Cancun, Mexico

Located near Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Cancun is a Caribbean paradise well-deserving of its reputation as one of the country’s most visited places. The best time to visit Cancun is between November and March, so it’s a perfect wedding destination if you’re looking to escape the cold, uncomfortable winter months in the United States.

Bryan and Rachel got married at the all-inclusive Royalton CHIC Suites Cancun Resort & Spa. They had an unbelievable ceremony on the hotel’s Sky Terrace, overlooking the Caribbean Sea. If you prefer to stay closer to the ground, walk down the aisle on Royalton’s Sunrise or Sunset Terrace, or even directly on the beach under a gazebo. For an all-around glamorous, personalized and worry-free experience, the resort offers a number of wedding packages including everything from professional coordination, a grand ceremony, dinner and cake, to a spa discount for you and your loved ones. You can even take advantage of custom add-on experiences if you want to give your wedding a traditional, Mexican touch. And, because it’s Cancun, you’ll know the after-party will be a night to remember.

If you can take some time to explore the surrounding areas, you’ll quickly see why the Yucatan Peninsula offers much more than luxury beach resorts. Not far from Cancun, about a two-hour drive inland, you can visit the Cenote Suytun near Valladolid. The semi-open cenote is also a beautiful photo spot with a crystal blue swimming hole and natural light illuminating the cave. Could it get any more romantic?

 

If this couple looks familiar, it’s because Rachel and Bryan met on The Bachelorette TV show, and decided to tie the knot in a private ceremony for close friends and family only.  Rachel now works as a reporter for Extra, and also is frequently seen on shows like The View, ESPN, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, and many more.
