I couldn’t wait for the day when I can post many many photos from Kaytlin and Brendon’s amazing wedding in Puerto Vallarta! And this day is today! YEAH! I love asking my couples for their love stories and listen and read how the relationship started and grew strong.
How did you guys meet?
Brendon and I worked together at an agency for adults with developmental disabilities. I confused him for a client (just joking) and his first impression of me was that I was a snob (that, sadly, is not a joke). One of my friend’s was about to get married and she asked me to sing at her wedding. Knowing that Brendon was an amazing musician I decided to ask him if he would accompany me on guitar. Apparently we “clicked” and the rest is history.
What qualities bring a smile to your face when you think of one another?
Brendon: I think of Kaytlin’s love, strong enough to show me that what I need is right in front of me.
Kaytlin: First thing I can think of is Brendon’s amazing creativity and ability to make people see a completely different side of life. He makes me appreciate things I never would have noticed before.
Got any goofy story to share? :))
Hmmmm…. I guess kind of goofy is when I was first trying to “court” Brendon. He was clueless and had no idea I was interested in him. He lived in a true “bachelor pad” with no real kitchen, no utensils, and the nastiest bathroom known to mankind. As a gesture of interest in him I brought him a box full of kitchen utensils and old pots and pans to use in his place, offered him rides home, and just basically tried anything to get his interest. No bites. Eventually he asked me out for a high class lunch on break one day from work to the fanciest restaurant in town “Bun on the Run” and bought me a grilled cheese sandwich. He proceeded to sit in front of me telling me about how he: 1/would never date another woman seriously again, 2/didn’t like children and didn’t think he could handle being around them all of the time, and 3/would never be able to settle down in one place for more than a year. Needless to say, I consider this goofy because none of it came to pass (aside from the settle down thing, Brendon will always have the travel bug but at least he’s settled for most of the year).
Why did you decide to get married in Mexico? Are you happy with your decision?
We decided on Mexico because the prospect of getting married here was overwhelming – too many guests to worry about, expensive, and lets face it, who doesn’t want to get married on a beautiful beach? And don’t forget the teradactyls… they were ultimately exciting for us and Ella. So happy we decided on Mexico that I almost want to do it again!
What is the most exciting time in your relationship?
The most exciting time is right now and it will always be.
Thank you guys so so much for letting me share your day! I L.O.V.E Mexico, it’s relaxed mood, it’s gorgeous sunny skies, it’s warm ocean waters, crazy drivers, wicked flee markets, running man on the street lights, time measured in mexican minutes, humid air, funky buses, oh the list can go on and on and on…Thank you!!
Getting a pedicure on the day of the wedding…I’m telling ya I don’t know how Kaytlin did it, I would have probably been jumping all over the place..:) She was just an image of calm.
Erika did a marvelous job with Kaytlin’s feet!
I loved this beautiful shadow of the palm tree, the photo is straight out of camera, I just cropped it a bit.
Lovely Spa Salon, Kaytlin and her family were pampered there..:)

Brendon dancing away with Ella! I actually believe it was Ella teaching Brendon how to dance..:)
There was another couple who was renewing their vows after 30 years of mariage on the same day and they came over to wish Kaytlin and Brendon much happiness on their day.
We stepped away from the reception for a few minutes to take a couple of photos at night.
I think this photo is one of my absolute favourites from the day! Much love to you, guys!!
