Ashley and Josh’s Barceló Maya Beach Wedding Photography at Mexico

Our first couple from Fargo, North Dakota, Ashley and Josh, had their Mexico wedding in front of their closest friends and family on a stunning March day at the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort. And I have to say that I am a little fan of the movie Fargo. I love the ridiculousness of what happens in the movie and yes, their accents are equally intriguing. Apparently, not realistic, but intriguing.

I wasn’t disappointed, Fargo-esque drama soon unfolded wedding style… I arrived in the guys room to find that Josh had just unpacked his shirt from his suitcase and his hairspray had exploded over it during the flight. It was unwearable. Hi mother quickly washed it in the sink and I called the wedding planner with my cell phone the to come and put in the dryer and get it ironed in the hour before the ceremony. And in amazing fashion, the wedding was a perfect 5 minutes late and Josh wore a perfectly clean and ironed shirt to his ceremony.

Ashley wore an empire line strapless dress, with a trumpet skirt, and accessorized it with delicate long earring and white flowers in her simple elegant up-do. I am sure you will agree, there is something incredibly classical and beautiful about the simple lines her dress and hair make that really make it possible to see her face and emotions in all these images. The colours for their Mexico wedding ranged from the softest of pale peaches in the roses of the bouquet, to peach bridesmaid dresses to a vibrant coral used in the decor, and this choosing several tones from the same colour group has worked brilliantly to give the whole wedding “look” continuity.

Although it was a beautiful day, with the incredible sea we are blessed with here in the background, and a clear sky, in true Caribbean fashion a few drops of rain “blessed” the couple as they walked back down the aisle together. Although we all looked up, there was not a cloud in the sky that the rain could have been coming from…. another one of those Mayan Riviera mysteries….
