Beach Club Wedding at Secret Jewel – Christie and Dave

The destination wedding of Christie and Dave was a celebration of love and pure elegance! After getting engaged on the beach of Tahiti, it was only natural that they have a beach wedding with all the family and friends in attendance. The couple met while working at Apple and describe themselves as “carefree, fun-loving, goofballs”, their energy was evident and infectious throughout the day. Yazmin de la Mora weddings and catering put together the wedding of their dreams, the decor was out of this world, we loved the grand chandeliers and flowers by Maya Diseno Floral. This was a big wedding, 7 bridesmaids in tropical floral gowns and the men in chic grey suits and a great big party of wedding guests. Bride Christie was so much fun and gorgeous in her gown by Amy Kuschel and hair and makeup by The Makeup Pros. Secret Jewel is a unique venue in Playa Secreto (though I guess we are letting the secret out), close to Playa del Carmen, it offers absolutely everything you need for a perfect wedding. The cake and cupcakes designed by Zaida Marcos were almost too pretty to eat, but as always, totally delicious! The reception was dynamic, everyone got up to dance and celebrate the union of Christie and Dave and there was a lot of laughter and love in evidence. Christie was so sweet, she sent us this note after the wedding:

We just wanted to send a quick note to say thanks again to the Del Sol team for such an amazing day!  We absolutely loved working with Melissa and Debora, and even tried to get them to stay for the rest of the wedding as our special guests : )  They were so much fun and made us feel so comfortable, we had a great time! Looking forward to seeing the pictures!

Photographer Melissa captured all the fun, beauty and energy of the day, please be sure to see the whole slideshow. Del Sol Photography thanks Christie and Dave for inviting us to share in your wedding day and we wish you both a lifetime of joy together!

      Dayna, thank you. Melissa nailed this shot here. The separation and profiles in the silhouette are totally awesome! I love the detail of how she framed them as perfect subjects using some beautiful symmetrical architecture in the background :) Cheers and thanks for commenting :)
