If I haven’t said it enough, I am incredibly grateful and appreciative for the interesting people I have met throughout my career. While Erin is from Texas, I didn’t actually get to meet her & Felix until we were bunked up at the Schloss Eckberg castle in the middle of December. It was very cold for my Texan blood but the Christmas market was in full force so I had plenty of mulled wine to warm me up. Christmas time in Germany is beyond charming, combine that with an adorable love story and my heart was ready to explode. Felix is from Germany, in a town not far from Dresden, but they met in a bar in El Paso, TX of all places. The German military has taken him all over but that didn’t slow them down, Erin made sure to travel to wherever he ended up stationed. Their ceremony was sweet and heartfelt but what I will never forget is the amount of love that was poured into every speech given. When I say there was not a dry eye in the house/castle, I mean it, including me. Erin’s two brothers totally melted my heart. Since the sun set at 4pm on the wedding day, we went back out for more photos of the two of them in Dresden a couple days later. MAJOR props to Erin for looking warm in all the photos considering it was a chilly 35 degrees that day. That night her family took all of us out to a traditional German dinner that ended in the hotel spa with champagne. This was one hell of a weekend I will never ever forget. Can we do it again some time? Special thanks to Tricia Hamil for helping the day run smoothly & for making it more beautiful.

My first two weddings of 2016 took place in the beautiful country of Guatemala and because I didn’t have anything scheduled in between them, I decided to stick around. I ended up spending over 6 weeks in Central America, adventuring out to Belize & Honduras as well. Even with that much time accumulated, I still can’t wait to go back because that is how special of an area it is. Andrea & Chris found me through a referral and I am thankful that our paths were able to cross. A testament to how amazing they are is shown by the 180 guests that flew from all over to be a part of their big day. The day before the wedding we roamed the streets taking photos to assure that we could give Antigua the proper time it deserves. The wedding itself was held at Casa Santo Domingo but we ventured out to Santa Clara for the first look. During the sunset Catholic ceremony we could hear the volcano erupting, which sounds like thunder, an experience never to be forgotten. As soon as the reception began the dance floor was full, people from Ohio certainly know how to party. It only stopped after 2am when the venue basically had to kick us out. I would party with these kids any day.

Mimi and Conor got married on an amazingly beautiful day this past January at Las Capuchinas in Antigua Guatemala, one of my favorite wedding venues in… the world. They had never been to Guatemala before but they trusted their guts, their wedding planner of I Do Guatemala, & the photos they had seen online. Having met in Iraq I consider them both fellow nomads, like myself, they’re current location is just as hard to track down as mine!  Conor was persistent after 2 years of friendship with Mimi and after a random trip to Belize they started dating. We first met in Washington DC for their engagement session exactly 2 months before their wedding day. Mimi has an infectious spirit and a light-heartedness that makes what can potentially be a stressful day, like a wedding, feel like a breeze and Conor, despite a recent injury, was killing it on the dance floor. Right before the ceremony started the Aguacate volcano began to erupt with smoke, as Mimi said “it’s every girl’s dream to have a volcano erupt on her wedding day”. After the wedding we all took the trip to Lake Atitlan for a sunrise/5:30am ‘day after’ session so Mimi and Conor could jump into the lake. It was the perfect way to solidify them ‘taking the plunge’ of marriage together and I can’t wait to see where their next adventure brings them. :)

Kristin & Alejandro are some of the most easy going people I’ve ever met and I was lucky to be available for the wedding in August just 4 months out. Even with the large probability of rain, Kristin always remained in high spirits and was willing to get drenched in her wedding dress for some great photos. Their traditional Catholic ceremony at La Merced started right at sunset and left us leaving right at the beautiful time of twilight. Las Capuchinas was lit up with color for the reception and was the perfect reception venue to show off the amazing historic architecture Antigua, Guatemala has. The reception ended at 11 but we continued photos, utilizing the rainy weather to our benefit. I’ll never forget rolling down the streets of Antigua with the bride, groom, & his parents in back with their good friend driving and his wife scrunched in the middle blaring “El Taxi” by Pitbull with the windows down at midnight.
