This wedding season has been filled with many travels near and far and I’m happy to announce, it hasn’t stopped. Lately, my travels took me and my photography pal Cristy Nielsen to Cancun, Mexico for the lovely wedding of sweet Deirdre and Joe. Their wedding weekend was jam packed of festivities all of which kept everyone out till the wee hours of the morning. And sure enough, they bounced back and were right into celebrating with the happy couple. Their wedding and reception was held at Excellence Playa Mujures an amazing 5 star resort in Cancun, Mexico. Not only was this resort aesthetically pleasing to the eye, the service was impeccable, not to mention everything was all inclusive so no one had to worry about bringing their wallet. Ideal when entertaining guests at a destination wedding. Deirdre wore a simple lace Dolce & Gabbana gown, perfectly elegant and light enough for a beach ceremony. Her three bridesmaids were the perfect accompaniment wearing rich purple dresses by Pretty Maids. Joe kept it classic and simple as well wearing a Ermeneglido Zenga suit while his groomsmen wore light purple button downs and white linen pants from Jeremy Argyle NYC. Tropical flowers were placed throughout and deep hues of purple created an overall statement for their reception. The clouds rolled in just as Deirdre and Joe were being introduced and just as they were beginning the first dance, the sky opened up and it began raining. Instead of everyone running for cover, they all remained in their chairs while cheering on Deirdre and Joe to continue in their first dance. Truly one of the most romantic and unforgettable moments I’ve experience while documenting the first dance. As you can see from the images below, the champagne continued pouring and the party kept going. Thank you Deirdre and Joe for an awesome destination wedding…I will never forget Cancun.
