The 2016 wedding season was by far the busiest year i've ever had. With over 80 weddings, including 4 far away destinations I was running on Redbull fumes and hope by the end. From local overnights to Leavenworth, Chelan and The San Juan Islands to logging 40k flight miles on Alaska Airlines to reach brides in Hawaii, Boston and Phoenix I was everywhere and my Zuca looks like a beat up old chevy!
Which brings me to La Gran Final, the wedding of Jessica and Ross (not Rachael and Ross) aka my end game wedding of the season in Sayulita Nayarit Mexico. I met Jessica when she booked me for a commercial shoot and we quickly got to talking about her wedding... AND when a bride says to you "I am getting married in Sayulita Mexico this fall, I bought a red Vera Wang dress and its over Dia De Los Muertos can you go?" Hello, why YES I can! and there was a heavy emphasis that this was going to be one big party, how could I not? and then she books one of my favorite Seattle photographers to shoot the adventure, Mandee Rae
Before I go on, I always say planning a wedding is like writing, financing, directing, producing and starring in your own Broadway musical..now planning a destination wedding is like taking that show on tour. My small roll takes a lot of planning and some luck, especially when your'e trying to guess how humid is 90% really? how much frizz in the hair and shine on the face are we talking?
Fast forward to 7am Sunday October 30th, it was one of those typical dark cold rainy Seattle mornings but who cares we were off to the land of tacos and tequila!
