Rhonda and Ryan’s Wedding at Ocean Coral and Turquesa's wedding

The Couple

Rhonda and Ryan met in Kansas City where she is from. He just so happened to work at her favorite restaurant. Neither were originally looking to date, but they had similar interests and really enjoyed hanging out. Both cite that it was a random occurrence, but fate nonetheless. After many years together Ryan proposed uniquely enough during a performance by his band Sinister. It was a New Year’s Eve performance and after the countdown at midnight he got down on one knee and proposed. Rhonda said, “I was completely and totally shocked.”

The Planning

The couple had always discussed that if they got married, it shouldn’t be a big or lavish wedding. It just didn’t fit them. They wanted a memorable experience, with their closest loved ones and friends, and also something that was easy. That’s how they landed with Andrea at Destify.

Together they went through many resort options and locations before choosing Ocean Coral and Turquesa Resort in Cancun, Mexico. It felt like the perfect fit and the pictures were gorgeous. Once in contact with the wedding department, planning was a simple and easy process.

The Wedding

Once the couple got to the resort they met with their coordinator for a brief 20-minute meeting to finalize plans. The couples’ package had just about everything they wanted, but they added some extra bouquets and flowers. On the day of the wedding, Rhonda had the coordinator meet with her as she got ready, and they revamped some last minute plans so that none of the guests (or Ryan) saw her before she walked down the aisle.

They held their ceremony at the resort’s beautiful gazebo at sunset. Afterward, they had a photo shoot with their photographer. Their package allowed for the newlyweds to host both a cocktail hour and a dinner reception at the resort. Everyone took full advantage of the delicious food and unlimited drinks. Their 23 guests stayed anywhere from 3 to 10 days enjoying their very own vacations while the couple enjoyed their honeymoon.

Looking Back

The couple loved how carefree the entire process was. Rhonda’s advice is to trust the wedding department and your agent. Andrea was there with quick response time and helped with a small language barrier at some moments. The process was professional and there were no worries, just an amazing time had by all.

We just had to show up and live in paradise for 10 days.
