We’re dreaming of warm weather and sandy beaches this week, which makes Carissa and Robert’s Cancun wedding a sight for sore eyes. The celebration took place at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, where the couple and their closest friends and family gathered for a sentimental waterfront ceremony. No time was wasted before the party got started, beginning with the bride and groom’s first dance and ending with the groom and his men running into the ocean in their skivvies. Luckily Jason Q Tran was there to capture every moment and range of emotion.
Carissa and Robert
Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, Cancun, Mexico
The inspiration for my overall decor theme was effortless and fun. Generally, when people say they want “effortless,” it involves millions of minute details that somehow harmonize to feel effortless. When I say effortless, I literally mean effortless. I’ve found that when one doesn’t have expectations, it is impossible to be disappointed. Being in graduate school, we both didn’t have any time to truly plan a event, which is why having this destination wedding was such a pleasant experience. The resort’s planner gave us a few table options, organized everything, and all we had to do was show up! Our only wish was that we had an intimate party, where our guests could really let loose and enjoy this new chapter with us.
Our favorite moment from the wedding had to be the “grand exit” that happened when a large group of guests and the groom decided to run into the ocean. It really captured the spirit of the entire day – perfectly imperfect.
