If you’re thinking of a destination wedding, you will have most likely made your decision by time you’re done fawning over Max Wanger’s photos. Brittany + Rich had taken a vacay to Tulum a few years ago, so the second the idea for a destination wedding came up, all their Mexico memories came to mind. They didn’t want anything too formal or stuffy, but classy and organic, which is a pretty perfect fit for Hotel Esencia’s stunning grounds. (Btw, we’re well aware that the word stunning doesn’t even do this place justice! Gah.)
Brittany wore a Vera Wang gown with Chantilly lace and appliquéd corded rose lace accents.

Brittany says, Our wedding took nine months to plan and we sincerely enjoyed every minute of it. The one piece of advice we’d give to those planning a wedding is to hire a planner. We decided to hire wedding planners to help us manage everything from beginning to end and were extremely fortunate to have worked with the best in the business.
For tropical greenery, Moon Canyon Design mixed up local foliage.
We were huge fans of Max Wanger’s work long before we decided to get married. His style is one of the many things that makes his work so interesting and beautiful to look at that you almost forget you’re looking at wedding photos.
Cheers to the happy couple!
