Stacy & Derick reside in Colorado but decided to tie the knot in Magnificent Mexico. Stacy is originally from Wisconsin and came across De La Teja Studio many years ago…and we were honored they remembered us after all these years. Stacy looked striking in her designer beach gown complete with pink gold jewelry to match the sunsets of the Mayan Riviera. Many of our destination weddings consist of just the bride & groom since most couples are not into the show of a full traditional wedding. This couple were very much in love and wanted to keep things private and simple. Stacy said her favorite part was wandering the desolate beach at sunset while we watched a thunder storm roll by ~ she felt like a movie star! Derick was the perfect groom and answered to Stacy’s every wish! After the extraordinary beach photo session we wandered into town to capture the soft glow of candles and street lights that make Playa Del Carmen so special! Stacy & Derick were blown away with these spectacular images both on and off the beach. We wrapped up the evening with the newlyweds to a famous seafood restaurant on the ocean complete with mango margaritas and a few tequilas! The next day we road tripped down the Yucatan Peninsula to a nearby cenote/quarry. The picturesque caverns were calling their names after a hot day of walking thru the jungle, they couldn’t wait to dive in the turquoise mayan pools! Great job and kudos to you both for your willingness to venture off the resort for these breathtaking and once in a lifetime images! Salud to Stacy & Derick!
