I vividly remember reading Jessica’s destination wedding inquiry on my blackberry this past summer… At the time I didn’t think of it as an ‘inquiry’ – it was simply the highlight of my whole week. I jumped up and down giddily in my kitchen, thinking of how amazing it would be to document their love in such paradise. And we’ve brought it to life this past week.
Jessica & Ryan complete each other. It’s been such an inspiration watching them exchange their vows. In every silent look, in every touch.
Back at the Barcelo Maya Palace hotel room, Jessica put the finishing touches on the girls’ make-up herself. Here’s a moment with her mom, who made all the beautiful bridesmaids’ and flower girls’ dresses! In the mean time, I quietly snuck away to photograph Jessica’s gown, much to the amusement of the beach bodies outside.Here’s Jessica, moments before leaving for the ceremony…The ceremony was so touching… Perfect strangers lingered, hugging their beach towels in awe.The violin played as we celebrated in the intimate circle of family and friends…As the sun softened into the horizon, we went for a walk on the beach nearby…The wedding reception dinner was the perfect intimate gathering at the Barcelo Maya Palace dining roomview portfolio | email katya | let’s connect on facebook & twitter
