When a couple decides to get married they are fully aware that marriage is not just a legal
contract. It is a lifetime commitment they need to treasure, protect and respect. But before they could
be together forever, first thing is first, they have to go through a wedding ceremony. Even though a
wedding is only a usual ceremony “ceremony” for some people, couples have to go through the
planning of this special event just like Carly and Oliver did to achieve the wedding of their dreams.
Carly and Oliver are one of the couples who prefer a destination wedding over a church
wedding. Well, there is nothing wrong if they want a different ambiance; the wedding only happens
once in every person’s life so why go and spoil it, especially if the place is as beautiful as Cancun.
Cancun is a Mexican city located at the Yucatan peninsula that boards the Caribbean Sea. The
place is known for its breathtaking beaches, numerous resorts, and its energetic nightlife. The city itself
is made of two districts, the traditional downtown area of El Centro and Zona Hotelera which is a long
beachfront where people can find high rise hotels, night clubs, shops and different restaurants. Because
of its citizens energetic nightlife it has been a famed destination for college students during their spring
Although, Cancun has earned its reputation for being a party hotspot, it has more to it than
meets the eye. The seas of Cancun have different stories to tell; it is a home to a number of cenotes or
commonly known as underwater caves, which makes the place more unforgettable and romantic for
weddings. Aside from that, couples getting married in Cancun have the opportunity to explore different
Mayan monuments and ruins. While their guests can shop in the luxury boutiques in line with the hotel
district, after a tiring day of exploring, everyone can enjoy the sunset while sitting on the beach’s white
sand as the perfect scenario to end a day in paradise.
Maybe, that is what Carly and Oliver planned when they chose Cancun for their destination
wedding; this is a very genius decision because their wedding video looks really beautiful with Cancun’s
white sand and calm sea as the breathtaking background of their wedding footage.
Going back to Carly and Oliver’s wedding, hearing their speech and vows, many would agree if
we say that Oliver’s first words such as “Today there are three words stronger than I love you, today I
stand before you to say I choose you” in his vows are really heartwarming. As a woman, it is a great
honor to be chosen by the man we truly love. Carly is very lucky when Oliver chose her to share his
happiness with and to grow old with forever, for there are some who already lost their hopes of having a
happily ever after.
Vice versa, Carly’s speech has truly struck Oliver’s heart. Because the truth is, girls really rely on
a man as their source of power especially when they’re feeling down with the thinking that they are not
good enough. When Carly said, “You are the only one who can calm me down and cheer me up”, it only
implies that their relationship has a strong foundation of friendship and trust. As they rely on each
other’s ups and downs, they also ensure to build happy memories with each other.
As for the wedding ceremony, the venue of the wedding is really fantastic. Doing the wedding
on the beach side is really ingenious. They did not only showcase the beauty of the place, but they also
highlighted the nirvana in the faces of the guests. In addition to this, the ambiance boosted the
exquisiteness of the bride during her walk with her dad along the aisle and when the couple exchanged
vows with each other.
Oliver and Carly also made the right decision with regards to their wedding reception. There
throwback pictures placed on every table is just perfect for such a memorable occasion. As they go on to
the new chapter of their lives, their friends and family can have a short moment remembering the days
when they are young and together. It has given the reception a more personalized touch and it also
provided the guests with a brief background on how happy their relationship truly is just by looking at
the pictures. Aside from their throwback photos, it is really admirable when they included the written
lyrics of their favorite song as part of their table arrangement; the same song was also used for their
wedding video song.
Because the wedding took place at dusk, the people invited to their wedding surely enjoyed the
view of the sunset. Who would not? Sunset might be a sign that dark is about to take over the place but
for them, the sunset is the conclusion of a very hectic day or a sign of another day to create an
unforgettable moment to look forward to.
As the reception takes place in the same venue, the guests were very relaxed as they do not
need to travel to a different location. The resort they have chosen designed the whole place perfectly as
they fill the place with white and sky blue as the couple’s color motif. The place of the reception looked
very elegant at night. With the cold breeze coming from the sea and the way the ocean sparkled under
the moon totally gave Carly and Oliver’s wedding reception a romantic and passionate ambiance. With
the couple entertaining their guests and with Carly playing the organ, there are no doubts that they
treated each other as friends long before they came to the decision to wed.
Well, even though their guests know that they have a strong foundation as friends, the couple
could not hide their sweetness as they kiss most of the time on their video and the way they looked at
each other. Their eyes are both sparkling and smiling which is a sign of a blissful life together. Aside from
that, the speeches they both wrote have come from deep within their hearts due to the fact that they
are both emotional while they delivered it.
Over all, Carly and Oliver’s wedding is a very inspirational one as was clearly depicted all
throughout the wedding video. It makes the audience want to fall in love all over again. With Carly and
Oliver’s amazing wedding video, it should be a lesson to all the couples planning their wedding to hire an
experienced professional wedding videographer who could deliver the same output as theirs. Because
the wedding video itself has shown the viewers how Carly and Oliver cherish each other; and everything
about it is outstanding and worth treasuring for the rest of their lives.
