The Royal Playa del Carmen Wedding – Getting Dressed | Rebekah & Eli

For Rebekah and Eli, a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen was all about having a good time. The couple from Little Rock, Arkansas, celebrated their union with a select group of friends and family at the stunning The Royal Playa del Carmen, an adults-only all-inclusive resort with over a dozen restaurants and bars, plus the beautiful Playacar Beach nearby. From the bride’s fun fringed shoes to the colorful, tropical reception centerpieces, this wedding was a true fun-in-the-sun Mexican celebration! In these intimate “getting ready” shots, you can really see Rebekah and Eli’s excitement building for the big day:

Rebekah’s stunning and light lace gown was perfect for a tropical wedding location. For more destination wedding dress inspiration, read our post on Simple Beach Wedding Dresses.

Rebekah’s sister and mom were on hand to help her get ready and offer support before she said “I Do”! I caught them sharing a laugh together before Rebekah changed into her wedding dress.

While Rebekah and Eli didn’t have any official bridesmaids or groomsmen, they each did have their closest friends with them to help them get ready and enjoy the big day.

I loved photographing these two during their “getting ready” moments. There’s something so sweet about capturing the nervousness and excitement of couples right before the wedding ceremony. I know they’ll treasure these beautiful, warm photos for years to come!
