These are good people. Strong, fun- loving, passionate, kind, down-to-earth people. 250 of Samantha and Andres’s closest friends and family came to celebrate and share in their beautiful day. They had the support of their families- generations of love, who instilled the value of commitment and honoring each other and friends who adored them. It’s as if these two were born for each other. In my early meetings with them, I was amazed at their friendship and how they partnered. I grew to see and feel just how much they loved they each other. The ceremony was centered around their love for God and each other in a simple church with meaningful vows that echoed throughout. I nearly broke down when Andres saw his bride walk through the chapel doors. I feel in love with the ring bearer TJ- he was the first to dance, carried the little sign down the aisle with poise and kept me laughing all day. Sam’s sister/maid of honor could not have been more devoted to ensuring her sister had the most memorable day of her life. The reception was a blast- They had a brilliant musician, band, dj, food for days, champagne and young and old danced the night away. Towards the end of the reception they did a Mexican Marcha. I was amazed watching it- everyone partnered, formed tunnels, rings, laughed, clapped…it was great! I felt honored to be a part of your day and capture moments I hope one day you share with your grandchildren. CONGRATULATIONS Mr. & Mrs. Padilla, may you always find refuge, laughter, and love in each other!
