Generations Riviera Maya Wedding || Destination Wedding Photographer || Chana + Marquise

We have been looking forward to Chana and Marquise’s Generations Riviera Maya wedding for a long time! We all live in Philadelphia, but that didn’t stop these two love birds from having a fabulous beach wedding in winter. We’re so happy they chose us to be their destination wedding photographer and videographer. Their wedding in Riviera Maya turned out so amazing (totally not surprised!). And after their wedding, we continued traveling to Nicaragua. You can follow our blog posts from that trip on our travel blog, with more posts coming soon. AND we would love to wish Marquise a very Happy Birthday today! What a wonderful way to start off your next year, as a married man to the love of your life.

What a super fun couple! And there’s just something so special about being able to get away to paradise to celebrate your wedding with your loved ones. The all inclusive resort at Generations Riviera Maya is so incredibly beautiful!! We would stay there forever if we could bring all of our fur babies with us.

Aside from the beauty of the location of this wedding, there were so may personalized details. I mean her dress, WOW. And they brought all of the decorations for the reception with them themselves. That is a huge undertaking for a destination wedding. Some serious planning went into that and we got some amazing photos of the details of course. It was very important to them that their wedding reflect their style (And we love that!). They didn’t want a beach theme wedding which might have happened if they left it all up to the venue (hey, they are on the beach after all). Their cake was beach themed but we love that and it was just a small touch to remind you were you are. And they brought in all of their own vendors for their wedding. Nothing was left to chance, and it definitely shows!

A Spectacular Wedding

Their ceremony was held on the covered pier of the resort. This was so nice because it was hot and this kept everyone out of the direct sun. Ceremonies on the beach can be tough to photograph and there just isn’t much you can do about harsh sun and shadows. So having everything covered made it much better for everyone. The flower girls and ring bearer did such a good job too. You just have to love cute kids at weddings. And the cocktail hour was even complete with a donkey! That was a fun surprise that I don’t think their guests were expecting. Everywhere we turned, we had a beautiful backdrop for photos. And you know we had the perfect sunset too.

Their reception went off without a hitch, in Generations Beachfront Palapa Ganesha set up. As I mentioned, all their details were brought from home and well thought out. Gold and glitter everywhere! We can’t forget about Marquise’s amazing unique tux. And Chana had a couple outfit changes: one in a bride shirt and her girls had bridesmaids shirts they wore during a choreographed dance for Marquise. Then she changed into her FAB jumpsuit so she was able to really get down on the dance floor. This was one of the most wild and fun receptions we’ve captured. Thank you Chana and Marquise for showing us a good time! And the whole day it was like capturing friends, not clients. And that’s the way it should be!
