Joe and I had the pleasure of joining Mary Alice and Adam for their wedding weekend in Cancun, Mexico earlier this fall.  WOW!  Not only did we have an amazing time getting to know their super sweet families, but we were able to enjoy the beauty of the tropical paradise at Azul Sensatori Mexico Resort by Karisma.  

We started off the weekend capturing some amazing speeches by the couples' friends and family who had all traveled a long way to celebrate with them.  We love the intimacy of destination weddings...everyone is there to support the bride and groom, and at the same time, make new friends while getting to know other wedding guests.  Day two consisted of the most epic "rehearsal dinner" EVER!  The group traveled on a private chartered boat to the middle of the ocean to snorkel, dance, and feast on lobster and steak.  Did we mention it was AMAZING!?  The weather was perfect, and watching the sunset out on the crystal clear blue water was breathtaking.

Finally, as the wedding day arrived, we could feel the excitement and anticipation from everyone as Mary Alice and Adam prepared to say their "I Do's."  You'll have to watch their film to fully experience the emotion of this special weekend.  We had a blast working with the amazing CR Photo and everyone at the Azul Sensatori Mexico Resort by Karisma (say that five times fast haha!).
