Destination Wedding: Grand Velas Resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico – Josh Wong Photography

Destination Wedding: Grand Velas Resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico – Josh Wong Photography

Jade & Peter

Location: Grand Velas Resort & Spa, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Jade and Peter’s whirlwind three day destination wedding at the Grand Velas Resort and Spa in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico in the Maya Riviera was nothing short of spectacular. Their wedding incorporated the dreamy beach wedding that most can only dream about. Friends and family started arriving for their wedding on Thursday and Friday to celebrate with Jade and Peter. On Friday, they had their rehearsal on the beach and later had their rehearsal/welcome dinner at Luca, an Italian restaurant at the Grand Velas.

The Grand Velas is a AAA 5 Diamond luxury all-inclusive resort which is a stunning property with great food, great service, and beautiful accommodations. This was the first time I stayed at an all-inclusive resort and I have mixed feelings about. For the most part though, the experience is quite amazing. Getting pampered all day long never gets old.

My team and I flew into Cancun, Mexico on Thursday evening to get situated with the environment and to scout out possible photo shoot locations in and around the resort. Because the resort is all-inclusive, security is actually ridiculously tight. Getting in and out of the resort required you to check in and out with the resort attendants each time. The property is gated and they will not let you enter until they locate your host.

On the day of the wedding, Jade started with a trip to the Spa to get ready with her bridesmaids. She spent most of the time there until it was time for the wedding. Because it was a beach wedding, Jade and her bridesmaids went barefoot and had gorgeous designer foot jewerly. Peter on the other hand also spent some time with his groomsmen at the spa before heading back to his room to get ready. They did a spa package that included various types of cold and hot baths and a mud bath. The wedding took place on a private beach sectioned off by the Grand Velas. The beach offered fine white sands with and a breathtaking backdrop for the guests. After the ceremony, all the guests headed back towards the resort to party the night away with their family and friends.

For day three, we scheduled a day after/trash the dress photo session. The plan was to head into Tulum, Mexico to try to get some images with the Mayan ruins. Unfortunately, we had a late start, which is understandable since everyone was up late partying for most of the previous night. We ended up hitting the beach and wandered into the town area where we happened upon this an amazing boutique hotel cafe where we were able to capture some truly amazing shots. Here are a few of my favorites from the 3 day destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Enjoy!

The Bridges Golf Club Wedding – San Ramon, CA – Josh Wong Photography – Adriana and Eric

The Bridges Golf Club Wedding – San Ramon, CA – Josh Wong Photography – Adriana and Eric
April 26, 2014

The San Francisco Bay Area will always have a special place in my heart. After all, it’s where I grew up. When Adriana and Eric approached me to see if I would like to fly back to the West Coast and photograph their wedding, my answer was a definite yes.

Adriana and Eric started their day out at the Courtyard by Marriott in San Ramon, California. The bride and her bridesmaids got ready in Suite 402. While the girls were getting all dolled up, the boys were hanging out and partying in Suite 202. Their celebration was complete with lots of booze, pizza, and hot wings. There were even a few overturned tables at the end but that is a story for another day…. The couple had prepared wedding gifts for each other and heartfelt letters/cards. They opened these gifts separately which was captured both on film and video.

When everyone was finally ready, they headed to the Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon. It was at this beautiful venue with the rolling hills and azure blue skies where the couple had their dream wedding out on the main lawn of the country club. No detail was forgotten. The bride and groom even provided white sunglasses for the ceremony. To make this day even more special, the bride’s brother officiated the ceremony. After the ceremony,  we did some really fun and epic bridal party photos while the guests enjoyed the cocktail hour. Then we all headed into the banquet hall and the happy couple partied the night away. The couple had an awesome photo booth, lots of dancing, and even sliders and mini pizzas at the end of the night. What a gorgeous day it was in San Ramon. Although the forecast predicted the slightest chance of rain, fortunately it never materialized. Congratulations Adriana and Eric! Here are a few of my favorite moments of the day!

Enjoy!
