“We can both agree that just “being in the moment” was the best part of our day. Once we said “I do”, it was like nothing else in the world existed but us and our guests. We laughed, we cried, we kissed, we danced, and then we cried again – purely out of love. Everything was perfect.” – Miles
Being in the moment, truly present and appreciating every nanosecond – that’s what a wedding day should be :) We asked Miles and Josh to elaborate on some of the highlights of their wedding day starting with their decision to do a “first look”.
“We do everything together. I’m sure that if we were given the option to get ready together on our wedding day, we probably would have.” – Miles
“We weren’t sure if we wanted to do a “first look” photo. It was kind of a last minute thing we decided to do because we knew we’d both be very emotional. We were happy with our decision because we both cried like babies.”
Del Sol: Is true love being able to squash wedding cake in each others’ faces?!
“Before we even began planning the wedding, we promised one another that no matter what, there would be absolutely no cake smashing. Obviously this did not go as planned! We were so in the moment, having so much fun celebrating with our friends and family that it just didn’t seem right to not smash a little bit of cake on each other’s faces.”
Del Sol: We love to know the words that stood out in your mind from your wedding day. Did anyone say anything especially touching?
Miles: “After the wedding, we spent an hour or so with Miles’s grandma from the Philippines in her room. She has lived a very hard life and everything she does, she does it for her family. She’s the most humble, tender heart we know.”
“While breaking down in tears, she told us, “You are husband and wife now. Just show your love for each other. That is enough.””
“The simplest of words, but coming from her, these words were packed with so much value and wisdom. Her heartfelt advice will always resonate with us. She is our role model.”
Del Sol: How was your experience with the del Sol team?
“We simply cannot put into words how fantastic our experience with Valeria and Judas was. They created such a fun, comfortable atmosphere for us all – it was almost as if they were guests rather than our photographers!”
Del Sol: Why did you choose Now Sapphire?
“We had such a difficult time choosing a resort once we decided on having a destination wedding. It seemed we had searched for months for the perfect resort. We read lots of reviews and sent countless emails back and forth to many resorts and decided to go with Now Sapphire. We’re so glad we did! The resort is all-inclusive and family friendly which was great for our 40 guests. There were tons of activities and entertainment at the resort and plenty of secluded places to just relax and unwind. All our of guests had a blast.
“Juan Carlos was our wedding planner and we could not be more grateful to him. Juan pretty much held our hand throughout the entire planning process – he was SO helpful! When we got to the resort, we gave him two suitcases full of decor and a scratch piece of paper with the most horribly written notes on the way we wanted everything to be. Somehow he made sense of it all. Everything turned out perfect.” – Miles
Del Sol: Talk to us about the whole destination wedding experience!
“The top destination wedding advice I have to give is trust your wedding planner. I spent so much time stressing out because it’s hard to plan a wedding in a different country. Looking back, I wish I hadn’t stressed so much! Trust your wedding planner; they have your back. Especially if it’s Juan Carlos at Now Sapphire.”
“Josh and I had been together for five years before our wedding and before that, we had never traveled outside of the country together. Traveling to Mexico was an excellent experience together before we tied the knot. Together, we are capable of all things, even if our suitcases are 17 lbs over the limit!” – Miles
