Michelle & Brandon are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! This bride and groom provide the perfect example of why we love doing what we do. They totally enjoyed their wedding day, staying carefree and relaxed, and the result is absolutely magical wedding photos!

Here is their story….

Michelle and Brandon met while working together at a bar in Burlington, Ontario. Michelle, the bartender, called dibbs the first time she laid eyes on the new bouncer, Brandon. It was at a party after work one night that Michelle weaved a little magic to be alone with him, and the rest is history!

Brandon planned to propose to Michelle while on a long weekend camping trip, but he was convinced that she knew what was up because he had shared the news with their co-workers. But no, Michelle was totally unaware of his intentions, so when he turned to her one night and said that he did not think they should go camping as boyfriend and girlfriend, she interpreted it to mean that he wanted to go in costume.

“When he pulled out the ring box I thought it was a whistle to use as a prop! I really don’t remember what happened after that until he started saying – You’re supposed to say YES”

This bride and groom had a very short engagement and immediately jumped on planning their destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico because they both love being outdoors in the sun.

“We thought how amazing it would be to get married in the sand in our bare feet. Plus, what a great excuse for us and all of the people we love to go on an amazing vacation together!”

Michelle went shopping for beach wedding dresses with her mom and did not have any idea what she was looking for. But the second she tried on her dress, straight from the rack, she knew it was the one. Simple, but with a touch of sparkle. Perfect for the beach!

Rarely does a wedding day go off without a hitch, and this bride and groom’s hiccup came when their resort informed them that due to capacity, their hair and makeup team would not be allowed on site! But Beso Brides were just amazing every step of the way. Even when they did arrive and were told they could only stay for three hours, Michael and Martina said they would get everyone done even if it meant finishing them in the lobby!

What are Michelle’s tips for all the Brides-to-Be out there?

1. If your wedding planner tells you that you do not need a rehearsal, at least make sure you know which path you should follow to walk down the aisle, as well as which bridesmaid will walk first!
2. Pack something for wrinkle release, just in case.
3. Most importantly, don’t let the small stuff get you down even it feels the most important. Things will happen, but that’s where great stories come from.

Great advice!
