From Ever After Wed… I’m not sure I have words to adequately introduce this crazy in love, can’t live without you couple, Christine and Jeremy. I had the honor of coordinating their destination wedding in the Encanted Island of Puerto Rico back in 2012. What started as a wedding planner helping a beautiful couple grew into an amazing friendship. So, a year later, I’ve had once again the privilege to recreate those moments but this time on our home turf.
Because of their Cuban-American romance we wanted something that had some history and romance, they had considered Vizcaya for their wedding when they first started planning so they knew the beauty of the place and once I mentioned it they where all in with me on the idea. There is an Old World feeling to it familiar to how their wedding felt in the Colonial city of Old San Juan. So having that reminiscent feeling in Miami was just perfect.
There’s nothing better than a perfectly laid -back after wedding session, specially when we have the most talented photographer I know to capture those images that they will treasure forever. We are madly in love with the amazing pictures.
This may be, hands-down, one of the most emotion-filled + heart-stoppingly romantic weddings I’ve planned to date and this Day After Session was, without a doubt, perfection.
