Mayan Ruins wedding ceremony: Kelly + Joseph (part 1)

July 28, 2010

Yesterday, we gave a little sneak peek at the before and after shots of Kelly and Joseph’s wedding. Most couples only have the pleasure of creating one day of their dreams, but these two decided one wasn’t enough – so they had a ceremony in Mexico, and then one back in Portland to seal the deal.

First we’re gonna look at their Mexican wedding ON the actual Mayan Ruins, and later, we’ll show you Portland.

Kelly is a super crafter (and a photographer), so with the help of friends and family, she included some incredible little crafty details and touches like fabric corsages for the guests, rock garden centerpieces (with rocks Kelly has collected since she was six years old), a handmade cake topper and more poms than anyone would know what to do with.

During the ceremony, family members stood in a circle blessing the couple by telling stories of love and marriage. The couple also had a collaged book of love that held their rings and a single feather, which they released into the ocean following the ceremony.

How’s that for a location?  So beautiful.

The heart-shaped glasses are a completely adorable touch!

Now that’s one stunning wedding.  Stay tuned for Part 2 – The Oregon Wedding!
