The model couple, Brijet and Dre, are actually engaged in real life! While taking the photos, they couldn’t stop gushing over all the beautiful details: vibrant spring florals, custom liquid art on cocktails, custom cookies, charcuterie cones, a vintage Volkswagen bus, fire dancers, and much more!

Photographer, Kaci Lou, who captured this beautiful display of love in the jungle, tells us Brijet and Dre couldn’t have imagined a dreamier way to say “I do.”

“They probably would have made it official right then and there if their families were present,” Kaci says.

The “wedding day” started with a delicious breakfast of smoothies and pancakes at La Zebra Beach. Then, the crew spent time admiring the beautiful Ven a la Luz – the famous Tulum woman sculpture. Shortly after, the couple decided to take a quick dip at the Airbnb and then got ready together.

Once at the hidden arches of the Arcadia, a sense of a quiet, simple pleasure fell over the couple.

“These hidden arches are found after an off-road adventure deep into the mystical Tulum jungle,” Kaci explains.

After a day of exploring and sharing vows, everything came to a close with a performance by mystical acrobats and fire dancers. These photos embody the essence of Tulum, Mexico!
