You don’t have to set your Mayan themed wedding with a beach backdrop. Select a hacienda inspired location. A great alternative would be The Bell Tower on 34th Street. The bright LED lit stone water wall area would be a delicious option. The draping of the papel picado banners would work beautifully here. There’s so many possibilities to incorporate modern touches into a Mayan themed wedding setup.
