In the weeks and months leading up to the big day, I was over the moon to coordinate and craft Rebecca + Michael’s Wedding Day. They knew they wanted intimate, they knew they wanted the Caribbean and a whole lot of love! They hail from my home town, so it was even more of a great connection to pull this off bigger than their dreams could create.
They got into town a few days early and we got the opportunity to meet. Initially we had planned on hosting their Destination Elopement Ceremony close to their hotel, the Paradisus La Esmeralda + La Perla here in Playa del Carmen. As sometimes happens, the waters in Playa were a little murky in Sunset bay and Becky really had her desires for a Turquoise that was plugged in and electric. I knew I had the place. A few months previously I had happened upon a beautiful lagoon side restaurant in the hotel Cancun Zone and being so close to Playa Delfines – I knew the combo would set us up for an amazing afternoon to say I do!
With her sultry low backed Katie May on, the amazing Sara Tamargo’s hair + make up done, we headed to Cancun for an afternoon none of us could have imagined. Between crashing waves, a beach mostly just for ourselves and a turquoise ocean so saturated and screaming LOVE the ceremony and subsequent TTD session were amazing. Full of love and laughter and just a good old time, it was hard to imagine a day more perfect. And then we headed to dinner…
A few kilometers down the road, we headed to Navios’ for dinner reservations. I hoped we’d get a sunset to have a lovely close to an otherwise perfect day; what I didn’t know was that all of Becky + Michael’s loved ones no longer with us had conspired to deliver a sunset so unreal I think we all cried at their blessing on that day.
To Becky + Michael – thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me and my team to be a part of this chapter in your lives, we wish you so many more years of silly laughter and so much joy.
