Being present at Albert & Courtney’s wedding “fiesta” week, really made me see a whole new side of what a “family” really is. There were family present that didnt speak English. And there were friends present that didn’t understand any Spanish. None of that mattered. It was so cool to see everyone celebrate, truly celebrate, Courtney and Albert together. It all started with an upbeat Welcome from some salsa dancers, followed by a rehearsal dinner party ON A BOAT complete with a slide, snorkeling and INSANE gymnasts jumping from the roof of the boat. And we would bet money that no one dances with as much soul and happiness as Albert and Courtney. Such a fun “Carnival” party.
Unfortunately, since the wedding was so far from home, Courtney’s grandparents we unable to attend, BUT they were able to Skype with her and see her in her gorgeous wedding gown as if they were actually there. Courtney and Albert both made their own special vows to each other. We adored the cute little comment that Courtney made at the alter when she wanted to kiss Albert after he gave her his emotional vows, sadly the officiant said “No”. It’s so clear that they have a strong and loving marriage ahead of them and we wish them and Albert’s beautiful daughters the very best!
Such a pleasure working with one of our favorite destination photographers Jeremie Barlow again and to have our friend Adam Gilbert (a local filmmaker) help shoot this wedding. The photos and footage turned out great! See for yourself:)
Enjoy you two love birds!
