Marissa & Colin are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! This bride and groom are high school sweethearts who decided that a destination wedding in Cancun was the perfect way to achieve the small, intimate wedding they wanted.
Here is their story…
Marissa and Colin met in middle school at her joint birthday party in the neighborhood clubhouse. (How adorable is that?) They dated in high school, and then picked it back up again a few years after college. The rest, as they say, is history.
When it came time to propose and knowing that Marissa was a real sucker for Easter egg hunts, Colin decided that their first Easter hosted together was the perfect opportunity to ‘put a ring on it’. Marissa ended up with more than jelly beans and chocolate bunnies on that holiday!
They quickly realized that the cost of a hometown wedding would break the bank, and since they love to travel, and love Cancun, planning a destination wedding in the Riviera Maya was the right choice for them.
The bride knew her beach wedding dress would come from the local wedding gown shop, Sincerely Yours. She trolled the window displays regularly, and one day the belt of a dress caught her eye…and she was sold!
After trying to force a color palette of coral and gold, a basic placemat from their home became the inspiration for their hot pink and orange beach wedding. The mother of the bride can be credited with many of the DIY projects that made their beach wedding special and unique; favors, centerpieces, guest welcome bags.
The bride tells us that getting married on the beach in Cancun was perfect. She loved saying “I Do” to the love of her life, celebrating with her dearest family and friends, and capping it off with a sparkler send-off.
And her advice for the brides-to-be out there?
All that matters at the end of the day is you walk away married to your one and only! There are so many things out of your control – JUST LET IT GO!
Marissa and Colin, it has been such an honor sharing this awesome moment in your lives, and we wish you every happiness in the next chapter together. Congratulations!
