Before Elana & Jose’s day, I had never done any weddings at the gorgeous Condado Vanderbilt, however, on numerous occasions I’ve visited and found the hotel and service to be close to perfect. I’m super excited to finally have been presented by the opportunity to work there, and also to have done it among a team of awesome vendors.
Details and Wedding Gifts
My day started at Elana’s room. While she calmly got her hair & make-up, I took memories of her getting-ready as well as her details, and gifts. Similar photos were taken for Jose, while he smiled in nervousness. Something very special about this part of the day is that they had very personal and special gifts for each other: José got one of his favorite childhood books and a very luxurious watch, while Elana got a chronological Bible with a very special note which made her burst into tears.
After these portraits, a beautiful and emotive ceremony took place, where both mothers took a moment to read passages as a blessing for the newlyweds. Then we took bride and groom portraits, followed by one of the most gorgeous reception decors in my recent times, in a black and gold theme. Quickly to the photos, they talk more than a thousand words. Congratulations to Elana & Jose, you really were a bliss to capture. I wish you many blessings in this new life together.
