The plans were in place for a beautiful, intimate, Fall, first look for Julia and Luis. As the day approached the forecast looked like there would be nothing but cold and rain that day. In order to create a first look outside of the small church where the ceremony was being held and where the wedding party was going to get ready, we found a pavilion at Letchworth State Park that they were able to rent in order to have a "somewhat" outdoor first look. Though a bit tense about the changes of her day, Julia made a most beautiful bride and had a wonderful day filled with lots of laughter and love! Luis's quiet nature is a wonderful compliment to Julia's more outgoing and take charge personality and you could see through out the day how much their new family loves and supports each other. Be sure to leave the couple some love in the comments when you get to the end.
Loved the foot jewelry but also loved that Julia created Luis's boutonniere with a picture of his mother attached. Finishing touches on the kiddos... Buttons, buttons and more buttons.... Luis waiting by the warm fire while his bride gets into place. While you cannot see it in the picture the ground was covered in puddles she had to navigate to get to her man :) This was grandma's veil that she had worn at her wedding. Love when the family heirlooms become part of the new generations' memories! This shawl was made and used by her great grandmother! Julia had a special dance with her grandpa, Luis had a special dance with his sister in honor of their mother, and then he sweetly danced with Julia's mom as well. Crystal Sound got the party jumping! Julia and Luis, we thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your beautiful day! We wish you lots of love and bright and joyful future with your wonderful family!
