small family wedding at the beach in mexico

Elopement Moon Palace Cancun, Wedding Photography.

Sara and Dean had their family elopement at Moon Palace Cancun with their cutest children Paige and Blake. The whole wedding day was very relaxing and so much fun. We started documenting the big day in the morning during the gym session, then there were wedding preparations mother with daughter and father with son. Everything was flowing so naturally –  zero stress, which was absolutely perfect! At the moment of the wedding ceremony in the beach gazebo, their vows moved something inside of me. I can’t remember now what was said but it was absolutely beautiful! After that,  everybody had so much fun, including me! We took some pictures in the hotel bar and then played at the beach with sombreros. Watching this family enjoying whole day that much, with smiles, hugs and even tears made me feel a little  overwhelming. No doubts, this little family elopement was the warmest wedding of the year. Thank you so much, guys, for letting us make a part of it.

As always, the bride and the groom share their experience of the elopement wedding in Cancun Mexico and tell what they loved the most: We wanted something simple and just for us. We originally thought of small venues back home but we wanted to incorporate our ‘family-moon’ also, and Dean has always preferred the idea of a vacation wedding, so we settled on away. We love the vibe in Mexico, the people are lovely. We know the places we want to visit, it is also suitable for our children … and you cant beat the scenery for photos!

Tell us about the most memorable moments of this day.

Sara: My most memorable moment from the day, was welling up as I said the words ‘with this ring I give you my life’ it meant so much to me, I’ll never forget looking into deans eyes and finding it hard to catch my breath. And I’ll never forget watching my Daughter (Paige) have her hair done and eating ice cream with a huge grin in the salon and the fun of playing with the children on the beach after..it was everything we wanted from our day!

Dean: I think it was spending time with Blake (son) getting ready and helping him look smart, and then us both waiting for Sara and Paige to come around the corner and seeing how beautiful they both looked, I loved that it was just our little family..plus the weather was awesome!Your advices to future bride and grooms preparing their destination wedding in mexico: Relax! and take in all those little moments of your day..they are the best parts!
