We have been shooting in Sarasota, Florida lately but two weeks ago, we had the pleasure of spending quite a bit of time with a fabulous couple, Alfredo and Natalia. We say fabulous because they were just so awesome to be around. Their groomsmen and bridesmaids were just the same. In fact, we have already shot pictures of most of the couple’s bridesmaids previously at other weddings, including a former bride of ours (Angelica,who now has triplets!!!)! It’s always awesome to see and hang out with former clients of ours.The ceremony and reception (both were at the same location) were not new to us by any stretch. Julieanne’s Patio Cafe was the setting and like always, they do such an outstanding job! See more from Julieanne’s Patio Cafe here.

One thing that really stood out at the event was the emotions. There was quite a few times emotions cropped up, including mother and father giving blessings over the bride, the first look, and during the vows. Those are the times that will be cherished. One more thing that really stood out was the willingness and involvement of the bridesmaids and groomsmen! I mean, the bridesmaids were willing to jump into a lifted Jeep with guns and role play like they were chasing the groomsmen!

Congratulations Alfredo and Natalia!
