01 Aug Destination Beach Wedding at Hotel Riu Palace in Mexico
It’s been a while since we’ve photographed a destination wedding, but we were lucky enough to be a part of Daniela & Kyle’s beachside wedding in Mexico last October. They were married right by the ocean with the sand in their toes in front of their friends and family and of course their adorable baby boy at the beautiful Hotel Riu Palace. One of the best things about destination weddings is that everyone (including the bride and groom) is on vacation and so the whole wedding is usually very laid back, and this was definitely the case for this wedding! Everyone was in a great mood and ready to celebrate with Daniela and Kyle. Daniela’s bridesmaids were beautiful and breezy in their mismatched aqua dresses and the groomsmen looked cool and casual in their white shirts with grey pants and aqua ties. Of course Daniela was stunning in her beaded lace ivory gown.
They had an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends and despite any attempts to hold it in, Kyle may have let out a few tears when seeing his bride coming down the aisle. The ceremony was full of laughter and happy tears all around and concluded with an epic fist kiss. The sun started to set around the time we did portraits and gave us beautiful warm soft light to capture the feel of the day. Their reception was a ton of fun with their crazy bridal party, complete with Daniela on the mic with her bridesmaids backing her up busting out “Shoop” and Kyle’s groomsman serenading the couple after his toast.
To top things off and keep the party going, Daniela and Kyle rented a yacht for all of their guests the day after the wedding. They left the dock in the morning and spent the entire day on the ocean partying, swimming and relaxing. We didn’t include photos of day two in this post, but we did get a lot of it on video, so be sure to watch their wedding video highlight! We had a blast at this wedding and capturing the love and craziness that comes with a Mexico destination wedding!
