The second day of Neha and Tunde's destination wedding in Riviera Maya (Cancun), Mexico, hosted the Hindu Indian Ceremony.  This day was the longest and I felt it best to break the day into two postings, one for the getting ready and ceremony and the other for the formals and reception.  The ceremony was held on the rooftop deck of the Azul Sensatori Resort ... at noon.  Did I mention it was HOT!  It was very, very hot ... and humid (the killer), but with wet towels in hand, and on head as was the case with some (including me), umbrellas held for shade, and plenty, plenty, plenty of water, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the colorful and beautiful ceremony that united Neha and Tunde in marriage!  It was beautiful!

I want to include another thank you to our Associate Photographer and friend, Angie Gomez, for traveling with me to this amazing event and doing such an amazing job as my second photographer ... you slammed it out of the park Angie ... great work!!!

The second day of Neha and Tunde's wedding in Riviera Maya (Cancun), Mexico was very long, so we felt it best to break the posting in two parts - one for the getting ready and ceremony and the other for formals and the reception ... mostly reception.  As with the day before, this was a great reception - one giant party full of excitement and energy!  A photographer's dream!!  It rained a little, but no one minded in the extreme heat and humidity that lingered well into the night.

After all the hectic activities over the past two days, which left little time to do many posed photographs, we all headed out to relax, take a swim and do a trash the dress shoot!  We headed south of Playa del Carmen to the Yucatan's famed cenotes to take a refreshing dip (truth be told, the water was a tad chilly) and take some underwater shots in it's crystal clear waters.  I had been really excited about visiting the cenotes and they did not disappoint ... they were absolutely stunning!  From there we headed to the beach to finish up the session.  It was a lovely way to spend more time getting to know Neha and Tunde and to wrap up a spectacular destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico!  Thank you both so much for the experience ... it was true privilege!!!

Being that I wanted to comment on EVERY SINGLE PICTURE, I figured it made the most sense to wait until the very end of the postings. :) Ummm... WOW! Tina, We are amazing! lol. I had the most INCREDIBLE time...incredible being a complete and total understatement!!! Not only was this a beautiful wedding in every way a wedding can be beautiful--Beautiful people, Beautiful decorations, Beautiful customs--It was THE MOST humbling experience of LOVE I have ever encountered. With so much negativity and hate in the world, your families were brought together as one by nothing more than, as your mother gorgeously stated, "Just love." No hindrances of race or religion were in sight, and that is so beautiful. Thus, making it so much more than just a wedding for me, but a life experience I could have never received any where else, at any other time in my life. I was where I was supposed to be (by default, thanks to Kevin -sorry Kevin, but you are appreciated :)).
I want to thank Neha, Tunde, and ALL of their beautiful family members, for giving Tina and I the opportunity to photograph this truly one-of-a-kind wedding! Neha & Tunde, You are an inspiration of love and I feel so blessed to have met you. To Kevin, thank you for having prior arrangements that allowed me to take your place in Cancun (hahaha-you were missed). And to Tina (and Kevin), thank you for trusting my "eye" and for giving me the guidance, strength and support to continue to grow. I am still utterly grateful to be a part of the Sierra Blanco team/family and LOVE YOU BOTH to pieces! Here's to Neha, Tunde, their wedding, their pictures :), and to the future. SALUD!!

Tina and Kevin - these images are breathtaking. I have never seen anything like this and am in awe! I am so honored to have had you photograph our wedding and hope to have a trash the dress session one day too! -Jessica (White) Taylor

Your collaboration on this wedding brought me so much joy today! It's more than a wedding album; it’s a testament to humanity’s cultural prosperity. Pure magic, pure love. Cheers!

Angeles and Cesar were the winners of our "Wedding Photography Giveaway" this year and it couldn't have gone to a nicer, more deserving couple!  Though Angeles now lives in Phoenix, she is a Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point), Mexico, native and she really wanted to get married in her hometown surrounded by all her family and friends.  Ceasar just wanted to give his bride-to-be everything she wanted for her wedding day.  The choice of being married in Mexico was easier on her friends and family financially, but left the couple strained financially themselves.  We know what it is like to struggle financially and were so happy to be able to help.  The couple's family and friends did not disappoint, and on May 14th, 2011, it seemed all of Rocky Point came together to give Angeles and Cesar the wedding of their dreams!!  Thank you both for having us as you wedding photographers ... it was a true joy!

Here it is ... the mother of all wedding days, 10-10-10!!  Melissa and Joseph chose this as their date (as did many other: we probably had upwards of at least 40 inquiries for that date alone) and we felt blessed to be a part of it.  It took place on Coronado Island in San Diego, California on a beautiful, mild, sunny day ... simply stunning!
 
As this date fell on a Sunday, Melissa thought it would be cool to have a daytime wedding and set it up as a Sunday brunch complete with various cooking stations ... yum!  I do have to say, it was a little difficult for us as we had a 9 hour wedding that Saturday in Phoenix that didn't end until after midnight.  We went stright from the wedding, drove overnight and checked into a hotel for one hour to rest before heading to meet the bride at 8:30AM to start all over again.  It was well worth a little fatigue though :-).  At the end of the day, we headed over to the beach to get some amazing shots in near perfect light!  Thank you both for having us!
