I was so excited to be asked to photograph the wedding of my dear friends Nikki and Ricky. Not only did I know it was going to be the best time, but it was going to be a Destination Wedding in Rocky Point. ( Puerto Penasco, Mexico). One of my favorite places. It is the closest beach to Arizona that we have. It's about a 3.5 hour drive from Phoenix so we visit often to say the least.
The venue was a beautiful beach house in Los Conchas. It was perfect for hosting such a big event. Nikki did such an amazing job crafting her own wedding decorations and paying such close attention to the smallest of details.
It being the 1st of September, everyone was worried about the heat, luckily a beautiful ocean breeze was a blowing...hard... all day. The wind, although not the best for good hair, made it so nice to be outside and on the beach.
The bridal party got ready in the house next door and the Groomsmen, and... women, had the main house to get ready in. I had a blast photographing both parties. These beautiful beach houses have photo ops around every corner. It's like a photographer's playground.
The ceremony started right as the sun was setting and although pretty windy, was so beautiful. Everyone looked stunning and it was full of love and laughter.
The sunset photo session with just the Bride and Groom was epic. It was the first time these two got to see each other all day, and... the first moments of them being alone (besides me of course) as husband and wife. After all the work and planning, and nerves, it is such a sweet relief to just have these gorgeous moments in the setting sun.
After that, the party started and well.... it was a party! Dancing, speeches, Food, Drinks and the photo booth is always the best entertainment. See all the PHOTOBOOTH PICS HERE
Congratulations Ricky and Nikki Carter on your beautiful wedding, finding your forever love, and pulling off one hell of a good time for everyone. I'm so happy for you two and thank you so much for letting me capture one of the best times of your lives. It was.... EPIC!
