A Romantic Wedding Story Amidst the Chaos of Hurricane Dean

Award-winning photographer Matt Adcock was able to capture a true love story while attending a destination wedding in Isla Holbox this past weekend. While thousands of tourists were being evacuated from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico due to the approaching Hurricane Dean, the wedding couple was determined to make the most of a bad situation, and found out the meaning of ‘playing it cool’ on their wedding day. The wedding group was forced to evacuate from Isla Holbox at the same time the bride and groom were supposed to walk down the aisle. Instead, the group headed to the small colonial town of Valladolid and had a spontaneous wedding and reception at Hotel Meson del Marques.

As the wedding industry becomes more focused on trivial and material goods like wedding cakes and parasols, the purpose of the celebration can sometimes get lost in the chaos of the peripheral details. This couple’s story is a heartwarming example of how to focus on what’s important and let go of the rest. Marriage presents us with the life-long challenge to work as a team through the twists and turns life throws at us all. We wish this couple all the best in their new life together.
