Averie + Keith — Hacienda Tres Rios Destination Wedding

 

Alright folks, hold on to your hats, this is a big one!

For months and months Krista and I were endlessly talking about shooting this wedding. From flights, hotels, transportation, visas, equipment… WHEW! It was a LOT of work to get prepped for this shoot but was so incredibly worth it. Averie and Keith worked tirelessly to bring this event together, along with their TWO wedding planners of course! They had a very select number of family and friends attend the wedding. If you ask me it was the PERFECT amount of people, their nearest and dearest, and even Krista and I felt like part of the crew in the end. It was an absolute BLAST!

So let us begin! After a day or two in Cancun, Krista and I made our way down to the Hacienda Tres Rios to meet the crew, hang by the pool, let our equipment get used to the crazy humidity, and ya know shoot some pictures.

First up… the welcome party! Complete with sombreros and maracas to get everyone in the spirit!

We were on a nice big patio at the edge of one of the main pools, they had lounge furniture and lights strung around, and a gracious breeze!
