It was one week ago today. I woke in paradise and stretched my arms high feeling the beauty of this place we’ve been staying in. I knew the day had a full and busy agenda for me, but seriously… who gets to have a job like this?!! I’m seriously so blessed! I’ve found myself boarding a plane a few days earlier and on-route to the beautiful Mayan Riviera, a location I’ve yet to visit, but oh so highly recommend! It all came to through this amazing girl Lyndsay, and her charismatic fiancé Tim when they contacted me about a year ago now to ask if I would come with them to photograph their dream wedding in Mexico.
Let’s just say that its a request that’s not easily refused. I know Lyndsay and her family… I photographed her sister’s wedding a few years back now, I know that this family is incredibly kind and loving, and that Lyndsay and her friends really know how to have a lot of fun, and I could feel the energy and excitement through the phone when talking to Lyndsay. Even though I hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting Tim just yet, it was clear that this was going to be the trip of a lifetime.
Upon arrival to the gorgeous resort, Grand Sunset Princess & Grand Riviera Princess All Suites in Mayan Riviera, I fell in love over and over and over again as I toured the grounds and just found awesome beauty everywhere. The water was deep turquoise, the sky bright blue, the sand hot & white and it slipped through my toes, and the water so fresh and clean. I really don’t think Tim & Lyndsay could have picked a more beautiful place to be married. And then to find out that they brought along 100 of their closest friends and family members!! 100 people traveling to Mexico for a destination wedding!!! I think that says it all really – how loved these two are that this many people followed and took a week away from their lives, their jobs, the family, etc. to celebrate this momentous week-long event.
The energy and joy that stems right from the inside of Tim & Lyndsay is contagious. You can’t help but want to be around them. I have to mention that I never saw this couple, or their group of friends slow down the entire week. They were high energy, full of life, partied and partied and made some amazing memories. It was so sweet to be a part of this gift of a wedding celebration, to share it with friends and to reconnect with friends from the past. Tim & Lyndsay… I am forever grateful for this experience. Chad and I had an amazing time with you both and are loving reliving the wedding through the photos. So without further ado, please take a moment or two to enjoy them here yourself. There are many more still to come, but this if a good preview for now. Much love to both of you and all the very best in the bright future ahead!
