Katie and Gio’s Tulum destination wedding proves that even a tropical beach locale can exude timeless elegance! The couple’s distinctly white and black color palette and contemporary style was chosen to complement the naturally airy light near their venue, the gorgeous Papaya Playa Project resort. Between Katie’s super low-back vintage silk gown and black platform Yves Saint Laurent heels, we can’t get enough of her bridal style! Photographer Evangeline Lane captured Katie and Gio’s day beautifully, including some epic beachy portraits.
Katie and Gio
Papaya Playa Project, Tulum, Mexico
I wore a white satin vintage gown with Saint Laurent black heels and pearl earnings from Melissa Joy Manning. I was lucky that my best friends are hair and makeup artist so they did my beauty looks.
The destination (Tulum, Mexico) helped to set the vibe – we tried to reflect the style and vibe of the location.
We had a surf and turf style barbeque (served at the table) with a Mexican spin. By merging bbq style dining with waited table service we tried to keep the reception both elegant yet familiar.
White was the most prominent colour – we picked it to contribute to the light, airy and summery vibe of a typical Caribbean beach wedding.

Fantastic looking weeding, congratulations.
Just wanted to reach out because we hired Reelove as well. We were married in Mexico in January 2016, nearly 2 years ago, and still have not received our video on USB, and they do not respond to emails and phone calls. Have you guys experienced similar troubles?
