Samantha + James

Secret Jewel Beach Villas Destination Wedding | Samantha + JD

Samantha and JD are a young, fun-loving, adventurous couple who are over-the-moon for each other! From the first time we met them, we could tell that their love is intense and unconditional. They aren't your typical couple and they didn't want a typical wedding. So their first thought was destination wedding in Mexico! Of course, when they were envisioning their most perfect day, they didn't want a hotel wedding, so they began their search in the Riviera Maya for their magical place. They landed on Secret Jewel Beach Villas which can be described as a little piece of heaven! They worked hand-in-hand with Shailly Karni, who helped them coordinate everything to their guests would have an amazing and engaging experience, outside of the hotel! They got ready in Paradissus Cancun, and then met briefly for a loving and emotional first look, before they headed to Secret Jewel Beach Villas, with their guests following shortly behind them. While they waited for their guests to arrive, they exchanged gifts including Samantha's Epic video montage dedicated to her soon-to-be husband. It was fun and JD was filled with tears! Once their bridal party arrived, there was more fun, drinks, laughs, and celebration! Their ceremony was gorgeous, the weather was impeccable, and the reception was out of a storybook! When two people are so in love, and they make THAT their priority, everything else just simply falls into place! We feel blessed to have had the chance to meet Sam and JD, and we wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!
