36 Couples Will Partake In Once In A Lifetime Unique Wedding Experience - August 9, 2011 – San Pedro, Belize –December 2012 will mark the end of the 5,126 year era of the Mayan Calendar and is a time of renewal, rebirth, renaissance and new beginnings. In honor of this historic and spiritual moment, thirty-six adventurous, fortunate and spiritually motivated couples along with 218 of their closest friends and family will partake in an exclusive and unique Mayan Marriage of Many wedding celebration (staged on an ancient Maya Temple at the 3200 year old Mayan City of Cahal Pech) on December 12, 2012. At the same time, in five other exotic resort locations in Ambergris Caye, five additional couples will each hold their own separate full court fairytale wedding nuptials event.
“There is no place in the world like Belize,” according to Lara Goldman (a Philadelphia-native who moved to San Pedro, Belize over five years ago), a destination management consultant, and owner and founder of 12 Productions Belize. “As the home of the Western Hemisphere’s largest barrier reef and majestic mountains dotted with Maya sites, the English speaking country of Belize is uniquely positioned to become the authentic culturally rich destination wedding location for those looking to celebrate their love and good fortune in a truly epic way,” explains Goldman “This romantic and tropical destination event is a once in a lifetime experience in paradise for the 36 bridal couples and their lucky guests. And, since this is the only place in the Yucatan where you can get married on the Maya Temple itself (dating back to 1200 BC), guests are really going to get something extraordinarily different,” Goldman adds.
The 10-day event begins as soon as guests disembark in Belize International. “They will be transported both literally and figuratively to an experience that will awake all five senses with centuries old Mayan recipes, dancing, music and art of this fascinating ancient culture,” describes Goldman. “The brides and grooms will enjoy a cocktail reception at the Cahal Pech Maya Museum, a welcome breakfast, a Maya themed rehearsal dinner with entertainment galore, and the Maya Marriage of Many Wedding Event on 12.12.12,” Goldman says.
Brides, grooms and guests will be able to enjoy the exciting choice of activities Belize has to offer including zip lining, Maya massage and other healing arts medicine trails with Maya shaman, horseback riding, Caracol and other Maya site exploration, bird watching, kayaking, cave tubing, exploring ancient caves with human remains, museums, botanical gardens, a world class zoo (amazing!), repelling, spelunking, scuba diving, snorkeling, helicopter tours, mountain biking, yoga and more.
“Each couple will be able to invite 6 of their closet loved ones to witness the marriage and enjoy the celebration from December 9-13, 2012,” explains Goldman. “This is an event and time couples and guests will never forget,” Goldman adds.
Package for the group weddings in Cahal Pech range from $14,030 to $24,030 for the Bridal Couple (depending on their chosen hotel and other add-on options) and includes a 5-night Mini-Moon, all receptions, day tours, etc. Packages for guest couples start at $5,030 for December 9-13, with custom mini-cations also available.
