Belen + Larry

Joyful Wedding ceremony in Bakersfield, Ca  |  January 15th, 2017

What a wonderful Friday to blog about this admirable couple and their captivating wedding. The day flowed easy and smooth. Everything was very organized and relaxing. The bride was incredibly creative, for she made all the invitations and decor with the help of her mother & bridesmaids. Even though the weather was a bit cold, we were still capable of capturing their exquisite moments. We were extremely pleased be part of  this wonderful couple's wedding day. 

Belen and Larry were friends in high school, but sadly lost touch after Larry went away to Merced in 2012. He later came back to Bakersfield to attend Bakersfield College. Larry in a sense saved Belen from her "worst date back from high school". They starting talking and catching up, and since then they have been inseparable.

Belen grew up in Delano were she frequently celebrated easter at this certain park. Sadly the tradition ended when her grandma moved. Belen had many fond memories at this park, and it was very important to her. Larry proposed at the same park making it even more special. 

Their first official date was when they went to San Francisco in May after his 21st birthday. They went as friends, and they came home as a couple. All their friends had already speculated that they were dating since October. Sooner or later they started throwing around the thought of them actually dating since they were completely inseparable. 

We are more than honored to document this beautiful day. The ceremony was surrounded by love from friends and family all around. Their goofy love was a precious joy to witness and capture. Congratulations to this beautiful couple, and may you be blessed with many years of happiness.
