Alyssa and Jon were married at the clean and modern Playacar Palace in the gated community of Playacar right outside of the center of Playa del Carmen. Let me back up...
About 6 months before, I get a sweet email from Alyssa wanting to meet for coffee as they were scouting resorts down here to get married and of course, looking for photographers. And it was a date! We met Alyssa and Jon at the popular Ah Cacao here in Playa, and instantly bonded. They were our people! After that, we were hired for their wedding day and couldn't wait to see them again... and we did! A few months later, we happened to be in their hood in the States so we were able to meet up yet again for a few Mai Tais! This literally never happens in destination wedding photography- so it was a real treat!
When their wedding day finally arrived, it couldn't have been more perfect....and I'm not just saying that to be nice. They had the most beautiful day here I've seen in over 3.5 years! The weather was about 75-80 degrees, a very light wind, gorgeous skies... sigh. If only every day could be like that!
Alyssa and Jon were also high school sweethearts, so this day had been a long time coming. From making-out during high school chemistry class (haha I didn't forget that), to traveling abroad - they've shared a lot of memories together.
Alyssa and her girls were boho chic and Alyssa herself wore a stunning number from Grace Loves Lace (one of my fave brands!). By the end of the night, we were friends with everyone! Although they asked us to stay and party, we had another wedding the next day and had to be responsible business owners ;) All in all, it was the perfect destination wedding and Alyssa and Jon couldn't have looked more happy.
But we shall meet again soon Alyssa and Jon, miss you! (And congrats again!)
