Jessica and Harry are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! This globetrotting bride and groom settled on a Riviera Maya wedding without ever having been to the area before, and they were absolutely blown away.
Here is their story…
Jessica and Harry met in the mailroom at work. Their first date lasted from morning til night, starting with a hike in the morning, lunch, movies and ending at a concert. They have been inseparable ever since!
Not long after, they spent a year travelling around Europe together. We can certainly attest to the fact that if you can backpack together, and come home still in love, then you’ve got what it takes for a successful marriage!
Harry proposed to Jessica on a Thanksgiving trip to Kansas City. They were taking in the view and vibrant fall colors on an empty platform at the Liberty Memorial, when Harry said,
I don’t care where we are, as long as we are together.
And then he proposed. Awww!
Jessica had never dreamed about her wedding, and didn’t give it much thought until she needed to start planning it. They both knew they wanted a small outdoor wedding somewhere beautiful. Harry’s family is in the UK, and Jessica’s is in the USA, so getting married in Mexico seemed like the best solution for everybody to have a sunny holiday together. They went solely off other people’s input, having never been to the area before themselves.
They were married on the beach at The Grand Luxxe Vidanta Riviera Maya. Jessica was a stunner in her beach wedding dress by Lian Carlo, and Harry’s grandmother’s lace wedding veil.
What were their favorite moments? Jessica says hers was reading their personal vows, trying to keep emotions in check when they could hear family and friends crying. And Harry says his was watching Jessica walk down the aisle.
The bride’s advice to the brides-to-be out there?
When the day comes, don’t worry about a thing. Just relax and look around. Take in every moment and every detail.
Jessica and Harry, it has been a true honor capturing your wedding and the memories of your special day. We wish you nothing but happiness in this new chapter of your lives together. Congratulations!
