I photographed their small church ceremony in snowy Ontario and then we jetted off to Playa Del Carmen in Mexico the same day. Before that I had only been on vacation to one other tropical country so I was super excited, and even better I got to bring my fiancé along with me!We went with about 30 of their closest family and friends to Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda. Their wedding took place right on the beach under the swaying palm trees and with a breeze coming in right off the ocean. It was beautiful! After the ceremony we took the bridal party along the beach for some photos and then by the palms for photos of just the bride and groom. I have never seen any location so beautiful and obviously so different from what I am used to in Ontario. I was so excited to be there and capturing their wedding! Their reception took place at one of the a la carte restaurants on the resort. It was a beautiful French restaurant called L’Atelier where we had the whole place to ourselves to celebrate and then dance the rest of the night.The rest of our vacation was spent sipping Bahama Mama’s on the beach and swimming in the ocean. Please take me back!Thank you Ioana and Danny for trusting me to capture your day and for bringing Joey and I along to such a beautiful country for your wedding!
