Ocean Riviera Paradise wedding
I had been looking forward to Kate and Ricky’s Ocean Riviera Paradise wedding for such a long time! These two decided to tie the knot in the beautiful Riviera Maya for a Mexico wedding. They saw their friends get married in the Dominican Republic and they decided a destination wedding was perfect for them too.
Kate and Ricky have known each other for years. Both their dads are best friends so they first met as family friends. Ricky asked Kate out one night when he was a little bit drunk and had the courage. The rest is history!
The Ocean Riviera Paradise Wedding Ceremony
They decided to change their ceremony from the beachfront to a private rooftop terrace overlooking palm trees towards the ocean. The ceremony was intimate and private for their guests only. It was away from the hustle of hotel life. The glass balcony surrounded the terrace to show off the view.
Kate and Ricky married under a white gazebo at 4:30pm. The gorgeous Mexican sunlight beamed upon them as they were surrounded by their closest friends and family. They even fingerprinted on their marriage certificate for authenticity in true Mexican style! All the guests got up to dance to their traditional mariachi band during the drinks reception.
The bridal party and I headed down to the beach for some sunset portraits, including a champagne spray!
We stole some time away to capture photos around the gorgeous hotel grounds. Soon after, they sat down for their wedding breakfast. The wedding breakfast included more tequila than most other wedding breakfasts I’ve been to!
Huge thank you for trusting me to capture your incredible Ocean Riviera Paradise wedding!
