Riviera Maya, Mexico (July 26, 2023) — Grand Velas Riviera Maya, the AAA Five Diamond luxury all-inclusive resort located on Mexico's Caribbean coast, takes wedding celebrations to the next level with the introduction of personalized dance floors. Designed exclusively for couples' dream wedding receptions, each dance floor is hand painted by Mexican artist Karla Kapell.
Couples will work with Kapell, an Acapulco-born artist, to transform their wedding venue with a unique dance floor that reflects their love story and personalities. With over 50 artistic creations under her belt, including murals, canvases, clothing, and now dance floors, Kapell is passionate about enhancing spaces and experiences with her art. Themes for the dance floors range from abstract designs inspired by the sea or sky, to lush floral and vegetative motifs, traditional Mexican patterns, and intricate mandalas. Kapell utilizes her favorite technique of using outlines and interior lines to create compositions with significant movement. From design to execution, the process typically spans three to five weeks, allowing couples to collaborate with the artist to ensure their satisfaction with the final product. The dance floors are painted with vinyl or acrylic paint and a protective layer of wood varnish is applied to guarantee durability throughout the night of celebration.
Grand Velas Riviera Maya continues to set the standard in the luxury all-inclusive market with this innovative offering. This new service will provide an extraordinary visual and cultural touch to the resort's wedding experience, enhancing the venue's beauty and creating stunning photo opportunities for the wedding party. Prices for this offering start from $1,300 USD for a size of 4.88 feet x 4.88 feet.
