A Wedding on a Cruise

mexico cruise wedding

Caleb and Megan held their intimate destination wedding at sea on a cruise through the Mexican Riviera stopping along the way in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. Why a cruise for their wedding? We asked the couple to share their story with us. “We selected to get married on a cruise because we thought it would be fun to vacation with our families for a week. One family is from Ontario and the other family is from British Columbia, so we wanted to bring everyone together longer than a weekend. We chose the cruise because it didn’t limit us to one location and offered a greater vacation variety for everyone to enjoy.”

“We selected the Mexico ports because we felt that our guests would enjoy warm beaches in the winter season. We both were familiar with the cities and felt that the atmosphere and scenery was well suited to our wedding day. We also really wanted our photos in Cabo.”

“The cruise style wedding was special because it created a very unique and free atmosphere. We were able to get married with our family and friends off in the Pacific Ocean rather than a church style venue in our hometown. It also made for a tighter knit group, together for a longer period of time than the average wedding, which really brought everyone together.”

“The best moments from the day included the moment we were announced as husband and wife. The time our family and friends took over the back of the ship at dusk to socialize and take photos. The last real memorable time was us making our way to lovers beach for portrait photos on a small 12 passenger boat. The whole wedding party actually had to jump into the ocean up to the knees to make it to shore.”

“The last item we would like to share is a big thank-you to Green Autumn for photographing our wedding. They did an amazing job and went above and beyond to make our day and our week so great. We love all the photos and appreciate all the extra work they went through shooting a destination style wedding.”
