Cancun Destination Wedding – Nancy + Matt!

Cancun Destination Wedding Photographer at the Royalton Riviera Maya

I love Chicago, but I’m sorry, I will trade the cold winter days of January for the warm beaches of Cancun any day! So I was beyond excited to travel down to Cancun to be Nancy + Matt’s destination wedding photographer! The morning I left Chicago, there was icy rain hitting the roads…and when I landed, I was ready to put on my shorts and sunglasses! If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out Nancy + Matt’s Chicago Riverwalk Engagement Photos!

Be sure to scroll down to read more and see more photos from their epic Cancun destination wedding! As their destination wedding photographer, I wanted to give you a sense of place with this first wedding picture! You can see the palm trees and the beautiful Royalton Riviera Cancun beach!

The Royalton Riviera Cancun has a cute little structure for wedding ceremonies – and it makes for a great spot for wedding photos! Photographer’s Tip: Be sure to notice leading lines and geometric shapes!

It’s only fitting that I choose a photo from their first dance as one of my “Photographer’s Favs” – their first date was salsa dancing! And yes, they are having their reception on the beach!

One thing I love about these two: They know how to laugh and have a good time! Those that know them know what I am talking about! And the perfectly blue-green ocean behind them is pretty amazing too!

Have to include a couple photos of my friends in attendance – We spent more time together at the buffet than at the beach! Sorry Kav, you were in a whole bunch of photos during the ceremony! =)

Nancy + Matt: Thank you for having me as your photographer for your destination wedding! It was such a great time and we captured some amazing photos! If only we could just live there for a couple months each year!
