Catherine & Kyle are two easy going souls who wanted to keep it simple and therefore opted for a Fun Azul Sensatori Destination Wedding to celebrate their love.
With just a small group and friends and family, and minimal decor (who needs lavish decor anyway when you have a breathtaking ocean view from the Sky Deck at Azul Sensatori), they said their I-do's and danced the night away!! Mega congrats Sr. & Sra. Melching, we wish you both an incredible life together!

We are so excited to share with you all this beautiful, colorful and fun ... cultural bohemian Tulum Mexico Wedding!!
Stephanie & Rikin are two fun and laid back New Yorkers, who chose Tulum to celebrate their love and the fusion of their roots, cultures and traditions: Hindu-Jewish.
We were fascinated by the rich details, colors, patterns and the simple yet tasteful decor of both ceremonies and reception. A lively baarat on the beach preceded the traditional Indian wedding ceremony; followed by an outfit change, the signing of the Ketubah and an emotional Jewish wedding.
The entire group enjoyed a live Mariachi band, amazing food, a few tequila shots and the good vibes and energy of Tulum during the rest of the evening. Mr. & Mrs. Mantri, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the chance to capture such a magical celebration!!!

Emily and Nicholas are really into arts and architecture but were also hoping for a go-with-the-flow kind of day ... and so a Boho Belmond Maroma Beach Wedding came to life!!
These two funky crazy lovebirds from Dallas are big planners but decided that for their wedding weekend, in the Mayan Riviera, they just wanted to show up and live in the moment. No fancy decor or elaborated details, just everyone crying, smiling and having fun in Mexico. Sounds like a dream wedding to us!!
During the getting ready we captured Emily and her girls laughing, dancing and bonding so beautifully. While the guys dressed up to meet at the beach for the wedding ceremony. After a few family portraits, we sneaked out with the Commerford's for snaps around the resort's amazing backdrops. The reception at the Sol Restaurant was fun and relaxed and very special.
Thanks so much Emily & Nicholas, for trusting our natural style and giving us a wedding story for the books. We love you dearly and wish you a very happy life together.

A sassy beach wedding at the Azul Beach Resort by Karisma, Riviera Maya, Mexico. Ricardo is a determined fine fellow, who waited patiently for his dream girl to say "yes" to a first date ... After a lunch together, they realized they were meant to be. Fast forward a few years and he proposed at a vineyard in California with a customized wine bottle that read "Rashida Saidah Collins, will you marry me?" (of course she said yes!!). How sweet is that??
This wedding day was carefully planned with sweet touches of lavender and the happy newlyweds jumping the broom, to symbolize a new beginning!! Huge congrats Mr. & Mrs. Jacob and thanks so much for your friendship, trust and love.

Her idea of a perfect wedding was: "I really just want to enjoy the day with the people I love the most. I am def not one of those bridezillas- I won't mind if something is out of place as long as my friends and family are having fun".
And thankfully her destination wedding at the hip Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa was all of this and much more! Getting ready was filled with smiles, excitement and toasts, followed by an emotional ceremony at the RoofTop Deck, cocktails and a private reception dinner at the Nautica Beach Restaurant.
