Serendipity is not just a fantastic movie starring Kate Beckinsale, but the concept of good fortune brought on by chance. Meet Hannah and Francisco, whose love story began by chance, on a lake, when they were children. After an accidental run-in on the lake while they were on a family vacation, it would be 10 years before Hannah and Francisco reunited by chance, as adults at a large Christmas party. It was, as Hannah describes, “love at first, or technically second, sight.” Francisco not-so-jokingly stated with conviction that night, that he was going to marry Hannah one day. Their coincidental run-in turned purposeful courtship led to what you’ll see here as the quintessential fairytale wedding! Cancun’s stunning waterfront completed their story, full-circle. What began as puppy love on a lake, ended in holy matrimony by the ocean.
And let me tell you, it was love at first sight for me, with this wedding-scape (that’s totally a word)! Their oceanfront gazebo was nestled on the white sand, and adorned with pretty pink and white blossoms suspended above linen drapery. With everything from the energetic Mariachi band to dazzling sparklers and a pool illuminated with pink lights – Hannah and Fran’s wedding was genuinely one of the most vibrant weddings I’ve seen to date. Jonathan Cossu Photographer was on site to capture all the details of this beautiful love story.
Thoughts from the Bride:
Now here we are! We both love traveling and have traveled all around the world together. We live together in a house with our two Golden Doodle dogs. We both work very hard during the day and find solace in each other after long days.”
