This adorable Texas couple decided to plan a destination wedding that their fellow Texans could easily travel to. Located near Cancun, Tulum was a beautiful beach setting, with long stretches of sandy beaches and nothing but blue skies! This wasn't Marie and James' first tropical vacay, as he popped the question on a trip to Dominican Republic.

For their event, they opted for a resort that would be able to cover all the traditional details (flowers, catering, etc.), to make wedding planning as least stressful as possible. Guests enjoyed mariachi music, dancing, and great cocktails at a moonlit evening reception. To conclude the evening, the wedding party decided to take the leap into the pool.

Thank you to Helo Photography for sharing this fun destination event with us!
