Tulum Wedding Photography at Saasil Kantenah | Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico
This wedding was straight out of a movie - that’s the best way to describe it! Absolutely picture perfect. A gorgeous bride and groom, the most incredible palm tree lined, beachfront property in Mexico, and a party that went until 2 am! However, that wasn’t the best part for me. The reason why I loved this wedding so, so much is because it was for two of my very favorite people. The bride is one of my oldest and very best friends, and the groom was adopted into our friend family very soon after we met him! Capturing all of their wedding day memories for them was the absolute best experience - one that I feel so honored to have had!
While this wedding was hands down the most stunning I have ever seen, the thing that stood out to me most was not the location, but what an incredible gathering of friends and family it was. Kate and Liam emphasized their guests above everything else, making sure that every detail was taken care of to ensure that everyone had the best weekend ever! The reciprocated love for Kate and Liam was obvious - people traveled thousands of miles to celebrate with them in this beautiful place, and the bear hugs, ear-to-ear smiles and sounds of laughter never seemed to stop. The couple envisioned a huge weekend long party for all of their friends and family, and boy, did they deliver! From the traditional Mexican-style welcome dinner the first night, to the beach front BBQ the next day (complete with a churro truck!), and the endless list of activities they recommended for the time in between, the weekend was completely filled with fun, laughter and of course, tons of love.
I had the HARDEST time choosing favorites from this day, because everything about it was so special to me (and incredibly gorgeous!!). That said, here is a small sampling of my favorite images of some of my favorite people and their amazing wedding day!
Kate!! Could you possibly be any more perfect?!?
GQ through and through!!
**squealing** over this babe!!!
I've never seen nerves melt away like they did during this first look!! I think Kate and Liam would agree that doing a first look was one of the best decisions they made!
The venue, Saasil Kantenah, was literally breathtaking. A large beach filled with palm trees that backed up to the Mexican jungle!! What more could a girl want?!
Complete with this gorgeous old church on the property!!!
Love, love, LOVE!

Oh, hey, look!! It's me!! Having the time of my life!!
MORE JAW DROPPING BEAUTY!!! Yes, there is a palm tree inside of this clear tent!

This light was everything!! I know I say this all the time, but sunset pictures are going to be the favorites from your wedding day, I promise you!!!

In traditional Mexican style, the bride and groom broke a pinata before their reception!!
