Somewhere between the earth and the sky sits a few places that have almost magical properties. A place where it becomes so dreamy that the lines of real life and the dream world become a bit more blurred. Cancun is one of those, and photographer Isabella Rodriquez set out to create some ethereal inspiration from the place where she herself was born.

from the photographer, Isabella Rodriguez“Isla Blanca is a little piece of heaven located in the outskirts of Cancún, México. Walking into this fairytale-like place was a definitely a jaw-dropping moment for me. I collaborated with an incredible team to create an editorial that would reflect the magic of the Caribbean Sea. Sunsets in Cancún are always stunning, but I could tell this was going to be an unforgettable day. We got the most beautiful light! The water reflected the sky almost perfectly, making our bride look as if she was almost flying. Our bride has a nostalgic and romantic mind; she treasures everything reminiscent of eras once lived. She is wearing a Needle & Thread lace gown, beautifully designed with floral motifs and tulle, and a delicate Twigs & Honey mantilla with a soft gold edge. Brides Cancún created an elegant updo and kept our bride’s makeup light and natural. Her breathtaking headpiece by El Taller is a paradox. Though it’s composed of small leaves and flowers, it’s inspired by ancient goddesses and nature. Just like our bride, delicate yet strong. Wedding calligrapher María, from Esperanza Atelier, created a stunning calligraphy set titled “Bleu Ocean” for our bride. With gray-blue and off white shades, the gold ink used for our bride’s special day was the perfect touch for her wedding details. From her gorgeous ring by Olive Alons, to her exotic bouquet by Pure Love Floral Design, to her eye-catching earrings by Kate Spade, every detail was perfect for this ethereal and dreamlike moment.

I was born in Cancún, and even though I’ve lived in other places throughout my life, there’s just something so magical about this place. Whether you enter the depths of the Mayan jungle or take a walk through its white-sand beaches, everything about Cancún exudes beauty and adventure. This bridal editorial is very dear to me. When a place means so much to you, it becomes part of your soul. And that’s what I’d like to share with you, a little piece of my heart.”
