I would have never imagined this opportunity for myself. An invitation to photograph a destination wedding? I'm still stunned by the thought! I met Chelsea and Derek from an engagement session we had done spring of 2019. Chelsea shared her love for Cabo and the excitement of their summer wedding. It wasn't until after the engagement gallery was delivered I received an email inquiring about joining them in Mexico as their wedding photographer. We were able to work out the details and ya'll, it was a dream come true!
The day started off with meeting the bride and her lovely family/friends in the bridal suite. The room could have hosted the president- it was so spacious, light, and airy. Honestly, the entire resort reflected this ambiance. The couple chose to get married with the Pacific Ocean making its day view in the background. Chelsea and Derek had a smile on their face the entire ceremony! It was absolutely precious to witness.
They hosted their reception just steps away from the ceremony site. I've never seen such a fantastic buffet lineup. Their guest got to enjoy a fun cocktail hour, entertainment from the DJ, and of course, I can't forget heartwarming speeches by the father-of-the-bride, sister, and best man. Chelsea made it a point to say my husband and I were a part of the fun! I have to say I felt as though close friends were getting married. I truly adore this couple and the opportunity to capture such a beautiful destination marriage.
