Heather and Nadeem’s Hard Rock Riviera Maya wedding is such a beautiful love story. Nadeem came to the United States all the way across the Atlantic Ocean from London. He moved on his own for work to Dallas, Texas and he didn’t know anyone. Heather was a neighbor and as they got to know each other…they just knew they were right for each other and today was evidence of their love for each other! Heather’s beautiful wedding dress is elegant but well suited for the warm Mexican summer days. She picked a nice light contrasting color for the bridesmaids and the groom’s ensemble to match. Simple elegance is beautiful and shows in all the photographs. Heather’s younger sister was also her bridesmaid and seeing them share this special day together was wonderful. As you can imagine, they had lots of loving tender moments together. You can see her helping her sister with her wedding dress here. A precious moment I wanted to capture for them. Heather and her mom are very close. During the getting ready photo session, her mom gives her a little gift and both mother and daughter have a loving moment together. Her mom was so proud and happy for her oldest daughter and it showed all weekend long. She always had a beautiful smile on her face. The groom’s getting ready photographs were so much fun! Best of all the room was quiet orderly so the getting ready photographs really makes them pop. These guys were dashing and just having fun with Nadeem. They were doing crazy stuff all weekend long. The groom and groomsmen kept cool with their light colored attire. You can see the sunny day glowing over their wedding and these boys are looking dashing and fresh. Here is Nadeem arriving at the wedding ceremony and getting ready to be congratulated by his dad. Such a great moment for father and son! The Hard Rock Riviera Maya is really well designed for weddings consisting of adult couples and families with kids. They have the “Hacienda” resort catering to families and the adjoining “Heaven” resort for adults only. This allows your guests to intermingle between the two as they can cater to everyone’s needs. The wedding ceremony views at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya are spectacular. The ocean breeze and shade from the palapa keeps everyone cool and enjoying the wedding ceremony. The highlight for me was to see their uniqueness shine as Nadeem can always say just the right thing to make Heather laugh…even at the alter he puts a sweet smile on his new bride’s face. What a delight to see everyone enjoying their loving moment. The Hard Rock Riviera Maya grounds are beautiful and so diverse. It gives us wonderful bridal photographs as we walk around and everywhere we look is a postcard perfect photograph waiting to be captured. Surrounded by friends and family coming from all around the world: Australia, Bermuda, Canada, United States, United Kingdom and Africa there was no stopping the fun we all had. Heather loves to dance and Sofia was glad to keep her company as these two rocked the dance floor. These bridesmaids thought ahead and wore comfy shoes for the nighttime dance festival. I love when couples bring their unique style to their weddings and I make sure to capture it so they can remember it for the rest of their lives! I love their idea of having the firework sparklers going off as they cut their cake – a great touch to make the moment shine and keep all the guests’ attention on the caking cutting ceremony. A great ending…once again Nadeem says a private joke to Heather and has her laughing away! Congratulations to this beautiful couple. I wish you love and happiness for the rest of your lives!
