This was a big adventure...so in my mind, it warrants a BIG post. Mission accomplished. This was our first overseas destination wedding, and we couldn't have asked for a better couple to share it with. To know that they trusted us enough to ask us to join them as they exchanged their vows on the beach in the Mayan Riviera was an honor and career highlight to say the least. The beautiful Barcelo Maya Palace was our backdrop for the wedding day and our home for the week. It was absolutely incredible. Steve and I have done Mexico before...but never like this. The setting was a definite contrast to the couple's Grouse Mountain engagement session back in January, but the spark and rich, emotional love was still there.
The night before the wedding, we snapped a few shots with Brad + Heidi around the resort, just to get them warmed up. The day of the wedding started out overcast, but ended up the way the rest of the week played out...hot and sunny. Brad + Heidi spent the day with their dearest friends and family that travelled to celebrate with them. There were countless, sweet moments of hugs and tears, and we got to photograph it all! The post is long...but as I looked over it, I feel we did what we set out to accomplish...share Brad + Heidi's love story...their wedding day. My favourite segments are the first look (LOTS of joy and emotion) and the sunset pictures...you can tell the couple is relaxed, content and so excited about their future.
So happy to have shared in this beginning with you guys! Thank you for having us!
