I cannot explain to you how eager I was for publishing this wedding! I met Jessica & Jorge the night before their wedding, at their Rehearsal/Welcome Dinner at Villa Montaña Beach Resort. I already had done one gorgeous engagement session, and a proposal before, so I was really excited about my first actual wedding on the venue.
From the instant I entered to the bridal preparation suite, I fell in love with all the details Jessica & Jorge, with aid from their wedding vendor team put together. I also took a quick visit to Jorge’s room, where I captured a couple of fun & candid moments of him with his family who were really excited about helping dress him up.
The ceremony was filled with laughter, tears, and specially, excitement. After the ceremony concluded, we quickly took a stroll through the gorgeous villas for the family and bride & groom portraits. We were so happy about portraits we forgot to sign the marriage certificate!! So after we went back so they could sign, we finished the portraits at the beach area, where we shared a glorious sunset.
The reception was held at the Eclipse Restaurant, which had a beautiful rustic decor. Toasts & protocol started as usual, a couple of laughs, tears.. and suddenly, the bride’s brother surprised everyone announcing a harlem shake, which kickstarted the party. With the great entertainment of DJ Emir Feliciano, guests never left the dancefloor until the Batucada arrived for “la hora loca” (spanish for crazy hour). This consists on a particularly entertaining moment of the night when everyone puts on carnival accessories and dance the night off.
As always, here I’m sharing the vendor list, and the beautiful & fun images I hope you enjoy, as I enjoyed capturing them!
Cheers for a never-ending, happy honeymoon!
