REPORTER: Alyssa Brown



If there’s one thing you instantly notice about W Punta de Mita upon arrival, it’s the colorful, bold and bright décor. Embracing the artistry of the indigenous Huichol people, the hotel’s many art installations and bold architectural flourishes give this resort a personality all its own. So, when we got wind of a wedding that embraced the décor and accented it through interesting lighting installations and bold floral décor, we had to hear more.

We caught up with photographer Ana Hinojosa  about the creative and lighthearted, celebratory spirit of this 3-day wedding weekend captured in her images. If you are on the hunt for a tropical destination with a waterfront view for your special day, this just might be the venue you've been searching for!

Who says weddings have to be on Saturday afternoons? This Oklahoma couple decided to do things a little differently and opted for Sunday morning nuptials at Spain Ranch, a 44-acre property outside of Tulsa with a contemporary barn, horse fences, a pond and bison roaming the tree-covered property.

The massive A-frame barn set a sunny, romantic tone for the a.m. ceremony, complemented by bridesmaids in a rainbow of pretty pastels (men wore suspenders and bowties) and a low-key brunch following the ceremony. If we know one thing to be true, it's that this white-out barn will give you the warm-and-fuzzies inside.

It's not every day we see a wedding with a train ride thrown into the timeline, but this Prague wedding grabbed our attention for more reasons than that. The Swedish couple brought their family and friends to a train station in Prague because they had a vision of exactly what they wanted their wedding day to be - minimalist, rustic, industrial, understated, and effortlessly cool.

Testament to going with what you love, this couple's wedding was not only gorgeous but an experience their traveling guests will remember for, like, ever. Here's the back story, straight from the talented duo behind the lens, Lukas & Eliska
