I met Beth & Raul through a mutual friend from high school & college. I had been in contact with Beth for almost a year before her wedding, and I knew she had a heart of gold. We met at Panera to discuss the wedding in more detail, and it was like we had known each other for years! Everything with this beautiful girl felt so natural.
On October 19th, 2018, I woke up to an absolute clear blue sky with average fall temperatures. Beth & Raul had the most perfect weather for their big day. My assistant and I drove to the golf club, which I had never shot at before, and it was stunning!
Immediately walking into the bridal suite, I felt more like part of the family! Everyone welcomed us with open arms, and continued to smile and laugh the entire time. Beth & Raul did not want to see each other before the ceremony, but they did want to pray together. This touched me to my core, as faith is a huge foundation of who I am as well.
When the dance floor opened up, I did not know what to expect. Raul and his mom’s first dance turned into a huge fiesta, literally!!! Everyone was up, and dancing, and you could just feel the love and joy that these two emulate every where around you.
Beth & Raul, thank you for trusting me with your most important day yet. I wish you both the best of luck in the years to come, and I hope we continue this friendship we have built. Love you guys!
Thank you to all the vendors that made this day possible!
