Taylor & Frederik are Fun In the Sun Weddings’ newest newlyweds! The bride and groom intended to have a small, intimate beach wedding, but instead ended up with a united nation of wedding guests!
Here is their story…
How They Met
Our bride and groom met on Tinder! Frederik was Taylor’s FIRST and ONLY Tinder date.
So they are basically the perfect ad for online dating.
How They Got Engaged
They were traveling in Bali and visited a quiet temple called Taman Ayun. Behind the temples was a large garden surrounded by a moat. As they walked through the trees, Frederik stepped off the path into a bamboo grove and started making silly references to a favorite panda movie. She moved past him and then turned around to find him down on one knee with a ring!
Why A Destination Wedding In Mexico?
Taylor & Frederik love to travel. They wanted to make that a part of their day and share it with friends and family. They thought they were going to have a small, TINY, very casual beach wedding, but instead everyone they love came to Mexico! They had wedding guests travel from all over the world – Denmark, England, Costa Rica, Texas, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and New Zealand!
Thankfully, it was still casual, barefoot and carefree like they wanted. Just filled with more love.
Her Beach Wedding Dress
The bride was a stunner in a beach wedding dress from BHLDN. Because her mom had a milestone birthday this year, the girls surprised her with a trip to NYC. While there, she said Yes To The Dress!
The Wedding Details & Decor
Everything was inspired by hydrangeas, Taylor’s favorite flower. While they are not native to Mexico they tried to include them wherever they could; their wedding website, invites, welcome letter and color palette. Now Sapphire surprised her by adding some into her bouquet and centerpiece!
And the ceremony was made even more special because Taylor’s brother was the officiant.
Their Favorite Wedding Day Moments
The Bride’s favorite wedding day moment was the first look. Marc told her not to cry, but when Frederik turned around she almost did.
The groom’s was sitting down at the beginning of the reception. The moment when they realized they were married, surrounded by so many people they love and were so lucky to celebrate with.
