A superb destination wedding at the Riu Palace, Los Cabos

It is a bit difficult to find the right words that would best describe the experience I have lived through while in Los Cabos this past October. After a thorough research, Reyhaneh and Will picked the stunning Riu Palace resort for their destination wedding. More used to the Mayan Riviera, this was my very first time on the Pacific coast of Mexico. After a beautiful ride from the airport, with mountains on one side and spectacular coast lines on the other, I arrived at the breathtaking resort. I was right away taken by the scenery, the fantastic views over Cabo San Lucas, the rocks at Lovers’ Beach and have experienced the first sunset at Riu while sipping cocktails on the terrace in great company.  But I still had no idea what was waiting for me there. And probably, I was not the only one. What I have lived over the next couple of days might as well be the subject of a small film. We have spent some beautifully intense moments, we bonded, my inspiration got ignited in unexpected ways. The result is a stunning collection of images and of course, a friendship that was born in the midst of this unique adventure that has nurtured our souls.

I will soon post more images from the day after when we participated in creatively trashing beautiful Reyhaneh’s dress :)

Dear amigos R + W, first of all I would like to thank you one more time for the unique time spent together and for allowing me to witness and capture the emotion around the effervescent moments you have lived while in Cabos. I want to always see your big smiles, may your life together be filled with joyous moments and new adventures. Lots of love, Manuela

Hola from Los Cabos, Mexico!

Arrived here yesterday, after an almost sleepless night…but seeing and hearing the ocean paid off for the long day of traveling and waiting in long lines at customs. Los Cabos and the surroundings are wonderful, my favorite spot so far in Mexico. The coast lines are dramatic, love seeing mountains around! Shooting an intimate wedding tomorrow followed by what I anticipate to be a fantastic ‘trash the dress’ session. I will post some great images in a while, stay tuned! Manuela

PS: My room has a great view, this is what I see when I wake up :)
