Now Sapphire Cancun Wedding – Getting Dressed | Marilyn & Andrew

The wedding of Andrew and Marilyn at the Now Sapphire Resort was full of love, family, and impeccable style. The couple celebrated their shared Mexican heritage with a destination wedding at this stunning Mexican resort, and they celebrated their big day with their two large families eager to see the lovebirds unite. Andrew and Marilyn opted for an eight-hour wedding — which meant I had plenty of time to capture gorgeous photos!

In the photos of the couple getting ready below, I hope you’re inspired by their sweet love for family, joy, and incredible fashion sense:

Since the wedding represented the bringing together of their two families, it was very important to Karla and Jeff that I capture plenty of family portraits. In the photos below, you can truly see how proud the couple’s grown sons and daughters are of this special union.

The sugary sand and bright turquoise waters of Playacar Beach really popped against he wedding party’s natural-colored attire and the beautiful cream and pink bouquets put together the talented Jardin Floreria. Now this is exactly why you have a destination wedding in Mexico — you can’t capture these colors anywhere else.

The stunning grounds of the private villa rented by the couple, Casa Jalach-Naj, provided some unique photo opportunities, too. The entire family were such good sports — and wait till you see Jeff and Karla’s “trash the dress” session in the surf and pool. The newlyweds just can’t stop smiling!
