Taymond and Danielle's relationship seems to have been in the stars long before the couple ever set eyes on each other. Their mutual friend had attempted to get them together 6 years before they finally met. Their first meeting was not exactly love at first sight. Taymond unknowingly slammed a door in Danielle's face! At least he learned early on that this is a woman who's willing to stand up for herself.
When the couple decided to make their relationship permanent, they chose to get married in Cancun, Mexico at the all-inclusive Aventura Spa Palace Resort. A destination wedding was an easy decision for them and they exchanged vows surrounded by their closest friends and family.
The couple's color scheme and decor was reflective of their tropical destination. Danielle's eight bridesmaids looked stunning in floor length, hot-pink gowns. Danielle's flowers were non-tradtional and included beautifully shaped and elegantly arranged tropical flowers. The bright and uplifting hues carried on into the couple's indoor reception.
The couple exchanged vows under an enormous, traditionally thatched gazebo. They were surrounded by a soft-sanded lagoon in addition to their loved ones. The ceremony site was located in an ocean inlet where guests of the resort can snorkle, swim or kayak. The waves crashed on the rocks as the wedding guests looked on.
The couple took stock of their surroundings before the wedding and had a fun photo shoot around Cancun. Taymond and Danielle weren't afraid to get down and dirty to show thier love for each other. The happiness these two have is clear in all their photos.
Since the couple didn't meet 6 years earlier like their friend planned, it can be assumed that they were unknowingly preparing to spend a lifetime together. We wish Taymond and Danielle all the happiness in the world. Oh, and Taymond don't forget to be a gentleman and always hold open Danielle's door.
