Dreams Puerto Aventuras Wedding – Marissa + Brandon

Marissa and Brandon decided to have a Dreams Puerto Aventuras Wedding for one very important reason:

Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Wedding – Keili + David

The big beach town of Playa del Carmen is located just one hour south of my home city of Cancun. Despite being so close, the two cities have completely different styles. I love the intense blues of the ocean at Cancun’s beaches, but Playa del Carmen’s laid-back style really draws me in whenever I visit.
