Cancun Destination Wedding at Xcaret, Riviera Maya

Bride and Groom: Venus + Jaime

Wedding Date: April 2011

Resort: Grand Velas Luxury Resorts @Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Wedding Ceremony: St. Francis of Assisi Chapel, Xcaret

Wedding Reception: Xcaret Park – Riviera Maya and Cancun’s top resort

Wedding coordinator: Ana Cruz of Ana Cruz Events, Florida

Xcaret coordinator: Cristel Romero

This was an event that Marc and I will always remember. The bride and groom are so kind to say the least, and their wedding was just beyond belief. After getting married at the chapel, there is short walk going to the cocktails area by the breakwaters. Jaime had a surprise for his bride. Upon queue, the fireworks launched. The newlyweds led the way to the reception area – the path was spiral architecture leading to the cave which has underground rivers which is part of a large cave system that forms deep under the surface of the Yucatan peninsula . On a normal day there are people snorkeling around the underground river. On the wedding day, it was transformed to an enchanting place. Floating candles and lighting accented the waters that surround the cave. (Please click on the thumbnails to enjoy the photos)

I would like to commend the other vendors as well who made Venus & Jaime’s wedding an unbelievable one  – (makeup artist, lighting guys, dj, dancers, videographer, musicians, florist, etc. )  but I don’t have their contact info as of now. I’ll update this post once I get their contacts.

Destination Wedding of Donna + John in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Donna and John got ready at their hotel, the Riu Palace – a humungous resort, impressive right from the first sight. But I got lost on my way to Donna’s room, they have a unique room numbering sequence, confusing to a first time guest. I must have walked a mile looking for Donna’s room. Good thing I arrived early. Marc went off to John’s room. Both bride and groom have agreed not to see each other before the ceremony and therefore we have to photograph within the confines of the room – how tempting it was to photograph outside the room but we’re not taking any risk and must avoid at all costs any chance of the two bumping into each other prior to ceremony.

Donna’s room was pristine, with ample light. When I arrived, Katie B., an L.A. based hair/makeup artist was performing her art on Donna. Katie’s makeup looks great in photograph – there is color – and still making the bride look gorgeous in person. Some brides might want to go for the nude or barely there makeup, but in the camera these makeup sometimes barely show. What I like about Katie B is that the makeup looks awesome in person and in camera. I dont need to touch-up the photos. 🙂 The bridesmaids gave Donna a personalized gift – it’s a box with something old something new something borrowed something blue. I think it’s very sweet, a must-have kit for every bride to keep the tradition alive. Speaking of something’s – I specially like Donna’s something-blue which is a temporary tattoo of 2 blue hearts which a bride can wear anywhere on her skin. 🙂 A few of the Something-blue’s I’ve seen a bride wear were blue shoes, blue garter, blue knickers, blue jewelries, blue clip, blue toe nails, blue streak of hair. I must say, a blue temporary tattoo is a clever idea.

The ceremony venue is awesome. Sunset da Mona Lisa was the picturesque setting for Donna and John’s wedding. It’s advertised as the best sunset viewing place at Cabo. When the newlyweds were introduced as Mr and Mrs, sparklers were lit and the guests roared and cheered welcoming them. Each event are on cue, thanks to awesome wedding planner Sarai Flores of Signature Weddings Mexico. The DJ rocked the house with the sounds, never a dull song played. The guests were having a blast and enjoying the great time celebrating with the newly weds. After all, it’s Cabo!

Thanks so much Donna and John, we are so happy to have photographed your wedding. You guys rock!

Livermore Wedding Album – Magazine Style

Christy and Todd’s wedding album:

It’s 12 x 16 Magazine Style Album in Landscape format, with 24 spreads ( 48 pages). It’s a high end Italian Wedding Album, production is done in the Ceconi castle in Italy.

Christy and Todd got married at Ravenswood Historic Site in Livermore, California. It has a rustic, vintage, vineyard feel to it. The venue was very cozy, and exudes an old charm character. We designed the album to match their wedding’s personality, having a consistent off-vintage tone across the pages.
