Joelle Todd’s Destination Wedding, Playa del Carmen Mexico

Hey Everyone! After a looong break from blogging we’re back ๐Ÿ™‚ I know it may appear that things have slowed down around here because we haven’t been blogging like we usually do, but it’s quite the contrary! We’ve been insanely busy with weddings and engagement shoots and we were also very busy shooting the Bullfrog Power ad campaign (yey… for all of you fellow greenies out there).ย  Speaking of busy, this season we shot 10 destination weddings! We’re really getting to be expert destination wedding photographers with all of the destination shooting we do. Joelle and Todd, an amazing couple from the USA fell in love with our work and whisked us away to document their amazing five star wedding at The Occidental Royal Hideaway in Playa del Carmen Mexico.

The whole week away was amazing! Every detail was perfect. I loved Joelle’s floral’s, vintage inspired wedding gowns and of course (a-hem) that incredible engagement ring seen above. Can you believe how beautiful that engagement ring is… Good work Todd! We have to say we enjoyed every moment. Joelle and Todd really treated us like we were a part of their wedding and were always warm and welcoming. Wedding photography is really an intimate thing. You’re getting up-close and personal on one of the most emotional, joyful days of a persons life so you really need to get to know your subjects in order to create something beautiful for them.

Joelle and Todd really looked so amazing on their wedding day! They were so happy and you can see the joy in their expression. The outdoor ceremony took place on the rooftop terrace overlooking the turquoise sea. The Royal Hideaway must be the best place for a destination wedding in Mexico. We love the Riviera Maya, it’s absolutely breathtaking!

What a gorgeous couple, and Playa del Carmen Mexico has to be the perfect spot for a destination wedding!!

During cocktail hour we took a quick stroll on the beach to give Joelle and Todd a moment relax and be together!

The Occidental Royal Hideaway is one of the prettiest resorts we’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph. Look at the beautiful fountains and all of the beautiful landscaping as our backdrop! It makes for beautiful photographs, it also helps that Joelle is an absolutley stunning bride, doesn’t it ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was so nice for Joelle and Todd to spend a little downtime together and soak in this very special moment before joining excited friends and family eager to congratulate the newlyweds!

What a picturesque spot for cocktail hour, wouldn’t you agree!

We also loved all of the vibrant reception details. The colours were so complimentary with the gorgeous Mexican landscapes.

What a night, filled with fun, food and fiestas!!

Joelle and Todd had the time of their lives! It was really nice that Joelle had another gorgeous wedding dress to slip in to later in the evening.

Thanks Joelle and Todd for choosing us to document your special time away in Mexico. We loved being a part of your day and getting to know your great friends and family! Congratulations to you both!
