“Eunice and Cory are a sweet couple who surrounded themselves with love, close friends, family, and unending joy on their Wedding Day! Their Wedding was unlike any Wedding we have photographed because it took place on the beautiful shores of Tulum, Mexico! We are so incredibly grateful that they brought us along to document their stunning and intimate I DO’s.”

Eunice says:

“We knew we wanted to get married on the beach and Mexico holds a special place for both of us.  The most important decision we made was choosing Hotel Jashita for our wedding venue.  It’s an intimate, beautiful hotel with a zen vibe and a maximum capacity of 50.  It’s the only hotel on Soliman Bay and we rented the entire place for a three-day weekend.  We kept wedding events to a minimum, so that everyone (including ourselves) could relax and feel like they were on vacation.”

“The weekend went perfectly.  We never felt rushed, and we were able to spend quality time with all our guests.  This was the first time our families ever met, and our respective sides – central Texans and northeast Asians – had plenty of time to interact and get to know one another. Our wedding planner (Gwen) did an amazing job keeping the decor in line with the overall ambience of the place – elegant yet laid back.”

“The best surprise was the quality of the food.  We had a cochinita pibil and lechon taco buffet with made-to-order tortillas at our welcome dinner.  Tommaso, the hotel owner, personally spearfished the wahu main course served at our wedding reception.  The one detail we cared about above all else was the churro cart, and our wedding planner made it happen.  Churros were served freshly fried and piping hot….MWAH!”

What were your highlights and your favourite memories from the day?

  • “We did a traditional Korean wedding ceremony the night before the wedding.  Though it was a major pain to bring down all the props and traditional outfits, it was completely worth it and everyone loved it.  The other highlight was dessert; instead of wedding cake, we had a churro cart and paletas on the beach.”

Do you have any advice for brides-to-be who are looking to have a destination wedding in Mexico? 

  • “There are pros and cons to having a destination wedding, but it was the best decisions we made.  It keeps the wedding small and intimate; every guest was an important person in our lives.  We had the whole weekend to spend quality time with our friends and family and never felt rushed.  Our two worlds – central Texans and northeast Asians – had plenty of time to interact and get to know one another.”

  • “If we had to give one piece of advice, find a small venue that you can have all to yourselves; the weekend will be so much more intimate and cohesive.  We found the perfect venue for our wedding with Hotel Jashita.  It’s a beautiful, private hotel with a zen vibe and a maximum capacity of 50 guests.  It’s the only hotel on Soliman Bay, and we rented the entire place for a three-day weekend.  We kept wedding events to a minimum, so that everyone could relax and feel like they were on vacation.”

 

  • “Lastly, it’s important to find a local wedding planner whose taste and style you trust, since you must relinquish control over many of the wedding details to this person.”

Would you do anything differently?

  • “Given the beach setting, I would have kept the food more casual and authentic.  For our welcome dinner, we had a local specialty called cochinita pibil (slow roasted pork tacos, with fresh salsas, guacamole and made-to-order tortillas) served buffet style.  The tacos outshined the more formal sit down dinner during the wedding reception.”
