When Nely and Cesar got married all of their friends and family pulled together to make their day memorable. Nely’s day started at her mothers home. She was nervous and kept contemplating the idea if it was too early to put on the dress. But when the time came she slipped into her dress. Her mom helped her with her details, the shoes, the veil, the bracelet and her earrings. Those earring are her mom’s treasure. They were a gift from her late husband. He presented her these pearl and diamond earrings on their wedding day. As a kid Nely remembers her mom showing the gift and telling her and her sister when their wedding day comes these are the earring they will wear.
At Nuestra Señora del Pilar is where we met up with Cesar. He was cool and collected while greeting guest and family. As he waited at the end of the church isle, flower girls made their way down. Now it was the brides turn. This is moment where you could see emotions take over of a no longer cool and collected man. Once it was only them at the altar you could see that all he wanted was to give her a kiss, but it wasn’t time yet.
After the ceremony we decided to stop by a field at Mountain View Collage for a short portrait session with the newly Mr. & Mrs. Still running with the emotion from the ceremony Veronica and I used it to fuel the session to our advantage. We captured exactly what we expected.
A last minute gift to the couple from Cesar’s family was El Mariachi La Gran Plaza. They entertained the couple and guest while food was served at the Windsor at Hebron Park. El mariachi transitioned to a set by Dj Evolution who introduced the couple to their first dance. The Elvis Presley classic “Can’t Help Falling In Love” filled the room as the couple swayed from side to side. Cesar’s mom held her son tight during the mother son dance. Tears flowed as Nely’s brothers danced with her in lieu of her father. On such an emotional day the best way to end the night was with la hora loca (the crazy hour). Dancing, laughter and joy brought the night to a close. Below is this same story in picture form, enjoy.
