We started to blog about Patty and Jason’s wedding day and realized there was no way we’d be able to fit all of their gorgeous pictures into one blog update! This will be part one of two blog updates about Patty and Jason’s amazing destination wedding in Isle Mujeres, Mexico.
Patty and Jason had Tiffany from Sunhorse Weddings as their planner for their wedding at Zama Beach Club. Patty started her day getting ready at her villa which she had reserved with the help of Lisa of The Lost Oasis. Lisa also helped dad with his hotel reservations and helpful information about the island.
This might be one of mom’s favorite wedding hair accessories.
The gifts to the groomsmen were chucks for them to wear on the wedding day. The groom’s chucks had the wedding date personalized on it.
Patty gave Jason Superman cuff links as a wedding present. It was a special gift to remind Jason that his mom who had passed was with him that day, and Jason’s reaction upon opening the cuff links was so sweet.
Patty is a designer and Jason gave her a wedding present in a frog box that she had designed for Hallmark. How fun would it be to see one of your designs on the shelves at Hallmark!

Dad loved the Chinese wedding traditions that were included in the day. One of the main symbols of course being red as one of the wedding colors. Another fun tradition that the couple had was for the groom to come to the bride’s house to get her. According to custom, when he arrives he is met by the bride’s friends who will not let the bride go until the groom gives red packets of money and meets other requests. Jason arrived to see a “No Boys Allowed” sign hanging on the door, but that didn’t stop him from trying to peek. Patty’s bridesmaids and bridesman had Jason and his groomsmen dance as their task to see the bride.
Patty and Jason then had the Chinese Tea Ceremony where the couple serves the parents tea. Patty wore the same outfit her mom wore which made it more meaningful.
After the Tea Ceremony, Patty went back to her room to put on her wedding dress.

Before their ceremony, dad went around the island for pictures with the couple. When Dad woke up that morning, he had noticed a dark, cloudy sky. He was so worried! The sky stayed cloudy and it was a very windy day but thankfully the rain held off.
Patty really wanted some pictures on the cliffs by the water so they went there for a few pictures and the couple braved the strong winds!
This was just the start to the couple’s wedding day! Dad said the entire day was a lot of fun and filled with emotion. We can’t wait to share more!
