Real Wedding – Heartfelt Bohemian Ceremony In Mexico

Getting Married In Mexico 14

Bree & Erik   ♥   Puerto Penasco, Mexico

Photographer:   Ily Grantham

 

Not only did Bree and Erik’s destination wedding take place beside a beautiful beach in Mexico (not to mention how stunning Bree looked in her lace wedding dress…that she designed herself – how talented?!) but there’s a wonderfully warmhearted and thoughtful story behind the spot where they decided to tie the knot.

 

Being able to pick a truly unique wedding location can be one of the main reasons that brides and grooms decide to get married abroad. For this darling duo not only did a destination wedding feel right but getting hitched in Mexico enabled all of their close friends who live in Mexico to definitely be able to attend their nuptials.

 

A typical hotel wedding just didn’t fit the bill and so they set about making a brilliant one of a kind idea become a reality. I’ll let Bree the beautiful bride explain the full story behind their heartfelt bohemian ceremony in Mexico…

Getting Married Abroad

Laura & Ramin   ♥   Sayulita, Mexico

Photographer:   Dekker Photography

 

Mexico has long been topping the popularity charts for destination weddings and it’s not hard to see why; with a year-round tropical climate, sundrenched white beaches lapped by clear azure waters and an abundance of hotel and villa options combined with warm Mexican hospitality and delectable cuisine, this is one lovely locale.

 

Laura and Ramin decided to go off the beaten tourist path in Mexico for their destination wedding and tied the knot on the secluded sandy beach of sunny Sayulita – a charming fishing village situated on the west coast and famed for its surfing.

 

Traditional Mexican charisma is in abundance here and today’s couple ensured that their day represented the local culture with a wooden Mexican ‘La Boda’ wedding sign and ‘Novia’ and ‘Novio’ bride and groom seat signs and of course customary Mexican mariachi musicians sporting silver studded charro suits and sombreros to entertain their guests.

 

Your wedding guests will love it if you add some destination details to your day like Laura and Ramin did; getting married abroad is truly unique and by showcasing the lovely local style you will really give your wedding party a day to remember.

Real Wedding – A Lovely Day In Mexico

You Mean The World To Me

Kara & Carlos   ♥   Tulum, Mexico

If you were trying to dream up the perfect beachside destination wedding location, images like the ones from today’s real wedding would probably come to mind. Bleached white sand, rolling turquoise waves mirrored by the tropical sky with palm trees blowing in the ocean breeze as the sun smiles overhead.

 

Put simply, this blissful beach wedding is stunning. And not only that, so are the happy couple. From Kara’s timeless dress that she teamed with a Monique Lhuillier belt (it’s amazing and super sparkly and we so want one) to the special looks caught on camera between her and Carlos, this wedding is dazzling. Plus, they went all out on pretty personal touches and really made their destination day their own.

 

One of the songs that became a dance floor classic at Kara and Carlos’ wedding was Bill Withers ‘Lovely Day’ and we couldn’t imagine a song that could better sum up this magical Mexico wedding.

So get comfy, pop ‘Lovely Day’ on in the background and come join us in the relaxed Mexico mood we’ve been in since we first saw these beauties.

Kara says:

“Choosing Tulum as our destination was the perfect decision for Carlos and me. I had visited a few years prior to getting engaged and knew it would be idyllic for a wedding. The rustic charm, amazing food and gorgeous white-sand beaches had me sold immediately. Carlos and I visited Tulum together in June of 2012 to scout wedding venues and decided that spring was the best time of year to share this hidden gem with our friends. Now the real fun could begin.”

“It took us nine months to get 100 of our closest friends and family members booked and ready to go. We wanted to make sure everyone had time to explore Tulum and discover things on their own, but also give our guests some guidance on where to go and what to see. Destination Weddings Tulum helped us arrange airport transportation, hotels, a snorkeling excursion, family dinners, cocktail hours, rehearsal dinner as well as the big event.”

“For the wedding day décor we really wanted to just enhance the perfect rustic beauty of Tulum at La Zebra. Clean white linens and flowers in mason jars along with rustic burlap runners were the basis for our theme. We added pops of blues to enhance the already perfect blue skies and oceans of Tulum. Lighting was also very important to us given the party after dinner was held directly on the beach. We added tons of string lights above the dance-floor and above the beautiful white lounges that were set up on the beach. We also had candles all over the tables and dance-floor to add to the natural light. ”
