Memorable and Vibrant Okanagan Photography ventured out to Hotel Azul Ixtapa, to capture amore overseas at this Mexico destination wedding!
Sheri and Juan asked us to join them in sunny Ixtapa, Mexico, so we could immortalize their wedding blessings forever in photo. When someone invites you overseas for a fresh dose of long-awaited Vitamin D while having an opportunity to do what you LOVE in a new space yet to be explored, you get on that plane! We were thrilled to be able to see these two fast-paced, love-laced souls tie the knot on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico.
The bride’s elegant gown hung breezily from the window on a gorgeous sunny morning at Hotel Azul Ixtapa. Soft notes of sun shining through the delicate curtains provide the perfect opportunity to capture the stunning textures of flowers and vines meandering through the lace-work of the gown. Champagne-coloured strappy sandals await patiently to carry the bride down the boardwalk to her love.
A light-blue ribbon tied around the bride’s waist, along with daisy pearls woven through her stylish up-do and attached to a long-flowing-veil, are the perfect compliment to her dreamy dress. The groom’s brilliant white suit borrows from the theme of his bride-to-be with light-blue tie and vest. Together, their matching white and blue attire adds a splendid airy coastal theme perfect for getting married ocean-side.
Rings are photographed attop the ring bear pillow, amongst scattered red rose petals and daisies in the luxurious honeymoon suite. The brides bouquet is a mixture of whites, blues, and delicate greens, further complementing the ocean-vibes of the beautiful scenery around us. Outdoors, with vibrant tropical plants, we capture a first-look with the beaming couple. The expressions on their faces are of pure love and happiness as they celebrate their love on this special day.
A photo session with the newlyweds in the village marketplace is a perfect opportunity to further capture the spirit of Mexico. The ocean-side wedding is held with stunning back-drops of land and sea; traditional mud huts, rocky shore, and the ocean beyond. A small, intimate wedding, loved ones watch proudly from the boardwalk as the couple exchange their “I Do’s.”
Bright red rose petals scattered along the weathered wood of the boardwalk pop out against the many shades of blue and white of this elegant ocean wedding. Afterwards, we take the newlyweds down to the beach for some photos in the sand, and then outside of the resort, for their first captures as husband and wife. The peachy tones of the architecture is reminiscent of the warm beach beyond.
The sun seemed to set on this momentous occasion just for our couple; with shades of orange, blue, purple, yellow, and pink appearing in the night sky, and reflecting delicately off the ocean. The magic of the day was further captured with the ever-smiling-wider-and-wider couple, along with special moments with loved ones, beneath the beautiful sunset.
The reception that followed was a real blast, with the joyous union celebrated with the sharing of all the couples favourite treats, along with a seashell themed wedding cake, dinner, and dancing.
Whether it was a mix of the lovebird bride and groom, the culture, the architecture, the textures, the full-blossomed flowers, or maybe a mix of all the above; we felt perfectly blissed out for Sheri and Juan. Thank you for inviting us to share your special day, and we wish you many moons of love and romance!
