Lan + Troy :: A Mexican Marriage (Mayan Riviera, Mexico) – Part I of III

Edmonton wedding photographer

Sundrenched days for lovers to toil away the hours swimming amongst the fish in crystal clear blue water or lounging by the pool with a fresh margarita in hand.  Palm trees dotted along the beach providing shelter from the sun’s harsh rays and a momentary respite from the heat.  An idyllic setting for Lan & Troy, who tied the knot during an intimate ceremony on the white sand beaches of the Mayan Riviera, Mexico in front of 35 of their closest family and friends.  If any one of them had told Lan when she was in High School that one day she would be walking down the aisle marrying the man of her dreams, her ultimate “soul-mate” and it would be Troy, disbelief wouldn’t be a strong enough emotion to describe her reaction.  Back then, Lan couldn’t stand Troy and giving him the time of day, let alone her hand in marriage, was a bit too much to ask.  Thankfully, that was High School.  Now, their handwritten vows spoke volumes of how much love is shared between them.

It’s near impossible for a bride not to look like a princess on her wedding day.  For Lan, the beauty was more than the tumbling curls piled atop her head with glimmers of crystals peeking out, the make up, the tiara and the veil.

Gorgeous as all that was, it was the smile of anticipation and sheer joy as she looked out her window that made her glow.

Troy was adamant that he wouldn’t shed a tear at the wedding.  But as the music started and Lan emerged from the arbour accompanied by her parents, the reality of marrying the girl of his dreams brought tears to his eyes.
