There’s a reason why destination weddings are so incredibly popular, and that reason is simple.  They are awesome.  I mean, an amazing once-in-a-lifetime vacation with your closest friends and family, topped off with a set of breathtaking nuptials in paradise?  It just doesn’t get any better.  Especially when those breathtaking nuptials are oceanside at the Dreams Resort & Spa and are followed up with a beautiful reception boasting sunny yellow hues and lush, orchid-filled centerpieces.  Oh, and did I mention the bridal party trash-the-dress?  See it all captured by Nicole Ashley Photography right here.

From Nicole Ashley PhotographyI recently photographed a beautiful wedding this past November in Huatulco Mexico at the Dreams Resort & Spa. Melanie and Jared’s big day was both beautiful and relaxed. We had amazing weather and the hotel resort went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of. Melanie shined as a soft, classic bride with a beautiful bridal party in charcoal satin. Jared stayed cool in light beige and was joined by his groomsmen in matching (to the girls) charcoal suits. Their day was full of happy tears, hugs, laughter and of course dancing. I photographed this beautiful couple again a couple days after, and to my delight- their entire bridal party again as well! We switched up Melanie’s hair for a more casual beach look and the entire bridal party joined in the fun! I loved being apart of this incredible wedding.
