karee & erik – iberostar paraiso maya

Karee & Erik are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! A shared love for sports and travel led to them getting married on the beach in Mexico.

Here is their story….

Karee and Erik are a pair of sports junkies. They love the Packers and the Brewers, and go to live games, home and away, as much as they can. So, it seems appropriate that it was on one fateful day at a Brewers game, where they were introduced by mutual friends. And the rest is history.

This bride and groom have terribly itchy feet, and have logged loads of exciting adventures around the world together.  When it came time to make honest woman out of Karee, Erik could think of no better place to propose than Paris! He wooed her with a river cruise up the Seine, complete with champagne, followed by a ride up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. There, like so many hopeless romantics before him, Erik got down on one knee and asked Karee to marry him.

The choice to get married on the beach in Riviera Maya, Mexico, was an easy one. Erik and Karee had been to Mexico three times before, so they agreed that a destination wedding in Cancun was perfect for them, and they never thought twice about it.

They chose the Iberostar Paraiso Maya as their all-inclusive wedding venue, and their day went off without a hitch thanks to on-site wedding coordinator Pamela Gonzalez. The bride and groom wanted perfect scenery, a beautiful sunset, and a fun celebration on the beach. Check, check and check!

They were able to incorporate a little Mexican flair with a mariachi band, to offset their ‘Beachy Romantic’ color palette of soft pink and aqua.

Karee was stunner in a beach wedding dress by Maggie Storetto, and she carried a bouquet of pink roses with pink and white lilies.
