From Edmonton to Playa Del Carmen, to Cancun, to Tulum and back to Playa Del Carmen. What a journey through so much, climbing cliffs, storms, and so much more. We spent what turned out to be a very eventful week with two amazing people, Nathalie + Jake in Mexico for their elegant destination wedding. From the Ceremony at the five diamond JW Marriott overlooking a beautiful ocean scene, to their swanky white, glass themed reception at the 5 star Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Playa Del Carmen, this was a beautiful wedding.
Words cannot describe the journey we went on with these two. From the valleys to the mountains. Nathalie + Jake, our love is with you, as we know yours is with us. Thank-you for your energy, enthusiasm, positive attitude and fun-filled spirits right from the first meeting to our good-byes at the taxi.
Let's talk about what we saw. Nathalie + Jake are good friends, who we had the chance to meet in Orlando Florida at the wedding of Majorie + Juan. Check out their wedding here Orlando Florida wedding.
At the bridal prep, we were met with the sight of Saks Fifth avenue jewelery, a beautiful silk Monique Lhuillier gown that was later trashed at Nathalie's request, Dior shoes, and two of the most pro makeup artists with an actual electric air brush (our first to ever see). At the groom prep, it was Hugo Boss, and Louis Vuitton shoes. Ahem... nice duds guys. No really.... ;)
But what really stood out was their love for each other, and how much they loved pictures. No place too dirty, no weather too hot, through storms, through sand, wind... you name it, these guys were game. So without further ado, enjoy!
