Steve & Anna’s Mexican Wedding

What a fun and exciting year we have had! We honestly feel so blessed to have such a great job, flying around the globe documenting the most important days of peoples lives. We can’t think of a better way to spend our days then with our amazing clients we feel so lucky to have! We’re on our way to New Delhi, India this June to shoot Ankush and Lina’s beautiful Indian wedding, which has got us pretty excited, can’t wait… bring on the yummy food! After destination weddings in Jamaica, Barbados, Hong Kong, Australia and Mexico we’ve had the chance to shoot in some pretty amazing and exotic locations. Steve and Anna’s wedding in Mexico is one of those shoots, gorgeous location, fabulous couple, great ceremony… the perfect wedding in paradise.

If there is one thing that we love it’s referrals!!! Dave photographed Patrick and Ludwika’s wedding in 2007 and we where happy they sent Steve and Anna our way. Thanks Patrick and Ludwika, you guys are awesome. Ok, back to the wedding, when we arrived to the suite, everyone was calm and relaxed, the right pace for a breezy wedding in Playa del Carmen (in the Mayan Riviera). Steve owns a hair salon in the Bloor West Village in Toronto and who better to do Anna’s hair then her husband to be. He did an absolutely gorgeous job. After she slipped on her Gucci dress and Valentino shoes she looked just like a Hollywood starlet- Stunning.

Steve wasn’t looking to bad himself! He looked like very cool in his light grey suit, a perfect shade for a destination wedding.

It was really nice watching these two together. They really enjoyed just being together and all of the shots just felt natural and relaxed.

Ahhhh, I love this one. This was just outside of the chapel where the ceremony was held. Can you believe that is a wall of candle wax. These candles were so romantic, it was hard for Steve to resist just one little kiss!

We loved the look on Steve’s face when he saw his bride to be walking towards him down the aisle. Can’t you just feel his emotion for Anna.

The ceremony was held in a little Mexican chapel. The little white chapel sat high upon a hilltop, woodwork and candle light really set the mood for an intimate wedding of close friends and family. Beautiful light poured in from the sunset as if to bless the marriage from the heavens. It really was a phenomenal spot to exchange vows.

We caught this cute little shot of them admiring their rings for the first time. Awwwee, it’s moments like these ones that really get us excited about photographing beautiful wedding pictures for our clients.

Once the ceremony was complete, we headed to our resort for a very romantic wedding reception on the beach. With the sound of the Mariachi’s playing, the waves lapped to shore. Palm leaves swayed in the wind and a ceiling stars covered us over head. Receptions on the beach are the best, sand between your toes, tiki torches lighting the way, so romantic.

They sipped champagne and danced the night away. The happy couple made a toast to all of their wonderful friends and family that made the trip to Mexico with them to celebrate their love for one another in style!

After some really thoughtful and caring speeches, the gang hit the sand for some boogying on the beach.
