{Real Wedding} Destination Mexico - Part 2

This is a continuation of Tracy and John's Mexico Destination wedding that we planned at Ceiba del Mar in Puerto Morelos.


The ceremony took place on the beach under a simple bamboo canopy. The couple did a unity sand ceremony, and everyone laughed when the groom's sand got stuck in the vase.

At the end of the ceremony as the bride and groom kissed, we had the staff pop several bottles of champagne to really set the tone for the festive atmosphere (they were so excited, I had to keep whispering "not yet!"). Then on to the cocktail hour which took place on the pier, while the bridal party took photos.


Guest were invited to the dinner reception on the terrace.  The bride wanted a white linen so that the bright flowers would really stand out. We brought in glass lanterns with candles to add to the ambiance.


The illuminated dance floor was set up on the beach with a lounge adjacent for guests to watch.  We also had several floodlights that lit up the ocean waves crashing on beach all night.  Which led to a first...the whole bridal party running in to the ocean...maybe a little tequila helped as well!
