A Jungle Wedding in Tulum Mexico

After finding a perfect Tulum wedding venue online, they knew the second they stepped into Kima Tulum, it was the one. They planned their wedding from the states, with the help of a wedding planner in Mexico, and their boho, jungle wedding (with a side of tequila) was brought to life.

So, you U-Haul’d. Tell us about falling in love. 

We’d only been dating for three months, a long distance between Montana and Colorado when Covid meant we needed to move quickly. At 31, Jenna found herself living in her new girlfriend’s Mom’s house – so when we say we U-Haul, we mean it. 

It turned out to be the best, truly. We got to know each other quickly, and Parry’s family accepted Jenna and took her in like their own. 

We moved to Tahoe, California, about six months later, and then Jenna proposed. 

Give us the details on planning your jungle wedding in Mexico

We knew that a jungle in Tulum was the perfect spot for our wedding day. We even invited 95 of our loved ones to come and celebrate with us. 

We discovered our Tulum wedding venue via an Instagram search for ‘Tulum weddings.’ The second we stepped foot on the property, we both knew it was exactly what we were looking for. 

Communicating with our hotel in Mexico to bring everything to life was challenging, so we had a wedding planner in Mexico help us every step of the way. 

How did you find a wedding photographer? 

Our wedding photographer is our friend from Tahoe, who shot our surprise engagement shoot. She came to Tulum with us and did a boudoir shoot at our wedding venue, our rehearsal dinner, and our wedding. 

We are so lucky to call her our friend. Our videographer is based in Cacun, Mexico and was recommended to us through our wedding planner. We trusted our wedding planner and went with her because of her experience with our planner. Word of mouth is everything!

Everyone stayed at an all-inclusive resort on the beach in Tulum. We were there for a week, hosted a silent disco and took everyone out on a 25ft catamaran for a day. 

The wedding venue was a 30-minute shuttle into the jungle. 

We got ready separately and chose to have a first look. Parry was on one side of the property in a bungalow with her girls, and Jenna was with hers in one of the other rooms on the property. 

After photos, guests were greeted with shots of tequila before they took their seats for the ceremony. We decided to walk down the aisle together, with Parry’s Dad and Jenna’s twin brother by our side. 

Led by Parry’s sister, Bry, it was an incredible ceremony.

Parry carried her wife back down the aisle, and we celebrated well into the night. There was a churro cart for dessert and a photobooth that just added to the fun. 

It all went by too quickly, and it truly was the most perfect day.
