Spring was the perfect season get married in, and the gentle cool breeze felt amazing. Isabel and her bridesmaids spent the morning relaxing with no stress. Everyone was on time, so they had plenty of time. Isabel’s eldest daughter Maribel was full of joy. She was such a lil sweet heart she was always ready to pose and make people smile. She must have got that from her gorgeous momma. Their daughters looked too cute in their tulle dresses, and the bridesmaids looked stunning in their burgundy gowns. Isabel was the center of attention in her captivating wedding gowns and amazing updo too. My girl Isabel is fancy. She had two unique wedding gowns: one for everything and one special one for the ceremony. Jose was looking sharp with his black bow tie and stellar watch.
Shortly after Isabel finished getting ready, we prepared Jose for the first look of his wife to be. He was all smiles when he saw how stunning Isabel looked. Jose and Isabelle are super a cute couple. After giving them some time to take it all in, we started their portraits right away. They were both excited, yet relaxed and ready.
The ceremony was held in the middle of a man-made lake with water fountains and flowers decorating the scenery all around. There were roses, lilies, and carnations. The decorations looked terrific, and Jose and Isabel complemented each other well in front of all their loved ones. My favorite part was the idea they have for an anniversary box. In this anniversary box, they have a bottle of wine with two glasses and letters they have written. In one year they will revisit anniversary box. They will drink the wine and read each other’s notes then they replenish the wine and the letters for next year. I thought this was the cutest thing ever. Shortly after the ceremony, we jumped right into family formals and a few more JUST MARRIED photos.
The reception was grand and spectacular. After the bridal party was introduced, the newlyweds shared their first dance as a married couple. It was very romantic because the lights were just right and fog machines made for spectacular scenery. After a delicious dinner, the reception officially began with all the dances beginning. First was Jose & his beautiful mother-son dance. Then Isabel shared an emotional dance with her mother and grandfather. Even I cried during the dance with her mom. Other than that tear jerking moment the night was full of laughter and dancing. Dj Nexxt kept the party going with the best cumbias.
