Courtney and Jake. When I say their names together a big smile comes to my face. And anyone who know’s them – knows exactly what I mean. Courtney + Jake… LIVE life to the fullest. They work REALLY hard (they met on the first day of law school for Pete’s sake!), they LIVE hard and they PLAY hard. So when I found out that Courtney and Jake were planning to get married in San Pancho, MEXICO – I was thrilled but not surprised. I knew their wedding would be an adventure and one you don’t want to miss – whether it be on top of a ski mountain or in a tropical paradise!
I have had the honor of documenting three of Courtney’s friends’ weddings (Coulter & Peter, Elise & Ben, Katie & Chris), so we have walked through multiple wedding days together and throughout the years Courtney has become a sweet friend. She was the bridesmaid that, even with the craze of the day, kept asking if I wanted anything, offering me water, a snack, anything. Courtney is loyal. She cares for those she loves and I felt just a glimpse of that. She truly is a beautiful person. And Jake is one of the most kind-hearted men I have ever met. So when the time came when Courtney got engaged and asked if I would be a part of their day – I already knew my answer. YES!!
And let me tell you… it was a celebration like no other!! So on a gorgeous day in San Pancho, Mexico, Courtney & Jake invited their close friends and family to celebrate at their destination wedding at Hacienda San Pancho and take part in a day of promises and love. The whole wedding weekend was relaxed, joyful, and one heck of a party! Throughout this year I have loved getting to know Courtney and Jake as a couple – they truly are the perfect match!
Jake and Courtney, thank you so much for inviting me to share in such a beautiful and intimate celebration. Your family and friends welcomed me as one of their own and I could not have been happier to capture such an incredible weekend! Congrats you two!! Felicitations!!
Courtney + Jake opted to see each before the ceremony for a First Look and it was (hand downs) my favorite moment of the day!
Courtney & Jake made time in their day to go into town so we could capture the energy and life that this little town has to offer! I LOVE all these bright colors!
The wedding team at the Hacienda San Pancho did a fabulous job!
Being the avid skiers they are – it could not have been more perfect than to have an alter made of skis!
I LOVE THIS PHOTO! Here is a photo with me and my THREE KLP Couples!! So fun to reconnect with them!!
