Nickie and Josh's Mexico Wedding Story



Hey everybody!

Mere and I were so happy to be back in Mexico to photograph Josh and Nickie's Excellence Playa Mujeres wedding. Nickie and Josh are truly, truly a sincere and caring couple (which you'll easily see below), so I wanted their wedding to be perfect!  To me, it was a perfect day... though, we had to move the wedding 30 minutes later due to a little weather - it actually made the temperature amazing! As if I didn't love weddings at Excellence Playa Mujeres enough, I really loved seeing how the staff at EPM kick in to gear to make the wedding special (they even re-dried and covered all the guests' seats!

Anyway, look at some of my favorite moments from Nickie and Josh's beach wedding!  Here is our GORGEOUS bride putting the finishing touches on before she set out for the beach.

One of my favorite parts of shooting weddings at Excellence Playa Mujeres is that the lighting is always amazing because of the way the resort it laid out.  It suits our love for backlight perfectly!
Here comes the bride!

LOVE Josh's look here.  He's BEAMING!

The first kiss! (sorry about the videographer - he wasn't interested in planning ahead... I think his English wasn't so good???)  Love this scene nonetheless!

And here, look at how Nickie is looking at Josh.  SUCH a perfect moment!  (and how cool that the palm trees are chillin' in the background!)

More fun emotion (and cool light) during the couple's cake cutting...

Nickie and Josh's first dance was 50% adorable and 50% endearing.

I had to end on this really sweet moment. Ahhh! My heart explodes for this!


Y'all... I can't wait to show you their beach portraits tomorrow!  Get ready!


Talk to you soon,
Dale
