Erlinda laughed with her maid of honor and cousin as her make up and hair were being done. Signs that her mom and grandma were watching over her kept coming throughout the day. Her mom was being honored in so many ways. Her mom’s wedding picture was there, she had sewn a heart from her wedding dress into hers and when she would lay flowers to Mary, another image of her mom would be there, reminding everyone of the great faith her mom had and had instilled in her.
Hector and Erlinda would be married on the outside patio of the church. A very select number of family and friends would attend. Countless others would be watching the live stream of the event. The wind blew the cascading fabric around the posts. The constantly smiled and laughed throughout their ceremony, but took in all seriousness to love each other forever.
We captured a group photo with all 20 guests, and some with cell phones outreached so families watching from afar could be in a picture with the bride. Hector and Erlinda wanted one picture at least inside the church. I knew every pew would have been filled with family and friends, but they stood at the altar in an empty church. There was a first dance and an emotional toast that truly highlighted their love story.
Since one day is not enough to celebrate, we took another day to calmly shoot their wedding portraits in the mountains.
