I don’t think there is a single image from this entire Mexico wedding by Christina Szczupak Photography that isn’t completely and utterly stunning. Of course, I imagine that when you have a couple as breathtakingly gorgeous as these two it’s pretty impossible to get a bad shot. Plus their simple and sweet wedding is so perfectly suited for the stunning Playa del Carmen setting. See it all in the full gallery!
From Christina of Christina Szczupak Photography… Erica and Syed wed in the beautiful location of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They did a fantastic job of creating a simple and casual, yet beautiful wedding for all of their friends and family who flew in from Michigan. They added a lot of personal, non-traditional touches, which made their blend of cultures seamless.
From the Bride… We didn’t have a wedding party, so we had the girls hand me each a flower once I walked down the aisle. My mom tied a ribbon around all the flowers last to make up my bouquet. Syed always wears a Detroit hat and wanted to at the wedding, but instead we had all of his friends surprise him by putting on their hats as he walked down the aisle. We then had a reading be one of our favorite books, Oh The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss. We didn’t want to do any formal parent dances or a couples dance, so instead we started the wedding with professional dancers to get everyone in the mood. We had guests from a variety of different backgrounds, so we focused on providing a variety of fun activities, such as a photo booth, cigar roller, music videos projected above the dance floor and professional dancers, that could appeal to everyone.
