From the bride, Christina:
Reilly and I chose to have our wedding in Mexico because we thought it would be an amazing way to have all of our friends and family together in one beautiful place to celebrate, which for us was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
It wasn’t easy choosing the resort, and we definitely had that “not knowing what to expect” feeling along the way. But in the end we couldn’t have been more happy with everything, it was amazing and more than what we could have ever imagined.
We chose the Grand Palladium White Sands resort in the beautiful Mayan Riviera. The day of the wedding was seamless. We loved our ocean backdrop as we said our vows, and finished the night off with our private beach bash. It was the perfect beginning to the rest of our lives together.
The beauty of Mexico made it feel easy to get picture perfect photos with beautiful backdrops and nature surrounding us, but of course we couldn’t have done it without our wonderful photographer Justine Milton who made it all happen! We couldn’t have asked for more in capturing our wedding week.
Our location for our rock/trash the dress and boudoir photography was in one of the Mayan Cenotes not too far from our resort, it was super serene. The lighting was perfect and the caves were stunning. It was definitely a surreal feeling to be surrounded by one of natures beautiful natural wonders. Then to have each moment there with my husband captured in a photograph was the icing on the cake! I’d have to say that I wouldn’t change a thing about it, it was once in a lifetime and not a lot of people can say that. My husband was a trooper through all of the photography. The Mexican heat isn’t easy to bare but he was amazing and kept on going despite almost having heat stroke and I love him so much for it!
All in all, it was the perfect beginning to our happily ever after!
