Allison and Krissie are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! These brides had a Riviera Maya destination wedding that was unique, fun, and full of love.
Here is their story…
How They Met
The brides met when they both began working at a DC-area elementary school. Krissie was a first-year Assistant Principal and Allison was running a program. They first connected at Back to School Night, and since they were both new to the school, they became immediate allies. Months of Capitals hockey games followed, and with so much in common, by the following spring, they decided it was more than just friendship.
How They Got Engaged
The brides took a Carnival cruise with some close friends to St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and Turks & Caicos. Dancing after dinner one evening, in a moment they describe as “so perfectly them” Krissie proposed to Allison. They could not share the news outside their small group aboard the ship for a day and a half following the engagement because they were at sea, which was difficult but also made it that much more special.
Why a Destination Wedding in Mexico
Allison and Krissie’s families love the beach, so a beach wedding was a no-brainer. The Mayan Riviera’s beauty, reputation and proximity to the DC area made Now Jade Riviera Cancun the perfect wedding venue.
The Wedding Day
With so much natural beauty on the beach, Allison and Krissie did not go over-the-top with wedding decor. The sand and sea made a perfect backdrop. They chose a color palette of coral and white to compliment the turquoise sea and powdery beach.
Allison and Krissie added a unique element of two aisles leading to the ceremony arch. It was a first for everyone, including Irina, the wedding planner, and us, the wedding photographers. Walking towards each other down the aisles was arguably their favorite moment from the whole day.
Many of the guests shared that it was one of the most beautiful and emotional weddings they had been to.
The Wedding Guests
All 70 guests received a fun welcome bag with neon sunglasses emblazoned with #when2becomeJuan. This was a great way for them all to identify who was in their group…and for the rest of the resort guests to know who to avoid! They also received personalized drink koozies, a big hit and momento of the vacation.
The best part of the wedding-week experience was how so many different groups of their friends and family came to celebrate with them. The support and love were unforgettable.
Allison and Krissie, it has been a true pleasure sharing your wedding adventure and we will miss you! We wish you every happiness in this next chapter together, and look forward to the anniversary trip! Congratulations!
