Erika and Spencer are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest Newlyweds! It was their love of adventure and good times that ultimately led them to plan a destination wedding in the Riviera Maya.

Here is their story…

Erika and Spencer met at her very first college party when she was a Freshman and he was a Sophomore. Each thought the other was not interested in them, but rather in their friend. However, a few weeks later they began dating and have been inseparable ever since.

This Bride and Groom both knew they had found ‘The One’, but decided to wait until they both graduated from college before getting married.

Spencer proposed on Christmas Eve. I knew it was coming, I just didn’t know when. Everyone said “It’s about time!” But I would have waited forever plus a day to be with Spencer.

They had vacationed in Mexico and it was the natural beauty and friendly people that made them choose a destination wedding here in Riviera Maya.

We knew that a destination wedding would not be as stressful. We did not want to focus on the little details of decorating when we had the beautiful scenery of Mexico. We wanted to focus on each other, and our friends and family. And what better way to start a marriage than in paradise?

We couldn’t agree more!

Erika found her beach wedding dress at Brickhouse Bridal in Houston, Texas. Spencer’s mother, who is no longer with us, was there the moment she tried on her dress and immediately knew it was the one she wanted to say ‘I Do!” in.

It was a special moment I will cherish forever because she loved the dress as much as I did. I am glad I got her approval.


On her wedding day, Erika refused to worry about things that were beyond her control. The only thing that mattered to her was marrying Spencer.

I didn’t care if a hurricane came. I was going to put on a yellow rain coat, profess my love to him, and become his wife!

These Newlyweds are a strong couple who have already endured more than most people do in a lifetime. They have grown stronger together through shared tragedy. They share a special strength in their relationship that provides a solid base for any successful marriage.

And so, Erika and Spencer, we want to send a very heartfelt congratulations to you both. We wish you every happiness as you enter this next chapter of your lives together.
