andrea & kris – grand coral beach club

Andrea and Kris are Fun In the Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! This bride and groom had one of those perfect beach weddings that most little girls dream about.

Here is their story…

Andrea and Kris met through their jobs when Kris’ company was hired to do some work for Andrea’s. They became friends instantly and naturally moved into dating later.

Kris’ family has an annual fireworks celebration, and he figured this to be an excellent opportunity to propose to Andrea. So in front of their closest friends and family, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. They celebrated their engagement that night with delicious food, great company and amazing fireworks.

Their decision to get married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, came solely from the accounts of their friends’ vacations to the area. Great food, weather, and scenery? Why not right? They didn’t want to plan a destination wedding on their own, and so fortunately for them, they stumbled across the incomparable Kristee Smith and Fresa Weddings, who wowed them from day one.

When they began planning their Playa del Carmen wedding they had some ideas of what they wanted it to look like, but Kristee and her Fresa team exceeded all of their expectations. The bride and groom are both very outgoing people and wanted vibrant colors to express that. Queen of the blooms – Vanessa Jaimes, didn’t disappoint, with a bright palette of tropical colors that looked spectacular!

Andrea was a stunner in her mermaid beach wedding dress by Kitty Chen, with hair and makeup by the magicians at Beso Brides, as she married Kris in front of family and friends from all over North and South America.

Andrea says that she has two favorite moments from her wedding day. The first one is when Kris and I were able to sit down for a moment and take in all the sounds, sights, and smells of that magical evening on the beach. It felt as though we had paused the evening and were able to take a breath and let everything sink in. I’ll never forget that beautiful memory. My second favorite moment was when my husband and daughter performed a choreographed dance together. They had practiced their dance for several months leading up to the wedding and kept it all a secret. Watching them dance in front of all of our friends and family filled my heart with so much love. They stole the show that night and I felt like the luckiest person in the world at that moment.”

And what advice does Andrea have for the brides-to-be out there?

Don’t sweat the small stuff, in the end all that matters is that you feel love and happiness. So enjoy the ENTIRE process, because it ends in a blink of an eye.
