Lyndsey + Ryan: a rainy day of paradise from the Royal Playa Del Carmen, Mexico from Hoo Films | Shannon Avery on Vimeo.
A girl grows up with a vision of her dream wedding, spending years anticipating what that day will look like. From the moment Lyndsey met Ryan, this vision became a reality for her. She imagined a beautiful destination wedding…a tropical, outdoor ceremony surrounded by white beaches and palm trees blowing all around. These two spent many, many months planning just that, but sometimes things don’t always go as planned.
We began at the Royal in Playa Del Carmen, in Cancun for Lyndsey and Ryan’s special day and from the moment we landed, the clouds just kept creeping in. We all stayed calm as we lost more and more hope of that dream wedding out on the white, sandy beach. As the minutes went by, the rain poured in until eventually the entire resort was covered with puddles and there was no sign of the storm slowing down. At the first spread of this news, Lyndsey was devastated. This was not the dream. On the other hand, the bigger dream was to marry the love of her life, Ryan. This is what kept Lyndsey smiling all morning regardless of the gloomy weather outside. Besides, isn’t rain good luck on your wedding day?!
The ceremony got moved into somewhat of a hallway and even still, both Ryan and Lyndsey were just glowing. The bond these two share is unshakeable. It was evident the only thing these two truly cared about was sharing their day with family and friends and most importantly, sharing their vows with one another. This was a moment nothing could shake, not even a spiraling Cancun storm. This film was quite a challenge on both the shooting and the editing. I truly hope it depicts the challenges we all faced all day and how they were overcome by the unshakeable love story that is Lyndsey and Ryan. Cheers to love being the ultimate dream wedding.
Lyndsey and Ryan, we had such an amazing few days with you and were truly inspired by your relationship. I hope this trailer portrays your dream wedding after all. Cancun will never be the same and you two have a special place in my heart. I hope mojitos on a rainy day will be in our future once again! xo
