When Destani and Everett started planning the details of their destination wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun, their goal was to celebrate black love and show that it is beautiful even as a wedding theme. All signs point to: Mission Accomplished!
In keeping with their theme, the entire bridal party donned all-black attire, which set the tone for a classy affair full of timeless elegance! The couple exchanged vows on a grand, candle-lined staircase enveloped by enormous, sweeping drapes that framed their ceremony perfectly.
I’m impressed that they were able to accomplish such a magnificent and opulent wedding but without doing too much. The chandeliers are all in their perfect place, the white flowers are simple and tasteful, and each member of the wedding party was dressed to kill. And it doesn’t end there! Destani and Everett took advantage of the gorgeous grounds this venue had to offer and took some amazing intimate photos in the lush gardens, and with the adorable “LOVE” sculpture while securing their padlock forever!
I was blown away by every single detail of this wedding and feel so honored that Destani & Everette shared it with us. There was so much beauty on display, and Adventure Photos did a great job capturing all of it.
