When Janae was planning her wedding, she knew she wanted to get married at the same resort where her twin sister Jami had been married several years prior. Nestled against the beautiful beaches of the Pacific Ocean, Cabo Azul Resort holds a special place in the hearts of Janae and her entire family. Janae and Jon envisioned their destination wedding as a special event for cherished friends and family to come celebrate, relax, and create priceless memories together…and have a few margaritas along the way, too!
The celebrations began the night before the wedding at the festive and fun Jazmin’s Restaurant where guests feasted on Mexican cuisine and enjoyed entertainment from traditional Mexican dancers. Janae wore a white linen two piece pant combo by Free People that set the tone for the classic beach bride that she was.
The next morning the Groomsmen and Bridesmaids got ready in separate suites. Janae wore her hair down and loosely curled to compliment the beachy sophistication of her gorgeous wedding gown by Grace Loves Lace. She paired the look with the perfect accessories of droplet salt water pearl earrings and pearl embellished anklets.
One of my favorite moments from the day was Janae’s first look with her father. It’s clear the two share a very special relationship and I was so honored to capture his reaction after turning around to see her in her wedding gown. It was very clear by the look on his face just how proud he is of his daughter.
The two exchanged vows overlooking the ocean in the stunning open air El Corazon chapel. As the day went on, we were able to catch one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen. Their bride and groom portraits were set against cotton candy clouds and it felt like we were in heaven.
The reception took place at Javier’s Restaurant where tables were adorned with all white decor, white coral centerpieces, and clear acrylic table number. Guests danced the night away and laughed over heartfelt speeches and amazing music. The night came to an end with a grand sparkler exit…Janae and Jon running barefoot in the sand as husband and wife.
