Nandini & Virag, Mayakoba Banyan Tree

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 the vendors we worked with. 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. She was so personable, so accommodating and the outcome of all the work she did for us was EXACTLY what we were looking for. She was able to fulfill ALL of our wishes and the results were impeccable! We can not thank you enough, Saku!. We recommend her to anyone that is thinking of getting married in the Playa Del Carmen area. It is not worth going elsewhere

Melissa Dablo Millice, Cancun, The Royal Cancun

Saku!!! Thank you so much for making our wedding so beautiful. The bouquets were exquisite, the centerpieces were gorgeous, and the church looked incredible. We could not have been happier. Thank you for your attention to detail, and for listening and understanding my “vision”. It was EXACTLY what I had in mind. There are certain things that are fuzzy during your wedding, but there are two …things that I clearly remember. I remember hugging you when the flowers arrived because they were PERFECT and I remember taking pictures on the beach and being so in love with the flowers and the colors. Thank you Saku! We’ll keep you posted on my sister’s wedding and I’ll definitely recommend you to any other destination wedding brides!

Elaine Alexander, Mayakoba, Banyan Tree

I worked with Saku from Latin Asia to create four distinct floral design concepts. Beach wedding (rustic, natural, and ethereal), Mexican Fiesta (bold and colorful), wedding reception (tropical, elegant and magical) and a casual picnic supper (fresh and colorful, using citrus with flowers). Saku’s knowledge is broad; her communication skills are thorough and complete, her attention to detail is impeccable, and her designs and execution flawless. I can’t say enough about this incredibly kind, thoughtful and talented designer. She made suggestions on how to achieve a better “bang for my buck”. I highly recommend her, and would use her again without hesitation!

Everyone that has seen the first 28 photos you sent us, have said that they are the nicest wedding photos they have ever seen and that includes other destination wedding photos. Hiring you Dean, and Saku were the two best decisions Mark and I made. So thank you so much again. Lisa

“Everything was incredible! Althought we hadn’t met in person before and all was by e-mail, it was wonderful. It ‘s because Saku always listened to me and was really quick to respond to my doubts and questions. I’m so happy with my wedding, everything about the flowers was a success and I’m still thinking that my bouquet was the most beautiful I have ever seen. Saku, thank you so much it was stunning, I never thought that it would be that gorgeous, it was like from a fairytale.Thank you so much for everything, and I recommend you a 100% because of your patience, your time, effort and also because the flowers you use are the most beautiful ones Thanks Saku!”.

Jennifer Gonzalez, Riviera Maya, Hacienda Tres Rios

“Choosing to work with Saku at Latin Asia was one of the best decisions I made while planning our wedding. I highly recommend her services. I loved all her work from my rehearsal dinner centerpieces, to the bouquets, the ceremony flowers, and the amazing reception centerpieces. I absolutely loved the centerpieces; they were even more beautiful in person.

Wow! From the very beginning, Saku was easy to work with. She was quick to respond to my emails. Her first email explained the entire process. She provided catalogs with several choices, examples, and prices. I truly appreciate knowing what to expect right from the get go. Saku was always very good at making sure to answer all of my questions in each email. And I ask a lot of questions! She also helped me figure out which flowers to choose considering flowers in season and my wedding colors.

Her prices are very competitive. In fact, I went to a local florist to see one of the flowers she recommended in person and my local florist said I was getting really good prices, that he wouldn’t be able to charge those prices if I was getting married in town. I sent Saku some pictures from magazines of flowers I liked, but I couldn’t identify them. She identified them, provided pricing, and then suggested more affordable options that looked very similar. Saku was very helpful and gave me great suggestions.

I really like the way she does her order summary; the invoice has pictures of the flowers/arrangements right on the invoice so you know exactly what you are getting. This is fantastic because despite not being able to actually see what you are ordering in person, you have a really good idea of what it will look like and the price per unit, not just some big lump sum. Beautiful flowers can make a huge difference at a wedding. I am so happy with all of Saku’s work plus it was a pleasure working with her. Thank you again!”

Danielle & Spencer, Cancun, Riviera Maya, BanyanTree, Mayakoba

Did you enjoy the most important day of your new life!!! No matter the weather?

I absolutely did! Once the planning got started i definitely had my doubts about how everything would turn out being that it was a destination wedding and i would be planning the majority of things from home. I was nervous that items would get lost in translation and ideas would not turn out as we discussed since i wasnt physically there to oversee it. As time went on Saku kept in contact with me suggesting her ideas (which i loved) and make the process much easier. She listened to me as i explained my ideas as i dont think some of the hotel staff did as well as her. She would take my ideas and combine it with her past experience and make it an even better idea.

You exceeded my needs with your decor I think you were wonderful in following up, as soon as we made a change on the propsal you revised it and sent it back in a very timely manner.

Did you liked your flower décor?

Not like loved, I can honestly say it is exactly what i asked for.

Did you received your personal flowers directly to your room on time?

Not only did I personally recieve them in time and by Saku herself, she went beyond and surprised me by including flowers that she knew i secretly wanted but were out of my budget.

Did you received your flower decoration as you want it or perhaps more?

Absolutely

Are you satisfied with all information, guidance and overall services from us?

Very much

Would you recommend our services to other brides?

I would recommend you and your team, I would be happy to be a referal if you ever needed one. Thank you for helping make my wedding beautiful!

Dawn Barnard, Riviera Maya, Hacienda Tres Rios

Hello Saku! Thank you! The flowers were amazing and exceeded every expectation that I had.

Was it a good choice to have a destination wedding in Cancun and the Riviera Maya?

Yes! We loved every aspect, even the rain. The entire weekend turned out perfect!

We basically planned everything by e mail, right?

Yes, everything! So during this process did I assist you answering all your questions and needs? How did you feel during the entire planning process with my e mails? You certainly answered all of my questions and needs. To be honest, the flowers were my biggest fear coming in to the actual wedding. Just because a bride picking out her flowers via email only is scary! The picture examples that you had for me were not necessarily my taste, so that made me nervous. But, you always answered my questions back with another photo or explanation. Even when I wanted other types of flowers..you were sure to keep me on the budget that I had. And the flowers ended up going above and beyond my expectations!

Did we reach all your needs or perhaps more?

Yes! More that my needs….the cake flowers were beautiful and so were the arrangements at the reception…they would have been more beautiful at the outside reception, but even changing venues did not take away from the beauty and simplicity of the arrangements! They were so perfect! I cried when I saw my bouquet and my maid of honors bouquets…I still cry when I look at the pictures, especially my MOH bouquets! They turned our amazing! I also cried a little when I had to leave my bouquet behind in Mexico…I would have loved to have taken it home with me! My flowers pleased me more than any of my other vendors that day….and as you know I worried about them!

Did you received all information detailed during the planning process from us?

Yes

Did you enjoy the most important day of your new life!!! No matter the weather?

Yes, although the weather was a bummer, we were still able to get married outside. I am sad that I didn’t get to have the reception outside, but the Italian restaurant was perfect and the flowers still looked great inside! (Although I think we didn’t get the votives around the arrangements, but I didn’t notice at the time).

Did you liked your flower décor?YES!!!

Did you received your personal flowers directly to your room on time?Yes…I didn’t know when they were coming, but they came right on time…

Did you received your flower decoration as you want it or perhaps more?Yes, it was fabulous…I wish we had more little votives around the center peice, but to be honest, I only noticed this in pictures after the fact….they were absolutely perfect!

Are you satisfied with all information, guidance and overall services from us?Yes

Absolutely! In a heartbeat!

Sandra Facchi, Riviera Maya, Banyan Tree, Mayakoba

Thank You Saku and Latin Asia staff for making our wedding day so memorable!

I had this “bouquet of my dreams” in mind (an amazing huge cascading bouquet of white phanaelopsis orchids) and Latin Asia Flowers really understood my request and exceeded my expectations!!!! I got so many compliments about my bouquet!

Latin Asia ordered my flowers with months of advance and they even grow this as a special order for me!!!! I still get comments on face book asking me to send pictures so they can copy my bouquet!

I STRONGLY recommend this florist, especially for someone who wants to have the most beautiful bouquet in the world(like me, and I did!). I am very esthetic oriented and I can say that the floral arrangements by Latin Asia Flowers were the MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS I could ever imagine for my wedding.

The flowers were fresh and vibrant and the arrangements where amazing! Latin Asia florists provide the BEST quality flowers and their service is just over-the-top wonderful. Their staff was kind and efficient from the time I requested the first quote until to the set up on my wedding day, always showing extreme attention to detail and professionalism. Also, the flowers that I wanted ( orchids) can be very expensive but Sakurako –the owner- was very mindful about my budget since she is REALLY knowledgeable about the different types of flowers. She mixed Asian elements (such as palms and leaves) and work with these orchids and make the most beautiful arrangements at very competitive prices. Latin Asia Flowers was able to supply me with everything I needed (bouquets, boutonnieres, ceremony gazebo, flower centerpieces, best wishes tree, reception flower arrangements and even a customized flower girl basket!) They also put together more than 40 beautifully arranged welcome baskets for my destination wedding guests…and I received a lot of compliments because my guests loved the original and creative welcome baskets

Sami and Sara, Riviera Maya, Banyan Tree, Mayakoba

Thanks so much Sakurako. You guys did an outstanding job -Sara and I could not had been more pleased. I noticed that your husband took some pics (or I am hoping video) of the wedding. Could he share the pictures / video with us? We are trying to collate them from everyone to come up with a collection. I thought I would share with you the slideshow of our wedding.

http://www.danielaguilarblog.com/slides/sarasam2/

Hope you enjoy them. They take us right back to the memories of the day.

Valarie Castro, Riviera Maya, Hacienda Tres Rios

Thank you Saku for all you help. We highly recommend for weddings and all occasion! We got married on the beach at Hacienda Tres Rios in Quintana Roo. My bridal bouquet, flower girl bouquet, wrist corsage and boutonnaire were beautiful! Orange roses and orchids… we are live in New York. Best wishes Valarie and Richard

Courtney Pham, Moon Palace

A big THANK YOU to Saku and her creative team for such a professional and artistic approach in presenting the flowers for my sister’s wedding at Moon Palace. Saku was very knowledgeable and experienced in creating the medallions/centerpieces/corsages/bouquet exactly the way my sister wanted them. My sister only wanted roses and orchids in three colors — and I mean she was very parti …cular about certain things! Saku was very patient and helpful in guiding us through choices that were both beautiful and economical. And the best part: this was being done ONLY THREE WEEKS before the wedding. (Yes, my fault because the flowers were a gift from me to my sister, and I had no idea you had to decide so long in advance.) Saku and her team delivered!!!! On the day of the wedding: Saku paid special attention to the little details such as the extra orchids for the bride … just in case. She was also very generous as to go out of her way to provide the glass containers for the centerpieces with no extra charges. It was a pleasant surprise as I had expected the containers to be wrapped in leaves just as discussed in earlier correspondences. After setting up, she sprayed the flowers with water to help them stayed fresh longer. Everyone raved about the quality and beauty of the flowers at the reception. After the wedding: I took one of the centerpieces back to my room. They bloomed and continued to last after the wedding. They were still fresh the day I left Cancun (a week later). It was unfortunate that I could not take them with me stateside. That was how beautiful they still were in their container. Thank you again for everything. I’ll be sure to share this experience with my marketing class — especially about customer service.

Adriana Schack, Omni Cancun

Saku did such a great job with our wedding flowers, she is very professional and our arrangements were gorgeous. She worked within our budget and was great from start to finish. Muchas gracias!

Susanne Gonzalez Gallardo, Riviera Maya, Fairmont Mayakoba

I got married on Feb 26th in Mayakoba fairmont in playa del Carmen and planned the whole wedding from Chicago. Sakurako was incredibly helpful through the whole process, she would email me photos of my centerpiece ideas and examples of what she’s done in the past. The flower planning was very easy and my flowers came out beautiful- I couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended.

The top caterers, stylists, wedding planners, boutiques, restaurants and entire hotels chains in Cancun and the Riviera Maya use us train their staff in décor. Just imagine what we can do for you!

Our Story

I was studying Mathematics when I discovered my passion for floral design when I was introduced to IKEBANA, the ancient Japanese art of flower arrangement. It changed the course of my life. I found floral design to be so deep, so rich, and so endless that it became my life.

My passion for science blossomed into an obsession with flowers. I went on to earn a Master’s degree in IKEBANA in addition to Bachelors in Mathematics.

My husband and I fell in love with Cancun so we decided to move here. Soon after we settled, Hurricane Wilma struck. We lost nearly everything and even though we were strangers here, a local family took us in. They gave us food, shelter and hope. The father encouraged us to not give up, “The worst is over,” he said, “If you stay, things can only get better.” And they did.

Wilma destroyed great parts of Cancun’s hotel infrastructure. Many jobs were lost and people started to panic. Many gave up and left, thinking it was all over. But to us it was just the beginning.

Our neighbors helped us restore our small town house. They smiled as they helped us clear out the dirt, water and tree branches. The good people of Cancun helped us and gave us hope.

Years have passed since then but still we wake up remembering it is time to give back. We want to make Cancun and Riviera Maya even more beautiful and wonderful so today we do that thought our wedding décor and floral design.

What make us Unique

As a destination couple is pretty easy to feel overwhelmed by all decisions you are facing and bringing the right wedding providers on board. I want to make the process easy for you by highlighting what truly makes us different. If trust and commitment to services is what you are looking for, then I invite you to explore our services.
Myself having a Master degree in floral art and an obsession to organize all surrounding me, I created a simple and clear process to help couples identify their concept and style.

  • I have created an organized process to pull all the décor pieces together including furniture, accessories and flowers.
  • I researched ways to get things non available in Cancun, and found ways where couples could ship to my atelier and store things they want to bring from their cities without spending a fortune on shipping.
  • I improved follow up systems so that couples feel relaxed instead of frustrated about what the process is all about.

So today, we offer all wedding décor elements with a stress free planning process were couples can enjoy from beggining to end without feeling overwhelmed.

Booking US

“How is the entire process? ”

1.-The process is simple and starts with listening more about you and your vision. We start with an e mail and if you wish we can set a skype call to go more in detail, so I understand better what you envision for your unique wedding . Our lightining fast response, attention to detail and most of all fabulous accurate information with personal service will let us both put together all what you envision for your wedding day..
Secrets

Important points for creating your fabulous wedding experience are:

  • color palate and style preferences.
  • exact date to see availability of booking and availability on seasonal flowers.
  • hotel name to see internal logistics for setting up so I can recommend you what works and what does not works.
  • estimated guest count
  • design desired so we can calculate amount materials and labour
  • number of days of your entire wedding experience
  • estimated budget

2.-Then, I will create a master file containing all the information, photo, description, quantity, unit price, subtotal, delivery, set up and pick up rental items fee, payment etc. all in one single file so you can visualize your entire wedding décor.

You can block our services with 50% deposit. This is applied to your total bill.

3.-You can make as many adjustments as you need after that. Two weeks prior your wedding day balance must be paid in full so it let us secure total items required to be paid (such as fresh flowers from farmers and producers) within the amounts and quality needed.

From the beggining of the process every email, phone call and every little detail will be taken care by me and my working team.

If you want to block your date with us, or want to know more,
