BLAIR AND DEVIN: WEDDINGS AT THE NOW JADE RIVIERA CANCUN
Whenever we meet newly engaged couples, we love discovering their stories. Whether it’s a nerve-wracking first date or a friendship that organically blossomed into something wonderful, we recognize that each relationship has something truly unique; yet they share a commonality in possessing no shortage of love.
We had the honour of learning more about the story of Blair and Devin, one of our beautiful wedding clients here at Weddings by Escapes. This year, will be saying their “I Dos” at the stunning NOW Jade Riviera Cancun in Mexico!
Here’s a little insight into the hows and whys behind their destination wedding:
On their story: We resided in the same small town for majority of our late-teen years, in spite of working with Devin’s father for nearly a decade, our paths didn’t cross until we had both moved to Winnipeg for school. We later met at a bar with mutual friends and learned how close we had come to meeting multiple times in our home town through different events and mutual friends. From that point on we were inseparable and it has been 6 years.
On making the decision on having a Destination Wedding: We were fortunate enough to attend one of our friend’s weddings in Mexico two years ago and enjoyed the experience. We were very excited at the thought of sharing such a beautiful place with all our loved ones. As far as pricing is concerned it is more feasible financially to get the extras we would want with a destination wedding as opposed to having one here at home.
On choosing the NOW Jade: The process of deciding which resort was very easy as Devin and myself actually got engaged at the NOW Jade Riviera Cancun. The staff were all so accommodating and the service was impeccable. They assisted Devin in booking a secluded dinner on the beach so he could pop the question. The surf and turf dinner was phenomenal. So we will be heading back there next year to say our “I dos.” Choosing any other resort was not an option.
On their Wedding Vision: As far as our vision in regards to our wedding , we are hoping to keep it a simple ceremony on the beach as well as the reception with a light up dance floor , assisting us in dancing the night away under the stars. We honestly are more concerned with ensuring our guests have the absolute best experience possible as it is their vacation as well and with the resort chosen we know they will take great care of us and our loved ones.
Our advice for other couples: If we could give any advice to couples planning a destination wedding , it would be to be sure that you find an amazing travel planner (Our Destination Weddings Specialist, Dori has been beyond amazing). Aside from getting support close to home, be sure that the resort you choose has the support team that you need as well. We had a little taste of what the romance team at the NOW Jade Riviera Cancun can do during our last trip. The resort has an amazing and efficient team. It has been a pleasure to go through this process with them.
