Vidanta Wedding Ceremony | Tamara & Elaine

At Tamara and Elaine’s beachside ceremony in the Riviera Maya, it was all about sharing the love.

Close friends were treated like family, and the couple made an extra effort to include their loved ones on their marriage journey. For example, Tamara and Elaine had a group of their closest friends form a circle around them during the ceremony, to represent how they’ll lean on their friends for support and encouragement throughout their marriage. Take a look at the sweet celebration of love and friendship below in a Vidanta Wedding:

Tamara’s bouquet reflected her unique, sparkling personality and style. The bouquet was crafted by a friend out of jewels in Tamara’s favorite colors (which was also the color scheme for the wedding).

Vidanta resort pulled out all the stops for the ceremony! Cascading flowers framed the altar, and a saxophonist greeted guests with smooth tunes as they took their seats in the warm white sand.

Tamara’s brother was all smiles as he walked his gorgeous sister down the aisle. As you can see, guests were already joyously celebrating with streamers, claps, and big grins as Tamara approached Elaine to exchange “I Do”s.

One thing I really loved about this wedding ceremony is that guests were asked to put their phones away during the ceremony, and to avoid taking pictures. That meant all eyes were on the couple during this solemn moment, with no distractions — which made capturing the emotions of the day so easy. You can see it in the ceremony photos below:

I am so happy for Tamara and Elaine, they have a such an amazing group of family and friends who love and support them.

I loved capturing a final ceremony kiss between the newlyweds after all of the guests filtered out. Sharing moments alone together during a whirlwind wedding becomes extra special and allows couples to slow down and savor the day — since it all goes by so quickly!
