Allison and Jesus are high school sweethearts. Allison was in pit (percussionist who perform during half time in front of the marching band) and Jesus was in the drumline. Which is how they met. Now years later, married. They had their wedding ceremony at a beautiful church in Harlingen, and it was such a happy ceremony.
It poured rain for two days before the wedding which was making me nervous because the plan was to take a few portraits outside. Then three hours before the ceremony it cleared up and went to a nice 80 degree weather. =D This is my favorite part of the wedding day. Everyone is much more relaxed, being themselves and working it!! From the beginning, Allison told me she wanted a "jumping" group shot. Which is my favorite fun-UN perfect shot of the session (you see it towards the end). Love!
The reception was a complete blast and such a joyful experience . The toasts, the dances. I swear I tear up at every wedding during the B&G's first dance and the father daughter dance. The way the groom holds his bride-- like he's holding the most beautiful thing he's ever seen in his life. The way the father holds his daughter, reminiscing all the "moments" in life he will remember eternally of his little girl. It gets me EV-ER-Y time.
Then after that there was some serious dancing and tons of laughter going on.
Thank you Allison and Jesus for asking me to capture such a beautiful day. You two are a perfect pair!
I want to give a little shout out to fashion photographer, Miguel Sanchez who assisted me as a second shooter. He took care of the guys and opposite angles. (See if you can spot him on the "dancing" collage) You are awesome and it was such a pleasure to work with you!!
