Shelby and Josh are Fun In The Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! These cuties have already been together almost half their lives, and their Playa del Carmen beach wedding marks the beginning of a brand new chapter of their adventure.
This is their story…
How They Met
The bride and groom met ten years ago when they were in the 8th grade, and have been together ever since!
How They Got Engaged
They got engaged the same way they got married; on the beach! Josh proposed to Shelby in Punta Cana.
Why a Destination Wedding in Riviera Maya
The newlyweds choose a Riviera Maya destination wedding because Shelby had always dreamed of a beach wedding and Josh was fully on board with the idea. They envisioned an intimate barefoot ceremony and reception with their closest friends and family, and chose the Mayan Riviera because of the breathtaking beaches.
The Wedding Day Details
Their vision was to compliment the beach, not distract from it. Their color palette of bright pink contrasted against the blue ocean was executed perfectly through the bridesmaids’ dresses.
They also captured black and white “vintage” shots of their guests with a polaroid camera.
Their Favorite Wedding Moment
The bride and groom agree that their favorite wedding day moment was their First Look photo session. Shelby was so nervous to see Josh but his reaction was priceless when Josh finally got to see Shelby in her wedding dress. They were glad they decided to do a First Look as it gave them an intimate moment to calm their nerves that they wouldn’t have otherwise gotten. The bride appreciated that she could then walk down the aisle and take in the feeling of being surrounded by their loved ones who came to support them.
