When I close my eyes, I can still hear the ocean waves, see the pelicans fly overhead, and feel the warmth on my skin. Ahhh, Mexico… the perfect spot for a destination wedding, and that’s exactly where Jena and Ashkan chose to be married, at Grand Palladium Resort.
The day of the wedding opened up with a beautiful sunrise. I met up with Ash in the morning for his haircut, and that man was beaming! I can honestly say that I have never seen any guy being that happy, EVER! Ash opened the ring box, and talked about how his dad hand wove his wedding band; how he woke up at 4am and laid there grinning at the ceiling, thinking about the gorgeous girl he was about to marry. “Did you see Ashkan? How is he?” were the first words Jena said when I joined the girls later that morning. Her eyes sparkled with excitement. These two seriously melt me. They are ridiculously adorable together, and their personalized vows made me tear up, which, being a professional, I quickly blamed on the bright sunlight 0_o.
Their day was just perfect, filled with family and friends, laughter, good food, amazing music, hilarious speeches, and love, lots and lots of love. Jena and Ash, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your wedding day, and making me feel like part of the family. You’re just awesome!
P.s. part II with photos from the ‘day after’ is coming up shortly.
They handmade all the invitation boxes!
I LOVE these cake topper!
Hilarious moment, when Barcelonians started to cheer and sing on the background.
