Pretty shades of pink on the beaches of Cancun, Mexico sound like a dream. Add to it a stylish and romantic vow exchange, and you get an incredible destination wedding. Mindy and Tai tied the knot with a magical beach ceremony and a beautiful deck reception under a gazebo.
The bride, Mindy, looked stunning in her Essense of Australia Style D3023 dress for a bridal look that is equal parts boho, whimsical and romantic. After finding the dress online, Mindy visited The Bridal Room to try on her dream gown, and it was love at first sight.
It was a dreamy wedding day that is sure to delight, filled with a plethora of the most romantic blooms. You’ll love every special moment, all artfully captured by Ana Lozano Photography. Get ready to “ooh” and “aah” over every carefully curated detail!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL!
I met my now husband in high school. We’ve been together for a whole decade, and we finally got married this year! When he proposed, it was super romantic and a total surprise.
At first, I thought the proposal was actually just going to be a birthday party for me, since he proposed on my birthday in 2021. However, he had planned to propose in front of all my friends and family. He and some friends set up all the decor, and they were all there ready to surprise me. I was shocked when it turned into a proposal.
DESCRIBE YOUR BRIDAL STYLE. HOW DID YOU WANT TO LOOK ON YOUR WEDDING DAY? TELL US ABOUT YOUR DRESS-SHOPPING EXPERIENCE.
I fell in love with Essense of Australia Style D3023 from the moment I saw it online. When I finally tried it on, it was love at first sight. It has a very boho vibe but still gives off an elegant feel, which was the perfect vibe for our destination beach wedding in Cancun, Mexico. I wanted to feel and look like a princess on my special day, and this dress made me look and feel exactly like one. The train really topped it off as I walked down the aisle on the beach. I felt so beautiful in this wedding dress, and my husband was in love with it too. When we had our first look, he looked in awe when he saw me in my dress for the first time.
TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING. WHAT WERE YOUR THEME AND COLORS? HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR WEDDING PERSONAL TO YOUR LOVE STORY?
We had our dream wedding on the beaches of Cancun at the Finest Playa Mujeres resort, and it was beautiful. The icing on the cake was being surrounded by all our friends and family. I always knew I wanted a beach wedding when I was young, and I still can’t believe my husband and I made it happen together.
It was important to us to incorporate little details here and there to make our wedding feel personal. For instance, we had a money gun for our entrance with fake dollar bills with our cat’s face on it. We also had a custom printout of our favorite video game character dressed in a wedding dress and suit on our guest signing board.
The most special memory that was worth every penny on our special day was the fireworks at the end of the night. It was a surprise for our guests, and it truly made our wedding that much more special.
Our first dance was also very memorable, as we practiced for two months before the wedding. When it came time to finally have our first dance, my husband and I were laughing the whole time expecting to mess up, but we had so much fun and we outperformed ourselves.
Cheers to Mindy and Tai!
