The Riviera Maya wedding of Lauren and Mike was a truly beautiful and elegant event. The bride and groom wanted a grand escape from the harsh winter of Chicago and were looking forward to an extended wedding celebration with their family and friends in paradise. The Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso was the perfect fit, a luxurious resort with impressive design and decor, the columns and gazebos of the architecture create a great contrast to the lush gardens and natural elements of the property. Bride Lauren was aglow in her gown by La Sposa bridal and her bridesmaids were lovely in their formal gowns in tangerine. Groom Mike was handsome in his Hugo Boss suit, love the pop of color with turquoise ties of the groomsmen.
After the sunset ceremony on the beach, the newlyweds and their guests shared congratulatory cocktails and a portrait session. Wedding coordinator Viridiana Valencia of the Iberostar Resorts assemble a great Riviera Maya wedding day for the couple, the reception in the La Brisa ballroom was out of this world! The lighting and decor were chic and warm, an inviting environment for the newlyweds and their guests, gorgeous flowers and delicious cuisine, it all came together for a wonderful day full of love.
When we asked Lauren why they chose Del Sol Photography for their Riviera Maya wedding day, here is what she shared with us:
Everything! The rave reviews are what brought me to your website initially, and I’ve pretty much looked at every single picture on there and have been thoroughly impressed. My fiance has started teasing me that it’s a good thing we’re engaged because my whole internet history is filled with pictures of people getting married! I love the creativity and I see it in everything from those stunning under water trash the dress sessions to capturing those special sentimental moments at ceremonies when the guests don’t even realize they’re on camera. The colors in your photos are so vivid and exciting. I want to be the people in those pictures and I don’t even know them. I would love for people to think that about our wedding pictures.
Photographer Debora was there to capture all the love, emotion and details, please be sure to see the whole slideshow! We had a fun day with the couple and were excited that they joined us for a cenote trash the dress shoot too! Del Sol Photography sends our big thanks to Lauren and Mike for inviting us to share in your Riviera Maya wedding, we wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!
