Vidanta Wedding Reception | Tamara & Elaine

Tamara and Elaine’s beachside Vidanta wedding reception was all about togetherness.

The couple was keenly concerned with making all of their guests feel welcomed and loved. For example, right after Tamara and Elaine’s first dance, they invited all of their guests out on the dance floor with them. I think the bonds of friendship and family grew even stronger during this breathtaking reception!

Take a look at all the fun and beautiful details below:

From the food to the decor to the overflowing bouquets at the couple’s table, the Vidanta resort pulled out all the stops to create a sumptuous reception. The floral arrangements were done up in Tamara’s favorite colors: blue and purple.

There was so much energy out on the dance floor! I know Tamara and Elaine will love looking back at photographs like this and know that their guests were having the time of their lives.

What an incredible evening shared with loved ones. For this couple, sharing the journey through life with the ones they treasure most is what marriage is all about — I am so glad I was able to capture the beginning of this lifelong journey for them.
