Kristen & Hart

Hotel Esencia, Tulum Mexico

Planning & Design: Katharine Warden

At the core of Kristen & Hart’s destination I do was a feeling of exclusivity. With a full weekend of events designed to evoke grandiose and glamor, the couple’s intimate guestlist were indulged from the outset. The celebrations commenced with a "Tacos and Tequilas" gathering at the coveted Casa Jaguar, where family and friends dined beneath the lush jungle canopy— the sultry glow of candlelight illuminating glasses raised in honor of the happy couple. 

For her highly anticipated nuptials, Kristen modeled elegance with an hourglass Oscar de la Renta silhouette and an effortlessly stylish chignon. Equally understated yet fashion-forward, Hart wore a neutral Atomic fleck suit and white button down paired with classic loafers. 

Home for the weekend— and host to the main event itself— the chic Hotel Esencia was privately rented for guests to enjoy the entirety of their stay. A peaceful hideaway on the Yucatán Peninsula, the resort was the perfect backdrop for the couple’s modern wedding. The Hacienda architecture framed by native foliage and flanked by the white sand beach made for a setting that embodied the essence of the destination, as well as the finesse of their fête.
