Christy + Harald | Playa Del Carmen Wedding Photographer | Azul Fives, Mexico | Destination Wedding Photographer

It was quite the trip from Denver to the Azul Fives Resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I actually took my 2 month old on this little wedding adventure with the help of an old friend who happened to be 6 months pregnant at the time. We probably looked so ridiculous trying to get through the airport with our plethora of baby and camera equipment. Once we were there, the true adventure began as we explored the resort amenities including the infinity pool. The best part though was having the honor of capturing Christy & Harald's wedding. 

Christy & Harald are hilarious together, and I can absolutely see why they are a couple. Christy is super feisty, and Harald is as laid back as they come. They're both lawyers in Colorado, so you can just imagine the discussions they must have. But, believe me, they are probably the coolest lawyers I know, and anyone would be lucky to be in their social circle because they are all about the fun. The wedding day was absolutely beautiful. The sky and the water were both a vibrant blue, and the rooftop ceremony/reception site had views to die for and a nice ocean breeze. We even had a parasailer fly by during the ceremony; the tell tale sign of a destination wedding, haha. The day was truly a celebration of their union and overall a big party; my favorite kind of wedding! Thank you Christy & Harald for letting me photograph your big day. Those memories will last a lifetime (especially the ones from the after hours).
