We are Shannon & Glen, and together we are Riviera Reflections Weddings and Events.
Our adventure started just over 8 years ago when we decided that we wanted to be a part of making couples happy. So, with certificates and diplomas in hand, we set out on this journey. Our first wedding was very exciting and once the day was over and the wedding couple were beyond happy we knew we had found our calling. When we started in Alberta we had no idea our passion would take us to the Riviera Maya, Mexico.
We have been in Mexico for almost 3 years. Living in Mexico gives us the opportunity to personally visit some of the most beautiful venues and off-site locations that Mexico has to offer for a destination wedding or special event. We truly are local and love sharing our beautiful new home Country with visitors.
Since both of our families live in Canada we try and spend at least 3 months of the summer with them all, for us, it is off-season so it works. It also allows us to offer our planning services for a gorgeous Canadian Rocky Mountains wedding or event. We have had the privilege of providing most of our previous couples with weddings in the Mountains so we are very familiar with the hotels and special locations. Recently we just toured two brand new venues and we fell in love all over again with the area. Glen and I were actually married in Banff.
"I fell in Love with Mexico for a dog, not a Man!"
I was born in the UK and studied Events and Catering Management there for 4 years. I fell in love with Mexico and moved here 20 years ago.
I have worked Weddings and Events since my days in college. My passion for planning, a strong eye for detail, and customer service has lead me down an amazing and varied career path; I have worked open golf events, Chelse Flowers show, I have been the Wedding Manager in a 4-star 500 room hotel hosting weddings daily, a wedding designer, and group events planner and now I am a Wedding and Events Planner with Riviera Reflections.
Living in Mexico gives me the advantage of knowing all the hotels, private locations, and different vendors available. This knowledge and experience means that I can help create your perfect wedding or event.
I am South Asian Wedding Qualified and have been the Wedding Planner for 6 Hindu weddings in Mexico.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Riviera Reflections team.
