Lissette and Sean met at school and knew they were meant for each other right away! Their friendship quickly grew to a beautiful romance that eventually turned into a proposal. Their love for travel, culture, and Puerto Rican food made them quickly decide they would have their wedding at Puerto Rico.
This was an early 2017 wedding that I missed to publish after the Hurricane Maria interrupted my sacred bi-weekly blogging routine! So here's a throwback to Sean & Lissette's day!
Their favorite wedding choices
When asked about their favorite wedding choices, they mentioned: their spouse, Hacienda Siesta Alegre, getting a band, getting good food, and having me as a photographer *blushes*. This list, as common as it may seem, did not mention too many frills, just relationships, happy moments, and someone to capture them. And that was exactly what their wedding was about.
Hacienda Siesta Alegre Wedding
I arrived a few hours before the ceremony, to find Sean and his groomsmen playing pool table on one of the terraces of the Hacienda. However, when I arrived, Sean got a little nervous, as there was a gift from Lissette waiting for him. It was a letter, which words I do not know, but I do know they were incredibly touching for him. After a little alone time, I took him back with the groomsmen so we could do a couple more portraits.
Then, it was Lissette's turn. She was happy, glowing, so excited! I think one of the things they were looking forward to the most, was their almost-first look. Where Sean would wait by the corner for Lissette to hold her hand while they had a moment of prayer together before the Ceremony, putting their upcoming marriage in the hands of God, and thanking for the opportunity of having all their loved ones together that night.
The ceremony, portraits, and reception were a continuous celebration of love, family, and friendship. Happiness with no frills, and a great party.
It was amazing to capture such a special day, and I'm glad I get to share it with you!
