Hannah has spent several summers living with her Mexico family. She is in love with the language, in love with the people, and she might have just as many people in Puerto Vallarta that love her as she does in the states. So it was a no brainer that she would have her wedding in Mexico where her heart is. The fusion of two cultures and two languages was seamless. Everyone danced, cheered, and were excited to celebrate with Hannah and Chad. The wedding was beautiful. The thunderstorms stopped just before the ceremony and cooled the air a bit so everyone could dance the night away.
Unlike most weddings that we have had the pleasure to photograph, Jeff and I (Amanda) wore several hats during Hannah and Chads wedding day. Not only were we the photographers and videographers, but we were the son (in law) and daughter of the brides family, the sister and brother (in law) of the bride, the maid of honor and the best man, as well as friends. We were flattered that Hannah refused to have anyone else capture her day, but having to work and look glamorous while sweating bullets in the humid Mexico heat is not an easy task.
Chad and Hannah were married at Karen’s Place in Bucerias Mexico, just north of Puerto Vallarta. Karen is a saint when it comes to wedding planning from a distance and exceeds your expectations for both a venue owner, and as a coordinator. During the down pour she ran over from her restaurant just to check in and assure everyone what it would be ok if things began a little late. She said it looked like the rain was passing and that everything still looked wonderful. What could have been a brides nightmare was dissolved with Karens soft and comforting presence. If you are looking for a venue in Mexico, Karen’s is a must!
