A romantic beach wedding is never a bad idea, and Julie and Matt managed to inspire us all with a celebration that merges the two in the sweetest way possible. It’s all beautiful blooms, gorgeous sunsets and mint-hued details transported straight from an English garden to the beaches of Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa. Elizabeth Medina captured every beautiful moment and it makes for one awe-inspiring collection of photographs below.
From the Bride… Thank you to our parents, family, and friends who sacrificed time and expense to travel to Mexico and celebrate with us; it was the vacation of a lifetime! Our Mexico crew has a special bond and we should all go back. Thank you for the constant advice and help on wedding related decisions. Thank you to Elizabeth Medina Photography for capturing the day beautifully and for being a calming presence throughout the day, and to the Dreams Tulum staff who took such good care of us!
My favorite memory was accidentally waiting until the night before the wedding to write our vows. Of course, I was in a panic, but Matt wrote his down without a sweat. He also managed to calm me down so I could write mine. When we read them to each other during the ceremony, they ended up being a mirror to one another and it was really special to me. I will also always cherish the memory of having dinner on the beach during our reception. We were sipping wine surrounded by people we love so much, with our feet in the sand, listening to the waves and Frank Sinatra playing in the background.
From the Groom… Seeing Julie walk down the aisle was my favorite memory. Even though I had seen her just before that – when we did our first look – when she came around the corner with her dad she looked so happy and beautiful.
