Ava and Patryk’s story is a long one, but one thing they were both absolutely positive on was their love of the beach. Their relationship began in Vancouver, British Columbia, and after a few years of dating, they became engaged from a gorgeous proposal on the beach in Thailand. It was only fitting that they planned their wedding at the gorgeous Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa in Tulum, Mexico. Every little detail was fitting. It was when they booked the venue that they knew they wanted to have only their closest friends and family attend, and that is exactly what they had accomplished.
While many details from the wedding day were thought of and prepped in Vancouver, another large portion were also handled directly in Tulum with the help of the coordination from Dreams Resorts. Hiring Kyle Goldie from Luma Weddings for the destination wedding photography was hugely important in order to capture the day’s festivities, details, and emotions thoroughly. He came all the way from Seattle!
Planning a destination wedding in Tulum had its hurdles and obstacles – especially when it came to trying to figure out group rates, resort credits, and getting everything to the site safely – but when it was all set up and the day started to flow, it was all worth it. The wedding day itself began with a hearty breakfast, some mimosas, and hair and makeup provided directly by the resort itself. The spa was incredibly comfortable and charming. Everybody was incredibly helpful.
While hair and makeup was being completed, Kyle Goldie at Luma Weddings was capturing detail photographs and the groomsmen were helping prepare for the day. The planning and preparation were all coming together. The wedding day details were clean, romantic, simplistic, pastel, and earthy. Nothing was overdone, yet no detail was overlooked. The goal was to keep things natural, beautiful, and airy. Everything was meant to pair well with the tropical atmosphere that Dreams Tulum had to offer. By being surrounded with palm trees and a gorgeous ocean backdrop, all that was left was to create some gorgeous photographs and time everything to the sunset.
Ava and Patryk said “I do” with their feet in the sand, followed by an intimate reception poolside along the beach. Their weather could not have been more perfect.
