery… unfortunately or fortunately, I don’t know anyone there but I did snap a photo, just because of the special day is today…
and I went to visit a local friend, Miss
Milo who I knew is good catholic and very dedicated to those family celebrations, told me what is the ritual for this day… she is cooking for the entire family (a huge family one). ”
“At 12 pm sharp, we are saying the praires in front of the altar I have at my house and than, everyone eats… and you and your husband are welcomed”.
So, we went…
At 12:00 pm sharp they start praying in front of the little altar from miss Milo’s house:
The altar in a traditional belizean house have the favourite food of the loved ones that passed away…
To Milo’s Family from San Pedro: thank you for having us in your house today! God Bless!
