Wedding photos at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas:

I was really excited to receive an email enquiry last summer from Brittney and Shawn about capturing their destination wedding at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas in Cancun, Mexico. I was even more honored that they decided to book me and organized all of my travel arrangements before having ever met face-to-face or even speaking over Skype.

It was wonderful to finally meet them in person at their welcome cocktail event at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas on the evening before the wedding. It gave me a chance to not only chat with Brittney and Shawn, but also get to know their bridal party and friends who I would be spending the weekend with.

Getting ready photos at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas:

The wedding day itself all started around mid-morning when I went to capture Brittney and the girls making their final preparations in one of the hotel suites. Brittney had decided that she wanted a few personalized shots with her two close bridesmaids so I captured some fun ones of them hiding beneath the sheets and kicking back on the bed. We also had some fun moments with the rest of her bridesmaids as they all did their makeup together, as well as capturing some close-ups of the bride having her last-minute touches done.

I then headed over to photograph Shawn and the boys as they were getting ready, with some shots of his dad fixing his cufflinks and a close-up of Shawn adjusting his bow tie. We also had time for a few portraits of the groom standing beside the hotel suite window and a candid of him reading a note card written by his bride-to-be. We then got the boys together for a group shot of Shawn and his groomsmen as they walked through the grounds of the Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas

With a bit more time before the wedding ceremony was due to start, I went back to photograph the girls again, capturing a playful pillow fight and an action shot of Brittney “popping” a bottle of champagne. I also photographed some special moments with her mom and future mother-in-law and a black and white photo of her bridesmaids “fluffing” her gorgeous gown.

After Brittney read an emotional note card from Shawn, it was then time for the first look with her dad. We also managed to squeeze in a couple of portraits of the bride looking absolutely stunning in the naturally-lit suite window before the wedding ceremony at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas took place.

Ceremony photos at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas:

Brittney and Shawn’s wedding ceremony was being held right on the beach overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea in what was a really idyllic setting. I captured Shawn’s reaction as he watched his bride being escorted down the aisle by her dad and some wide-angle shots of this picture-perfect backdrop.

One of Brittney’s bridesmaids was also the officiant for their ceremony, leading the couple as they exchanged vows and rings. Brittney and Shawn also performed a unique ritual during their wedding at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas where they both put letters in a carved wooden wine box to be read if they encountered any hurdles during their married life together.

Portraits at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas:

After Shawn carried Brittney down the aisle in a joyous recessional walk, the couple were congratulated warmly by family and friends. We had a bit of time scheduled in for a portrait session in this loved-up moment, capturing shots of the couple walking between the sun loungers outside the Omni Cancun and a more seductive photo kissing beneath one of the thatched beach umbrellas.

Reception photos at Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas:

Brittney and Shawn’s wedding reception was being held right next to their ceremonial site on the beachfront overlooking the Caribbean. After the couple’s grand entrance, they performed an elaborate choreographed first dance which incorporated dramatic twirls and dips. This was followed by speeches and toasts, before fire dancers and drummers performed a really impressive show for Brittney and Shawn as they watched on from their sweetheart table.

After the parental dances, the DJ/MC really got the party started with everyone hitting the illuminated dance floor to celebrate under the stars. I want to give a big shout out to Justin from JAG Affairs who did an incredible job as DJ/MC and it was a pleasure getting to work alongside him and hang out on the flight to and from Cancun.

There was so much energy and love radiating throughout this beachfront reception and I tried to capture all the action from multiple angles to document the atmosphere of the event. I also managed to grab Brittney and Shawn for a couple of romantic nighttime couple portraits in front of a fairy lit curtain that was decorating their reception space.
