Cozy Tropical Elopement Inspiration at 16TULUM

June 20, 2020 | brooke

Get ready for the most magical, tropical elopement inspiration inspiration you may have ever seen! A part of the Thrive Wildly workshop, the incredible team behind this cozy day at 16 Tulum is made up of some of the best wedding professionals in the world, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what lead photographer and workshop leader, Melissa Marshall, had to say:

Tulum really is other-worldly. The aesthetic, style, and culture all mesh together in this extraordinary way to make you feel at home in the jungle. So we tangled up in sheets, played in the outdoor shower, and then put on a dreamy elopement-styled shoot that felt so intimate + perfect, Poncho + Cenit claimed it was great practice for their wedding one day. We wanted to dress up the location we had – not having to go anywhere else, but make it simple, like a real elopement would be. Florist and stylist Maria Limon came to help set up a dreamy tablescape for two. We foraged some things for a cool ceremony backdrop. as well, all using the same location, 16Tulum, a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Quintana Roo, Mexico.
