• Gazibo Wedding Ceremony at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort

Wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort – Chantal and Mark

Who doesn’t love a bride and groom who toss a football back and forth during their formal portrait session? It’s also a great example how much fun Chantal and Mark are. Not taking life so seriously they can’t take a little football break, doesn’t matter if it happens to be their wedding day. When they first met at a cottage during the summer of 2012 they clicked right away, thanks to their shared laid-back attitude and love of sports. And you can still that connection is still strong in these photos.

They told us it was a dream for them to marry in front of the ocean and share the sun setting across the water.  Choosing the Wedding Gazebo at the Dreams Riviera Cancun fits this dream perfectly by being right in front of the ocean and slightly elevated, giving all the guests nearly the perfect panorama for enjoying the view.

I promise to hold your hand and kiss you on the forehead because I know you like that – From Mark’s Vows

Mark made sure he gave her the appreciated forehead kiss, which was a very sweet moment.

We have all been to weddings where some invited guests simply couldn’t attend or are no longer with us.  In the case of the latter, family and friends still look to include them on the wedding day with a memorial.  We have seen so many heartfelt ideas such as lockets with photos attached to bouquets, to framed portraits placed in an empty seat reserved for them.

For Chantal and Mark’s wedding, they included a table with dedications to lost loved ones who could only be there in spirit, placed just on the side of the ceremony for guests to visit. A very nice and touching tribute!
