Even though the weather was stormy and windy in Cancun, Mexico up until moments before their outdoor beach ceremony, Deborah and Larry didn’t mind, because they were able to spend Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and their beautiful wedding with family and friends in an amazing destination location.
Just before guests were seated, the weather lightened up, and Deborah and Larry exchanged vows barefoot in the sand. Translucent gauzy tepees, gorgeous hand-painted wooden signs with famous love quotes written on them, and bay leaf garland aisle runners created a crisp white beachside space. Deborah looked the part in a classic Vera Wang gown and a low chignon with a pretty crystal hairpiece. Her makeup artist (from Southern California-based Beauty by Melina) kept the look soft and romantic with a dewy lipstick and blush.
After the ceremony, the couple and their guests headed inside to a ballroom at Ritz-Carlton Cancun to celebrate the rest of the evening. The night ended with a fun travel-themed groom’s cake and a sparkler send off. Brian LaBrada Photography captured all the beautiful moments below.
Tell us Knotties, would you ever have a destination wedding? If so where would it be?
