Kim Van Belle and Justin Hierba, a couple with an eye for a romantic aesthetic, celebrated their love in a breathtaking destination wedding. Their day was meticulously curated to showcase their distinct love story. This event was set against the stunning backdrop of Mayakoba giving an elevated Mexican jungle ambiance with splashes of romantic scenes and metallic dreams. The destination wedding saw a harmonious fusion of Miami's local talent and the Mexican setting, offering a stylish blend of culture and high fashion.

As an esteemed wedding planner, Kim crafted every detail of her wedding with exceptional care. The day was brought to life with her vibrant personality and refined elegance. Ensuring every element was perfect, the couple made seven trips to the award-winning Banyan Tree Mayakoba resort venue. The resort, renowned for its luxurious villas, served as the perfect locale for Kim to get ready. The bridal preparations were far from ordinary, with the bride and her entourage creating fun TikTok memories, dressed in sunny yellow PJs.

Fashion-forward brides, like Kim, understand the power of color. Her jewel-toned dressed bridesmaids, the welcoming mariachi post-ceremony, and the dance floor festooned with golden strands, all contributed to a wedding narrative that was as dynamic as it was sophisticated. It was a perfect reflection of the couple's passion for style, culture, and art-centric wedding photography.
