Dreams Tulum is a Picture Perfect Wedding Destination

Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa is very excited to be included in the January/February issue of Bridal Guide! We took you behind the scenes this summer while the shoot was taking place now we want to give you a sneak peek of the finished product!

Today the Bridal Guide’s Fashion Editor, Naima DiFranco, shared the wonderful experience she and the fashion department had at the resort while shooting the magazine spreads. She explains that the food was ‘divine’ and that the resort is a ‘picturesque, relaxing environment- ideal for destination weddings’.

We are so proud of our Wedding Coordinator, Landy Cahum, for helping to plan the details. She was able to share her expertise about flowers, table décor and wedding cakes to make the shoot even more special. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of the magazine to see the full spreads!

Bridal Guide Photo Shoot at Dreams Tulum: Day Three

The Bridal Guide editorial photo shoot concluded with some truly incredible shots at the neighboring eco-archeological park, Xcaret. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the park, the whimsical bridal looks that were captured appeared like they were right out of a fairytale.

The first shot was by a beautiful cenote (natural sinkhole), with water so clear it acted almost like a mirror.

This video shows the complete Cenote:

The next look was inspired by the Mayan culture, with a shot in a traditional canoe. The look is very unique.

We then held a shoot with a flock of flamingos. They got a little camera shy before the model arrived, so the shoot was done on a closed “set”. Here’s a sneak peak at the model flamingos.

Our next supporting models were a bit more cooperative.

Our second boat was bright, flowery and totally girly!

The final look featured an amazing hairpiece made from Birds of Paradise. This flower was the perfect choice as it is tropical and captivating.

Thanks for following along the last three days of behind the scenes coverage ofhte Bridal Guide photo shoot with the Mexico Tourism Board and Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa. We cannot wait to see the stories that develop from all three days of images! We’ll keep you posted as the phots are published in Bridal Guide Magazine so you can experience the finished product!

Bridal Guide Photo Shoot at Dreams Tulum: Day Two

It was another stunning day of shooting at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa! The editorial and creative teams at Bridal Guide Magazine are so creative! Take a look at how they paired fashion, location and accessories to create looks that are totally glam…with a retro vibe.

Beach bombshell. The lifeguard stand was the perfect prop for this 50’s style gown. Very fun and flirty.

This shot included a classic all-American look with red shoes, white dress, blue pool and an old fashioned bottle of Coca-Cola.

A stroll down the aisle…or shuffle board court.

This shot had a very “Alice in Wonderland” feel with the resort’s oversized chess board as the setting. And notice the shoes…no bride’s look is complete without a pair of Dreams slippers!

Everyone was in love with this dress…and the look is very fitting for a destination wedding.

That’s a wrap for day two!

For the 3rd day of the shoot, the Mexico Tourism Board arranged for us to shoot at Xcaret (Riviera Maya’s top eco archaeological park). The theme for the looks will be very whimsical, and we are so excited to see how it turns out because the model will be posing with a flock of flamingos. Let’s hope they aren’t divas on the set! Check back tomorrow to see….
