Intimate Beach Wedding in a hidden gem: Chacala, Nayarit.

Besides getting to know this amazing wedding venue in a secluded but spectacular area, Caradee + Patrick’s wedding pumped up my heart so hard that I still get a smile on my face remembering it. Despite the more than one hour drive from Puerto Vallarta, everything, from start to finish was so rewarding.

Along with my good friends and vendors Macdai from MacEvent and Marcella Castellanos  -the ceremony officiant- we were welcome by Nidia and the caring staff of Villa Palapas in the small town of Chacala. The place, the weather, and , above all, the good vibe these families and friends had was perfect. And everything kept the very same direction the rest of the day.

Finally, it could be added that another big takeaway I’ve got from this time was a reminder about why I do this. Whilst the bride was getting ready, her mom, a super nice lady ( who later suffered the blast of her firs tequila shot ) asked me: ” what do you like the most of your job? ” My immediate response was: ” all the love that’s around during a wedding day”.

I must say this year has turned into a very positive one since the very begining, in several ways: my family is doing great, I am enjoying so much  the rewarding yet difficult role of being a dad, and I am getting to know such nice people whilst doing what I love.

Late November, I received an information inquiry from a gentleman from Canada – funny thing as my website hasn´t been translated to English already- asking  me to make some pictures of his wife and him as they decided to renew their wedding vows in Nuevo Vallarta during their winter family vacations. After some e mails, things went through the right way and they decided to make me part of that special time for their family.

On January 13th we met at Paradise Village Resort for a very intimate ceremony lead by this amazing minister-dj-wedding planner-first time mom-bride to be, called Staci Nichols , and  finally I met this lovely  family . Everything was so relaxed yet filled with beautiful details ( coordinated by Staci, too) that positive energy flowed all over the place. It was very emmotional as they picked that particular day : 13-1-13 to celebrate their 13th anniversary .

I heard this quote recently : ” when things are done with passion, good things will follow” and every day is clearer for me.

Be happy!
