We have a truly special treat for you all today — not only are we sharing the beautiful destination wedding of Juliana and Marty, but we’ve also got their rehearsal dinner to share as well! Geoff Duncan Photography took the reins behind the camera for both days, which were loaded with entertainment, good food, and breathtaking views.

From the bride, Juliana: We wanted to stick to the traditional Mexican theme. Lots of dancing with great food, drinks and music. I really wanted all those who I care about the most to have a wonderful time in a beautiful setting. I love these Mexican tablecloths so we decided we would use them for the dinner tables and coordinate all the colors involved… we used every color. Blue, green, red, orange, pink, yellow, purple. My mother already owned a bunch so we borrowed some of my aunt’s and she stain guarded all of them. She also DIYed the gift bags and water bottles. The gift bags were incredible. My mom went to the market in Mexico and bought the bags and then filled them with the wedding program, Texas Trash, the middle size Herradura tequila, two glass tequila glasses with the cactus in the middle and water bottles with our names on them.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? You know, we didn’t do this but I wish we did — since my wedding my friends have started a photo share on icloud or photocircle. I think it’s a great way to see your wedding from different perspectives and its fun to see how people enjoyed the day when it.s a destination wedding.

Wedding Music:
Bridal Party Processional: “A Thousand Years,” Christina Perri
Bridal Processional: Wagner’s Wedding March and Pacelbel’s Canon in D
Recessional: “Here Comes the Sun,” The Beatles
First Dance: “How Long Will I Love You,” Ellie Goulding
We combined our first dance with our father daughter dance and mother and groom dance. Marty and I dance for the first 45 seconds and then our parents cut in. I didn’t want this part to be very long so we tried to do it all in one song.
