Tania + Rafee hired us for their Tulum destination wedding last year, and we assumed, like most destination weddings it would be a small, intimate affair. This was not the case. A huge, fun group of friends and family from all over the US and Puerto Rico came into town to celebrate this awesome couple coming together. The minute we met Tania we felt like we’d known her for years. Her warmth and sincerity are infectious and her beautiful smile is an outward reflection of the kind of person she is on the inside. Rafee is her perfect compliment. At first he seemed like a quiet, serious guy but after hanging out with him for a couple hours his hilarious, dry sense of humor shined through. During our portrait session, he had Tania laughing and smiling the entire time.
The ceremony took place along the beautiful shoreline of the Gran Bahia Principe Resort. There is something really unique about the sunset in Cancun. The light changes from the most beautiful gold into soft pastels, giving the ceremony a gorgeous glow. As Tania was led by her parents down the aisle, she was overcome with emotion. You could see her joy to be marrying the love of her life. You could also tell she found calmness and comfort in Rafee throughout the ceremony. It was beautiful to witness. Once they pronounced husband and wife the party began. They walked down the aisle and were greeted with two celebratory glasses of champagne… it was party time.
Once the celebration began, this crew turned into the salsa dancing masters. From the welcoming party until the reception, this group tore up the dance floor. It wasn’t only the excitement of being at a Tulum destination wedding, but the joy of just being together. The speeches given by family members were some of the best we’ve heard. Each person spoke about Tania and Rafee in the best way possible. We could feel that everyone felt honored to be able to celebrate these two. Feel the joy and happiness in the photos and video of this Tulum destination wedding. To a lifetime of love between Tania +Rafee!
