Ashley & Paul hosted the party of the summer in Ensenada, Mexico! Their wedding celebration was one I’ll never forget and I’m so honored to have been able to photograph it! AND they’ll have some great stories to share with their kids someday. More details below…. 🙂

Ashley & Paul – THANK YOU for sharing your day with me!!

Ceremony and reception venue – Hotel Coral & Marina; Hair – Beth Lund



These guys…made me WORK. I definitely had to put them in their place a few times. All in fun, of course. 😉


Looking pretty handsome, fellas!


The GORGEOUS ladies!!!

Ashley’s dress was PERFECT!


What are the chances of this happening?? In the photo below, you see the initial cut into the wedding cake (top left)…keeping in mind this is NOT an ice cream cake…or cheesecake…just a normal, perfectly normal frosting/cake combo. AND…this is a BRAND NEW knife/server set that has NEVER been used. As you can see, the knife handle BREAKS. What I don’t notice until a few seconds later is that Paul’s finger is bleeding and he has been cut …BADLY. (you can see a little blood on the handle that Ashley is holding in the bottom left). He asks for a cloth napkin and says he’s fine. So they try again and use the server to attempt the 2nd cut. THE SERVER HANDLE BREAKS TOO. At this point (as you can see on Ashley’s face…bottom right), no one can believe this is happening and Paul needs medical attention. Don’t worry, though, he was lucky enough to have a friend at the wedding who had his medical bag with him at the hotel who bandaged him up (a few times) and he was good to go. Crazy, right?!!

Crisis averted… and then they danced…

And danced and danced and danced the night away….
