Hola everyone! Today I'm sharing one of my most fun and also one of my biggest weddings I've ever shot at the always dreamy Hacienda Siesta Alegre. I wasn't able to meet Jaynice and Daniel before their wedding, so I always get a little anxious about breaking the ice right there and then. However, as you'll see in the following photo set, they were an awesome couple -and guests- to work with.
Wedding Getting Ready at Villa Loma Sol
It was my first time at Villa Loma Sol. I was supposed to have Lindsay and Phillip's wedding there, but they eventually moved the venues, so I kept longing for an opportunity there, and it finally happened! Daniel and his cool groomsfolk group got ready at Villa Loma sol, where we did a lot of fun shots all around the place.
Guys don't usually enjoy the portrait set, so I keep it pretty basic, but these were all about it. I think the villa had a particular aesthetic that also made them feel they were part of a tv show. So after this fun portrait session, I drove a few minutes to Hacienda Siesta Alegre to meet Jaynice.

Similar to Daniel's, the mood at the bridal room was happy and electric. However, we might've underestimated the time it took for Jaynice to finish her hair and make-up. That was not a problem, everyone in the room put all hands on deck, and we were able to finish with enough time to even do some fantastic bridal shots before I had to run upstairs to the ceremony area.
The ceremony was full of deeply inspiring vows, lots of laughter, and passion. It was clear that not only they loved each other and are a perfect match, they also hold great admiration and respect for each other. And, I also gathered throughout the wedding day, so does everyone else around them.
Jaynice and Daniel were officially over and we had so much fun during the group portrait session. Eventually, everyone joined in for a big photo before I stole the newlyweds away for their portraits. Their portraits were effortlessly beautiful, and they're one of those couples I wished I had more time to photograph! But we heard from afar the MC calling us to the reception so it was definitely time to party! And for this part, I think the photos speak for themselves.
Thanks, J&D for your trust and happy disposition when allowing me to capture such a special day in your lives. I hope the rest of your life together is as exciting as your first day as a married couple. Cheers!
