Colorado to Cancun for a wedding on the beach | Justin and Stacey
When most young girls imagine what their wedding will be like one day, they rarely include the dream of "multiple swimming pools, several of which have a bar you can swim up to... oh, and you don't have to pay for the drinks". After experiencing the Okeson wedding however, this could soon change. Stacey's dress was white and wonderful just as Justin's suit was three piece and fitted, but the two of them definitely thought the whole ordeal through more than your average romantic dreamers.
As far as destination weddings go, on the coast of Riviera Maya, Mexico is as good as they get, and Justin and Stacey picked what could have been the best resort there to have it in - El Dorado Royale: the optimal place to unite your 52 closest friends and family members and celebrate a lifelong commitment.
Not only were Justin and Stacey two of the more dashing and beautiful people we have gotten the pleasure of photographing, but they were also incredibly amicable and inviting. It didn't take long for them to introduce us to the family and take us in as members of the celebration. Glasses were clinked in toasts of best wishes, and fine cigars were shared and enjoyed by the pool by Justin and his fellows. They even went so far as to especially order some wind for the ceremony to give the girls that "super model" touch, as well as some cloud cover for better photographic lighting. The charity shared by these two on the weekend of their own wedding was definitely approaching that extra mile and we were happy to be on the receiving end when it got there. With a Justin and Stacey party, it's easy to forget whether you were hired to dance or hired to photograph, because it feels like you weren't hired at all; you're another special guest invited to their special day, and we've got some beautiful photos to which to remember it.
