Stephanie and Brian's Condado Vanderbilt wedding was the dreamiest, and a delight to capture. From beginning to end, everything felt light, happy, and looked beautiful.
Wedding Getting Ready Photos at Condado Vanderbilt
Everything happened in the same hotel. That's always amazing because I can walk back and forth between locations to document the happenings in multiple areas. My day started with the boys at Brian's room at Condado Vanderbilt. As they dressed up, I captured candid portraits until Brian was ready for portraits.
Then, seeking indoor bright areas as it was still too early for outdoor portraits, we walked to the 2nd-floor bridge between both towers of the hotel, which is one of my favorite indoor places in the hotel to take photos because of the amazing lighting. We did some groom and groomsmen portraits before going up to Stephanie's suite.
At her room, a million things were happening at the same time, as usual. But amidst all the chaos, you could see Stephanie in such a calming and happy mood. I started with the details and accessories, then we did a couple of portraits of the bridesmaids in their robes, before getting dressed.

I loved Stephanie's gorgeous bridal gown, with an elegant simplicity that permeated throughout all the wedding design. After portraits were down, we walked downstairs to one of the Verandas (I've got to confess that I always forget which one's East and which one's West), for the oceanfront ceremony.
The ceremony was beautiful, very emotional. You could see clearly Stephanie and Brian's love, happiness and excitement; ever since they saw each other, they were completely lost in each other's eyes. This carried on through the newlywed portraits, the protocol, and the toasts.
Finally, the night turned into an amazing party, fueled by amazing music, food, drinks, and a coffee bar, which I love and visited a few times that night.
I went home with sore cheeks from smiling too much, and that's been happening again ever since I started this blog. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
