Destination weddings are one of our faves! And, let's be honest, in January, we're all ready for a little sunshine in our lives! C & L had such a lovely ceremony, it's making us ready to hop on a plane to Mexico right now! These two are no strangers to love abroad! They met studying in Spain!
About the couple...
Carlin and Lawrence met their first week studying abroad in Seville, Spain in the Fall of 2006. They spent the first four months of their relationship traveling through Europe together before returning home to their respective universities. After finishing school in the South, Carlin graduated and moved out to California to be with Lawrence and to pursue job opportunities. One year later, Carlin and Lawrence moved to New York to pursue graduate school. Lawrence is a practicing real estate attorney for a medium sized New York law firm while Carlin works as a Registered Nurse on a post-surgical unit at a hospital in Manhattan. They spend their free time exploring the city, trying new restaurants, watching movies, hanging out with friends, and spending time with their beagle/doxen, Astro.
In May of 2013, they decided to take a trip to Costa Rica. At the beginning of the trip, after a morning of ziplining, they hiked down to a secluded waterfall where Lawrence proposed. However, unbeknownst to Lawrence, Carlin had also been planning on proposing during the trip! After returning home, they decided to get married in Riviera Maya, Mexico because they had visited the area before and loved the location for a destination wedding to celebrate with friends and family.
