Rochelle and Victoria were married on May 9th with a chic Cancun beach wedding ceremony at the Hyatt Zilara, followed by a reception in the resort’s Beach Gazebo.
For us, this wedding was very special and emotional. These two incredible, charismatic women and the love they feel for each other radiated through the camera and was recorded in all the photos we took!
Victoria and Rochelle had previously visited Cancun and had an engagement shoot with us. They were delighted with the session, so we were excited to capture their wedding day to make sure that the most important day of their lives was a unique experience of emotion.
Victoria and Rochelle got ready at the resort. There was beautiful light that came through the huge windows in the room.
Victoria’s mother was so overcome with happiness as she watched her get ready. The relationship between a mother and daughter is so unique and impressive- especially when she watches her little girl get into her bridal gown!
There was a sentimental moment between the two of them, filled with love and excitement as together they prepared for this special day.
While the girls were getting ready, Victoria snuck over to us and asked, “Do you know anything about my surprise??”
We apologized and had to tell her that we didn’t know anything about it, but now our curiosity was peaked! Victoria confessed that Rochelle had something special planned but had kept it a secret.
All of us had to contain our excitement until the ceremony to find out what Rochelle had planned….
Victoria’s best friend had just become a mother, so no one expected her to make it to the wedding from so far away. Well, Rochelle kept it a secret that she was able to come to share in this unique moment in Victoria’s life.
So when Victoria came down the aisle and spotted her dearest friend sitting in the front row, her eyes filled with joy. Knowing this was Rochelle’s “surprise,” their eyes met and Victoria’s expression was a beautiful mixture of love and gratitude.
The moment was simply incredible and filled with so much love! Victoria’s expression of joy was emotional for everyone- including us! So thank you, Rochelle for keeping such a wonderful secret to allow us all to witness such a beautiful surprise.
At the reception, when the first dance began, the moon and stars glowed above. The full moon glowed overhead the gazebo and a gentle sea breeze caused Victoria’s dress to billow out, making her look like a princess in a fairy tale!
The reception ended in an awesome pool party, with the guests enjoying a relaxing dip in the pool. Good music, good drinks and good friends came together to be a wonderful ending to an emotional day!
Thank you, Victoria and Rochelle, for trusting us from the very first moment. For us, it is not simply a job because when what you do what you love, everything has another color and it becomes in something magical we all share with happiness. We loved meeting your family and friends. Thank you for allowing us to keep this memory for the rest of our lives!
