All right ladies (and gents, and other gendered folks), I just got my 1031 (!!) pro pics; these are the medium res versions.

I don't have the energy to write a super long post so I'll mostly be sharing photos -- a few of my favorites here, then chronologically.

This was a destination wedding with about 90 guests in a small town in the mountains south of Mexico City.

Some things went awry (most notably my dad being sick and throwing up during the ceremony, yikes) but for the most part it was a truly beautiful and joyful day from start to finish. I feel so lucky that so many friends and family came to celebrate with us in such a special place.

I hope you'll agree that we absolutely made the right choice of photographers! They were a fantastic team and I'm thrilled with what they were able to capture.

    Getting ready!

    At our hotel, the room where we did hair and makeup looked out over the mountains and the pool where my friends were lounging.

    He got ready in our room, which had a jacuzzi tub, woo!

    The venue! A gorgeous early 17th century hacienda now in a state of elegant disrepair, supposedly built by the son of the conquistador Cortés.

    He didn't want to do a first look, but I convinced him that we could then spend more time enjoying our party. We did a bunch of portraits together, then as our friends and family started to arrive we did casual shots with whoever was around -- I never really did a shotlist or told anyone but immediate family and bridal party to be there early. I may regret it one day, but it was really nice not to have to micromanage that.

    During the cocktail hour the photographers grabbed us and said "quick, there's an amazing beam of light in the back room, let's go!" Then next thing you know it was "the light is great up on the roof, don't worry, you can climb that ladder in your dress..."
