Lani and Larry: Altun Ha Elopment

Belize City

Who is up for an adventure? Lani and Larry wanted something out of the ordinary, and truly unique for their elopement. They opted for a quiet hotel, just outside of Belize City on the river. The morning of the wedding, Lani was pampered with a professional hair and makeup artist and her planner was on-hand for anything she might have needed.


After both the bride and groom were ready, they did a first look on a balcony overlooking the Belize River. A few shots later, the crew was ready to depart.


Altun Ha is a beautiful ruin, located just outside Belize City. Guests have the unique privilege of obtaining a marriage license, that allows them to get married on-top of the ruins! The couple took advantage of this unique location, and had Signature Belize arrange the rest.


After a personalized ceremony, the couple enjoyed a photoshoot with Leonardo Melendez. His eye and creativity are incomparable, and the shots are beyond amazing. Lani was such a natural, and the photos are among our favorites.


Once the couple returned back to the hotel, they enjoyed a private dinner with cake cutting and champagne toasting right after sunset.
