We traveled to Tulum and Cancun Mexico earlier this year. It seems like a lifetime ago but it was only in March. I've never been to Tulum before so it was so lovely to visit this quiet oasis in Mexico. We stayed at the Playa Paraiso Beach Club in Tulum which was exactly what we had hoped for. A small bungalow walking distance to the clear blue ocean. We did have a bit of a seaweed problem on the beach that hindered us from truly enjoying the ocean but we were already going up to Cancun so it wasn't too much of a bummer. In Cancun, we stayed at the Westin Lagunamar which was our second visit to the same hotel. It was so funny because we knew our way around and visited many of the same restaurants we did years ago. However, this time, we were with our daughter Tilly, which made it even more fun & memorable. Can't wait to get our toes back in the sand! xo
Their classic and elegant, nautical themed wedding was inspired by the happy couple's love of one of the most beautiful islands in the north east, Nantucket. Meg and Charles spend their summers the island and it was the only place they wanted to celebrate their marriage. The weather leading up to the festivities was dismal as Hurricane Joaquin and a Nor'easter were both heading up the coast. The ferries were beginning to get cancelled the day before, flights were delayed and figuring out how to get to the island we becoming a real challenge for guests and vendors.
However, on Saturday morning, the rain stopped, a little sun peeked through the clouds and the day went on with only minor glitches. Meg wore a gorgeous lace wedding dress by Pronovias and her mother's pearl bracelet. Charles and the groomsmen wore ties from Vineyard Vines and fun mix of unexpected colored socks. They were married at the lovely Our Lady of Isle Church in town and celebrated at the gorgeous White Elephant Hotel along the water. We visited the Cru restaurant on the wharf and took over the back room for their bridal party portraits since we couldn't photograph them outside. Being able to create several pairings in a small space is key to making their photos look amazing and every single person in their bridal party was amazing!
As we walked with the Bride and Groom through town, we stopped at the famous Compass Rose before I found the cutest little nook with hanging string lights and ivy along the walls. It felt like italy in Nantucket. Meg's sister and Charles' brother gave memorable speeches that had everyone, especially the bride and groom, shuffling between laughter and tears. It was one of the most touching ceremonies and celebrations I was able to photograph. Thank you so much for allowing me to document your wonderful wedding day!

We headed down to Cancun Mexico a few weeks ago to enjoy our first vacation in almost three years. We've been so busy finishing our home, running a business and catching up with family, that we haven't taken any time for ourselves. This winter weather has been unbearably cold (hello, polar vortex!) , so hopping on a plane to lay in the sun is just what we needed. We stayed at the Westin Lagunamar which had the most amazing infinity pool overlooking the crystal clear ocean. We went snorkeling off the coast of Isla Mujeres, drove to see the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza and spent lots of time on the soft white sand and swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea. Have you seen water this blue before? Such wonderful memories and since Mexico is so close, I hope we go back next year! xo, Jainé
