This Seaside Wedding Will Take Your Breath Away

There are seaside weddings in Tulum, and then there is this stunning day captured by Luma Weddings. Think soft colors, romantic lighting and beautiful florals all wrapped up in a breathtaking backdrop like the Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa. It’s basically everything you’ve ever wanted your wedding to be WITH a big ol’ side of sunshine. See so much more in THE VAULT.

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.

Bridal Beauty 101: Finding That Perfect Style for Your Gown

You’ve found that dress of your dreams and now it’s time to focus on putting the entire look together with hair and makeup.  Need help? Well, we’ve got you covered, because today we’re joining forces with Jennie Kay for a quick run-down on all things beauty with tips + tricks on achieving that glam wedding day look, no matter the gown or style you’re dreaming of. Let’s get started.

LOOK 1: CASUAL GLAMOUR

Your style? Laid-back with a big ol’ side of sophistication. Which means rocking a stunning gown that shows some skin and hair + make-up that is just as sleek and glamorous. Jennie Kay suggests pairing your dream dress with a rope braid pony or soft low bun that is dressy enough for a wedding, but is also completely effortless.

LOOK 2: VINTAGE ELEGANCE

You’re a vintage-inspired lady looking to rock that elegant lace number, but still maintain a modern, yet sexy edge. Jennie Kay’s tip? A bright red lip for that much-needed side of sophistication and a stunning updo that frames one side of the face, plus sweeps across the back in a beautiful style that is reminiscent of the past.

“Look at the way you wore your hair at your initial dress fitting. It usually mimics your initial idea on how your hair should be.” – Jennie Kay Beauty

LOOK 3: BOHO BEAUTY

Crave a look that is soft, romantic and free, just like you and your wedding? Then this fab boho look from Jennie Kay Beauty is sooo for you. Simply keep your hair natural in wave and texture and add three gorgeous braids for a little pop of WOW.  Want to add a little glamour to the look? Really make those eyes stand out with just the right shade of shadow and mascara.

LOOK 4: SWEETLY CLASSIC

For those of you who want to keep it sweet + classic on the Big Day, Jennie Kay suggests a low twisted ponytail that is equal parts show-stopping and wholesome. Pair it with subtle makeup (like a light pink lip) and a gown that has just a pop of sass and the results are absolutely timeless.

LOOK 5: TOUSLED SOPHISTICATION

Waves are a girl’s best friend and when it comes to a wedding day look that is equal parts laid-back and sophisticated, Jennie Kay keeps those tousled waves down with just a few sweet strands pulled back for a look that is all sorts of romantic. Add some soft pink lips and some barely-there makeup to complete the look.

Contact Jennie Kay Beauty to create a seamless, stunning look from head to toe… you won’t regret it.
