I remember meeting Jesenia & Ciro for the first time, over 4 years ago at Jesenia’s cousin’s wedding. Though we had not yet been introduced at the time, I remember watching the entire dance floor under a trance that evening, as these two blazed across the dancefloor with captivating grace and finesse. Afterall, what else could expect from these two formally trained salsa dancers, which incidentally enough, is where these two first met? Over the years, we’ve had the honor and pleasure of photographing several of their friends and family, and we couldn’t ask for a more amazing family to be a part of. When it came time for Jesenia & Ciro to plan their destination wedding in Playa Del Carmen, I was beyond thrilled that we were invited – not only as their photographers, but also as their friends. The Paradisus Playa Del Carmen sits in the outskirts of the city center, which can only be characterized by its constant buzz of music, energy and life, punctuated with a splash of color on every wall and door. We would’ve been remiss if we hadn’t treated ourselves to a day-after session in town before we headed home. And like the city where Jesenia & Ciro would be hosting their festivities, their wedding was equally abuzz with music, energy and life. And as expected, these two dancing lovebirds, along with their closest family and friends, danced, partied and celebrated the night away – and we were just simply overwhelmingly grateful to have had the opportunity to document it all.
