Nikki and Kelly: Romantic Beach Wedding

Villa Verano, Hopkins

Not all couple’s can appreciate the “alternative luxuries” that Belize has to offer. You won’t find any chain restaurants, all-inclusive resorts, or high speed Internet in Belize, but you will find beautiful un-touched beaches, and privacy that cannot be matched.

We were truly in love with Nikki and Kelly’s vision for their destination wedding in Belize, and were excited to see how it was perfectly captured by Leonardo Melendez. The wanted their celebration to feel romantic, but still capture the essence of the Caribbean. We tried to capture the pure beauty that Hopkins had to offer, while partnering it with a romantic and modern feel. The stunning bride chose a dress that not only matched her wedding style, but looked spectacular on the beach. Coupled with tropical white flowers, and a jeweled headband, she was the perfect example of a destination bride. The couple tied the knot under a four-post bamboo arch, set just outside the water.

Their reception followed pool-side, with views of the Caribbean sunset on the sea. Chef Kuylen prepared a custom menu that can only be described as inspired Belizean, and our bartenders put tropical spins on classic concoctions.

A beach themed cake was cut, and DJ DZL had the entire wedding party dancing the night away. If we ever need inspiration for an exceptional beach wedding, we look back at Nikki and Kelly.
