Alyssa told me last year that her wedding resort had to move their wedding one week later. And I was HEARTBROKEN. I had another wedding booked already on their new date! And the fact that I adore her and Ralf SO DANG MUCH crushed me. Determined to make her dreams come true, I assured her that I’d find her an amazing associate photographer. 

Luckily, my lovely friend Mackenzie came to the rescue! I stayed in communication with Alyssa & Ralf + followed up afterward with editing. I’m so grateful to have had Mackenzie step in and photograph their big day. And I’m even more excited at how amazing their gallery turned out – I can’t wait to someday get to have a new adventure together with these two!

They tied the knot at a stunning resort in Cancún, the Majestic Resort. In case you’re feelin’ like I am and are drooooling over their wedding photos + considering Cancún for your own wedding now, let’s learn a little about the resort itself + what it offers!
