Well, the wedding season is almost gone and after all the hard work, but also tons of fun, new experiences and even new friends, we want to share what we were doing during this months, starting with this incredible couple: Mel & Mat!
They have been together nearly 8 years. They met in the summer of 2008 when two of their best friends set them up at a bonfire one night. The following weekend they had their first official date and after that, they were inseparable. Each day after had been spent together, creating an everlasting love and friendship. In July 2014, Matt took Mel back to the place of their first date and proposed to her a couple days before their 6th anniversary. As the proposal wasn’t enough of a surprise, both of their families and friends were there to witness this wonderful moment as they were hiding on top of a waterfall looking down at Matt on one knee asking Mel to marry him. On May 12th, 2016, they said their vows in the sand at the Riu Palace Mexico in Playa del Carmen, with many family and close friends gathered around them. It was a dream come true and a perfect day with many tears of joy and emotion and even more smiles and laughter!
We feel very honored of being chosen as the “story-tellers” of their special day! this is one of the most beautiful weddings we had the pleasure to witness, as they both are amazing persons and so delightful to deal with! We’re so glad we can call them “friends” now! =)
As a special request from them, this is going to be a longer post (more pics included) but totally worth it! 😉 …. and don’t forget to watch their spectacular “trailer” video, at the end of the pictures, made by Frame Wedding Film, our partner video-company… it’s outstanding! Enjoy!
