Playa del Carmen Destination Wedding at the Royal Hideaway – Mee and Gene

We were really excited to attend the Playa del Carmen wedding of Mee and Gene after reading their engagement story. On vacation in Hawaii the couple were on a hike when they found themselves in “paradise on top of the world” and they stopped to take photos. Gene handed the camera to Mee to see the shots, but instead she found photos of Gene in a number of special places holding up signs asking her to marry him. Engagement by photographs, of course we think that is romantic! This California couple brought their closest family and friends to the Royal Hideaway in Playa del Carmen to combine two of their favourite things, traveling and Mexican food. Bride Mee was pure elegance in her gown by Allure Bridals with hair and makeup by The Styling Trio Riviera Maya, with her charming groom in grey beside her. The Royal Hideaway Playacar played host to the destination wedding, coordinator Karina Tagliarini put together a beautiful day from the ceremony on the beach with coral details and flowers by Alquimia Events to the reception that found everyone fully clothed in the pool!

When we asked Mee why they chose Del Sol Photography, here is what she shared with us:

To be honest, at first I wasn’t too drawn to your style as it was different from what I thought I initially wanted. However, every time I look at your photographs, its as if I’m there feeling exactly what your subjects feel. Every image is captured so perfectly and the colors are amazing. When I look at your photographs, you capture the feelings I envision having on my wedding day and that’s when I knew…

Photographer Melissa captured all the smiles and details, please be sure to see the whole slideshow. Del Sol Photography thanks Mee and Gene for inviting us to share in their wedding day, we wish you both a long, healthy and happy life together!
