Jessica & Nathan’s Perfect Wedding at Hyatt Regency Rio Grande

I hadn't done wedding photography at the Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve in Rio Grande ever since it was called the Gran Melia. I was so happy to re-discover this beautiful wedding venue with the kindest of souls: Jessica and Nathan. We had to wait a little longer than intended for this one, as COVID meant we needed to choose two or three dates before one of them stuck. But it was worth it!

Bride & Groom Getting Ready Hyatt Regency In Rio Grande

One thing about the Hyatt Regency in Río Grande: it's gigantic! So if you're planning (or photographing) a wedding there, you need a solid timeline that allows for some movement between different suites. So we started at Jessica's bridal villa and photographed her and her bridesmaids.

Right before moving to Nathan's suite, we had a first look with Jessica's father. It was so emotional for him and their family to finally see her as a bride. We were so ready for this!

At Nathan's suite, he and his groomsmen were ready to go. Unfortunately, their suite was a bit dark, so we did most of their groom & groomsmen shoot outdoors, and then we took Nathan's to Jessica's villa for their first look. 

BTW, if you're looking for cool groom, groomsmen, and best men gifts, check out my friends at Groomsday.

Rainy Wedding Day... No Biggie! 

As the ceremony was about to start, a black cloud stopped right over the ceremony setup. We all walked back for cover, waited about 15 minutes, and then tried again. This time, the ceremony went out without a hitch. It was beautiful, romantic, and so emotional. Also, very windy! 

But let's talk about that party! They put on a show for everyone, live entertainment, after-party food stations, and a coffee booth. Every single soul in that ballroom felt so appreciative and grateful for experiencing their wedding day, and so was I. 



Jessica's Review

The Best there is!

I will forever ever be grateful to Camille for capturing our special day and being an amazing photographer. We met way back in 2019 when things were still normal and throughout the craziness and unpredictability of constantly changing dates because of Covid-19 she has been so generous, flexible, attentive and understanding.

She captured the beauty, emotion and dreaminess of our day with absolute perfection. The energy she brings to the room is playful, charming, friendly and dare I say relaxing. She stayed through it all, captured precious as well as fun little fumbles and we will cherish these photos forever.

Gracias Camille por tanto, un abrazo fuerte!
Con mucho carino,

Jessi y Nate

Jessica's Mom Review

Excelente servicio y las fotos hermosas!

Comenzamos a trabajar antes de la pandemia ya que era una boda para mayo 2020. Cuando todo cerró siempre fue flexible y nos apoyó en el proceso de buscar fechas nuevas. Su servicio y cortesía excelente. El día de la boda fue puntual y capturó tanto bellos detalles que al ver el producto final volvimos a revivir el día. Gracias mil por todo! Bendiciones.
