Melissa and Humberto, Wedding Destination in Guadalajara, Mexico
29th April 2017, Hacienda La Escoba, Guadalajara
Wedding photographers always are looking for new places to shoot, new spaces, new cities, hence the reason, one of the holy grails in this industry is to go as far as possible to document a love story! “Destination wedding” (which is a wedding held in a setting away from our hometown) is one of the most wished projects any wedding photographer can dream of!
But, what about when that chosen “destination” is in fact your hometown?
This is Melissa and Humberto´s story . . . .
Guadalajara Mexico was chosen randomly by Melissa and Humberto to host their wedding. Both families flew down all the way from Mc Allen Texas to Guadalajara to be part of this celebration.
The whole wedding project was planned and organized by Rodrigo Mora, one of the top wedding planners in Mexico. Therefore, everything could not go better! It was just smooth and perfect. He chose “Casa Pedro Loza” for the civil ceremony one night before. And ¨Hacienda La Escoba” one of the most exclusive Haciendas in town to host the rest of the celebration.
The big day started at Melissa´s Hotel. Her mom and sisters were with her at the room. It was a beautiful-messy-chaotic time shooting them while getting ready for!
Humberto by his side, got dress with the help of his family. Dad, Mom and sister were there to make sure Humberto put himself together in the best spotless way.
Finally, Melissa put up an astonishing bride dress! Her sisters sorted last details out
And she was ready for the next step. We moved to Hacienda La Escoba.
The first look was a really magical moment. It could not have been more special! Humberto was the most sensible, a cascade of tears appeared in his face, such a lovely moment. And we did a proper formal photo session before the church.
The religious ceremony was in the small church in La Escoba. It was a beautiful and cosy ceremony as they brought the priest from their hometown who knew them from many years before.
The rest of the story can be told with images below . . .
