I cannot believe it has already been over a week since our Mexico adventure with the newlyweds and their friends and family! We were truly honored that we were able to be a part of this gorgeous destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas. This is what wedding dreams are made of! From the beautiful view to the gorgeous couple, this day was absolute perfection and we are so incredibly excited to share! Also, we cannot forget that all-inclusive resorts are the way to go ALWAYS!
I definitely came home with a taco baby with all the tacos I had. However, so worth it!
Los Cabos is famous for its beautiful rock formation just off the shore. The couple took all of their friends and family on a sunset cruise that circled the rocks. The beauty of the view and the light hitting the water was so serene. There were even seals laying on the rocks! We were definitely all excited about the seals!
Our boat circled the rocks and we watched the sunset right over the horizon. We might have gotten a little seasick along with the videographer but it was totally worth that view!
We woke up that morning to rain. Let me tell you when you have been at the resort for 3 days with beautiful sunshine and then the day you have been waiting for has a rainy forecast, frustration can really set in! Luckily the rain cleared away and we had nothing but sunny skies the rest of the day. It was definitely hot and humid, but I would rather have the humidity than the rain!
Ashley is a photographer, so she thought of everything! The timeline was absolute perfection. She carved out time for the first look, portraits, and more. The details were stunning and everything came together beautifully. Planning a wedding is tough. I cannot imagine planning a destination wedding across the country. So many moving parts and components and yet she pulled it off seamlessly.
We took many incredible images the day of and of course on this trip. But the moment that stands out the most for us and was like icing on the cake, was the moment we ran into some horses on the beach. For those who know our bride, Ashley knows how much she adores these beautiful creatures. While venturing to the beach for portraits we ran into these ponies who were being escorted by a young man. He graciously allowed Ashley to take the reigns and it was absolutely magical!
Casey & Ashley…
