Principal photographer: Melissa
A laid back and “beachy casual” wedding in Playa del Carmen, Canadians Leanne and Scott brought their closest family and friends to paradise to celebrate their nuptials their way. The couple are big fans of Playa del Carmen and Mexico so it was only appropriate that they have a destination wedding. The day began with some “getting ready” fun at the private villas Casas del Sol Vista & AltaVista in Playacar. The festivities then moved to the popular beachside bar “Wah Wah” in Playa del Carmen for a ceremony in the sand. With hot pink and orange decor and details, it was a bright and dynamic celebration! Bride Leanne wore a strapless gown by David’s Bridal with a lovely pink sash while groom Scott was looking handsome in Cubavera. The reception was a rocking affair, live band The Nasty Bastards (local legends) took to the stage and got everyone dancing after their private dinner in the upstairs terrace. Kim Johnston of Wah Wah ensured that it was a GREAT party for all!
Photographer Melissa was there to capture all the fun, please be sure to see the whole slideshow. Del Sol Photography thanks Leanne and Scott for inviting us to share in your wedding day and we wish you both a lifetime of joy, laughs and Mexico travel together!
Thank you sooooooooooo much to Melissa and everyone at Del Sol…the photos we’ve seen so far have been amazing and really capture the fun we had on our special day! As a plus-sized bride I am very self-conscious, but the photographers made me feel so at ease and most of the time I didn’t even know they were there! Friends have commented that this was the first time they’ve ever seen me in photos with a toothy smile and having the time of my life
We love Playa del Carmen and are so happy that we got to share our favourite place in the world with our closest family & friends and I think we’ve made “Playa addicts” out of them all!
We hope to return next year and maybe even do a “trash the dress” that we didn’t get around to this time — Leanne and Scott
