Real Weddings United States Weddings | By:cocomelody

Can you say breathtaking? We fell in love with this wedding as much as we love the sunset view by the sea! Alexis & Carlos chose to say I Do in Destin, FL. There was no special theme but a sweet celebration that represented their amazing love for each other! Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?

Don’t stress about everything being perfect. 9 times out of 10 it won’t be. On my wedding day it rained the whole day and with it being a beach wedding we moved it inside. A few days later we were able to take our pictures on the beach.

Q: How did you meet? And where did he propose?

We met at a cinco de mayo party through mutual friends. It wasn’t until 3 occasions later that we decided to actually hang out one on one. 

He proposed at a family barbecue that he set up. Somehow he was able to slyly set up hundreds of tea lights and rose petals in our backyard where he asked me to be his wife in front of both of our families. It was a really sweet moment.


Q: Did you enjoy the wedding planning process? Why or why not?

I didn’t enjoy my wedding process only because everything was done via email with my wedding planner. On my wedding day things didn’t go as planned (I.e. the weather) so things were very chaotic and random.

Q: What was your hubby’s reaction when he first saw you on your big day?

When my husband saw me he teared up and instantly I felt everything was okay. The stress of the day no longer mattered.


Q: What did you love most about your Cocomelody dress?

What I loved most about my wedding dress was the way I was able to customize it to my body without actually seeing it first. It fit beautifully and made me feel like a beautiful bride.

Q: What do you think about Cocomelody and the customer service?

Cocomelody’s customer service exceeded my expectations. I ordered my dress in the wrong production time but I was easily able to fix it, and got my dress way before my wedding.
