Rachel originally contacted me about shooting her wedding to Daniel in Denver, but after getting sick of wedding planning and making a few schedule changes, we ended up in Mexico instead, and I'm so glad we did! Grand Velas near Playa del Carmen is the most AMAZING venue - right on the beach, breathtakingly beautiful pools, amazing rooms... such a dream to shoot. I was so glad that Rachel & Daniel decided to take some of the pressure off and go with a destination wedding, and I was excited for them to have a chance to relax and enjoy the day!
Skyping with family back home :)
Rachel, you are so beautiful!
Right as the ceremony began, we started to see evidence of Tropical Storm Debby... it got super windy (really really windy), but the rain managed to hold out until they were walking back up the aisle together.
I love this one :)
Thankfully, we had the time to do a day after shoot on the beach the next morning and were able to wait out the rain for some fun beach shots! Rachel & Daniel, thank you both SO much for the honor of shooting your wedding. I had an amazing few days with you both and can't wait to get the rest of your images to you!
