When you come home from a wedding and your face hurts from all the smiling – it’s a good day! Maegan and Justin’s wedding was an explosion of pure joy, and a whole lot of fun. Bright colors, birds and a happy dancing bride made this Iberostar Paraiso del Mar wedding a delight! We asked Maegan and Justin to share their reflections on their day.
Del Sol: It’s amazing LOVE brought you here! Why did you Travel for Love?
Maegan: “We traveled to paradise for our big day and we wanted to share it with our favorite people!”
“We knew we wanted something small and intimate with those who know and love us most and running away to paradise was the most perfect way to do it!” – Maegan

Del Sol: What was the most amazing moment of your day?
Justin: “The ceremony!”
Maegan: “Hearing Justin recite his vows :) and honestly the moment that we both laughed about how much our cheeks hurt from smiling so much! It was the perfect day.”
“I loved how personal our vows were to our relationship! Justin made his vows about who we are as a couple and all of the things we love to do. It was so special and so fun and I just loved it so much!” – Maegan
Del Sol: Justin, was there a part of Maegan’s vows that you loved?
Justin: I love the passion Maegan has for life and how she was able to intertwine it with her love for Duke to make vows related to our marriage.
Del Sol: You have a really great wedding team! Talk to us about how your loved ones contributed to the awesomeness of your day!
“It was so great to spend the day with our best friends and family members. Justin spent the day out on the beach with his best friends and made great memories and I was able to spend the day hanging out with my girls.” – Maegan
“Everyone lives across the US now and it’s been years since we have all been together. Being able to spend a week with everyone was truly amazing. And everyone pitched in on our big day! From helping to decorate and clean up and even MC our reception, everyone was amazing!”
Del Sol: How was your experience with the del Sol team?
“Our experience with Del Sol was amazing! From the first phone call we had almost a year ago I knew they were the perfect addition to our day.” – Maegan
“I have followed Del Sol on social media for years and always knew I wanted them to photograph my wedding and I am so glad it all worked out. Polly was a true dream and a great part of our day!”
Del Sol: “Why did you choose an Iberostar Paraiso del Mar wedding?
“Our first big trip together was to Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar. We loved it so much that we go back every year! It was easy choice to get married there. We love the resort and the staff and experiences so much we wanted to share it with everyone we love the most! It was so great to share our favorite place with our friends and family.”
“We love Demetrio at the resort! He’s been our favorite bartender and we always make sure to visit him on our trips, and this time he was our wedding bartender! It was so great to have him out there for our big day.”
Del Sol: How was your experience in Mexico – bearing in mind the current travel advisories against Mexico?
“Our experience in Mexico was amazing! We never felt unsafe and the resort feels like a dream.” – Maegan
“We told our guests that had doubts to just stay on the resort and not go out anywhere and they all said they felt safe there. I would tell other couples planning a wedding in Mexico that as long as your guests stay on the resort or choose reputable excursions, they will be safe and there is nothing to worry about.”
We were over the moon to receive this awesome testimonial from Maegan after she saw her slideshow:
“Ohhhh my goodness Polly!!! These pictures are so amazing!! We laughed and cried and smiled because we were reliving our day all over again thanks to you. It was truly a magical day for us and you captured it so perfectly. Thank you thank you thank you!! You are such a gift!!! We are so excited to see what else you have for us and truly can’t thank you enough for everything.”
“Every friend I have that has gotten married has always had some regrets about their photography, that they should’ve researched more or spent more for better quality, and I can tell you right now we have zero regrets and I am so thankful that we were able to have you there on our day.”
“Because of the bad experiences our friends had with photographers we actually made it our priority and we booked Del Sol before we did anything else! You were the start of our wedding budget where most people do that last and try to fit it in. I am so glad that’s how we went about it!”
“Thank you so much!!!! I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with so much joy! You’ve definitely added extra joy to our celebrations this year. Can’t wait to show off these photos!!”
