My job becomes so much easier when you're photographing beautiful people in a beautiful place. Add a bit of perfection and the possibilities are endless. Ray & Priscilla are an impeccable match. Ray is such a family-oriented gentleman with plenty of charm, and Priscilla simply loves innocently and immeasurably. She's a goofy kinda girl, and she totally owns it. It's no mystery why they fell in love.
Priscilla was all smiles and giggles that morning. She wasn't stressed or overwhelmed as with the help of family and friends, they had been planning this day for months. Priscilla got dressed in her bedroom, still filled with clothes, her bedspread and pictures of her and her boyfriend, fiancé, and soon-to-be-husband. She decided to do a first-look with her dad before appearing before her entire family, and this is where she had to work hard to keep it together.
Ray and his groomsmen got ready at the blue Zedler Mill home across the street. I raved over the accessories he chose to wear with his suit. You'll know what I mean when you see them. All the guys looked sharp, and on point. On Fleek? Whatever, I tried.
About an hour and a half before the ceremony, Priscilla snuck up behind Ray for a first look. Neither of them could stop smiling, and just wanted to be in each other's arms. The bride couldn't help but get a bit emotional, but it didn't take long for her to come back to her giggly and vibrant self.
Although the week's weather threatened to bring rain, the day turned out absolutely beautiful. The spring sun was out and it was too beautiful to not dip into the clear waters behind the ceremony. Those of you that were there, you know what I'm talking about. We all saw that one guy... -_-
Before their large group of family and friends, they vowed to love and lift each other spiritually "for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken".
Priscilla and her sister Denis shared a moment shortly after the ceremony. It had us all tearing up, but little sis' Denis has got her sister's back. She quickly had her suck it up and patted her makeup down.
The reception included a surprise mariachi for the bride as a gift from her new hubby, a delicious dinner made by a chef friend of theirs [Seriously though, who made this food? I'm still dreaming about it!], an emotional father-daughter dance, an adorable little dance a group of young girls did as a surprise for Ray, and some delightful cake. The night ended with sparklers and the couple walking back to the blue Zedler Mill home across the street.
P&R, Ray & Prissy, Raycilla, Prismundo? I don't know, you guys will have to figure out that ship name. Anyway, I hope, no -- I KNOW you enjoyed your honeymoon cruise to Cozumel, Belize and Honduras. I was so jealous seeing your pictures when you came back. You two are an inspiring couple, and balance each other perfectly. I can't wait to see what the future holds for you.
P.S. Priscilla, Don't forget your mom promised me some pozole. XD
