carmen & bruce – now jade riviera cancun

Carmen and Bruce are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest Newlyweds! This Canadian couple can thank the tenacity of a mutual friend for their happily ever after.

Here is their story….

The bride and groom share a mutual friend who is as perceptive as she is tenacious. She thought that Carmen and Bruce would be perfect for each other, so naturally, she set out to trying to introduce them in group settings. But, time after time their work schedules conflicted. Not willing to concede defeat, she finally gave Bruce Carmen’s number. And the rest is history.

Bruce knew that Carmen was the one, and so when they set sail for a Caribbean cruise together, he proposed on the balcony at sunset, on their very first night at sea, afraid that she was going to stumble onto the ring in their tiny cabin.

They are a pair of beach-loving sun worshippers, so when it came time to bring their loved ones all spread across Canada together to watch them get married, planning a destination wedding in the Riviera Maya, Mexico made perfect sense. They dreamed of a sunny, fun-filled wedding day with family and friends.

They tried to create a relaxed, beachy vibe for everybody by using white, navy and teal for their wedding colors. They kept the mood light and playful with custom bobble head cake toppers made in their likeness.

Aside from the bride battling a hungry iguana for her wedding morning breakfast with a mimosa clenched tightly in her fist, the day was smooth sailing. In the end, it was even better than expected, filled with laughter and memories they will cherish forever.

Carmen offers some advice for the bride-to-be who is getting married at an all-inclusive resort:

Try not to worry. This is what resorts do multiple times a day. Everything may seem disorganized and chaotic during the planning, but in the end it will be perfect.

Carmen and Bruce, a HUGE congratulations to you both, and we wish you all the best in this next chapter of your lives together!
