Isla Mujeres Wedding | Jimmy & Nichole
Jimmy & Nichole are adventurers and travelers by nature so when they sat down to think about where they would host their special day, it only made since that they would choose another beautiful destination. This time, they wanted it to be a place they would experience with their closest friends and family by their side.
We traveled to Isla Mujeres, Mexico and first met up with Jimmy & Nichole for their ‘day before engagement session‘ in the most epic spot on the island. Incase you missed it, be sure to check out the views and that killer blue water… it will give you all the island vibes!
The next day, we couldn’t wait to see our two new friends tie the knot at Zama Beach Club. Upon arrival to the house where they were getting ready, Nichole told us to feel free and go around and explore. That’s our kind of bride!! She also mentioned a private beach that was located nearby and told us to check it out. PERFECT! We roamed around a bit and decided that the private beach would be the best spot for their special First Look since it was in a little cove off the beaten path, perfect for a private moment for the couple. When everyone was dressed and ready, we led the couple (separately) to the private beach spot for the reveal. Jimmy seeing Nichole for the first time was the sweetest moment and we adored his tender reaction to her. We felt so lucky to be witnessing these two in this moment and couldn’t wait to see them get married later that afternoon.
We cabbed over to the Zama Beach Club and were once again taken back by the views! The venue set the perfect tone for an intimate, island wedding. And then, with sand beneath their feet and huge smiles on their faces, Jimmy & Nichole said “I-Do!” We stole the newlyweds away for some gorgeous sunset photos on the pier and even though the sunset was quick, it was absolutely beautiful with hues of pink, purple, & blue. The day had gone flawlessly and we couldn’t have asked for more… but that didn’t mean it didn’t get better! After sunset, the flickering candles and paper lanterns lit up the palm trees as Jimmy & Nichole’s guests dined by the sea. They toasted to the happy new couple and the celebration began! Shortly after, Jimmy & Nichole had their “cake by the ocean,” their surprise guests appeared walking up the beach. Everyone rushed over to greet the visitors and quickly realized the treat that was in store. The fire dancers drew closer to the small crowd while beating their drums and lighting their torches. No one could tear their eyes away from the flames being thrown in the air and everyone was in awe. It was such an amazing surprise to the wedding guests and we were beyond thrilled to capture this special moment of the day. It’s one we’ll never forget!
Jimmy & Nichole,thank you for bringing us to Mexico to witness and document your special day. And thank you for making us feel like a part of your family. For letting us tag along on your adventures (snorkeling!) and for exploring a new place (Punta Sur) with us! We seriously loved every minute and we’re so happy to know you both!
