Real Wedding – couple stuns guests at wedding in Cancun
I can still remember the day I met them…my first thought “beautiful and a very discerning couple.” My first thought, I can see them having their wedding in Cancun.
Karen was stunning in a beautiful blue dress and Brian was sharp in his shirt and tie. As we started our dialog, they listened intently, asked a ton of questions and they both took pages of notes. Our meeting lasted over an hour and two things were pretty clear – they were deeply in love and they wanted a wedding that would capture their individual personalities and lifestyle.
Brian and Karen had a vision of their wedding and they were adamant that their guests have the time of their lives. They wanted the “wow” factor. That meant finding the perfect location, affordable pricing for their guests, having amazing food and a place to party.
We went to work and about 15 months later, we met at Moon Palace Cancun for the big day.
To describe the wedding is an impossible task but I’ll try.
The eve of the wedding, the couple hosted a welcome reception at Lake Terrace.
Open bar, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, music/dancing and about 55 guests having an amazing time. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Except on the day of the wedding…
The chapel overlooking the ocean was the most spectacular location for them to say their vows. It was charming, it was beautifully decorated, it was inviting, and it was imitate. As I sat in the pew towards the back of the chapel, I spied the carriage …
OMG that is Karen in the horse-drawn carriage!
And here she comes….
OMG, she’s stunning (I heard myself say while everyone else was totally quiet, speechless to be exact) …
Not just for me this time, but for almost everyone!
Her stunning dress was a Provonia…and she couldn’t have looked lovelier. She looked like a princess.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many photographers at a wedding in all my life. Well, maybe at Princess Diana’s wedding (I think.) May I say, it will be a task to select pics for this wedding album (I would not want that job!)
We went on to a cocktail reception while the couple and bridal party took more stunning pics.
Oops, I digress…
We were ushered to the reception and every single guest stood there for a minute or two in utter amazement. Where did they get these fabulous favors? There were two armoires with pictures, favors, flowers, trinkets…and a table with hand-made plaques. Everything was personalized for Brian and Karen. It was like being in a candy store as a kid…so many things to capture my attention.
The decor was impeccable, the dance floor changed colors, the music was incredible (a mix of Caribbean and Spanish) and the tables were stunning. The wedding team deserves an award for transforming the terrace by the ocean into the most amazing reception area I’ve ever seen.
The bridal party came out dancing (their own signature dance to music) and the moment came…the announcement of the newly-weds.
Shut the front door… (my saying for when something is utterly amazing) they took this to a whole other level.
More Kleenex! I really didn’t think Brian could dance like that, but we were in for a real treat.
Dinner was just absolutely to die for. I could have gone back for more, but I wanted to behave and not look like I hadn’t eaten for days. Plus, I may be tempted to lick my fingers.
Pictures aplenty, everyone was snapping! I had to recharge my phone. I was in paradise and experiencing a magical wedding. Where do they do that? Only in Cancun I guess!
Then it was time for the first dance! A standing “O” for the couple…they dazzled us!
I didn’t dance but I watched everyone else, I was having way too much fun. It was a party to remember. This couple…they set the bar for weddings. To have 55 guests echo one word over and over is kind of hard to imagine. But, the theme among the guest was “Perfect, it was perfect.”
The following day we bumped into the couple. They said, they had the magical wedding they dreamed of. It was my honor to help them make their dream come true. It’s a wedding I will treasure for a lifetime.
And…the best part, I grew to love Karen and Brian and I think of them as friends. What more can I ask for?
There is nothing I like better than taking the dreams of a couple and transforming those dreams into reality, so they can have their magical moment.
