Mona and David had one of those weddings where you can’t help notice that everyone is having a really fantastic time celebrating. Well, now that I think of it… a fun group of friends and family gathered to spend a weekend in a place like Playa del Carmen, Mexico for the wedding of a beautiful couple who just couldn’t be happier, what could be a better time than that? The wedding day just seemed to fly by. Mona and David’s ideas for their Catholic wedding and the reception at the Kool Beach club were implemented beautifully by Luisa, Glena and Adriana of Weddings Riviera Maya
We met up with Mona at the La Tortuga Hotel to photograph the bridal getting ready portion of the day. She had a really fun group of bridesmaids helping her prepare and lots of pretty and very well chosen details to photograph…
The ceremony was a Catholic mass at Playa del Carmen´s Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe church. David’s reaction when Mona entered the church on her father’s arm was very heartfelt, and Lindsey captured these moments.
After the mass the entire group walked Carmen along the Quinta Avenida, acompanied by a mariachi band. (Or should I say ran? Maybe because I was running backwards and photographing simultaneously at the time but the bride and groom seemed to be moving at a very fast pace!) Such a fun way to celebrate especially since the entire town seemed to be cheering on the newlyweds!
Mona and David had planned a private reception in the heart of Playa del Carmen at the Kool Beach Club, the next two photos were taken on the beach before they joined their guests for the fiesta.
