Carolina + Vincent | Merida, Mexico Destination Wedding

Carolina and I attended high school together back in Tucson, AZ where I grew up.  I started a life in SF after college, and Carolina and Vincent met in Washington DC.  Through the magic of Facebook we rebooted our friendship cross country, and when it came time for her to marry, we were thrilled that she and Vincent brought us with them to document their destination wedding in Merida, Mexico at Hacienda Chichi Suarez.  It was quite a day.  The Hacienda was absolute photographic candy, and they definitely know how to party!  It was great to see an old friend end up so happy, and I’m so glad we could be a part of it.

*On a technical note I just completed a revamp of the blog design, and this post is the first with the new look!  The design is much more to my minimalist taste, and the photos are now 1000px instead of 850px.

It’s a little known fact that tequila aids in the wedding dress fitting process considerably.

Malarie got these next two of Vincent:

We could have shot portraits here with these two all day long.

A few of the days details:

This might be my favorite “entrance” photo yet.

Vincent’s family was there all the way from France, so we got to use our rusty French in addition to our even rustier Spanish.  Here they made up a song to serenade them.

Thanks so much for bringing us along on this part of your adventure!
