Today’s editorial, photographed by Elizabeth Medina Photographic Artisans and styled by BAKU Events, is such a breath of fresh air! It’s overflowing with vibrant colors drawn from Yucatan, Mexico, and it seamlessly combines old and new in a fashionable way that’s perfect for a destination wedding.
From Elizabeth Medina – “Over the last few years Yucatan, Mexico has become known as a unique wedding destination. It is very different from the better known and more touristy resort areas of Mexico. Yucatan and its capital, Merida, are culturally rich with unique blend of Mayan culture and colonial Spanish influence. Local cuisine and architecture also include French influences from the time period when it was more practical to travel to France by sea than to Mexico City over land.
Yucatan’s spectacular haciendas were once the base of the local economy, growing ‘green gold,’ the sisal plants that were used to produce rope before the introduction of plastics. Today many of these elegant and colorful haciendas have been restored and serve as amazing destination wedding venues.
This very colorful and creative styled shoot was a great opportunity to get inspired by Mexico’s many vibrant colors and a rustic, historic location while still channeling a modern, travel-inspired vibe.”
