Escape Reality With This Romantic Beach Wedding

Elizabeth Greene

With dreams of a beach wedding in mind, this Bride decided to turn those dreams into reality and planned this ethereal blue and grey drenched seaside celebration in sunny Mexico. Blue Rose Photography captured every gorgeous wave, every sweet kiss between the new Mr. and Mrs., and all the smiles that never, ever faded. Take a mental vacation with our gallery of pretty pics right this way! From the Bride... I’ve always wanted to travel to Mexico and dreamed of getting married on the beach, however, I didn’t think I would ever make this reality until I started planning my big day. As I was growing up, you could always find me drawing pictures of the beach, tropical flowers and palm trees over and over again. After debating back and forth, my fiancé and I decided to take the plunge!At first, we thought we wanted bright pops of color until we really started visualizing our dream wedding. Of course, we had to play around a bit on Pinterest and Instagram. After a while, we started to notice we were pinning and saving photos with a lot of soft shades of blue and grey. So we did a complete design overhaul and couldn’t be happier. The soft but vibrant colors of Cabo and Playa Grande Resort, and the sand, ocean, amazing rock formations, beautiful architecture and waves played a big part in our wedding and really inspired us. We also threw in a few pops of lime green to please my now-husband and major Seahawks fan.Our ceremony and reception overlooked the ocean, a perfect and relaxing way to share our most precious moments with our loved ones. With the waves as our backdrop, I wanted to do something a little different than I typically would and also had my bridesmaids and flower girl dress in white. We wore bottomless sandals for the ceremony as we walked through the sand and later with teal heels for the bridesmaids and silver gemmed heels for my daughter, the flower girl and me. The groom and groomsmen all wore grey Sperry boat shoes, something we searched high and low for for the perfect style.I was also lucky enough to tie in some of my favorite Seattle vendors from working in the wedding industry into my destination wedding! One of my all-time favorite photographers, Blue Rose Photography shared our big day with us, and I knew the images were going to be exactly what I’ve dreamt of. The paper goods from Mint Afternoon were absolutely stunning from the place cards to the menus and bar sign. DJ SpamIAm was on point in keeping the guests constantly impressed by the music choice and were all nonstop dancing. Then there were the hand-dyed table runners from Gather Design Company that I absolutely adore. We tied this all together with the help of my sister and planning manager from Simply by Tamara Nicole.
