This past Friday my husband and I had the honor of photographing Sophia and Anthony’s wedding at The Biltmore Hotel and all I can say is PERFECTION from beginning to end. I was actually just backing up their pictures, as I do right after each wedding, and I just couldn’t help myself, I ended up posting this “short” preview. Actually I’m so in love with this wedding, I normally only post weddings that, for the most part, take place during the day. I really love daytime weddings, but I have to admit, I also really like the look and feel of nigh time weddings. Since a lot of my brides ask me to show them pictures of night time weddings when they come to my studio I decided to share this post. Sophia and Anthony’s wedding is a great example of what a wedding that starts by the end of the afternoon (and it’s pretty much all at night) looks like. Yeah, yeah, I know, the fact that Sophia is a complete and absolute beauty from head to toe doesn’t hurt :) Anthony you looked really good too ;-)
So at this moment that I’m finishing writing this post, a day and a half after the actual wedding, I backed up all the pictures, I haven’t seen most of my husband’s pictures, and pretty much I just scanned through the reception ones but I haven’t really seen them yet in detail, those are the ones that make me laugh!!! So this post is kind of a long preview of what caught my attention really quick, I’m sure there are going to be so many more that are going to start showing up! Oh! And I have to say, usually I don’t post a lot of church pictures either but seriously, Church of the Epiphany is so beautiful and modern, so many angles and good lighting (for a church) and on top of that they are super nice and flexible!
I love that feeling of exhaustion the weekend after a wedding but at the same time that feeling of joy because we had such a really good time with everybody. We captured so many amazing moments! And by the way, the responsible for running this show so smoothly and with such great energy is no less than Eric Trelles of ET Events, it’s always a pleasure working with the best in this beautiful wedding industry. Of course Sophia’s makeup was impeccable thanks to my beautiful and longtime friend Maritza Valle owner of Makeup by Marz and her amazing and super fun team!
So I hope you guys really love Sophia and Anthony’s wedding as much as I did and enjoy your Sunday!
With Love, Lara
