Erin & James are Fun In the Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds. Who would have guessed that sneaking into an ‘R’ rated movie would have ended in getting married on the beach in Cancun, Mexico?
Here is their story…
Erin and James met in high school. They met through mutual friends at the movies one fateful night. The trouble was that Erin was the only one not old enough to see the ‘R’ rated movie everyone had gone to see. Chivalrous James came to her rescue and they bought tickets to see a different movie, with the intention of sneaking into the restricted flick with their group. Security kicked them out, and they ended up keeping each other company for the remainder of the night. And the rest, as they say, is history.
The bride and groom love to travel. He proposed to her on the beach in Punta Cana in front of all their friends in a photobomb with her girlfriends. When he surprised her with a trip to Cancun for her birthday, they stayed at the Fiesta Americana Condesa. They saw weddings on the beach every day of their vacation and fell in love with the idea of a planning a destination wedding in Cancun. And their experience at the resort was so great that they had to get married there.
Her bridesmaids all had a special contribution to Erin’s wedding. One new sister in law did her hair, and the other made a sign for James’ dad that read “We know you would be here today if heaven wasn’t so far away.” Another bridesmaid made her garter.
Their Cancun destination wedding was perfect. Erin says her favorite moment came from taking the advice to stop and take it all in at some point. During the wedding reception, the bride and groom stood up on chairs and watched their guests dancing and having a great time. Then they all turned to Erin and James and started singing to them!
Erin’s advice for the bride-to-be planning her destination wedding in Cancun?
It’s never too early to start hair and makeup, especially if you have several others getting it done as well. I missed some time and memories with my girls because my makeup ran later than expected, and that was after I requested an earlier start time!
Erin and James it has been such a pleasure sharing this awesome moment in your lives, and we wish you every happiness in your marriage. Congratulations!
