What a joy my job is. It takes me on grand adventures to destinations to celebrate peoples love and lives.
This beautiful journey was to Dream’s Riveria Cancun Mexico!
I’ve got to hand it to Yousiff (mr) on this one guys. He’s so incredibly romantic and 100% in love with his beautiful bride. It comes out in so many ways, it’s clear and intentional. I mean look below… it shows in my smiles at his bride, the horse he rode in on to surprise her, the monkey’s at the reception, the special dance he learned with her, and the other special dance she didn’t know about. The day was full of surprises and joy, just as it should be.
I also am so in love with the fact that Kelly (mrs) is absolutely aware of his sweetness and loves him back so much for his romance and tenderness. She notices him. She doesn’t brush past his romance, she embraces it, find great joy in it, and returns his love wholeheartedly.
I feel like sometimes it’s so rare in our culture to find a couple that notices how the other one loves them best.
We often get stuck in our heads with our own love languages and forget the ones we love might speak a bit differently. These two, however, have this skill down! This will do so much for their marriage and the years ahead of them. We all know that marriage isn’t easy, but it’s good, it’s all well worth the struggles.
Enjoy this beautiful destination Cancun wedding and I highly recommend reading the love languages (I’ve posted a link to the bottom of the post!) Everything from their unique and clever passport invitations to horses at sunset this is a darling couple with a beautiful withstanding love.
Another notable detail is that Kelly loves her girls so much, that she adamantly made the point that they were just as important as her on her wedding day and she def needed lots of photos of them. SOOOOO sweet right? So this wedding has a lot of beautiful lady photos. lol.
My husband is my second shooter for all destination weddings but this couple asked if he would be willing to do a video instead.
“SURE” I said for him… haha sorry babe. So this husband and wife duo just turned photo-video team
. Now, let me just say, video is a TON of work, so please don’t ask me to shoot video here in Arizona. I won’t do it. lol. My poor husband is so good to me. You can hire my extremely talented friend Denver with Cineprose. He already has packages worked into my pricing so it’s a win-win.
Nate & I, have another photo-video husband-wife team coming up in a few weeks at Dreams Riveria Tulum. So we will have some more Mexico fun for you in a few months.
Oh yes, and if you are curious about the love languages I was referring to grab a copy of this book on Amazon today! It will change your life, relationship, and help you feel love from others that you might be missing.
