The Moon Palace wedding of Harmony and Justin was the perfect day envisioned by the bride who told us she wanted to “WOW” her guests. The couple traveled from Canada to Cancun to celebrate their wedding day with their closest family and friends in grand style. We first met the bride and groom during the getting ready time, the ladies sharing laughs and champagne in their Moon Palace suite and the gentlemen bonding over some cold beers in the bar. Bride Harmony wore a gown by David’s Bridal and a gorgeous head piece by Doloris Petunia, the pink sash on the dress tied together nicely with the bridesmaids and the accesories of the groom and his men. The beach ceremony was moving and fun, there were tears and laughter and a lot of hugs when they were pronounced man and wife.
After bridal party portraits on the beach with photographer Debora, the festivities continued on The Grand Terrace. Wedding coordinator Brenda Carreno put together a spectacular reception, the decor was sparkling and the floral arrangements were incredible. Guests were treated to a mariachi serenade and a dynamic fire show from Zuniga Productions, the WOW factor the bride had dreamed of becoming reality! The party continued with a whole lot of fun on the dance floor, an unforgettable fiesta for all. A little cake topper mishap had the bride lose her head (the cake topper bride, not Harmony herself!) , but a little scotch tape saved the day.
When we asked Harmony why they chose Del Sol Photography, here is what she shared with us:
Honestly – I fell in love with your photos — I am not an expert when it come to know the correct terminology — but I love how you captured the feeling and excitement and hope in each bride and grooms face and eyes… I also love the lighting and the UNDERWATER photos are AMAZING!!! Seriously breath taking… I spent a lot of time looking at each of the photographers styles to see whose I would mesh with…I think its very important to feel comfortable with your photographer so that the images feel natural and not posed or cheesy…I had originally considered bringing a Canadian photographer because I didn’t want to settle with just any photographer that the resort would provide — I actually want to be able to see their work before hand — I loved you website and getting to see the names of the photographers who took them… The funny thing is when I first told Justin about the importance of hiring the photographer her really wasn’t on the same page with me — UNTIL — I found your website and showed him your work!! Tonight at dinner with his parents — he actually had me pull up your website to show his Mom and Dad the underwater photos of your shoot with Evelyn and Logan.
Photographer Debora was there to capture all the emotion and details, please be sure to see the whole slideshow! Del Sol Photography thanks Harmony and Justin for sharing their Moon Palace wedding with us, we wish you both a lifetime of joy together!
