Where was Sebastian? Melissa & Xavier get married!

We have had a lot of great South Florida weddings this year and no doubt Melissa & Xavier’s wedding was a winner!

After their engagement session, I was so looking forward to this wedding on many levels. For me the engagement portrait session is an opportunity to connect with my couples, get a sense of who they are on a deeper level and our engagement session no doubt was a wonderful experience.

Miami Wedding PhotographyThis wedding had everything but a visit from Sebastian the Ibis…from the “Getting Ready” moment at Melissa’s parents home with Mom, Dad and Melissa’s fabulous bridesmaids, to the beautiful, spiritual wedding ceremony at St Brendan Catholic Church in Miami and a rousing and wild wedding reception at the historic Alfred I DUPont Building in Downtown Miami…it was an amazing day!

It was a very special moment to see how excited she was to see her grandson and his new bride. It is a tender moment like this that makes me so happy to be a wedding photographer. To be a part of a a new beginning in the life of a couple in love is a great feeling.

Miami Wedding PhotographySome notes about the detail images above: As a child, I remember coming to the Dupont Building with my Dad…back then it was a bank. In the first image, they chose images from their engagement session to decorate the place-card/gift table. In the center bottom image, Melissa & Xavier honor marriage with wedding photos of parents and grandparents displayed.
