Hannah & Danny chose the stunning location of Playa del Carmen for their destination wedding in Mexico. Close friends and family flew into Cancun, Mexico and were escorted to the Azul Fives Hotel for the wedding celebration.
On Thursday before the wedding, the couple hosted a cocktail hour to greet all their guests. It was a great opportunity to connect and celebrate everyone’s arrival. On Friday, each member of the wedding party was introduced during the rehearsal dinner. The food was absolutely amazing and it was a real treat hearing stories of Hannah & Danny’s earlier years.
Saturday was the wedding day and the weather held out just perfectly. Hannah & Danny had to make a decision on whether or not to have their wedding outdoors. Naturally, one of the main reasons they chose their wedding location was because of the incredible view of the ocean. So, needless to say, they stuck with the original plan and had their wedding ceremony outdoors on the beach. The view was incredible and we had an opportunity to capture the couple and all of their guests immediately following the ceremony. It is a group photo that I love to capture at weddings – especially at destination weddings when everyone has traveled from afar. There was a lifeguard tower strategically placed for the big photo. :)
Clearly I have been to a lot of weddings over the years. I document around 25 a year. But few have the sort of energy and excitement that was witnessed at Hannah & Danny’s wedding reception. From the moment that the wedding party staged their choreographed grand entrances all the way to the end of the evening, guests were having the time of their lives. Their wedding reception was an absolute blast to capture. I would like to personally thank the staff for bringing out endless shots of Tequila.
Congratulations to Hannah & Danny! Your destination wedding was a smashing success. The memories and experiences from your destination wedding will be something we all talk about for years to come.
