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:
These satin platform pumps from Badgley Mischka are incredibly chic and elegant. I love the decoration at the back of the heel; they add elegant sparkle in a beautiful pattern.
Getting ready for the ceremony was a team effort! Marilyn’s sweet sister-in-law did her vintage-inspired, swept-back hair do, while Marilyn’s romantic makeup was done by the Jade Now Resort and Spa. I love capturing these sweet, intimate moments while the bride is getting ready.
This is one of my favorite getting dressed photos — Marilyn just looks so amazing and confident, and the light illuminates her beautifully. She’s almost ready to meet her groom!
Marilyn wore a long, dramatic white veil. It perfectly complemented her strapless gown.
Marilyn’s father seemed to be very proud of her when he saw her for the first time dressed as a bride; his “little girl” was all grown up and more stunning than ever. The pair shared big smiles — I am sure it was a magical, emotional moment for them both.
Andrew is one well-coiffed groom, with a fun and unique sense of style. I loved how his personality was reflected in his wedding-day outfit!
This couple looked so stunning for their wedding day, didn’t they? The time spent getting ready is so special to capture because it’s the last moment the bride and groom spend alone — and that unique combination of nervousness and pure excitement shines through. See how it all came together for Marilyn and Andrew in their Now Sapphire Cancun wedding ceremony photos and portraits, which are equally as jaw-dropping.
