We are so excited to share Kayla & Cody’s Picturesque Mexico Wedding with you! As winter in Winnipeg seems to keep dragging on, this is the perfect way to enjoy a little escape and feel all the love and happiness these two shared with their family and friends in the sun and warmth of Mexico!
We met Kayla and Cody about a year ago and instantly connected with them! Everything just seemed to click! We were lucky enough to travel not once but twice with them! The first time was for their engagement photos in Kelowna. Seven months later we met at the Winnipeg International Airport at 3am to board a flight for the Royalton Riviera in Cancun, Mexico! Guys, you planned the perfect time to get away! I’m sure were weren’t the only ones checking the Winnipeg forecast while we were away!
The morning of the wedding was spent with their wedding parties relaxing and taking it all in! The details were perfect, the sun was shining and there was love all around! Kayla and Cody, you seriously have some of the most amazing friends! Everyone was so excited and happy for you!!
We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting for their wedding! There is just something amazing about seeing so much green at the end of January! And it was so amazing that the only white we could see was the sand and Kayla’s dress!
We planned the first look to happen in a quiet little pathway overlooking the ocean. With palm trees swaying in the breeze, Kayla made here way to Cody. First looks are honestly one of our favourite parts of the wedding day! We’re almost as nervous as the bride and groom – it’s so exciting to see the anticipation and smiles. And when Cody turned to see his bride to be, cheers from the wedding party (and us) went up! The perfect moment!
We had so many options for where to take pictures! Who couldn’t resist walking barefoot in the sand along the ocean? And Tiki huts – yes please! Our favourite moment was when Kayla and Cody were walking through the greenery and the sun broke through the clouds!
At this point everyone was ready for a little break and went to freshen up and get ready for the ceremony. Kayla and Cody’s good friend Father Gerry was able to come down and perform a very special ceremony for them. What better backdrop could you as for then an open air chapel overlooking the ocean?
Everyone had such a great time at the reception, they didn’t even notice when we snuck Kayla and Cody away for a few night time photos! We’re sure you guys thought we were crazy when we were talking about the fire lights! Thank you so much for going along with our creative ideas! You totally nailed it!
Kayla & Cody, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We are so happy for you and loved every minute we got to spend with you, your families and your friends. Let’s all do it again next year ok?
Stay tuned for part 2 of their blog post – the days after when we had a little bit of fun in the sun and on the beach!
A special thank you to all the vendors who helped make this day possible!
