Real Wedding Inspiration - Destination Weddings, Mexico

I have another edition of Real Wedding Inspiration, Beach edition! Each bride and groom pour their hearts into every detail of their day. I think it’s really important to take photos of even the smallest detail of their day.

As a beach wedding photographer, it’s really important to capture these details to give the couple the photos that make them relive their wedding just as they remember. To have them go back in time and remember how they felt during their special day.

Each wedding is unique in their own way even if they were held at the same venue. Each bride and groom take their time to choose linens, flowers, dresses, and even the earrings that they’ll wear on the day of their wedding.

All of the weddings in this post have been photographed on the beaches here in Mexico. Do you see anything that you’ll want to add to your wedding look and feel? I really just love all of them!

Real Fall Outdoor Wedding Inspiration

I love creating inspiration boards from real weddings that I have photographed.  Each detail is carefully selected by the bride and I feel like rather than put together found images from the internet, we'd use their visions to help you!  Nothing is more inspiring than seeing how someone put together their wedding.  Using perhaps the same ideas you have for you big day.  

This one is close to my heart because the bride is my cousin! It was a beautiful fall wedding with deep wines, gold, and dark wood details.  Completely DIY creating the wood pieces themselves as well as all the styling and bouquets.  And nothing says beautiful fall wedding like dancing under warm cafe lights in a beautiful garden.

What is your favorite detail of this wedding? Would you use any of these ideas in your wedding?

Make sure you pin these images and share with your newly engaged friends, they won't want to miss seeing all of these beautiful details!

Beach Wedding Inspiration

Since I've been closer to the beach, I have realized that Beach Destination Weddings are just beyond amazing!  It's a perfect option for the bride who wants to have a breathtaking ocean background, mini vacation, and your most important guests share their day with you.  I wrote a whole post on why you should have a destination wedding, you can read it HERE

I want to share with you guys the beautiful decor that each bride pours their heart into to create the wedding of their dreams.  Each of the inspiration boards are from REAL BEACH WEDDINGS!  Each unique, each different and all amazing!  Make sure you pin these images!

Jessica + Jordan Puerto Vallarta

Colors: Teal, cream, bright and soft pings, and orange.  Adding some glam with the brides sparkly shoes and votive candle centerpieces.  Florals were those beautiful lilies in bright tropical colors as well as white.

Everything mixed well together to create a beautiful tropical ambiance to the wedding.  Can't get over the bride's maids mix-matched dresses in different pink hues!

Anais + Mario Mazatlan Beach Wedding

This couple wanted more of an elegant and timeless feel to their wedding with a beach ceremony and beautiful closed reception hall for their party.  It was not with out beautiful details to keep it tied to the beach theme!  Those tiffany blue bride's maid dresses are to die for! Tying it with white florals for the bouquet and boutonnieres make it look effortlessly elegant!

We continue to see the trend of using glass votive candle centerpieces with roses and lilies to create that glamour during the reception.  Paired with sliver charger plates and tiffany blue linens.  Love!

Gabriela + Fernando Puerto Vallarta Beach Wedding

Can you mix blush pink, grey, and mint for your wedding? You can bet on it! These colors made for a beautiful blend of feminine and masculine with the mint and grey while keeping it flirty with the blush pink.  Ah! I can't get over how it just works so well together!

And let's get some of those beautiful votive candle centerpieces and plush pink tipped roses to light up the night while we're at it.

Cristy + Eduardo Cancun Beach Wedding

This couple kept things light and airy during their wedding! Makes perfect sense since the background of their wedding provided a lot of decor with an intimate chapel ceremony and beachfront reception.  Cristy opted to mix-match her bridal party dresses ranging from soft mint to rich teal hues and her bride's men? They wore matching colored ties.  Definite win!

Add the sand colored centerpieces and white bouquet, this wedding made a statement to not overpower the beach in the background and keeping it classy and playful at the same time.


I hope these inspiration collages help you to get more ideas for your own destination beach wedding!  Make sure you pin them so you can reference back to them when you start planning your big day.  And don't forget, we would love to document your wedding as well! ;).

Real Wedding Inspiration | Tips for Brides

I love real wedding inspiration.  It's like getting a glimpse at all the hard work that the bride put into her details for the day of the wedding.  From the florals, the dress, the shoes, and the cake!  I know first hand that each detail is important.  

I remember including sunflowers because my late grandmother loved sunflowers and it was her way of being there.  The rest of the florals were wild-like because we wanted a sense of adventure and nature through out.  The dress had to be a particular flowing and comfortable yet simple dress.  The list goes on... 

What is so great is pulling the detail images and really seeing how it all pulled together.  These are for you, future brides! Make sure you pin the inspirations so that you can come back to them and create a wedding with details all your own :).
