For a central Alberta wedding photographer a destination wedding to a warm and sunny place is like music to your ears. Especially when the destination is Mexico and the time of year is the end of November. Palm trees and fruity drinks replace snow, ice and hot chocolate. Hola Mexico was what I was thinking. A destination in the Mayan Riviera was very exciting for this wedding photo journalist!
Cassandra and Jon from Grande Prairie invited me to be their ‘Official Destination Wedding Photographer’ in March not knowing where their destination wedding would take place exactly I gladly excepted the invitation. A wedding adventure filled with friends, love and lots of fiestas!
The wedding morning started very low key. The bride and her brides maids sipped champagne in her ocean front room while her stylist ensured every hair was in perfect place for her special day. A warm ocean breeze floated through the room as the girls relaxed and enjoyed the morning. In the afternoon the ceremony took place in after a light shower settled the sand on the beach. They both said “I Do” with the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Carribean sea behind them and their closest friends and family by their sides. It truly was a fairly tale wedding for these two amazing people. I was so honored to take part in their amazing day and capture those images for them forever. Below are a few teasers of Cassandra and Jon’s beautiful wedding. It was an experience I will treasure forever. Thank you Cass and Jon for sharing your day with me.
