At the beginning of this month I was very lucky to be included in a small, intimate wedding on the Beach at an amazing adults-only, all inclusive resort near Playa Del Carmen. There were only 14 people total at this destination wedding. But it was the perfect mix of family and friends. Everyone had a great time! I flew in to Cancun on Friday, and left on Sunday, staying 2 nights and photographing the rehearsal dinner, all the wedding day activities (getting ready, ceremony, details, and of course the party), and then we did a photo session on the beach sunday morning before I flew out.
And there were so many details that the bride arranged. There were hand-made dinner menus, unique place-cards made of tile, OOT bags for the family and friends, and an extra special Texas flag. The Flag was sewn onto a canvas bag filled with some soil from their homestead, and placed on the ground at the beach altar. Both the bride and the groom had one foot on the flag during the ceremony so they would be “married on Texas soil”.
This is the first of a two part series – today I’m including some of my favorite film pictures (yep I do film destination weddings). Stay tuned, because the next post will have way more photos, and a ton more detail shots.
All my travel plans were made by Skip of your Honeymoon guru dot com. He’s a great person to talk to for all your destination wedding travel arrangements, and if you want to make a custom destination wedding package.
More pictures from this amazing destination wedding are coming tomorrow! Stay tuned for part 2.
