From Figlewicz PhotographerWe first met Jessie and Sean on the beach at Terranea to photograph them getting engaged. I know I have said this before, but we LOVE shooting proposals! We LOVE being there for that first moment. We LOVE hiding in the bushes and we LOVE that look the girl gives her man! It’s so candid and real. By the time the wedding rolls around we feel very connected to their story. Sean and Jessie are so special to us! They are a beautiful couple and they love each other so much. We were thrilled when they asked us to fly to Puerto Vallarta for their wedding. We went a few days before the wedding and we had a blast. We got to know everyone and enjoyed watching this family love each other.

They chose Villa Romance for their wedding venue. All their guests were so excited to finally see this secret location. It was perfect… private beach covered in shells, aqua pool, and a fantastic view! Everyone was in heaven! Jessie is a nanny and all her kids flew down to be in the wedding. The whole team from Dazzling Details did an amazing job at making all the kids feel very welcome. They even had a playhouse filled with toys!

Tropical Cabo San Lucas Beach Wedding

When the getting ready shots include a Bride sporting sparkly earrings once worn by Marilyn Monroe as her ‘something old’, you know the wedding that follows is going to be fabulous as ever. Set that wedding in a gorgeous designation like Cabo San Lucas, put Sweet Pea Events behind the planning and sprinkle it with coral and turquoise, and it reaches a whole new level. Sara & Rocky Photography tagged along for all the fun and thanks to them, you can too.

From the beautiful Bride…This intimate wedding in Cabo with 30 guests was all about family & friends. Most of the guests stayed at the venue, Villa Turquesa, and it was a week-long celebration overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The groom is a hockey player for the St. Louis Blues and the bride is a sweet southern belle from Dallas.

-The bride’s earrings were worn by Marilyn Monroe, and were a gift from the bride’s father and step-mom as her “something old”.

-The groom’s daughter, Layna, made the bride the blue heart you see in the photos – that was her “something blue”.

- Seashells were used as twist on the traditional boutonniere.

- The seahorse was one of our main design elements and subtly incorporated through the décor.

-All of the linens and pillows were hand-sewn and custom-made just for this wedding.

A Mini Guide to Isla de Mujeres, Mexico

If you could create the perfect romantic getaway, it would probably include a beach location, authentic cultural cuisine, and a variety of different activities. I don’t think you could ask for too much more, except maybe a really good margarita when you arrive. This little island right off the coast of Cancun has all of that and more captured by Ariana B Photography. Together with and her fiancé , they’re dishing their tips for a getaway to Isla de Mujeres.

A MINI-GUIDE TO ISLA DE MUJERES

Places to Stay | All Inclusive Mia Reef Resort – walking distance to all the restaurants, bar and night life and private. Make sure to upgrade to an ocean view condo. For honeymoon type of stay and very secluded stay try, Casa De Los Suenos on the north part of the island is a boutique lodging with great restaurant, life music and amazing pool.

Places to Shop | The great part about Mexico, especially Isla Mujeres is that there is no need to go to actual stores, during your dining break or beach time people will try to sell you all kinds of handmade nick-nack’s, the same items you will find in a store but for much cheaper price. The island also boasts a great Caribbean vibe in the downtown area, perfect for an afternoon wander through the stores.

Places to Eat | For a great live music, ocean view and send between your toes kind of dining try Bahia Tortuga Restaurant, the bar is very reasonable for any wallet. For a bit more high end and amazing hand crafted drinks I recommend, Casa De Los Suenos Restaurant,  which ocean view and music as well. Mix it up with city dining at Oscar’s Mexican Grill

Things to Do | Even tho Isla Mujeres is a tiny island, it has plenty of activities from swimming with dolphins and sharks, to under water sculpture gardens or exploring old ruins. Don’t forget, the best way to go around the island is in a golf cart!

Must Visit | Head back to the main land to see Tortuga Playa, where you can hold baby turtles, start fish, crabs, sea Urchin for only $3. During summer months you can snorkel with giant Whale Sharks which migrate to the warm waters by Isla Mujeres. Playa Norte, is the best beach on the island with amazing snorkeling opportunities. For those that love to snorkel, MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) is an underwater sculpture garden by Jaime Gonzalez Cano – a one of a kind experience not to be missed.
