These two are college sweethearts.
They met at a bar at the University of Illinois and have been together for six and a half years.
Phil popped the question on a hike at Starved Rock.
It ended up happening in the parking lot because she never let him get the chance to ask.
Phil is an entrepreneur.
He owns a bar and resturant, owns a CBD company, and owns and rents property.
Shannon is an ER nurse.
They enjoy spending time with their friends, skiing, and enjoying time on lake Michigan.
The wedding was at one of our favorite hotels, Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya.
We love this hotel, the nature and the colonial style arcgetecture make a unique atmosphere.
There are a lot of spots to take amazing pictures!
We stayed with Shannon & Phil’s family and friends for 3 days at the hotel.
On the first day, we had a beautiful session with the family of the bride at the hotel’s gardens.
At night, we were at the welcome cocktail event at Don Miguel Bar.
We enjoyed delicious martinis and had the opportunity to shoot some pictures and meet all the treasured guests of this destination wedding.
By the wedding day, we felt like part of the party!
The wedding ceremony was beautiful, super emotional, and took place at the beach by the Caribbean Sea.
There was perfect weather thanks to the gentle breeze and the gorgeous sunset hour.
After the wedding ceremony, we had time to enjoy a couple’s session and when the night fell, we found a wonderful place for dinner and the party!
It’s was a large colonial patio surrounded by gardens with water fountains and delicate lighting!
Thanks to the Valentin, Imperial Wedding Planner Fabiola, for the support. It was a pleasure to work with you.
Thank you Shannon and Phillip for choosing us and trusting in our art.
It was a wonderful experience and you have a wonderful group of family and friends!
We wish you eternal and infinite love!
