Dinorah + Marc
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Dinorah and I grew up together, so getting a chance to help her with the most important day of her life meant the world to me. She is one of the most loving, honest and spirited people I know and it was amazing seeing her wed her true love – Marc!
Dinorah and Marc wanted a fun and laid back wedding where they didn’t have to stress and worry about any details so they went the destination route and chose the beautiful Riviera Maya in Mexico. The entire weeding weekend was a blast and just what they wanted! Lots of tequila, dancing and photo ops. Stacy Sodolak from SMS Photography flew down with me and got to witness the girls I grew up with first hand and she fit right in. She also captured D and Marc perfectly and their personalities are evident in every shot!
The beach side ceremony was intimate and heartfelt. The officiant was the same man who married our friend, Patty, several years prior, so that added a familiar tone. Then guests were greeted with champagne at the cocktail reception before the dinner was kicked off with festive mariachis. Dinorah loves her mariachis and would drag us to all different Mexican restaurants to hear her favorite tunes. The coursed dinner was the finest Mexico had to offer and the dessert was to die for – yummy chocolaty goodness!
Then the dancing began – and WOW! We all grew up dancing together and we all still had the moves! Add in a couple of D’s friends who were professional dancers and it was taken to a whole different level! I have never seen a bride flipped so many times. All the favorites were played and we danced until they kicked us out (old habits die hard)!
Dinorah, my friend, I love you. Thank you for letting me help you plan this amazing day (like you could have stopped me). Marc – take care of our girl or you will have a lot of angry ladies hunting you down…and we are from Kingsville so we can hunt. ;)
