Jennifer and Colin are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! When a close mutual friend contacted us to make wedding photography introductions to some of her best friends planning a Tulum wedding, we knew that THIS adventure was going to be extra special. And it absolutely exceeded our expectations!
This is their story…
How they met
Our bride and groom met at work. They naturally started spending more time together in the office until one day something changed, and so they tried secretly dating, and then, of course, fell in love.
How he proposed
Colin proposed to Jennifer on Christmas morning. After the presents were open and they put their daughter Ella to sleep, Colin told her there was one more gift. It was a Birks bag! But when she opened it, it was empty. She turned around for an explanation and there was Colin, down on one knee with her engagement ring.
Why a destination wedding in Tulum
Tulum is special to the bride and groom because it was where they went on their first trip together and fell in love. It also served as an opportunity to get everyone they love together in one place for a week. Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa provided the perfect backdrop for it all.
And what made this extra special for us here at Fun In The Sun Weddings was their guest list of our old friends from Vancouver, Canada! We knew that this wedding would be a welcome mix of work and play.
The wedding day details
The bride’s stunning beach wedding dress was Galina Signature.
Jennifer and Colin wanted an elegant and simple vibe to compliment the Tulum jungle. They chose a color palette of quartz, white, very light pinks and green, and this was reflected in the florals designed by Dreams Tulum Weddings.
Although they used Etsy for most of the decor, like the custom nameplates which greeted each guest at the reception, Mexico Giveaways also helped with some of the special little touches; Maracas for a touch of Mexico, and fans to keep the heat at bay. They also brought a 1930’s typewriter to use as their guestbook.
And DJ Seleccto kept the party going with an illuminated dance floor and great music! We had an absolute blast!
The best wedding day moments
The bride tells us that she most enjoyed walking down the aisle to see her groom, and also walking into their reception and seeing all of their favorite people gathered together.
Some of our favorite moments included watching their 2-year-old daughter Ella steal the show at the wedding ceremony, as she stood in the aisle clapping and cheering during the celebration of her parents’ love! We also especially appreciated the opportunity to connect with an incredible group of people gathered to celebrate one very special couple.
