Wedding at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya Mexico – Krimzon and Melissa

A destination wedding at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico? Yes, please! Krim and Melissa’s wedding was just phenomenal!

Begin with a fantastic and beautiful couple, add in an exotic location, and top it off with perfect weather (warm sunshine with with a cool breeze) and you’ve got an idea of how great this day was!

Melissa and Krim had begun to plan a traditional wedding but soon became bogged down with planning and preparation and decided to scratch that plan and keep things simpler with a destination wedding in a gorgeous location. We were more than happy to accompany them to Mexico, as it had been a few years since our last destination weddings in Stockholm, Sweden and Jackson Hole, Wyoming!

The entire day, from getting ready at the Salon, to group photos, to the ceremony, to the reception and then fireworks took place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico! We wanted to make sure our couple had great shots of their beautiful venue, so we spent some time the day after the wedding getting some location and detail shots for them, shown below. Enjoy a few of our favorite moments from Krim and Melissa’s wedding day!

Krim and Melissa chose to have a first look, and we are so glad they did! Not only were we able to capture some really sweet reactions between them, but it freed us up to take bride and groom photos before the ceremony and keep the day moving along smoothly, and get the bride and groom to their reception as quickly as possible to celebrate with their friends and family!
