Cabo San Lucas Wedding

I've always loved destination weddings, but shooting one has always been just a dream. 

 When the opportunity was given to go to Mexico to shoot this wedding it was a dream come true for me.

the day before the wedding, the family threw one of the funnest rehearsal dinners I have ever been a part of!!! it was right on the water, at sunset, and it took place at the resort where we would be staying for the next few days.

the rehearsal dinner, where we played bride and groom games, ate incredible food, and enjoyed the night time ocean air was a celebration of what was to come. even after the rehearsal dinner was over the celebration continued long into the night!! they truly enjoyed themselves and partied the night away from all the excitement about the  next day. 

the day of the wedding the ladies got ready in the spa, at the all inclusive resort. it was so beautiful and relaxing, which is every bride's dream. they got pampered while the guys got ready and cleaned up in one of the resort suites.

the colors they chose for the wedding were beautiful and bright. they represented the culture they come from so well. they went with a stunning purple, bright blue, and a vibrant yellow!! all of the colors were incorporated in the flowers, as well as, the bridesmaids dresses, which were ALL made by hand by family!!

my favorite part about this exit from the ceremony is that all of their family quickly followed them out and it became one massive hug by the pool. after all of the family had relocated to the cocktail hour, we slipped away to the beach for some breathtaking sunset photos

a Mexican sunset is probably one of the most beautiful things i've ever had the pleasure of witnessing!!! But when the sun sets in Mexico ... the parties begin!!!
