If you have one good friend in life, you’re considered to be lucky. This couple isn’t just lucky in love, but they are blessed to have had their four best friends with them to celebrate their simple, sweet and romantic wedding day. You can literally feel the sentiment in these captured moments by Amanda Mae Images. I only wish that I could be a fly on the wall at the Posada Margherita reception to share in laughter, love and building more memories to come. To see more of the happiness, click here. 

 

From Amanda Mae ImagesWith the sun sinking down to dip its rays in the turquoise waters off the beaches of Tulum, Mexico, Geena and Steve said their vows surrounded by their four closest friends and a few passersby on vacation. Geena, a free spirit who loves to laugh, kept her wedding simple, choosing the natural beauty of the location as her cathedral. The morning was spent swimming and sunbathing with a quick trip into town to find Geena’s bouquet from a local open air market. Her dress was a simple, flowing gown, which was repeatedly drenched as she played in the water. And her attendants’ gifts were earrings — hand-made by the bride. Steve and his two closest buddies waited at the beach restaurant over margaritas as Geena and her two bridesmaids got ready. With tears in his eyes, Steve watched Geena emerge from a bungalow and walk down the “isle” to the music of the waves. The ceremony was short but meaningful as each of the wedding party read their thoughts and blessings to the couple. The reception was held at Posada Margherita, a treasure of a restaurant filled with hand-carved tables, local artwork and the view of the moon rising over the beach. Homemade pasta, Italian wine and the catch of the day were served, and the celebration concluded with a moonlit walk to the beach-side bungalows.
