She walked into the cafe where their first date was set. He looked at her for the first time and it didn’t take long for him to know that she was the woman he wanted to marry. She was the woman he wanted to be with with, laugh with, confide in, and grow with. Monica was the cookie butter to his ice cream. And if you know anything about cookie butter, you KNOW that’s serious business…
Despite threats of rain and gloomy skies, Monica and Daniel were as calm as cucumbers without a care in the world. The way they laughed together, looked at each other, expressed affection… it was as if no one else was there. Their smiles and genuine joy were shining through the clouds the entire day. No stress. No setbacks. No worries. They were focused on each other. They were focused on the fact that they were each getting married to their best friend. Not to mention how incredibly AMAZING both of their families were. The JOY, the laughs, the energy that surrounded them on their wedding day was incredible and super contagious. All I can say is that, Momma Landgrave-Serrano is a ball of FIRE and she was just having the time of her life celebrating her daughter’s wedding. I absolutely loved… LOVED spending time with these two and their beautiful families and getting to know Monica and Daniel over the course of several months.
I just about lost it when they danced to one of my favorite songs ever, Vie en Rose for their first dance. They even sang it to each other… IN FRENCH! Oooooh these two, I can’t stop gushing about you! The amount of love and joy that was present in that ballroom was so beautiful, but in all honesty, it doesn’t surprise me one bit knowing the two of you. I would expect nothing less. It was such a pleasure and honor for me to photograph your wedding considering this was only my second wedding ever and first one done in Mexico. Another #SAbride added to the family and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have you! Enjoy this phase as newlyweds and remember… marriage is a beautiful, inspiring, challenging, and humbling journey. It’s not always rainbows and sunshine, but opening your heart and mind, living authentically and with intention and walking on this journey beside your best friend is the most beautiful experience you’ll ever have! SO many hugs! Love you guys!
