Anna-Rose and Matt flew to Mexico for a week for their spring wedding. The day was elegant with an edge and the bride wore not one, but two, stunning dresses.
“Our rehearsal dinner was fun, festive and very Mexico, but for the wedding itself we wanted to do something unexpected: a formal wedding in Mexico” explained the bride. “Everyone was expecting the typical beach wedding, but I’m not a beach wedding kind of girl, so we were married in the courtyard of the villa we rented and kept all the colours very muted (whites, blacks, some gold and leafy greens).”
“My husband’s mom passed away one year before our wedding and the week she passed, she was in the hospital, a bit delirious and someone asked her what she wanted, her response was, ‘a beach’. That was the last thing she said. Up until that moment I had been planning on getting married in Michigan, but when I heard that, I thought, life is too short to do things just because it’s the thing to do. You have to live your own life. Some people were very upset and judgemental about us having a destination wedding, but most people embraced it and were so happy to be a part of it.”
