Lindsey here…I am taking over the blog today to share a few pictures from Caro and Jerry’s bride and groom session. It was a beautiful day and we had this entire rustic hacienda all to ourselves. This magical setting was the perfect backdrop to photograph our good friends and Lauren and I enjoyed every second of it. Thank you Caro and Jerry for giving us the honor!

March 27, 2013
Its been interesting in the last few years to see Mérida, Yucatán slowly ¨discovered¨and ¨put on the map¨, with an influx of residents from other parts of Mexico, a growing snow bird community and a slew of (often very silly) articles appearing in sources such as the New York Times. Sometimes all the attention makes us wonder if Mérida will grow beyond recognition- and then nature reminds us that the heat here is not for the faint of heart! (106ºF (44C) in March- really?). One of the most unique architectural assets of Mérida are the beautiful mansions along the Paseo de Montejo. Dating from Méridá´s Henquen heyday, only a few of these remain today as family residences. Lauren and I were fortunate to be able to photograph this very lovely and happy couple at home on their wedding day in one of the most spectacular. Gaby brought a designer´s eye to her lovely pink wedding details, and I have to say she chosen a wonderful groom as well! Gracias Gaby y Jose Enrique, les mandamos un abrazo fuerte y muchas felicidades.
I loved Lauren’s first look perspectives, the next three shots are hers…can’t mention enough how amazing it is to photograph as part of a team.

Rosannette and Arturo, Yucatan Country Club Wedding, Merida, Yucatan 11 26 11
January 6, 2012
As amazing as it is to photograph in new and exotic locations the opportunity to play on our home court is just as exciting and a very nice change of pace! Rosannette and Arturo were married in a Catholic ceremony at the Iglesia de la Tercera Orden in Merida, Yucatan‘s colonial centro. The reception was held in a lovely open air location on the grounds of the Yucatan Country Club. This wedding was coordinated by Celebra Organización de Eventos. It was a real pleasure to document the wedding of such an enjoyable couple, I think their happy expressions can best tell the story of the day…
Lauren aced the next shot!

November 25, 2011
Santhy and Heyden’s Merida wedding was an amazing day. The happiness of this beautiful couple was really a joy to photograph. Having gone into the day with no preconceived expectations of what was to come we finished up the day feeling like we had made wonderful new friends and successfully captured some of the love, happiness and outright gorgeousness of it all in our photographs. What could be better?
This Merida, Yucatan wedding was beautifully organized by BAKU EVENTS, the ceremony was held at the Merida’s Izimna Church and the Reception at the Quinta Montes Molina on the Paseo de Montejo. Santhy y Heyden, esperamos que les gusten las fotografias de su boda! Felicidades!
Merida, Yucatan Wedding Photography, Wadia and Jared, Quinta Montes Molina
October 18, 2011
Wadia and Jared’s wedding was such a beautiful day but I really can’t even begin to explain the crazy, crazy weather. I am guessing that the 2012 couples will not need to worry about rain on their wedding day at all, as I am pretty sure we used it all up in spring and summer 2011! It truly rained buckets all through the portion of the day leading up to the sunset ceremony, but somehow spirits stayed high and I could tell that the bride and groom and their guests were enjoying every minute. I love how the day’s photographs tell the story! All images Lindsey and Elizabeth Medina.
The day began with getting ready photos for bride and groom, Wadia’s bridal preparations at Rosas and Xocolate on the Paseo Montejo just down the stree from the wedding location.
Jared getting ready to meet his beautiful bride and get the day started…
A few portraits at Rosas and Xocolate, then off to the Quinta to meet up with the rest of the wedding party.
Wedding party and bride and groom photos at the Quinta Montes Molina… Wadia is from Mexico and Jared from the states but they make a fantastic couple. Jared is such a great guy and it came as no surprise that he had such a large group of friends make the trip to Mexico for the wedding.
The Jewish ceremony was held at sunset in the gardens of Quinta Montes Molina.
We have photographed many Jewish weddings, the bride and groom wrapped up together in the prayer shawl is one of the elements I find very special. El beso is not too bad either!
All eyes were on Jared as he breaks the glass…
Coming soon… La fiesta!

We have been wanting to share photographs of this sweet couple for a while now. Here´s hoping that this will be the start of recovering from the busy wedding season and being caught up again with editing and blogging! Samantha and Miguel´s civil wedding was held at the Casa Faller in Merida. Although it was not possible to photograph the religious wedding we were so happy to have the opportunity to photograph Samantha and Miguel and their joyful group of family and friends for the celebration of the civil wedding. The event took place at the Casa Faller in Merida, Yucatan, coordinated by our friends at Baku Events. Samantha and Miguel we are looking forward to more photos of the two of you very soon!

Yucatan Hacienda Photography, Alexis and Alain TTD
May 26, 2011
One final blog post for Alexis and Alain’s wedding, of course you know I could not resist sharing photographs from the hacienda trash the dress session! Lindsey and I great time wandering around Yucatan with Alexis and Alain! I know that from the time I first met Alexis months before the wedding she had a vision of a hacienda TTD session, it was such a pleasure to be able to see the result come to life so many months later. Alexis and Alain, congratulations and we hope to see you in back Merida in the future!

Jewish Wedding in Mexico, Hacienda Chichi Suarez, Merida, Photographer, Alexis and Alain 4 4 11
May 13, 2011
This was one unforgettable wedding! Canadians Alexis and Alain were married at the Hacienda Chichi Suarez in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, this destination wedding had a marvelous turnout with a very cosmopolitan group of guests, it was so cool to hear many different languages being spoken at one wedding. I may be a little biased but with its uber charm and unique culture I am truly convinced that there could not be a more perfect wedding location than Merida. Alexis and Alan’s wedding was almost certainly the most multifaceted we have photographed, making wonderful use of the different areas that this hacienda has to offer. This blog post of images captured on the activity filled wedding day will be followed up with a “part two” featuring festivities held on other days (and even another city!) as well as a very special day after ‘”trash the dress” session with this great couple! Alexis and Alain, thank you very much for your kindness and hospitality, I hope these photographs take you and your families back to this great day, more to follow very soon! This amazing event was coordinated by Baku Events All photographs Elizabeth and Lindsey Medina.
Bride and groom and their families and wedding parties gathered for photographs prior to the ceremony… it was a very warm day to put it mildly and their efforts were greatly appreciated.
I think Alexis and Alain’s “first look” could have been a blog post all by itself, it was fun to photograph them when they first saw each other as bride and groom!
Wedding party and family photographs taken before the ceremony…
Alexis receives a private blessing from her father and soon to be husband immediately before the ceremony.
OK, I will confess… despite being there and the many hours spent editing, seeing the photographs of Alexis’ beautiful ceremony entrance here on the blog just gave me a fresh set of goosebumps!
The haceienda “casa de maquinas” was a beautiful stage for a ballet performance during the post ceremony cocktail hour.
Reception entrance and dancing…
After the dinner reception guests moved to the pool area for an after party and fireworks to finish off the night.
Merida, Yucatan, Wedding Photography, June and Alejandro, Hacienda Teya 3 26 11, TTD Azulik Tulum
May 10, 2011
Alejandro and June’s hacienda wedding in Merida, Yucatan… where to begin? We were fortunate to spend a great deal of time with this very sweet couple, starting off the day prior to the wedding with a bride and groom photo session at the Hacienda Teya and finishing up with a visit to the happy couple on their honeymoon in Tulum! (they invited us, honest!) The wedding day was full of photo opportunities, the bridal “getting ready” took place at the historic Gran Hotel in Merida’s “centro”, and it was so awesome that June and her party were able to literally cross the street to arrive at the Catholic ceremony at the very lovely Iglesia de la Tercera Orden. For those that are not familiar with Merida, this colonial city is home to many very special Catholic churches and June and Alejandro chose a beauty for their Catholic marriage celebration. I hope you will scroll all the way down for a little taste of the Hacienda wedding reception and the “eco chic” Tulum TTD session which was a fun adventure! June and Alex thank you so much, it has been wonderful to get to know the two of you and we appreciate all your collaboration along the way!
OK, this next image of June’s dashing groom is not going to do anything to dispel the idea that we are a little old fashioned here in Merida. :-)
You guessed right, there is a back story for the next photograph! It seems that back in the day before June and Alex started dated Alex commented that when he met the girl who would push/jump start his old Falcon he would marry her… and you know who that beautiful girl was!
Getting ready on the wedding day, El Gran Hotel.
The next image is one of my favorites, it just says Merida to me.
Just a few images from the reception at Teya…
And finally the trash the dress session in Tulum at an eco chic hotel called Azulick…muy rustico but a great spot for June and Alex’s final photo session!

Sergio and Caroline’s wedding was held at the very charming Hacienda San Jose near Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Guests traveled from all over the world to be a part Sergio and Caroline’s hacienda celebration. Greek Orhodox ceremony was held at sunset and followed by a night of dancing under the stars on the hacienda grounds.
Here are a few of the photographs that Lauren and I captured at this Yucatan wedding. Bridal preparation and portriats on the terrace of the hacienda prior to the ceremony:
