A scenic Cancun beach made the perfect backdrop for Sara and Ifte's union! They exchanged vows under a pretty draped coral color mandap in the exclusive 5-star Iberostar Paraiso Beach, a breathtaking beachfront ceremony wedding planned to perfection thanks to Red Carpet Affairs whose planning team collaborated with the newlyweds to bring their vision to life and set it in motion! Raja Ifte set some major style goals with an elegant three-piece blue tuxedo from Suit Supply and used a pretty rose boutonniere that accented the look. Our lovely Maharani also added some blooms to her look and carried a whimsical bouquet that will make you swoon! Carlos Elizondo captured it all, from the heartwarming rites of the ceremony in this magical tropical scenario up to the special Mariachi performance that serenaded the happy couple! Peruse through the gallery for some more perfect beach wedding inspo!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ifty and I have known each for a few years but were more acquaintances. I am a wedding planner and we had done a few events together and knew each other on a personal level. One day we went out for a bite, our one dinner turned into hours of just sitting and talking about everything. I knew he was the one after our first official date. After our dinner, we decided to walk over to the beach (it was a beautiful summer night) we went to the beach around 10:30 pm, around 11:30 pm it started pouring! We ran for shelter, but as we were running towards the covered area we stopped for a minute in the pouring rain and stared at each other. In that minute I just knew, that he was going to be the man that I spent the rest of my life with. I knew that I wanted to enjoy every single thunderstorm, every single summer shower with him.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Walking down the altar and locking eyes with him. I remember being very nervous walking down the aisle and as soon as I saw him, he started to laugh which gave me all the confidence to walk down the aisle and smile as I was walking.
Stay tuned for the magical reception!
