Brittany and Jesús overcame multiple obstacles in their courtship, and wanted to celebrate their marriage with an intimate island wedding that included their closest friends and family. What better way to incorporate family traditions than a destination wedding in Puerto Rico?! They combined their unique perspective with Puerto Rican traditions to create a wedding that was uniquely theirs. We had an adventure session in Old San Juan the day before their dreamy beach wedding, and every aspect of their wedding weekend was perfectly suited to Brittany & Jesús.

Noah Singh and Maxine Lopez-Keough got married on Labor Day weekend with a 3 day long goth inspired, enchanted forest wedding extravaganza. Their welcome reception ended with desserts in a Japanese lantern filled forest and a bomb fire surrounded by a circle of monoliths. Their wedding day included a lunch time picnic catered by food trucks. Their 400 guest ceremony was lit with hundreds of gothic candles and twinkle lights strung through the trees, and their reception filled with dark purple florals, ivy, moon inspired decor, and SO much more left everyone breathless. As if the occasion wasn’t enough, the night ended with a spectacular firework show. See all the magic for yourself…
