There are the kinds of weddings that are subdued, quiet and almost a little shy. They are beautifully reserved and classic.

Then there are the party weddings.

Those are the ones that are bursting at the seams from all the excitement and communal fellowship. In fact, Alexis warned me beforehand that her family was so fun and open that I’d probably end up dancing with them by the end of the night. I was given the strict instructions to have fun as well, and let me tell ya, fun was had by all. As Hora Loca rolled around, Colombian flags and typical hats came out, Agua Ardiente was passed around and I may or may not have been given and worn a flashy tiara. I’ll never tell.

The couple drove off into the night on a traditional Colombian Chiva and it was the perfect getaway to a ridiculously fun day.

The first time I met Alicia and Carlos we had some coffee and spent a good half hour passionately discussing Breaking Bad. That’s when I knew we were meant to be. TV Shows are my love language, of course.

A few months later we met at another coffee shop for their engagement session. The weather was less than ideal but being the troopers that they are, Alicia and Carlos happily grabbed an umbrella and followed me along the streets of Wynwood.

They are the cutest and I can’t wait to be a part of their wedding celebration next year.

Kinsey and Jonathan are two peas in a pod. Most of their conversations include inside jokes, a silly face to one another and some stolen kisses.

Even though that pesky summer-time rain threatened to come down during their outdoor wedding, Kinsey and Jon were not worried. They knew as long as they got to exchange vows, that was all that mattered. Miraculously, the clouds started to disappear and right when Kinsey started to walk down the isle, the sun peeked out and the rest of their wedding went off without a hitch.

When Danny and Steph approached me to do an adventure=themed shoot, I probably giggled like a fool.

Not only do I love action-packed sessions, after knowing them for a few years, I know for a fact that Steph and Danny know how to make everything fun. We spent a lovely day exploring, laughing and taking photos. Three of my favorite things.

A big thank you to them for bringing me along and trusting my vision, especially when I told them to throw oranges at me :)
