I've been trying to catch up on blogging, so I'm mixing recent and non-recent ones. Here's a beautiful #throwback that was due for a long time!
I met Micaela and William on their rehearsal dinner coverage at Raices Restaurant the night before their wedding. I immediately fell in love with the happy and familiar vibe they and their guests had going on. I captured mostly candids, but as I was about to head home everyone wanted portraits taken by me, so I got acquainted with almost everyone; I was excited and knew we would have a great time on their wedding day.
Destination Wedding at Hacienda Siesta Alegre
The next day, I arrived early for Micaela and William's getting ready photos at the hacienda. William and his groomsmen were already dressed up with their linen guayaberas, so we just hung out around the pool table and took some images before I headed to Micaela's suite.
The bridal suite was packed! They were all wearing bright blue robes, so before I did anything else, I captured some bridesmaid images. They were all super helpful, and Micaela got dressed up very quickly, so we went outdoors for beautiful bridal portraits before the ceremony.
It was a very bright and sunny day at the Hacienda, as you can see. They recited the vows under a fully blossomed Flamboyan tree and then moved onto a shaded lawn area for formal group portraits. We worked these portraits very quickly, so we got extra time for newlywed photos around the hacienda, which ended up as some of my favorite newlywed portrait sessions in this venue.
After the decor photos, the reception protocol quickly started, and we experienced beautiful first dances and emotive toasts. It was a happy, laid-back event and I'm glad I got to capture it!
