About Papillon Weddings


Papillon means butterfly in French. The Butterfly is a symbol of change, joy and love. In China, it symbolizes conjugal bliss and joy. For Early Christians, it represented the soul itself. North American Indians call upon the butterfly for guidance in change, color, and happiness. And of course, Butterfly in English and Papillon in French are both used to describe that feeling in our stomachs on the big day! All these images came together for me when I created Papillon Weddings.

In 1998, after graduating from the world renowned Lausanne Hotel Management School and working for 3 years as Group and Conference Planner with the Montreux Palace, at Lake Geneva, I set out to leave my native Switzerland and find the perfect place to work and live. I began my search working in hotels in the Dominican Republic, the French and British Caribbean Islands, Costa Rica and then finally in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, where I am happy to say I found the perfect place I always dreamed about.

My wish is to provide the most exclusive wedding ceremonies in the most special venues that you can dream of. My aim throughout is quality, originality, and tailor-made planning to create a wedding that the two of you can cherish forever. All the details will be arranged by Papillon Weddings. All you need to do is pack your bags! Everything else will be taken care of with total attention to detail and with the utmost precision.
