A Gorgeous and Energetic White Sands Cancun Elopement Wedding

February 24, 2023

Bride and Groom walking to their reception in Cancun Mexico

Angel and Stephen gave the phrase “wedding party” everything they had! Their Cancun elopement at Secrets Playa Mujeres was a good time from start to finish, and you’ll see on their faces just how much fun they were having together! The white sands on the beaches of Mexico and the stunning ocean view in the background made for a magical setting for Angel and Stephen to make it official.

Angel & Stephen’s White Sands Cancun Elopement Wedding

Their wedding colors and details were elegant and simple. Perfect whites and greens that really highlighted the natural beauty of the palms, sand, and waves. Angel’s gown had a stunning open-back design, and the jewelry pieces she chose were the perfect combination of dainty and glam. They had their closest friends with them and it was like spring break meets “we’re adulting” now, ha! This crew was such a blast to hang with for the day! Angel’s smile was wide and her laugh was infectious, I couldn’t help but smile from behind the camera!

As soon as the portraits and the ceremony were finished, the party began, or should I say, continued! The coolest part of the day was a surprise, even to me! During Stephen and Angel’s first dance, they had these knowing grins on their faces, then Stephen took Angel and as he went to dip her, sparklers shot up from the sides of the dance floor! It was MAGIC! Everyone cheered, and they just reveled in that amazing moment they’d been practicing and waiting for! Afterward, Angel changed into the best reception party dress complete with sparkle and COLOR! Everyone danced their hearts out, and the night ended with an epic pool party!
