It has been far too long since I’ve looked back on this gorgeous destination wedding in Cancun! Last December, I had the honor of traveling out of the country to capture Lindsi and Luke’s romantic beach wedding at the Royalton Riviera in Cancun, Mexico. I loved the change of scenery, especially because December in Texas can tend to be a bit bland. Cancun was as vibrant and beautiful as you’d expect, but the stars of the show were Luke and Lindsi, whose love was truly the focal point of the weekend!
From the moment I first met the friends and family of the couple, I experienced nothing but warmth and gratitude. You could tell that everyone was just so excited to be there celebrating Luke and Lindsi and was looking forward to a magical getaway together!
We began the wedding day in the resort spa where all of the ladies laughed to old stories and shared inside jokes together. Once the bride and groom were dressed and prepared, they exchanged a beautiful first look! I loved seeing their reactions to one another – some couples cry their eyes out, but Lindsi and Luke’s expressions clearly said, “I cannot WAIT to marry you.” So sweet!
Although Lindsi and Luke’s big day turned out just gorgeous, the threat of rain did loom overhead for awhile. They had originally planned for a beachfront ceremony, but ended up having to opt for a covered rooftop option instead. In my opinion, it was just as lovely because the views were absolutely stunning! The rain ended up holding off just in time for us to get all of the photos we needed (and more) outside!
Lindsi and Luke partied the night away in one of the resort’s indoor spaces, and it all turned out just beautifully! I don’t know if I’ve seen a more lively crowd – everyone definitely knew how to celebrate and probably could have gone longer! We sent the couple off with sparklers, concluding the happiest day for the happiest couple ever.
I have absolutely loved getting to know Lindsi and Luke and their friends and family. Everyone made this weekend so easy and fun – and I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to the couple’s planner, Lindsay Foerster with Foerster Travel! Thank you for letting me be a part of this destination wedding in Cancun!
