Mexico Beach Wedding Photography | Lisa + David
Grand Palladium Resort and Spa | Puerto Vallarta
My favorite weddings to photograph are those of my own friends and family! Everything is a little extra special. Lisa has been in my life as a step sister and friend for almost 15 years and I’ve never seen her happier then she is now! David compliments her outgoing, adventurous spirit perfectly! They’ve done more traveling (and home renovating) in just a few years then I’ll probably do in my life time! So it was expected that they would have a destination wedding! Their closest family and friends enjoyed a relaxing week in Mexico followed by a very special celebration the day before we flew home!
The morning of the wedding day started out HOT as everyone got ready! But to everyones relief, a big cloud cooled us off for the ceremony! The bridesmaids danced down the isle before Lisa came down looking amazing as always. We watched them seal their vows with kiss, then I got to take over for portraits. Of course, I was stoked to get to photograph such an awesome group of people, and on a beach no less! Mexico did not disappoint.
After dinner, I think most of the room was in tears thanks to some heartfelt speeches! One thing that made this wedding extra special was Davids little boy, Ethan, who also gained a whole other family! Maybe he’ll get a little brother or sister sometime soon?? Haha 😉
One of the coolest parts of the day was the beach dance, complete with white lounging furniture, snacks, and a fire! I photographed the first dance, then put away my gear so I could finish off the night as a guest!
Before we get to some (a lot) of my favourite photos from through out the day, let’s here from the couple themselves:
Words from the bride: Where to begin… your wedding day is the day every girl dreams of till it finally happens … My day surpassed my every dream! . The ceremony was gorgeous, the weather was perfect, my groom looked handsome. From my first step down the aisle I knew my life was complete as I looked to him every step of the way. My stomach was anxious, this moment is one I will never forget, the moment he looks at you and you know he thinks you are the most beautiful woman alive. Sharing this day with my closest friends and family in Mexico was exactly what I hoped for. A week of too many giggles and many memories. My absolute favourite time took place on the beach our night time party. It was perfect. From the food to the music to the decor, we all had such an amazing time, I never wanted the day to end. My advise to others getting married is don’t stress about your day just enjoy every minute ❤️
Words from the groom: The bride looked gorgeous. I married the girl of my dreams.
And with that, enjoy some eye candy from Lisa and Davids Mexico beach wedding!! 😀
