Allyson and Neal

Grand Velas Wedding, Playa del Carmen, Mexico


This was an incredible day from start to finish! Lauren and I were delighted to feel the love and happiness flow as we documented Allyson and Neal’s wedding day at the beautiful Grand Velas Riviera Maya Resort near Playa del Carmen, Mexico. From the bride and groom’s amazing “first look” to the gorgeous ceremony on the sand and the beautiful moon lit reception this destination wedding was truly a joy to photograph.

Of course it did not hurt that some of our very favorite wedding professionals were on Allyson and Neal’s team. We just loved working with wedding planner Maria Elena Galicia of Playa Wedding! Thank you, Maria Elena for all your help and consideration throughout the day! And of course we have to give a shout out to Adrian and the team of Styling Trio Riviera Maya, because when we see Adrian we know the day is off to a great start.

Loved, loved, loved the flowers that Allyson chose to decorate the reception tables! So much color and perfect with the colorful Mexican tile details.
