This lovely couple and their wedding guests definitely knew how to fiesta! We had so much fun photographing A + R’s romantic engagement shoot photos, so it was such a pleasure to see their friendly faces again and to work with them on their big day! From start to finish, this wedding day was overflowing with celebrations of love.
Looking for the perfect beach venue for their destination wedding, A + R fell in love with the breathtaking Hyatt Ziva resort in Cancun as the perfect place to tie the knot. The brilliant designers at Love Memories Weddings worked with the bride and groom every step of the way to guarantee that their day would be magical – and it was! With floral arrangements ranging from every color of the rainbow and pops of color in the décor, this wedding definitely fit the “fiesta” theme that the bride and groom hoped for!
The bride and groom’s wedding day looks were both stylish and elegant. The groom (and the groomsmen) sported bright, funky socks for an extra pop of color. With the help of hair stylist and makeup artist Ashley Sanchez, the bride looked like royalty with natural-looking makeup and a wavy up-do.
The ceremony took place outside under Hyatt Ziva’s incredible wedding canopy, which offers breathtaking views of the ocean. One of our favorite shots is the moment that the groom’s face lights up in a smile when he sees his bride walking down the aisle! With perfect weather, handwritten vows, and a sweet kiss, the wedding ceremony was something out of a fairytale.
After the ceremony, the bride and groom posed for a few fun shots with the bridal party before taking a walk down the jetty for sunset portraits. The setting sun cast a golden glow on the landscape, creating a romantic atmosphere for the bride and groom to enjoy a moment of privacy.
“I fall more in love with you than I’ve ever been, from the moment you wake me up till you kiss me goodnight.” The reception began on a sentimental note with the first dance, to which the bride and groom danced to Chris Stapleton’s “More of You.” We laughed, smiled, and teared up along with the rest of the wedding guests while the bride and groom’s closest friends and families gave their speeches and toasted the newlyweds. We love that the bride and groom embraced another fun wedding tradition with the bridal bouquet toss and the garter toss! This longstanding tradition always provides a great photo opportunity and gets lots of laughter from the wedding guests.
All in all, A + R’s bright wedding day was more than a success – it was a fairytale.
