Real Couples // A Rainbow-Themed Celebration Of Love in Cancún: Ariadna + Laura

Real Couples // A Rainbow-Themed Celebration Of Love in Cancún: Ariadna + Laura

Nuestra mayor inspiración para planear la boda fue el lugar en dónde nos conocimos y en nuestras personalidades. A las dos nos encanta la playa, el mar y la suave arena del caribe, por lo que, queríamos que todos estos elementos tuvieran un lugar importante dentro de nuestro gran día! Somos personas muy alegres y nos encanta la música, así que decidimos que la decoración y la temática serian colore alegres y llenos de vida ( verde, amarillo, fucsia y azul). Decidimos gastar una buena parte de nuestro presupuesto en los músicos! Asi que, buscamos una persona con la que nos identificáramos para que tocara en vivo durante la ceremonia nuestras canciones favoritas y con un toque especial.  El mariachi no podía faltar al salir del altar para celebrar y por último una banda de música en vivo durante la fiesta no podía faltar. La ceremonia fue oficiada por una ministro muy amiga de nosotras por lo qué, el discurso fue aún mas emotivo y personalizado.

Real Couples // Intimate Same-Sex Wedding on the Beach in Cancun: Corina + Corynn

"We met in high school and were friends, but we ran in different circles. We fell in love nine years later when we ended up working for the same company. It was only a week into dating that we both knew: this is it!

Our proposal was a complete shock to me. I just didn't think that Corynn could do all of that behind my back. She completely surprised me, proposing at sunset on our first trip to Cancun. She even called my mom before getting the ring and asked her for my hand in marriage! I'm so proud of my engagement ring. Corynn did excellent. I told her I wanted something unique with lots of bling, and boy did she listen.

Real Couples // Winter Solstice Elopement: Will + Ruby

Real Couples // Winter Solstice Elopement: Will + Ruby

Will and Ruby eloped on the winter solstice, December 21, 2016, at Charlotte Beach in Vermont. Will built a fire from drift wood to warm their hands, much to the confusion of their puppy, who continuously tried to start a game of fetch. A truly intimate event, the only people present were myself and the officiant while they exchanged their vows on the shores of Lake Champlain. It was incredible. 

"We chose to celebrate our marriage on the winter solstice to create a glowing memory to brighten the shortest and darkest day of the year. The lake and Charlotte Beach hold a wistful and romantic place in both of our lives. We could not have picked a more memorable and moving time, place, and photographer to engrave this moment into our memory." - Will

It took a subsequent trip together to Vancouver for me to catch on.

Real Couples // A Stress Free, No Fuss Wedding: Miranda + Andrew

Miranda and Andrew spent more time deciding how to celebrate tying the knot than actually planning the occasion. From city hall, to small beach ceremony, to a grand celebration at Nixon Library, it took them some time to figure it out.

Real Couples // Love + Zen: Alexa + Stephen

Real Couples // Love + Zen: Alexa + Stephen

Alexa and Stephen are totally awesome. Alexa is a petite and meditative (with a Buddha-like personality) woman from Puerto Rico. She has an awesome Brooklyn accent, and wildly amazing hair. Stephen is originally from Washington state, and is funny and quirky, and still knows how to rock a paperboy hat and suspenders. Their energy from day one of knowing them was rooted in just being, and loving and it shows. Best of all, they were so real, top to bottom. They met while working together at Ruby Tuesdays in Virginia Beach, and fell in love. What is more real than that? Their wedding was crazy fun, and felt like a true celebration of not only their love, but their families as well. They blasted traditional Puerto Rican music far into the night, danced their butts off, and belted in Spanish with fist pumps in the air.
