I was really excited when Jen contacted me about photographing their wedding, since it would be my first wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Finally April 20 rolled around, and I was even more thrilled, Puerto Vallarta is amazing, Playa Fiesta is a very high spirited venue devoted exclusively to destination weddings and Mike and Jen are as beautiful, and laid back a couple as a photographer could hope for. Here are just a few images from the day….

Jen on her balcony at Playa Fiesta, since the resort is built into the hillside the views are spectacular…and Jen is looking pretty spectacular too!
I just loved this photograph of Jen and her mom before the ceremony.
The wedding was held on a sun deck overlooking the ocean.
The ceremony was very moving and over very quickly, I was so happy to be able to be able to captue the panoramic view as well as the close ups.
Each guest had a set of maracas to celebrate the marriage. ¡qué buena idea!

Jen and her girls…
Playa Fiesta is so pretty at night, the dance floor is actually a bridge.
Yes, there was a burro at the reception! I have photographed a lot of weddings in Mexico, but that was a first for me.
