Real Wedding ~ Elizabeth and Gordon

Elizabeth and Gordon chose the picturesque island of Careyes in Mexico for their beautiful destination wedding with an "East meets West" theme. Elizabeth is of Vietnamese descent and Gordon is Irish-Canadian. With that, their event featured many cultural traditions to honor their respective heritages.

The wedding day began with a traditional Buddhist ceremony followed by a barefoot beach wedding. Lovely Elizabeth wore a stunning asymmetrical gown designed by Vera Wang and made a grand entrance to their seaside nuptials escorted by four men carrying her on a platform. Following the ceremony, Elizabeth and Gordon released 88 endangered turtles that had hatched earlier that day. According to the Buddhist religion, the release signifies that the past is gone and there is only the future ahead.

Don't miss the images of their breezy, open-air reception with a spectacular view of the sea. We love the twinkling lights strung canopy-style above the tables and the chic simplicity of their settings.

Congratulations to Elizabeth and Gordon and many thanks to BLR Photography for sharing these amazing images!
