Mexican Enchantment: Mélissa & Ramzi in Riviera Maya, Mexico

Business professionals Mélissa Léveillé and Ramzi Mansour met in 2010 while getting their MBA degrees in Montreal, Canada. After spending days and nights studying together, they realized they were falling for one another. After graduating, the jet set pair moved to Lyon, France, before calling Beirut, Lebanon home, where they currently reside. Last year, they took a trip to Mexico, where Ramzi asked Mélissa to marry him during a beautiful sunrise in Tulum on January 8th.

The bride wore a Monique Lhuillier gown fit for a fairy tale. "When I saw this style at L'Atelier Blanc Beirut with its tiered tulle and the most beautiful lace, I immediately fell in love," she says. "I was especially fond of the fact that you could see my shoes in the front, thanks to the high-low hem."
