Now Jade Wedding Photos | Kim & James

For Kim and James’ celebration in Mexico, this destination wedding at the Now Jade Resort in Cancun was all about new beginnings. This is both Kim and James’ second marriage, and the couple were eager to honor the coming together of their families. Kim created her gorgeous bouquet herself using five different types of flowers — one for each of the grown children she and James now share together. The couple also wanted to memorialize their loved ones that were no longer with them. Kim wrapped her bouquet in a piece of lace from her mother’s wedding dress, and James chose a purple boutonniere in honor of his late mother, since purple was her favorite color.

The elopement was intimate and full of love, and the Now Jade Resort provided the perfect backdrop to capture the new couple’s playfulness! Enjoy Kim and James’ Now Jade wedding photos from paradise below:

The Royal Playa del Carmen Wedding Ceremony | Rebekah & Eli

Rebekah and Eli’s heartfelt The Royal Playa del Carmen wedding ceremony beside the beach was full of love — and full of laughter and a few funny moments, too! The ceremony was a family affair, with Rebekah’s father Gene serving as the ceremony officiant. The tropical reception bursting with color came together with the help of Rebekah’s sister Rachel Haynes, who served as the wedding planner. Capturing the moment when Rebekah and Eli’s union became official was such an honor. Enjoy a peek at the couple’s ceremony and reception photos below:

The Royal Playa del Carmen Wedding Portraits | Rebekah & Eli

The couple’s portrait session may just be my favorite part of photographing a wedding — it’s a chance to capture the bride and groom alone together at last, sharing sweet moments with one another on one of the most important days of their lives. In Rebekah and Eli’s The Royal Playa del Carmen wedding portraits, you really see the special connection that the couple share. The resort itself provided some beautiful backdrops and interesting architecture that framed the couple beautifully, then, we took to the sand for a special seaside photoshoot.

Explore Rebekah and Eli’s stunning portraits below:
