1st Green Wedding Expo Spotlights Mexican Eco-Resort

Riviera Maya, Mexico (PRWEB) June 21, 2007 - To help drive the green craze from trend to lifestyle, the Haute Wedding Event welcomes eco-conscious brides-to-be and their grooms to the Bentley Reserve in San Francisco on March 9 -10, 2008. Dubbed as the first wedding event that is green and carbon-neutral, Paraiso de la Bonita Resort, a hotel in the World Heritage-rich Yucatan Peninsula, is the top-ticket honeymoon prize for the event's Green Silent Auction. Sponsored by, the exclusive magazine for eco-savvy brides & grooms, and NativeEnergy, who will provide the carbon offsets for the event, the Haute Wedding Event will highlight eco-chic honeymoon fashions, environmentally-friendly flower arrangements and natural spa facials.

Paraiso de la Bonita Will Provide an Eco-Friendly Honeymoon to Lucky Couple

To benefit the World Wildlife Fund, ten eco-luxe prizes will be auctioned during the Green Silent Auction. As the crowning honeymoon prize, guests will enjoy 5 days / 4 nights at Paraiso de la Bonita in a carbon-neutral honeymoon suite, offset by The Leading Hotels of the World's Leading Green Initiative. Supporting responsible travel, Leading Hotels is making a financial commitment to offset guests' "carbon footprint" during their stay at any Leading Hotel. At Paraiso de la Bonita, the winning couple will experience a traditional Mayan Wedding Ceremony, a spiritual celebration which puts the bride and groom in contact with nature and the four elements - fire, water, air and earth. The four elements represent union and commitment between couple and the Universe. As the Priestess carries out the cleansing ritual, bride and groom share fruit, wine, a flower crown and love promises. Paraiso de la Bonita is a member of the World Heritage Alliance, formed jointly by Expedia® and the UN Foundation, promoting sustainable tourism and awareness of World Heritage sites and communities worldwide.

At the Haute Wedding Event, brides will also learn how to style local and seasonal flowers from celebrity event designer Eden Rodriguez, who styled eco-activist Alicia Silverstone's lake-side wedding. Think vintage objects with flowers like mason jars set a glow with soy candles. Danna Weiss, eco-chic stylist to Heidi Klum and Molly Sims, will demonstrate how the hottest honeymoon looks can be improvised with nothing more than a yard of bamboo-blend fabric. At the Green Apple Beauty Bar by Juice Beauty, fresh fruit facials made from apples, pomegranates or oranges will give brides a natural glow.

Created by owner, Carlos Gosselin, in homage to his wife, Elisa Gosselin, Paraiso de la Bonita (Paradise of the Beautiful) lies beachfront amidst 14 acres leading into the Caribbean Sea. The AAA Five Diamond property, which is well known for its dramatic architecture and striking use of color, features ninety ocean view suites, approximately 1,130 square feet in size, with large, private outdoor terraces (some with plunge pools); living rooms; and marble bathrooms with sunken bathtubs for two . Each of the suites is individually decorated with unusual fabrics, sculpture and antique treasures sourced by Carlos and Elisa during their travels to the Mediterranean, India, Africa, Bali, China and the Caribbean. Suites are named after geographic locations such as: Antigua, Jaipur, KwaZulu and Marbella and feature Bulgari amenities and an in-suite Tequila service.

The Thalasso Center Spa features the only certified Thalassotherapy Spa in North America, and offers a warm water hydrotherapy pool, outdoor aqua gym, fitness center, beauty salon, daily Pilates and Yoga and 'Temazcal', a Mayan-inspired sauna. 'La Canoa' restaurant offers fine dining. Afternoon tea with home baked pastries and 'Madeleines' is served daily at the 'Birds Lounge' as a complimentary treat for guests and the resort provides a never-ending supply of gourmet 'Iced Tea of the Day' with a new flavor for every day of the week. The second largest reef in the world is located directly in front of the property, offering guests world-class snorkeling and scuba opportunities.

Paraiso is only 20 minutes from Cancun International Airport by the property's own fleet of air conditioned, White Lincoln Navigators, with chilled towels, iced water and individual CD menu. Cancun and Playa del Carmen are 30 minutes by road in either direction.
