Cristina and I met for coffee to talk about their wedding and left that same day as friends…her wedding to her love Chris was nearly a year later and I couldn’t wait to work with them. Their day was blessed by a rare, bright, and sunny Texas spring day that left us searching for shade and chasing the sunset. Take a look!
The marriage of a Zumba instructor and a Boxing Judge sounds like it would be non-stop action and energy right…well…it absolutely was! The gorgeous day started with the ladies salsa dancing their way through hair and make-up and ended with the newlyweds salsa dancing through lines of sparklers held by family and friends who couldn’t wait to celebrate with them.
Oh, and there was a mariachi band…yes, it was as awesome as you imagine.
Here’s a look at their day.
A little over a year ago, I jumped at the chance to photograph John Mark’s surprise proposal to Carly – we spent the morning wandering downtown Austin celebrating and pausing for a few photos and even more excited kisses…and when they called about capturing their wedding, there was no answer except an all-caps YES!
They celebrated from sunup to well past sundown with friends and family even some strangers who joined in with congratulations along the way – here’s a little taste of my first wedding of 2016…and the reason I knew from the very beginning that this will be an amazing year.
