Susan Pacek Photography » Mexico destination wedding photography

I love photographing beach weddings and although most of them take place in Mexico, this wonderful destination wedding took me to St. Petersburg, Florida. This wedding was extra special because the bride is my cousin! Kaitlyn and Zach decided to have their destination wedding at the Grand Plaza Hotel on St. Pete Beach. What a wonderful venue for a wedding! They were joined by family and many, many friends to celebrate this couple’s incredible love for each other. The ceremony was so sweet and the reception was an absolute blast!

I wish you all the happiness in the world cuz and I’m super excited that Zach is now part of our family! Much love to you both! xoxo

A few days before Ali and Ricky tied the knot at Zama Beach Club, I met up with them for their engagement photos on Isla Mujeres. We started at Punta Sur then went to a secret beach where we were the only ones around! Instead of dressing up, they decided to wear their bathing suits which I thought was so much fun! It was a relaxed and fun experience. Enjoy these highlights from their Isla Mujeres engagement photography session!

Check back soon for highlights from their destination wedding at Zama Beach Club!

What an incredible couple! Individually, both Sam and James are amazing people with kind hearts. Together though, they’re love and sweetness are inspiring!

I first joined Sam and her bridesmaids for getting ready photos at Ixchel Beach Hotel on Playa Norte. Sam’s girls were just as wonderful as she is. After she put on her wedding dress, she sat her mom down and gave her a wonderful gift – a handkerchief embroidered with a very sweet note. It was such a tender and touching moment!

Sam and James then had a very special ‘first look’. They both wrote notes to each other that they read together. Again, an incredible moment!

Sam also wanted a special moment with her dad before the ceremony. As with her mom, she gave her father a handkerchief embroidered with a sweet note. It was so sweet that it brought tears to my eyes!

The choose to have their destination wedding at the best wedding venue on Isla Mujeres – Zama Beach Club! Zama offers a private beach, incredible cuisine and amazing sunsets. Their ceremony was as sweet and special as this couple! After the ceremony, they made there way to the dock with all their guests for a group photo.

Sam and James’ wedding reception was incredible! From oh so sweet and loving toasts, to tender first dances to a fun dancing floor! It was a special wedding day for sure and one I will never forget!
