The wedding of Jade & Peter

Location: Grand Velas Resort & Spa, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Jade and Peter’s whirlwind three-day destination wedding at the Grand Velas Resort and Spa in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico in the Maya Riviera was nothing short of spectacular. Their wedding incorporated the dreamy beach wedding that most can only dream about. Friends and family started arriving for their wedding on Thursday and Friday to celebrate with Jade and Peter. On Friday, they had their rehearsal on the beach and later had their rehearsal/welcome dinner at Luca, an Italian restaurant at the Grand Velas.

The Grand Velas is a AAA 5 Diamond luxury all-inclusive resort which is a stunning property with great food, great service, and beautiful accommodations. This was the first time I stayed at an all-inclusive resort and I have mixed feelings about. For the most part though, the experience is quite amazing. Getting pampered all day long never gets old.

My team and I flew into Cancun, Mexico on Thursday evening to get situated with the environment and to scout out possible photo shoot locations in and around the resort. Because the resort is all-inclusive, security is actually ridiculously tight. Getting in and out of the resort required you to check in and out with the resort attendants each time. The property is gated and they will not let you enter until they locate your host.

On the day of the wedding, Jade started with a trip to the Spa to get ready with her bridesmaids. She spent most of the time there until it was time for the wedding. Because it was a beach wedding, Jade and her bridesmaids went barefoot and had gorgeous designer foot jewerly. Peter on the other hand also spent some time with his groomsmen at the spa before heading back to his room to get ready. They did a spa package that included various types of cold and hot baths and a mud bath. The wedding took place on a private beach sectioned off by the Grand Velas. The beach offered fine white sands with and a breathtaking backdrop for the guests. After the ceremony, all the guests headed back towards the resort to party the night away with their family and friends.

For day three, we scheduled a day after/trash the dress photo session. The plan was to head into Tulum, Mexico to try to get some images with the Mayan ruins. Unfortunately, we had a late start, which is understandable since everyone was up late partying for most of the previous night. We ended up hitting the beach and wandered into the town area where we happened upon this an amazing boutique hotel cafe where we were able to capture some truly amazing shots. Here are a few of my favorites from the 3 day destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Enjoy!
