Buenos Dias!! How's everyone doing today? Had a great weekend. I was passing a local establishment and I could see they were setting up for a wedding. I inquired if they had a photographer and they said they had lots of people to take photos. I asked if I could and the bride asked if I was a Professional Photographer and I told her "Yes". She asked if she had to pay and I said "No", as I just wanted to do it for fun, with no pressure and because I'm not allowed to work here under Mexicos laws...yet, I hope to get my papers...

Anyways I got the go ahead. The sad thing was it clouded over just before the wedding, and just as the groom was standing waiting for her, and she was about to walk the aisle down the sandy beach, IT POURED!!

Pobre Sita! Poor Girl! She called everyone in and luckily I had a umbrella, I was the only one, I held it over the mother-of-the-bride as she came in. I had it because I didn't want my camera to get wet.

The wedding was BEAUTIFUL! They had it under the canopy/roof in the front of the building. The lighting was great as it was soft and so I was able to get some really nice shots without harsh shadows.

The bride and groom's spirit was so beautiful and you could tell by their actions, how deeply in love they are. It was so sweet, gives me goosebumps as I write this.

Later the rain stopped and we all went out and took photos of the bride and groom and all the family. I got some really great photos.

I made them into a 10 minute video and I'm going to give it to them as a gift.

We left as the ceremony ended, but later my girl said "I want some cake." I said "Okay, let's go see if I can photograph the cake."  We were too late though as they had already eaten it. But they gave us some cake anyways and invited us to stay for the party. They had a fire dancer and everyone was dancing. There was even a little boy, Angel's age and they danced and danced. It was so cute.

So that was our excitement this weekend. I can't really put any photos of them up until I get there permission, maybe later today I can ask them.

Cool thing is Angel had met them. She met them a couple of weeks before when she was running around with a langua de perro stuck on her hand and I guess she'd Wow'ed them. And they had all remembered each other. It was very cool how it all came full circle.
