Jessica and Phil had a breathtaking sunset beach wedding at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Playa Del Carmen. Their love story is really sweet and a good example that soulmates do exist. You see, Jessica and Phil grew up just 5 minutes from each other and attended the same high school but they never met during that time! It wasn’t until Jessica transferred to Drexel University, where Phil was a student, that a mutual friend introduced them to each other. Phil proposed 5 years after their first kiss on the Jersey Shore. They both agreed to have their destination wedding in Mexico because it held a special place in their heart.
Jessica described the wedding ceremony as being like something out of a movie. The chuppa was covered in fragrant orchids and placed right on the beach with beautiful ocean views. During the ceremony, the sky kept changing which set the stage for some spectacular sunset shots. With the beach as their backdrop, guests enjoyed a reception with candlelight, fragrant orchids, a warm breeze and live music. At the end of the night, Jessica surprised Phil with a firework show synchronized to Coldplay’s – A Sky Full of Stars. Jessica said: “Every single detail from arrival to departure was unbelievable and embodied our love for each other. The gift baskets, the bikes, everything was done to absolute perfection, and strictly to our style.”
A big shout out goes out to Robert Evans of 5th Avenue Digital for doing such a great job capturing all the details of this beautiful wedding!
