Crashing waves, vibrant colors, and the intimacy of a private villa … this relaxed wedding was effortlessly beautiful and heartwarming. We fell in love with Casa Del Amanecer, the gorgeous private villa that E + J chose for their ceremony, with its lush gardens, horses wandering outside the property, and direct access to a beautiful, secluded beach!
The bride’s simple spaghetti-strap wedding gown and wavy hairstyle with a flower pinned behind her ear complemented her natural beauty. We also loved the groom’s unique succulent boutonnière. It was so nice to see both the bride and groom so relaxed on their big day. Knowing that their wedding team had everything organized and under control, the bride and groom were able to enjoy the morning before the ceremony without any stress. Before meeting each other at the end of the aisle, the bride took a walk in the garden, and the groom relaxed in a hammock – there were no pre-ceremony nerves or jitters to be had!
The bride’s parents accompanied her down the aisle to meet her husband-to-be at the altar. In front of their closest friends and family, the bride and groom exchanged vows under the incredible blooming orange and yellow ceremony arch, designed by Mazarte Floral. After exchanging rings, the bride and groom sealed the deal with the big kiss!
We always recommend scheduling enough time between the ceremony and the reception for photos of the bride and groom! The newlyweds had time to walk along the beach together while laughing, talking, and enjoying the sunset. One of our favorite photos of E + J is the portrait we took of the newlyweds in the lush gardens at Casa Del Amanecer! We love when couples are willing to try something different when it comes to portrait photos – and as photographers, we’ve seen that getting out of your comfort zone makes it easier to get candid photos that truly capture your love!
Cheers! The bride and groom rejoined their guests for a toast before the reception, which was hosted at the local Don Sanchez Restaurant, known for farm-to-table ingredients and “modern Mexican” cuisine. Brightly colored décor, vibrant roses at every table, and live music promised a night of fun celebration!
