I love it when my worlds collide. Besides being blessed to be a wedding photographer, I am also a middle school teacher. Tyler, my second photographer and I work at South Pointe Middle School. We got to transport back in time with my camera and capture scenes from the Renaissance.

A parade of seventh graders exited their classrooms to follow a band of musicians to the Faire! There were nobles, peasants, nuns, archers and of course knights.  The school band played authentic pieces from the era and other students preformed Renaissance Dances. Kids were entertained by a falcon show, fortune telling  and even did some jousting.

See all pictures taken at the Renaissance Faire here.

Colores Vividos… Mariachis… Bailes folkloricos Mexicanos… Fiesta…Música y por supuesto Tequila. La boda de Carolina y Dionicio fue un evento inolvidable.

Beautiful bugambilia flowers adorned the balcony of the Mission Inn. It was on this balcony that Michael waited for his bride to approach. Johana tapped the shoulder of the man she loved, he turned to see her smiling. That smile would remain on her face the entire day.
Family had flown in from Honduras to witness Michael and Johana get married. Her grandmother had given her a special blessing and her father walked her into the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel. Before a golden altar, Michael and Johana vowed to love each other forever. Marlon Martinez led a beautiful ceremony incorporating Hispanic customs as the exchanging of arras, the placing of a lazo around them, and offering flowers to Mary.
Outside, in unique Mission Inn tradition, their guest threw rose petals. They entered The Grand Parisian Ballroom and danced on a cloud of smoke. The dancing would continue the entire night. It was while dancing where they had met and fallen in love, so their first night of husband and wife would be no different. Johana even changed in a cute dancing dress. Michael never left her side… and he never will.

Bellas flores de bugambilia adornaban el balcón de Mission Inn. Fue en este balcón donde Michael espero que su novia llegara. Johana tocó el hombro del hombre que amaba, él voltio a verla sonreír. Esa sonrisa permanecería en su cara todo el día.
Familia voló de Honduras para ser testigos de la boda de Michael y Johana. Su abuelita le había dado un bendición especial y su papá la entregó a la capilla de San Francisco de Assisi. Ante un altar de ora, Michael y Johana juraron amarse para siempre. Marlon Martinez encabezó un linda ceremonia incorporando costumbres hispanas como las arras, el lazo y flores a María.
Afuera, en tradición única de Mission Inn, sus invitados tiraron pétalos de rosa. Ellos entraron al Salón de Baile Grand Parisian y bailaron en una nube d humo. El baile continuaría todo la noche. Fue bailando donde ellos se conocieron y se enamoraron, entonces su primera noche como hombre y mujer no sería diferente. Johana hasta se cambió a un lindo vestido de fiesta. Michael nunca dejó su lado… y nunca lo hará.

The dress hangs in the beautiful hallway of the Mission Inn

Tori or Torita as her friends call her, is a resident Rancho Cucamonga High Cougar. She is smart, sassy and oh the places she will go with her gritty, self-disciplined and driven personality. Tori spent her high school years building lifelong friendships on and off the volleyball court where she competed for both Rancho High, Club West Volleyball and Fortza Volleyball Club. Volleyball was the life of the party for the last four years which took her and her parents all across the country to compete in different tournaments. She’s a fighter, she fought through ACL surgery and some physical setbacks that came along with that. Tori has a keep on pushing attitude. Nothing will keep her down.
Tori is known as the fashionista of her group. In all actuality she’s been a fashionista since before kindergarten when she would voluntarily comment on her Mom and Aunt’s outfits at such a young age. Tori has an eye and passion for unique style, which has developed over the years, into her vision for her career that she would like to pursue. She is going to wisely start her journey at Chaffey Community College, then spread her wings at the University of North Texas to study digital retailing. Her end goal is to master the digital retailing space and become a retail buyer in the digital age of the 21st century.
All and all, Tori is a quiet , quirky and trust worthy soul that makes her loved and adored by her friends, family and most of all by her parents☺

Her daughter had just been born and Jennifer counted 15 birthdays in the future to see when Alyssa’s Quinceañera would be. It landed on Saturday, March 18th, 2017. It was then decided that Alyssa Janelle would celebrate her 15th birthday in full Mexican tradition on her actual birthday.
15 years of planning and the day finally arrived. She walked into the church with her parent’s and little brother by her side. She read scripture, received communion and left flowers for Mary. Her parent’s thanked God for her 15 years of life and prayed for her future.
Alyssa rode a Classic Chevrolet in a beautiful Gatsby Themed Gown. She danced only with her dad but celebrated with everyone.

Stephanie walked into class late. There was an empty seat. She asked the boy, “Can I sit here?” He replied, “No.” He was saving the seat for another girl. It would be something that Stephanie would never forget. His answer had been, “No.” Fast forward five years. This time it wasn’t a high school class they shared, but a gym.
Stephanie was upstairs working out on a bike and Franco was downstairs working out on equipment. Franco claims to this day that Stephanie was looking at him and that was the reason he went up to talk to her. Stephanie claims she was staring out into space. Regardless, she talked his ear off as he calmly listened to her. Numbers were exchanged and a couple of days later Franco texted Stephanie to hang out. For Franco this was a date and he showed up nicely dressed. Stephanie was just going to hang out so she wore a tube top with jeans and flip flops. Franco still makes fun of how she dressed for their first date. The second date came and already they both realized that they admired the same things in life…Love of Family, Values and Morals.
The Fourth of July arrived and  both of their families came together to celebrate. Each person made a wish and placed a lit lantern into the pool. Stephanie was the last one to make a wish. Everyone was staring at her and Stephanie was confused. There was Franco down on one knee. The girl he had once said, “No,” to was about to say, “Yes,” to him.

Years ago.. on this same date.. another wedding took place. It was Hannah’s grandparent’s anniversary. Her grandmother’s necklace hung on the bouquet she held as she walked towards the man she loved. Light rain had fallen, perhaps a sign from heaven… a showered blessing.
Ben teared up as he got the first sight of Hannah. The moment she stood by his side at the altar, a smile spread across his face. The woman who he loved was about to become his wife.
Hannah placed the ring on his finger. At the moment, he found out she had engraved on it the words, “Song of Solomon.”
Yes, they both had found each other. “I have found the one that my soul loves.”
