Nothing says paradise like a beautiful destination wedding bursting with color on the Mayan Riviera. Chezlie and Joey wanted to create a wedding that celebrated both their love for each other and their love for sandy shores and sunshine. With gorgeous lace and floral details and a wonderfully bright color palette, Chezlie and Joey’s vibrant wedding was photographed beautifully by Zasil Studio.
The Couple: Chezlie and Joey
The Wedding: 3.1.2014 – Zoetry Parasio de la Bonita, Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Inspiration: When we first began talking about the kind of wedding we wanted, we knew that it was important to us to be fun, classic, “easy like Sunday morning”, intimate, and beautiful. We wanted to create an event where we could celebrate our love for each other and the family we have created with a party filled with love, joy and laughter. I am obsessed with the ocean, and when I moved from Los Angeles back to Utah for gaduate school it was hard to leave the beach. I always miss that calming effect that sun, sand, a soft breeze and a drink with an umbrella in it can create. Getting married on the beach was my number one priority, plus with a destination wedding I knew that we could get all that time to spend with our loved ones and really have a wedding weekend celebration.
The best metaphor I came up with was the look was inspired by an old cathedral, where heavy, dark, rustic woods are accompanied with intricate metals, lots of color, lace and candlelight. The color palette included royal blue, terra cotta red, dark orange, gold, dark wood, and ivory. I wanted a lot of candlelight so the tables were filled with candles, candles in the pool and a lot of ambient lighting.
