The weather was perfect.
Denisse and Armando’s Zed451 wedding was epic! I have to say, brunch weddings are one of my favorites. All of the girls were getting ready at Affinia Hotel, bright and early in the morning. And, by the way, the staff is amazing there. Gah! Check out all of the details, from the shoes and flowers, to the jewelry Denisse’s aunt made specialy for her and all of the bridesmaids. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful. 🙂 All starting out with the first shot of little Natalia of the day…
There’s a certain energy when everyone gets ready together for the wedding- a bit of a mix of intimacy, calm, and excitement all rolled into one. The major part of the calm is because Denisse’s dear friend/ wedding planner Ira Staples had everything set up perfectly!
Like father, like daughter- these shots were taken within a minute of each other. 😉
Perfect reception location! ZED451 seemed to have infinite photo ops, every angle of that restaurant is amazing! Denisse and Armando’s ceremony was on the second floor. Details included in that? a ring warming ceremony coupled with a touching winebox ceremony. What is that you ask? Denisse and Armando wrote love letters to each other and accompanied them with a bottle of wine Denisse purchased for a special occasion 10 years ago. They sealed and locked the box and each year will add another letter to the bunch until their 10 year anniversary- when they will spend an evening opening the envelopes and drinking the wine. Yay! Hahaha, when their grandmother handed them the bottle of wine during the ceremony, she proceeded to mention- “Don’t worry, I didn’t drink it.” Awesome.
Best officiant ever! Not to mention, he is an awesome dancer.
We were taking shots on the rooftop, when Armando asked Denisse to dance- what a touching location for the first dance!
Armando and Denisse, you two were absolutely beautiful and amazing. Thank you so so much for giving us the opportunity to shoot your wedding.
