Izzi + Chris at Finest Playa Mujeres, Cancun

share /

Izzi and Chris’s destination Cancun wedding at Finest Playa Mujeres was an exciting adventure for the AFE team, and one of our most memorable weekends ever — and not just because a week after their wedding went off without a hitch, the world shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their bright and bold boho-chic design plan was the perfect backdrop for the beachfront destination, capped off with sunset photos, al fresco dining, and a mariachi band during cocktail hour! We had such a great time planning this destination wedding, and love revisiting the joy in these incredible captures by Take It Photo. Check it all out below!

Planning together… from afar! 

Jen first met Izzi years ago when she was a bridesmaid in her cousin’s wedding. When she reached out to Jen to let her know it was time to start planning, Jen was in. When she also mentioned that they wanted this wedding to be bold and bright, Jen was even more in. THEN, when she casually mentioned that said wedding would be in Mexico (in March), Jen was SO in that she couldn’t be more in. In less than a year, they worked together to whip up the most magically colorful, boho-chic beach wedding. It was truly a magical weekend that Jen felt lucky to be a part of.

Three Things We Loved About This Wedding 

  1. The bright and colorful bridesmaids dresses! Izzi and her group pulled off an incredible color palette that was absolutely perfect for the occasion.
  2. The groom, Chris, designed their invitations — when a couple has such creative talents we love seeing them shine in this way.
  3. A very special request from the bride: Chocolate Iced Wedding Cake!

We had the most incredible weekend in Mexico, and we’re so glad Izzi and Chris chose to bring us there! To learn more about planning with A Fresh Event, check out our Destinations page.
