It was the kind of wedding that will stay in your mind long after it’s over. Not only because it was held at the beautiful Planet Hollywood Cancun resort or because the sun, sand and seas made such a perfect backdrop for all of the wedding events. It was because that even more beautiful than any of these was the bond between Nikki and Cody.
Every photo and video of these two love birds showed the depth of their love. Take a look at the details for this amazing wedding and learn key takeaways you can use for your own beach destination wedding as well.
We were honored to be a part of Nikki and Cody’s wedding journey. First, we helped them decide on their destination and resort by listening to their vision for their wedding, considering their budget and other details and providing a researched list of possible wedding locations for them.
Next, we brought together all the travel details for them and their guests and served as a point of contact for any travel questions.
Nikki and Cody worked with the incredible wedding planner, Sweet Magnolia Events. This team worked hard to make sure every detail was as it should be and in the end it was, as Nikki put it, a “perfect wedding” because of it.
The TOC Studio team was there to capture every breath-taking detail of this gorgeous wedding both as the photographers and videographers. We especially appreciate the candid shots they took that revealed Nikki’s bond not only with Cody but with her family as well.
It takes a talented team to get shots like these and we’re thrilled that TOC was able to get such meaningful shots during the wedding week.
Nikki and Cody’s welcome night included a lighted dance floor which cycled through a rainbow of colors as guests danced to DJ Amsal’s amazing beats. The crowd stayed energized throughout the night and Nikki and Cody couldn’t stop smiling. Those are the marks of a DJ who is truly skilled!
Together with the bright string of lights handing above and the soft sounds of the ocean nearby, it was the perfect way to start the wedding. As you think about your welcome activities, consider having one beachside to give your guests the perfect taste of tropical ambiance. Because there’s nothing quite like dancing to your favorite songs while a soft ocean breeze passes by.
Our clients have added in additional elements such as fireworks displays, glow sticks, appetizer stations and much more to make the welcome event a memorable one. As you consider your wedding, it can help to share your vision for that event with your planner. Do you want something mellow like a wine tasting? Do you want it to be more of a party vibe? Anything goes!
Nikki’s lovely mehndi designs were by the excellent Lemons and Mehndi team. This vendor is one that our clients rave about because they know their craft well. The team can make the simplest to the most detailed designs. They make the process easy and relaxing for brides and we are happy that Nikki’s mehndi turnout out so well.
In choosing a mehndi designer for your own wedding, consider a company that has a larger team. This ensures that they will have enough staff on hand (especially if you anticipate having a very large guest list). Decide on which special symbols or images you’d like your mehndi do include.
Some brides like more traditional designs and others want something much more elaborate. The more detailed the design, the longer it can take so choose one that reflects your personal style and will be easy to complete.
Adriana Alcantara was the makeup artist and hair stylist for the wedding. Adriana has a great eye for color and she expertly applied shades that brought out Nikki’s natural beauty. Nikki shined both in her traditional wedding lehenga as well as her white lace dress.
As you consider your makeup needs, ask prospective makeup artists about what they do to ensure your makeup lasts through heat and sweat especially if your ceremony will be outdoors. Ask them if they will include samples of the lipstick and gloss so you’ll be able to do simple touchups on your own.
For the baraat and additional entertainment, Drums in Paradise delivered an excellent performance for the wedding. This team works hard to make every wedding they do be full of excitement and joy especially during baraats and Nikki and Cody’s was no exception!
We love that during the reception they also provided light up headbands and glow sticks and as well as dancers with lit up costumes which the crowd loved. Encore MX provided expert lightning services as well. They not serve weddings but other large events as well and do a great job of setting the perfect mood for receptions.
A wedding this incredible only happens when you have vendor partners as wonderful as the following teams. We are so grateful for all that each of these amazing companies did to make Nikki and Cody so happy.

With the gentle sea breeze blowing through the air and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, the couple and their guests left Planet Hollywood Cancun with hearts filled with joy and memories that will leave a smile on their faces. The traditional Hindu ceremony and the outdoor events by the sea were truly magical and perfectly captured the essence of this beautiful couple’s love story.
We wish Nikki and Cody a lifetime of love and happiness, and may the memories of their special day continue to shine bright like the Cancun sun.
