High school sweethearts, Jon and Leah, have been visiting Cancun, Mexico since they were 18. Scroll down a bit, and you can read the rest of their sweet love story. 

Once they were engaged, Cancun was the obvious choice for their wedding celebration, and they started to plan. As we all know, the first step in destination wedding planning is to seek out help to plan the party of a lifetime. They found unique and stylish wedding planner, Love On Top Weddings to help orchestrate their glamorous destination wedding by the beach. 

Honeymoon Potential  Spot

Next step, find a venue! The couple selected the ever so luxurious Nizuc Resort and Spa, located in the secluded enclave of Punta Nizuc. This ultra-glam resort is less than a 15-minute drive from Cancun International Airport. Not only is the resort wedding-worthy, but it also is a fantastic honeymoon destination.

Enjoy the rest of Jon and Leah's glamorous Cancun destination wedding by the beach, all photographed by Melissa Marshall. I also highly suggest you take a peek at her Instagram. The wedding inspiration is beyond dreamy.

Love Story

From the bride -Jonathan and I met Senior year of High School when we were just 18 years old. To give you some background, We went to a large public High School with about 4,000 students. One day, I was gossiping with some girlfriends about this “new cute guy” in my History class. A girl named Sasha overheard the conversation and said “are you talking about Jonathan Fuller?, He is my best friend. I will introduce you!” and that she did.

From the beginning of our relationship, we discovered that our lives were far more intertwined and connected than we could have ever imagined. We discovered we were in the same preschool class at the Nierman preschool (named after my family). Jonathan also remembers seeing me on Love’s beach in Cabo when I was 13 years old. Throughout our lives, our paths have crossed multiple times and each time they have crossed it seems to have symbolized our core values that we share together as a couple. Meeting at the Nierman preschool symbolizes our Judaism and and commitment to the Jewish faith and Community. 

Jonathan seeing me on the beach in Mexico symbolizes our love for Mexican culture and of course the ocean! Since we were 18, we come back to Cancun every year, so it made sense to get married here!
