Destination wedding

From Shining Light Photography: The wedding took place at The Beloved Hotel in Playa Mujeres, Mexico. Karly and Corey decided instead of having a huge wedding back in their home state of Kentucky, that they would take about 25 of their closest friends and immediate family members to a beautiful resort for a week of lounging around together before getting married on the beach!

Personal touches

There were personal touches everywhere- from the hand-sewn, "Mrs. Craig" hat Haley made Karly, to the comfy getting-ready dresses from ASOS and Free People + the stunning, beaded BHLDN bridesmaid dresses, and even to the sweet thumbprint necklaces of Karly's late father, Jeff, worn around her wrist.This day was filled with more than just good taste, but the sweetest moments between family and personal touches which were really important in bringing bits of what felt like "home" into their special day so far away.

The ceremony took place on the beach later that afternoon and concluded with a mini cocktail hour, courtesy of the personalized wooden boat/cooler made for Karly and Corey. The couple then proceeded to take full advantage of their amazing surroundings as we began roaming around the resort grounds and beach for some stunning portraits, soaking in the amazing day they had just had alongside a unbelievable sunset!
