Last November, we had the honour of serendipitously assisting our friends Don & Helen on a beautiful Jewish wedding at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Playa del Carmen. We were the second shooters (click over to Don & Helen’s post for their official review of photos), and managed to click (more than) a few snaps we’re quite pleased with. This wedding (beautifully designed and planned by Guerdy Designs of Miami FL) was one of the most splendid three-day celebrations we’ve yet witnessed. From an evening al-fresco dinner under candlelight and twinkle-lights to a white-party on the beach to finally an elegant ballroom wedding full of laughter, dancing and reveling, it was almost impossible to narrow down our favourite photos. A HUGE thank you to Don & Helen (please check out their incredible work here) and Stephanie & Daniel for inviting us into their lives for a brief yet unforgettable weekend.
