Same-Sex Destination Wedding in Mexico

We’re headed just south to Mexico for today’s intimate wedding. Kimberly and Dwan chose Playa del Carmen for their destination wedding not simply because it’s beautiful (And, well, who doesn’t want to take a trip to sunny Mexico!?) but because the country was accepting of the same-sex marriage celebration they were looking for. We all know that same-sex marriage is not yet accepted throughout the United States and the conflicting view points on this issue do extend past our borders. But lucky for any of you planning a same-sex destination wedding there’s places like the Palace Resort group that are ready and waiting to help you celebrate! Time to get inspired by Kimberly and Dwan’s oh-so lovely and romantic nuptials, and the photos that Photos In Cancun captured of it!

In the couple’s own words, “The resort size was perfect, small enough to find everyone and connect during the trip and big enough for those couples who wanted some time for themselves.  It brought our family together in a way that no other wedding could, they are already planning a family reunion!”playa del carmen destination weddingcancun destination weddingbrown and white wedding cakedestination wedding in mexico
