These wedding pictures captured by Leigh Skaggs Photography will light up your soul. Yep, they’re that lovely.
The lovely Natalie and Matthew had a destination wedding and chose to wed at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. They chose a blue and white colour scheme. Natalie explains, “I wanted to match the colour of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico water, and incorporate the sand colour.”
Natalie recalls, “It started to rain as soon as I walked out to go down the aisle. I walked all the way down to my groom and pastor and we decided to go back inside. Luckily the storm passed quickly and took a lot of the pressure off and it definitely made the wedding even more memorable.”
“Having 75 friends and family members travel to another country with nothing but having a good time in mind, made our wedding a dream come true. We feel we were able to have a 3-day long reception and it was an experience of a lifetime,” says Natalie.
More from the bride:
Did you DIY any details?
“We did create a CD of songs that we played at the wedding as wedding favors. We even had a CD label and cover designed with pictures of us and the wedding location. It was a big hit!”
What was your biggest challenge?
“Getting everyone informed of events while in Mexico. We created a group e-mail and sent out updates to all of our guest periodically leading up to our departure dates.”
What was your favourite moment?
“There are so many, every second was so perfect and more than I could have imagined. I would have to say the moments where I took the time to look around at all of our guests and my now husband and just take it all in. I hope that picture is forever ingrained in my memory.”
What’s your advice?
“Take little moments to spend time with your Groom throughout your wedding day and enjoy the day together.”
A million congratulations to the happy couple!
