Sandos Finesterra Wedding
When I met Lyn and Richard here in Seattle and they asked if I wanted to photograph their wedding in Cabo San Lucas at the Sandos Finesterra Resort I was so excited. It took all of my strength not to jump out of my chair and act like Tom Cruise on Oprah’s couch. Fast forward over a year from that date I found myself last weekend soaking up the sun(burn) and sights with the sweetest, most lovely couple a photographer could ask for.
Lyn and Richard are a great pair. I loved watching Lyn’s face light up every time she looked at him. I loved hearing his laugh as they shared jokes. This is a couple that has a bright future. I especially love that they planned a destination wedding that allowed for lots of time poolside and seaside. Sandos Finesterra is located on the Pacific side of the Baja which means large crashing waves and soft sandy beaches. Just around the corner from this paradise is the marina. There you can find all kinds of water activities including sailing, snorkeling, etc. My husband, Caleb, and I came into town two nights before the wedding to check out the locations, create a shoot plan, and enjoy the all-inclusive resort. We took a sailing trip to “the arch” as everyone calls it at lands end. I snapped a couple photos at sunset for Lyn and Richard since I figured they’d want some.
Perfect Ceremony and Reception
The ceremony happened on the beach and was really beautiful. Together Lyn and Richard did a sand ceremony. Their pieces of glass will be used to create a one of a kind glass sculpture, an eloquent metaphor for their relationship. After the ceremony and some photos with the guests and family, we went to the beach for sunset photos. Nothing beats a sunset on the beach at a Sandos Finesterra Wedding! I felt like the light show went on for two hours and gave us brilliant colors all evening long.
Finally, a tequila toast, cutting of the cake and an evening of laughs with loved ones rounded out this magical celebration. Thank you so much to Lyn and Richard for sharing their love with all of us. May your union be a blessed one filled with spectacular sunsets on the beach.
