Melissa & Chris are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! This bride and groom had one of those picture perfect destination weddings in Playa del Carmen that every bride-to-be dreams about.
Here is their story…
Neither Melissa nor Chris were looking for anything serious when they met through friends at a bowling alley, but apparently, that doesn’t matter when it was meant to be!
A few short years later, after talking about engagement for awhile, Chris knew that Melissa wanted that ring! He intended to wait until after the summer for a trip they had planned to Seattle, but instead, he turned one regular Tuesday night in June into a memorable one. In between a little post-work chit-chat at home, he said, “Well I have something I want to show you…” pulled out a ring box, got down on one knee and proposed!
They settled on a destination wedding in Mexico because it was the easiest tropical location for their loved ones to get to. And they chose the Fairmont Mayakoba for its privacy and tranquility.
Her perfect beach wedding dress was Mon Cheri; lightweight and slim-fitting, embellished with little flowers – well suited for a beach wedding.
As a token of their appreciation to wedding guests (and this grateful photographer!), the wedding favors were delicious caramels muled down from an award-winning facility in their hometown of Bozeman, Montana. They also had destination wedding welcome bags filled with essentials like chapstick, sunglasses, custom engaged shot glasses, and of course Hangover Kits. (Which I’m told came in handy the day after the wedding!)
Like all brides getting married on the beach, the fear of a rainy wedding day crossed her mind, but Melissa was going to get married on the beach no matter what. Thankfully, they did not need to worry. Mother Nature gave them a smoking hot bluebird day, and Melissa loved every minute of it. (Except maybe the sweaty First Look photo session location?)
Her advice to the brides-to-be who are getting married on the beach in Riviera Maya?
Have some towels or something handy to wipe the sweat off your face and neck. Seriously…..it’s so hot!
Melissa and Chris, we hope that your perfect wedding day sets the tone for your marriage, and we wish you every happiness in this new chapter together. Congratulations!
