Kami & Mark's Dreamy Destination Wedding at RIU Palace Riviera Maya in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

I have been jumping up and down excited to share this incredible wedding with you. In the spring of 2017, Kami reached out to me about her upcoming destination wedding, after I had offered her advice. We met up for coffee in Des Moines, and talked about all of the details. I did not have a chance to meet Mark or the rest of the family, until I arrived at the resort. But they were so inviting and made me feel like I had always known them - some of the most laid-back, down to earth people I've ever met. We all had the best time together, celebrating with Kami and Mark, it was an absolute dream in paradise! The perfect setting for their unique love story.

Located in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico at the gorgeous Riu Palace Riviera Maya, they exchanged vows in a stunning gazebo overlooking the ocean, with their closest family and friends. We walked around the resort - taking portraits on the beach, along the paths, and at the gazebo where the ceremony was, ending with their dance filled reception in one of the many restaurants. 

It was a true honor that Kami and Mark trusted me to come out to Mexico with them to capture it all, as their wedding unfolded and I also had a mini vacation, which was so amazing after a very long wedding and engagement season. I spent the last day of my stay at the resort exploring, swimming in the ocean and pool, having a few authentic Margaritas, and just relaxing before heading back to the airport in Cancun to fly home. This was a trip that I will never forget!
