In February, we flew to Mexico to celebrate our friends, Ron and Shawna’s, wedding. We spent four nights in town together, getting to know the other guests, eating delicious food, and cruising around town. The ceremony was beautiful, laid back, and down-to-earth, with about 30 friends and family present. We had a fantastic time, and couldn’t be happier for Ron and Shawna.
We met Ron back in 2002 when we were planning our own wedding and vetting photographers. When we chose him, we had no idea it would be the start of a long friendship. The following summer, Jonathan second-shot with him at weddings to build a portfolio to start our own wedding photography business. Not too long after that, Ron started BlackRapid, an innovative camera strap company, and Jonathan has helped with the IT side of things over the years.
Where we all stayed. The building at the top (also the tallest point in Sayulita) is where the ceremony was. We stayed down below in the yellow building.

Up at Ron and Shawna’s villa. It was so neat! There was lots of ornate, antique furniture, and eye-catching details. Here’s Jonathan on a swing in the living room. There was also a treehouse suite up at the very top.
During college I worked at The Olive Garden. My old manager owns this restaurant now, so we paid him a visit.
