For Kristin Monica and Tim Taylor, getting married was a dream vacation … to Cancun. The couple escaped the cold mid-Missouri winter in early December and headed to the Caribbean Sea for warm weather, beautiful beaches and a celebration filled with friends and family. “Having 33 of our family and friends who made the trip all the way to Cancun to see us get married meant the world to us,” Kristin says. “The day really went by in the blink of an eye.”

For both bride and groom, one of the best moments was the first look photo session, which took place in the spa of the Dreams Natura Resort and Spa and was designed to look like a Mexican cenote or natural swimming pool. It tied in perfectly with the couple’s efforts to keep more of a natural feel throughout the festivities, from invitations to décor.

And even though the weather wasn’t entirely cooperative, as it poured on the reception for about five minutes, the guests returned, with about half in casual but dry clothes and the rest “ready to party in wet clothing,” Kristin says. “The party was epic and unforgettable, and truly the best day of our lives.”
