Saturday Morning Movie: Traditional Mexican Hacienda Wedding

Happy Saturday morning! No need to attack that to-do list just yet; it’s the weekend and you deserve a break (am I right or am I right!?). So pour a second cup of coffee and settle in for some good vibes with this wedding clip courtesy of Light Cannon Films. It has transatlantic love, a gorgeous gown and a sweet, emotional Mother of the Groom – what more could you ask for?

From Light Cannon Films… When Ana called us over a year before her wedding and asked us to be a part of her big day in Mexico City, it seemed like a dream. But it didn’t get any more real as the day approached; and the actual wedding was the most surreal part. Not only did we have the thrill of seeing another culture’s celebration of love, we got a glimpse into the lives of two people who we will never forget.

Ana and Evan met in Paris while both studying abroad, but it wasn’t until their tour was almost over that they realized they didn’t want to be apart. So, Evan vowed to buy a ticket to visit Ana in Mexico City, a promise Ana didn’t yet understand the depth of. Evan held true to his word and immersed himself in Ana’s world, even learning Spanish and working for her father. When they faced obstacles that came from an international relationship, they overcame them. When they could have easily decided it would be simpler to part ways and live their separate lives, they held fast to each other and came out stronger.

It’s no wonder that their wedding day was the most epic beginning to the Perrys’ forever. From a riverboat rainstorm to a traditional church in the heart of Mexico City, to a breathtaking vintage hacienda for a reception that lasted all night, their rehearsal and wedding was a non-stop celebration of two becoming one.

Bright Pink + Glamorous Gold Will Never Go Out Style

This Bride was made for the silver screen and her wedding was perfectly fit for an old Hollywood movie, from the gorgeous rose bouquet in blush and bright pink, to her classic hairstyle. She wed her handsome Groom surrounded by gold glam and Dana Fernandez captured it all. If you need us, we’ll be pinning every pic (this, this and this are must see’s!) from the Vault and loving every single second of it!

Chateau

From Dana Fernandez Photography… Brett and Kaci’s wedding day was absolutely worthy of a cinematic love story. In true old Hollywood style, Kaci worked with Serendipitous Event Planning to chose neutrals, gold and pinks for her décor. She looked poised, elegant and truly royal in her Essense of Australia dress. Brett looked like a dapper leading man in his finely cut tuxedo by Michael Kors. Together, they are a truly charming couple – as completely likable as they are ready for the silver screen!

To add to the sophisticated theme, the two were married at a romantic French Chateau inspired venue, called Chateau Cocomar which is nestled away within a Houston suburb. The venue was just as elegant as the wedding with marble, white, and gold accents, which also made it a dream to photograph. The ceremony was held in the upstairs in front of an ornate and oversized fireplace alongside beautiful ombre pink florals. After the ceremony, guests were welcomed into a reception dripping in over the top gorgeous florals at each table by Flora & Eventi.

The handsome couple spent the evening dancing the night away to an 80’s rock band. And once the party came to a close, friends and loved ones wished the newlyweds good luck and farewell with a sparkler exit. And so the film came to a close with a little movie magic as Kaci and Brett drove off in a classic 1950’s Rolls Royce. It was such a joy to work with this amazing couple that reminded us that fairytales really do come true!

Escape to Florence with this Sweet E-Shoot

My hubby and I have been creating a list of places we must visit and at the tippy top? Florence. I was there briefly in college and it was way too short – and without my special person. Florence is a city made for lovers and these two would agree. Gert Huygaerts captured their too-sweet-for-words engagement session and their Vault gallery is our wanderlust motivation destination for the time being.

From Gert Huygaerts… When Lynzie and Josh from Chicago contacted me a few months ago to see if I wanted to shoot their wedding next year, I didn’t really doubt for more than a second… as Lynzie knew exactly what she wanted being a wedding photographer herself.

Having a wedding in Tuscany and with Lynzie and Josh looking for a wedding venue for their big day, we decided to have their engagement shoot in the wonderful city of Florence… it was full spring and the temperature was nice, so the moods were good!

In the amazing old architecture of this Italian masterpiece, we had the most beautiful views and moments full of love… an Italian dream come true!

I’m already looking forward to next summer when they will be coming back to Europe to have their big day. It will sure be a day full of love in an amazing place… I can already feel that!
