Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure. Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour yourself another cup. Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to.

I could not be more excited to share these photos from Jordin and Zack’s EPIIICCC destination wedding day in one of my favorite places EVVVAAA, Cabo San Lucas!! I’ve known Jordin practically my entire life, and her family has been like a second one to me for as long as I can remember. I was SUPER PUMPED to be there alongside her friends and family as she married the love of her life in paradise. Surrounded by the tallest palm trees and the ocean breeze at Riu Palace, Zack and Jordin shared the CUTEST, romantic oceanside ceremony with their family and friends. Their wedding day was filled with endless laughter, heartfelt emotions and dancing alongside these two love birds to TAYLOR FREAKING SWIFT!!
