Beautiful light, beautiful couple, beautiful surroundings… makes for great wedding photography!
Jason and I (Gina) were fortunate enough to escape the Colorado winter weather and travel to beautiful Cancun, Mexico for an amazing destination wedding. We love this couple and after a COLD engagement photography session in Denver and Genesee, we couldn’t wait for their February destination wedding. Nicole picked the Ocean Coral and Turquesa Resort specifically because it matched her wedding colors (how cute is that). The vibrantly painted walls were a nice backdrop for photography.
Let me just say that if you want to be a completely relaxed bride, get married on the beach. Nicole was so mellow it made me want to cancel our Colorado wedding (less than 3 months away… yeah!) and fly to ANY warm destination and get married there. However, it wasn’t just the relaxing atmosphere that made this such an amazing event for photography, it was Nicole & Mike themselves! They are such a relaxed, happy couple that spending a few days photographing their wedding didn’t feel like work. They are so in love and so easy to love that it’s no wonder 70 guests made the trip down for their destination wedding. Such a testament of what a wonderful couple they are.
The ever-wonderful Julie of Classic Creations did a fantastic job orchestrating the wedding and even packed a suitcase full of linens to make sure Nicole & Mike got exactly what they wanted.
On a side note, somehow we managed to completely forget to pack sunscreen. In the shuffle between packing carry-ons and photography gear (and having to fill a travel size bottle – then – switching to checking a bag so it wouldn’t matter) the sunscreen stayed safely tucked away at home. Upon realizing our mistake, instead of buying a ridiculously priced bottle down there, we decided to be oh so brilliant and forgo any sun protection because, hey, we’re from Colorado and we can handle it. Well… we handled it so well the first day we thoroughly burned ourselves (well-cooked wedding photographers) and in the end bought the overpriced bottle. Lesson learned
