Grand Sunset Princess Wedding – Getting Dressed | Ursula & Dan

On this occasion, I had the pleasure to be a part of Ursula and Dan’s beach wedding — we shared a fantastic time in Playa del Carmen! This lovely couple is from Des Moine, Iowa, and they celebrated this unique moment of their lives at the fabulous Grand Sunset Princess Resort located in the Riviera Maya.

A Grand Sunset Princess Resort wedding is a wonderful option for a beautiful destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. This resort has many beautiful places to photograph with natural backgrounds, including gardens, swimming pools, bridges, beautiful trees, tropical flowers, and more. The location also gives couples and wedding guests the chance to enjoy the beach, which has nice white sand, palm trees, and incredible blue water.

Platinum Hotel

Ursula and Dan’s beautiful rooms were in the Platinum Suite Zone. It’s the perfect spot for getting ready since the rooms are spacious and very close to the beach and ceremony location. It was very relaxing because it was so easy to walk to everything!

The lovely couple were surrounded by family and friends on their big day. Ursula’s  bridesmaids were some close friends and her soon-to-be sister-in-law; Dan also had close friends as his groomsmen.

I just loved her delicate accessory that she wore on her feet. It was not only comfortable, but original and elegant at the same time.

After getting dressed for her Princess Beach Wedding ceremony, Ursula had time to pose for some nice portraits with her bridesmaids. They also looked fantastic in their turquoise matching dresses.

It was a pleasure for me to be part of Ursula’s getting dressed moment. As a wedding photographer, I appreciate every intimate moment with the bride and have the chance to be part of this previous moment which is full of emotions and excitement. Now this loving bride had some terrific and unforgettable intimate moments in beautiful photographs.
