Like most of my destination wedding clients, Tiffany and I hadn't actually met in person prior to their wedding weekend in the Riviera Cancun, Mexico. Just a couple phone conversations and lengthy emails was all I needed to I feel like I already knew her and to share in their excitement for the big day. Upon arriving at the Excellence Riviera Cancun, my excitement grew- I could hardly wait to begin documenting. With the kind of weather wishes are made of, the calm setting of the Mexican shore and excited energy from loved ones, Tiffany and Jay had the perfect wedding day. I was completely thankful to capture it.
Tiffany's gown was an impeccable fit for the mediterranean style of the resort.
Along a shaded path, Jay and Tiffany had their "first look". I loved the way Jay patiently waited in anticipation.
Favorite shot of the day.. caught in a passing moment.
Tiffany carried her mother's purse throughout the day.. wow, do I love heirloom details!
If images carried sounds with them, in this series, you would hear the trickling water from a nearby fountain, the gentle whispers of palm leaves sweeping against each other and the sweet, quiet conversations of a man and woman about to be married. This was my favorite moment from the day.
The bouquets, designed by the resort, were a delicate blend of roses, orchids and tiny sea shells.
Shortly before the sunset ceremony on the ocean, family and friends met to capture some casual portraits. I absolutely love the excitement, peace and love of their parents that show through in these.
Another truly beautiful moment, just as Tiffany's father was to hand his daughter off to be married to Jay.
As the sun began to fall, Tiffany and Jay had a couple more portraits at the shore.
A few steps from the ocean, guests gathered for a private dinner reception and were welcomed by a mariachi band, of course!
Thank you Tiffany and Jay for welcoming me to capture your dream wedding. It was an absolute joy to work with you, your families and friends!
