Destination Mexico Wedding at Generations Riviera Maya

I treat gorgeous destination weddings like this one from Fondly Forever Photography like a little virtual vacation. I allow myself a little extra time to really get lost in all the lovely images and devour every pretty detail. Before I know it, I feel like I am there, with my toes in the sand listening to these two cuties say I do, and you can join me in the day dream right here.

From Fondly Forever PhotographyJeannie + Neal live in LA but wanted a destination wedding to celebration their big day. After touring around the east coast of Mexico, they decided on a brand new hotel in Riviera Maya called Generations. Jeannie is a makeup artist and not only did her makeup, but all of her bridesmaids makeup as well! She is one of the sweetest people I know and her smile radiated the entire day! The wedding ceremony took place in a small chapel right off the beach and the reception was in a pier over the water. I realize this wedding does not have as many details as some of the weddings you feature but I thought it might be a good fit for your destination blog.

From the Bride…What was your inspiration for the day/How did you make the day about the two of you?

– We wanted to have a simple, light-hearted, stress-free day surrounded by family and friends. At our ceremony, we wanted all our guests to be present with us and not worry about taking photos, so we decided to have an unplugged wedding. It was one of the best decisions we made. Everyone was in the moment with us and we felt so much love in the room. We wanted our vows to be meaningful, but I also knew that if we surprised each other with our own vows at the altar, I would cry and not be able to say my part. So in order to ease my nervousness, Neal and I decided to write our vows together and take turns saying each line to each other. I love that we started our marriage as a team.

What is your most memorable moment from the day?
– Looking out and seeing our closest friends and family all under one roof. Over the years, we’ve hung out with them individually and in small groups, but never all together in one place. That moment comes once in a lifetime and it made our hearts happy knowing that they all traveled there to celebrate with us.

- What DIY projects did you do for your wedding?
I wanted to stay away from DIY (aka stress) projects as much as possible, so I limited the DIY project to 1. We made our own fabric bouquets/boutonnieres from scratch. It was a long process filled with good times, laughter, and love – all my bridesmaids and my Man of Honor worked so hard on them, I’m so grateful.

From The Bride…Our “Weekend del Amor” was incredible! We chose Mexico because of it’s jungles and beaches, food and people, and Maroma because of it’s beauty and soul. 44 of our closest friends and family stayed the weekend to relax on the beach and celebrate our love. Friday night we hosted a welcome fiesta for all of our guests, but beforehand the hotel had a surprise: releasing baby sea turtles back in to the wild. This was an incredible and moving experience. Saturday was the wedding at sunset- we had a Mayan ceremony-mariachi band at cocktail hour and dancing and dining under the stars. At a certain point it began to rain so we all went indoors to continue the dance party.

Destination Wedding at Dreams Los Cabos

Escaping to tropical paradise with the one you love is as good as it gets. Unless, of course, it involves a wedding celebration with all your dearest friends and family at Dreams Los Cabos. Then it’s EVEN better. That’s exactly how Howard and Suzanne planned their destination nuptials, and thanks to Florenta Flower DesignHana Chung Photography and a team of dream vendors, the day turned out to be one for the books.

From the Bride… Howard’s favorite color is turquoise and as a child I always loved the color orange. So when we decided to get married in Cabo, I thought the perfect color scheme for our wedding would be a seafoam green with a coral accent to go with the desert and the sea. After finding my dress, I knew I wanted a romantic vintage wedding filled with lace, roses and candle lights.

We choose to have a destination wedding in Cabo because of its surreal, crystal clear beaches and pure romance. Cabo gave us an excuse to celebrate our marriage over an extended vacation with our closest family and friends. Dreams Los Cabos made our wedding extra special by helping us host a welcome bonfire the night before our wedding and a Mexican themed night consisting of dancers and a mariachi band the night after our wedding.

One of the highlights from our wedding happened days later when we decided to do our own version of “trash the dress” by going horseback riding in our wedding attire. Cabo was a beautiful destination! We are so grateful to Dreams Los Cabos and all the vendors who made our wedding day one we will never forget.
