|Latin Asia is the best one-stop shop for all your destination wedding planning needs. To be honest, my husband and I did not have any guidance on how to start planning our South Asian destination wedding since neither of us have ever attended one before. It was a dream of ours that we have only seen in movies or social media.
As we were researching, we came across Latin Asia’s website which had package deals on every single type of South Asian wedding, and it even differentiated “Muslim” from “Ismaili,” which really caught our attention since we are Sunni Muslim.
Another big thing that caught our attention was obviously the fact that it was a One-Stop Shop that actually gave us a detailed layout on everything they will provide AND an estimate on how much the total would be. I loved that this price included the little things like hair, make up, henna artist, dhol player, etc. Once we contacted them, our first impression of Saku was impeccable. She answered all our questions with confidence and we truly believed we could trust her right away. You could tell this wasn’t her first rodeo. It was love at first sight. Throughout the planning process, Saku and her team replied to all our emails in a timely manner, even when we would send 6 different emails asking 6 different questions in one day. Keep in mind, we planned our entire wedding during the pandemic, meaning I could not visit Cancun or the venue even once before my wedding. Saku and her team would go and be our eyes and voice to the resort. Every zoom meeting we had with Saku and her team, we would feel as if we were in Cancun every time. Those meetings would truly be stress relievers because we saw all the work they’ve been doing behind the scenes and I would feel more and more accomplished every time.
|As thorough as Latin Asia was in the wedding planning process, I still couldn’t help but go into our wedding weekend blind since it was my first time seeing everything in person. However, Saku and her team didn’t let us down. The wedding was a magical experience and Saku ensured that our stress was kept to a minimum. In fact, she primarily communicated with our family the week of the wedding for any questions or coordination of last minute items so that we only had to worry about having fun.
It was a small gesture that really made such a difference in our wedding experience and really speaks volumes about Saku and the love she has for her couples. Every little detail was perfect and we have absolutely no regrets about our wedding. All of our guests were in awe of how beautiful and organized the wedding was and many of them are even considering Latin Asia for their wedding planning needs.
|Saku and her team are lifelong friends with us and many of our family/friends that were in Cancun! Latin Asia Family Forever!|
|We highly recommend Latin Asia One Stop Solution for anyone looking to get married in Mexico. We pretty much trusted Saku and her team with everything and we can truly say that they have outdone themselves. They were extremely helpful and were always available for us. We were able to enjoy all of our events without any stress was only because of Saku and her team. They really take care of everything the second you step on the resort till you leave the resort.
With Saku and her team, we always felt that our wedding was a priority. We really appreciated that because we were investing so much time and money into these events. We wanted to make sure that they were executed as we had imagined. Saku and her team made our wedding day dreams come true!
Saku’s strong relationships with wedding vendors in Mexico was a particular boon. We were planning our wedding remotely from New York, and Saku made this incredibly simple, by conducting site visits on her own and by communicating clearly and responding swiftly by email. We were able to relax and get ready for all of our events knowing that everything was in stellar hands.
Saku and her team has such a fun, easygoing spirit and we truly enjoyed working with them. They were very professional throughout the whole planning process but were also were personable
|We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Generations Riviera Maya. The staffs were very helpful including the wedding staffs. They made sure that all of the details were prepared for all of our events way before the event. In fact, for one of our events they accommodated a different venue at the very last minute due to the weather. Overall, they made us feel welcome and comfortable.
All the vendors that we had chosen for our events were incredible. They all did a wonderful job during our events. They always made themselves available for meetings and listened to our requests. One of the things that we truly appreciate about our vendors was that they went above and beyond for our events.
|The resort planning department was very involved. Certainly we did have some communication issues but after speaking with our wedding planner, things were sorted very quickly. Resort planning department was always available for us and listened to our requests. They made sure that some of the things that we ended up last minute were available during our events. We highly recommend this resort for anyone looking to get married in Mexico.|
I hope you and your family are staying safe. Both Jake and I work in cybersecurity so as soon as we got back home from the wedding instead of having a relaxing few weeks or even days, we were all of a sudden working 12-13 hours days due to COVID-19 b/c of the nature of our jobs. But we are blessed we both had jobs and are able to work from home. And we truly feel blessed we were able to have the wedding right before the cusp of everything shutting down so everyone made it home safely and COVID free.
We owe you a huge thank you for the absolutely amazing job that you and your team did with all of our events! What you put together was more wonderful than we ever could have imagined. Thank you so much for going above and beyond with this. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you, or the best place to leave a great review so that others know how wonderful you are!
Nicole and Dhruv

Maya & Arvind
Hi Saku!! I’m in love with how everything turned out. Thank you for a memorable wedding 🥰
Pooja & Shiv Amin
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us make our dreams into reality.
Our wedding was everything I’ve ever wanted and so much more! Thanks to you all!
Hi Saku & Claudia,
I wanted to send a quick note to say THANK YOU for an incredible job on all at our wedding this past weekend!!!! We received so many compliments with how beautiful everything looked, and I’m so amazed with how you made all my visions come to life. I truly truly appreciate it, and I hope to see you again one day! I will continue to recommend you to any friends or followers on Instagram looking into destination weddings in Cancun!
Here’s our same-day edit video if you’d like to see how beautiful it all turned out 🙂
The day after our celebration of love / wedding was over, Saku asked me, “Was it worth it?”
And by ‘it’, she meant all the time spent planning, organizing, researching…..and believe me, it was a questions I often asked myself throughout the planning process.
Intentions and values was how we started planning this moment. We had one BIG goal, each and every person to feel special and loved, because each and every one of them was special to us.
Saku came in midway thru our planning process and was a breath a fresh air. She is thoughtful, direct, organized, and asks good questions. This is so valuable, especially when planning a wedding in Cancun. In addition to planning, she was our day of coordinator for the events. Saku was our anchor, since the hotel team ended up being difficult to work with and unorganized. Every event, she coordinated and lead the team of vendors. She was a pleasure to work with in the planning process and allowed us to enjoy our events. She worked with our family members and treated us as family. She always lovingly addressed my father as Babaji. Masato, Saku’s husband, was a surprise bonus. He was always paying attention to all our friends and family. During the reception, he noticed and helped out a guest who suddenly didn’t feel well.
Her company Latin Asia did an amazing job. We love nature and had all our events outdoors. They understood our vision to accent the already beautiful nature all around. They were easy to communicate with, organized, and fun to plan with.
We will never forget the wedding day. At about 2:30am of the wedding day, we made the decision to move the beach wedding to an earlier time due to weather concerns. Saku had told us the night before; there was a possibility of storms. We communicated with Saku, and she and the Latin Asia Team made it work! The wedding went as planned, just a few hours earlier than previously scheduled. We deeply appreciate being supported in our vision to have a wedding under sunny blue skies.
“Was it worth it?” Well Saku, what do you think? I will tell you on our end it is a YES. We had so many friends and family say how wonderful they FELT and what a great time they had. That’s what it is all about. Each person feeling loved and special, because they have showered Bobby and I with love and support all throughout our lives.
Saku and the entire Latin Asia Team; much appreciation for creating a special moment/wedding for us, our friends, and family. We highly recommend wedding planning and decor with these guys.
Saku, dad and I are ready for your next vow renewal ceremony! Where to this time?
Besitos, Neha & Bobby
When I first starting planning my wedding I was completely confused and some would even describe it as lost. My fiancé at the time and I decided to go to Mexico and meet with all 6 months before our wedding and make sure we are making the right decisions. My main concern was, me being Iranian and my partner being Sikh meant two different wedding ceremonies on two different ways. I met with others but it they just presented me with items and prices. When I met LATIN ASIA – they didn’t only provide me with items, but various solutions to all my concerns – In a sense brought their knowledge and experience to give a sense of comfort. Today when I look back, I realize how picky I was being and how amazing LATIN ASIA was to take everything I asked and make it happen.
The day of the wedding had come and to say everything was perfect would be an understatement. Saku and her team had thought of every single thing – from the wind that day to the vases behind us that looked so beautiful in pictures. Saku and her team have a creative vision that I believe most people lack – they are quick to problem solve and always have a plan B. If I could do it all over again I would not change a single thing because it was my dream that LATIN ASIA made come to reality.
Meeting you and your husband was great pleasure and learning about your services LATIN ASIA was beyond tremendous. I was very impressed of the presentations of various resorts as well as the evening at El Dorado Royale on the deck overlooking the water. We definitely want to have partners such as yourself in Mexico that can truly create the dream experience for our couples.
We can not thank you enough. You went above and beyond our expectations! Each event and the details was beautifully executed. Everyone was raving about it. We would like to show our appreciation for all your hard work.
Thank you so much,
Casey & Pooja
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your hard work making all of my events were absolutely stunning!! I was blown away by each venue! My guests were also blown away, especially at the Garba with the umbrellas hanging from above.
Once I’ve settled back in I will add a review so please let me know where to add it.
Thank you so much for making my wedding so perfect!
I want to thank you for being part of my wedding.
You helped making my dream wedding a reality.
We appreciate all your time, effort and patience during the smooth process.
Jankee & Matt
I hope you have been well.
Thank you so much for all your information during our visit!
I can’t wait to work with you, I just know it will be an amazing experience!
As a bride, you were so informative on the venue difference, details, and limits in which you and your team are able to reach. This is great, as we understand that things can be more affordable in Mexico, but I was impressed at limits you are able to great. I was always under the impression that things were limited in terms or resources, but Cancun is very much feasible and ready for South Asian or rather, Latin Asian weddings, all we need is a bride and groom, everything else is already existing.
It was a pleasure to meet you!!
Your work is so gorgeous and I can`t wait to work with you.
But more than that, you are such a beautiful people.
Glad to have met you.
Saku & Masato
you and your team came through better than we expected. we really appreciate your professionalism with personal attention. It is great knowing you. we will definitely cross path again and work together whenever we get chance.
Manoj and Meenu Jalan
I wanted to thank you and your teams for creating the most perfect wedding for me and Mehul. I’ve heard from so many people that this was the most beautiful wedding they have been to in their lives!
I can’t get over the fact that everything went so smooth and perfectly. Everything you read about weddings in Mexico is that the vendors are late and throw everything off, etc. Your team did an amazing job of making sure everything was on time and made sure I didn’t have to worry.
As soon as I get the photos from Dean’s team, I’ll be sure to share them with you. Please let me know where I can write a review for your services.
Rupa & Mehul Patel
Sorry for the delayed email but I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to you and everyone at Latin Asia!
I wish I got the chance to meet you.
Everything was absolutely perfect! Even with the change of venue due to the weather, everything still turned out so amazing. Thank you for being so accommodating!
You were a pleasure to work with and I will recommend Latin Asian to anyone getting married in Cancun and Riviera Maya.
I hope you are well are ready for the holidays!
Awaiz and I had a fantastic time at our wedding!
We are so blessed to have an amazing team make our day so special.
I wanted to reach out to the LatinAsia team (I know this is not everyone), but we are so thankful for everything. Everything was beautiful and beyond all of our expectations. We were blown away at every event and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The LatinAsia team is so talented in every way and I want to thank you all for putting so much love and hard work in to our wedding.
I can’t wait to relive everything with photos and video. I will be sure to share. 🙂
You guys are AMAZING, thank you for everything.
Diaram & Adam
I would get married again, just to work with Saku again.
I wanted to thank you very much for all your hard work during our wedding. I loved all. Thank you very much for the beautiful set up and coordinating with us. I loved every minute of it.

It was wonderful to finally meet you in Mexico last week! Thank you again for everything that you did to help make Joti & Darren’s wedding so beautiful!
Planning an Indian destination wedding weekend from 1000 miles away and with a full-time job is no easy feat, but when you have amazing vendors, such as LatinAsia you’re in good hands. Saku and the entire team were one of the best groups I’ve ever worked with. I came into the process with a lot of different ideas and they helped me pull together my dreams while keeping within my budget. They were extremely transparent about their pricing and put no pressure on us to go beyond our budget (which is rare in this industry!) Throughout the planning process, Saku was extremely responsive as we had to go back and forth via email. I never once had to call her to follow up on anything. She was way ahead of the game! We met a few days before the wedding to finalize all for our Sangeet, Outdoor Wedding and Reception. She was extremely prepared and had everything under control. Everything came out amazing and as expected! There was nothing they had missed. If you are planning a wedding in Mexico, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND working with Latin Asia. They are extremely responsive, transparent, reliable and truly proffesionals at their work!
Thank you so much for everything,
Vanessa & Kishore
Thanks a lot for being such a wonderful sport and support all through the time that we were plannin the wedding. I knew ever since I first talked with you, I think, that you are a gem of a person. Natasha has always been seeking your expert opinion. And look with her ideas and your execution, you both did such a marvelous job!!! I just can’t wait to get all the professional pictures, but our regular pictures are not any less. They speak of perfection almost.
Thanks a lot for your wonderful cooperation, coordination and bringing up the alternatives for every small thing that we discussed during our long Skype sessions after Natasha came out of work…I think we have been frequent callers since January-just a bit short of Dai and Alejandra.
During events, I did not need to check on anything or did not hear of anything that went wrong with your efforts (thanks to your team if it did, it was never heard of by me).
I did not get to see you before leaving, but I will make an effort to meet you, if I ever come to Cancun again. All the best to your team for future progress…you are the best!
Thank you again for such an amazing job with all of our events.
Thank you for everything! I didn’t get to see you again this weekend! I appreciate all you did so much! I’ve already recommended you to everyone I know!
It was great meeting you and having you part of our wedding! Shivani and I were pleased with job you did, and couldn’t have asked for anything else. All of our guests were amazed by what you provided.
I’m happy you got to meet my friends Avni and Neil, I’m sure they will be in contact with you in the coming weeks/months. Hopefully I’m bump into when Shivani and I come down for the wedding in January.
I am back to LA. It was spectacular. I thank you so much for making my all the events wonderful. You did an amazing job. very busy at work will talk to you when I get chance.
My Husband and got married in Riviera Maya, Mexico. We had the wedding of a lifetime and unlike many other brides and grooms, were able to enjoy every minute of it. This was due to who we worked with. They made our lives incredibly easy throughout the process. Saku from Latin Asia, her husband, Masato and the entire staff of Latin Asia made our day so memorable for us. They were an absolute pleasure to work with. We spent a lot of time, having regular conversations with Saku during the planning process. She never said she couldn’t do anything for us. She was so personable, so accomodating and the outcome of all the work she did for us was EXACTLY what we were looking for. My husband and I are of east indian descent so we had several requests for her that were culturally related. She was able to fulfill ALL of our wishes and the results were impeccable! We cannot thank you enough, Saku!
