Alex and Dylan are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds. This bride and groom wove a love for animals, and Games of Thrones into their destination wedding in Mexico.
This is their story…
How They Met
Alex and Dylan met at a mutual friend’s party a few months after someone had tried to set them up on a blind date, which fell through. They hit it off immediately, and a light chat indoors quickly turned serious outside on the fire escape. That conversation lasted into the late morning, when, as they say, the rest is history.
How He Proposed
Dylan decided to propose in Playa del Carmen during a family vacation. At sunset on the rooftop of their villa, with a crinkling of plastic, he knelt down and asked Alex to marry him – using a blue ring pop!
Why a Destination Wedding in Tulum
Tulum has been one of Alex’s favorite places since she went on a yoga retreat. She found it to be peaceful, unique and the perfect place to get married on the beach!
She hired Gelena and the team at Weddings Riviera Maya to bring her elegant bohemian wedding to life at the Ak’iin Beach Club in Tulum, which she believes would have been impossible otherwise. In fact, her main advice to brides getting married on the beach is:
Hire a wedding planner. It is worth the cost! There are so many details to keep track of and the schedule of the day can be very intimidating. Having someone to take all that stress off your shoulders (and your mother’s shoulders) is worth every penny. I didn’t think I’d be able to even enjoy the wedding given how stressed I was, but because we had support everything went beautifully.

The Wedding Details
The bride and groom chose a color palette of green, blue and gold, with a Game of Thrones theme. Alquimia Events and Taller de Flores brought this to life. Their reception tables were named after the different houses, their entrance song was from the show, and their incredible cake was a creation of Zaida Marcos.
Being huge animal lovers, Alex and Dylan made a donation to the Tulum Animal Shelter. They felt it was the perfect way to celebrate the love and joy they felt at such a huge moment in their lives. And so, their wedding favors were little paw print cookies to commemorate those people who take care of animals of animals in the Riviera Maya.
