Kate’s work speaks for itself, but we also love that her team offers a white glove approach to weddings, always bringing a second shooter, jumping in to lend an expert hand–even if that means stepping out from behind the camera. Kate and her team absolutely adore shooting couples that are taking a unique approach to their wedding, which, let’s be honest, is exactly GLW readers!

Puerto Vallarta has quickly moved to the top of our list of “Must Visit Places.” We love that the locale combines the romance of tropical beaches with the excitement and flare of a uniquely cultural experience! Today, we are excited to share with you “Puerto Vallarta, Mexico’s Romantic Destination Sweepstakes.” Because this beautiful city is the perfect setting in which to celebrate a unique and unforgettable wedding, honeymoon or anniversary, the sweepstakes will give to one lucky couple a stay at Puerto Vallarta’s Hilton or Velas Vallarta with a Rhythms of the Night or Luxury Sunset Sailing activity with Vallarta Adventure and a dolphin experience with Dolphin Discovery. If you love a good adventure, then this is absolutely the sweepstakes for you.

Wedding Blog Puerto Vallarta Wedding Blog Puerto Vallarta

One of the things we love about Puerto Vallarta is its proximity to most major US cities. While there for your wedding, the location is also perfect for memorable bachelor and bachelorette parties! With excursions like golf, water sports, or even a boat trip to Yelapa where you can hike to waterfalls through the jungle, fish and swim in the calm waters, and visit the local village. There is even a local yoga studio that take place in a renovated home. You can even enjoy yoga on a rooftop studio overlooking the city, while you relax and prep for the big day! Of course, there are a ton of ways to pamper yourself too, with a variety of massages and spa treatments.  Wedding Blog Puerto Vallarta Wedding Blog Puerto Vallarta Wedding Blog Puerto Vallarta

The best part about choosing a destination wedding and honeymoon is the incredible staff that is behind it all! They’ll plan all of this for you and make the entire process actually FEEL like a vacation! Wedding Blog Puerto Vallarta

She laid them upon her bosom,
Under a cloud of her hair,
And her red lips sang them a love-song
Till stars grew out of the air.

She opened her door and her window,
And the heart and the soul came through,
To her right hand came the red one,
To her left hand came the blue.

They set up a noise like crickets,
A chattering wise and sweet,
And her hair was a folded flower
And the quiet of love in her feet.

– William Butler Yeats, “Cap and Bells”

Liz and Wayne’s engagement session was an excursion of sorts, as the couple went to their favorite spots throughout Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand. Photographer Jen Huang captured the pair’s love of travel and adventure as they traipsed through the countryside! Can we just say, New Zealand is so dang beautiful! Wedding Blog Liz and Wayne in Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand Wedding Blog Liz and Wayne in Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand Wedding Blog Liz and Wayne in Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand Wedding Blog Liz and Wayne in Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand Wedding Blog Liz and Wayne in Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand

How did you meet?

Wayne and I met through mutual friends. I found him cute and witty, making remarks that were odd, perceptive and funny at the same time. I found out that he had recently moved to Singapore and had a job that required him to work US based hours. Luckily for me, my schedule consisted mostly of night shifts at the hospital that I had dreaded up until then. We were soon sharing our stories nightly into the wee hours of the morning. By the time he surprised me by asking me out to a movie several months later, he knew my preferences and even favorite actors.

How did Wayne propose?

Wayne and I were engaged on the fourth night of our trip to the Maldives. He had planned an elaborate private beach dinner overlooking the sunset. Despite how obvious this may have appeared, I didn’t suspect anything because this was the type of over-the-top hoax Wayne indulged in occasionally. The fancy dinner came and went, and I didn’t notice much other than him being somewhat more fidgety than usual. Must have been the pre-snorkel caffeine drink, I thought. On the way back to the water villa, Wayne took my hand and insisted on taking a detour, having allegedly spotted “giant migrating manta rays.” Somewhat exhausted, I followed and headed towards a secluded beach area where an incredible wedding proposal formed by candles surrounded by tropical plants awaited me. Completely shocked, I turned and looked at Wayne, who had his left knee in the sand. He later told me he thought he had lost the ring during dinner.
