Ashley & Travis’ Romantic Playa del Carmen, Mexico Real Wedding by Melissa Mercado

Ashley & Travis’ Romantic Playa del Carmen, Mexico Real Wedding by Melissa Mercado

This is why you plan a destination wedding.

In many ways, a destination wedding is the height of practicality. After all, it means less wedding planning, closer proximity to your honeymoon, and often comes in at a similar price tag to domestic events. And all of these are great reasons. But, the best reason is evident in this real wedding: the location. With a vivid aqua sea backdrop and nothing but clear, sunny skies, can you imagine a more perfect wedding day? Ashley and Travis, a truly stunning couple, planned a simple, traditional wedding surrounded by palm trees, sand, and good friends.

Thank you to Melissa Mercado for sharing another enviable destination wedding with us!

Our Favorite Things:

  • Travis and his groomsmen in classic tuxedos (while it’s a popular choice to be casual for a beach wedding, we love their dapper look)
  • Ashley’s low updo and veil
  • The simple seashell centerpieces with table numbers
