A destination wedding was definitely in the cards for world travelers Christina and Waxee. The couple met while Christina was living in Paris and Waxee in Baghdad, fate brought them together on a journey to Egypt and Jordan! They maintained a long distance relationship until they could no longer live apart and moved together to Austin, Texas. In 2013 on a sailing trip to Croatia, romantic Waxee popped the question to Christina on a secluded cliff overlooking the Adriatic Sea in Dubrovnik. Traveling for their wedding just made sense really, so they invited their family and friends to join them in the Riviera Maya at the boutique hotel Al Cielo. The ceremony on the beach was cozy and intimate (Playa Xpu Ha is one of our favourite beaches in the world!), with a mix of laughter and tears, bright flowers and a unity sand ceremony. The reception in the restaurant of Al Cielo included delicious cuisine, mojitos with fresh mint and a great party with their guests from around the world.
“The day was amazing! Super good weather, beautiful sky and a lot of New Yorkers who know how to party! Christina and Waxee met traveling in Egypt, they are adventurous people who enjoy travel and have fun in new locations. The could not have chosen a prettier or more intimate destination than Al Cielo. The newlyweds had guests from many parts of the world, friends from Paris, England, Japan and the USA so the whole day was a very international celebration.” – Melissa
