Hi, I’ve got a great wedding to share with you! The historic Coral Gables Congregational Church was the setting for the wedding of my son, Ryan to his beloved Jennifer, which was followed by a wild wedding reception at the Coral Gables Hyatt.
The internet is an amazing matchmaker…I meet so many couples that have met on EHarmony, Match, Plenty of Fish, JDate, Date My Pet…Yeah I know that last one many of you may not have heard of…but that’s how Ryan met Jennifer…she blew him a virtual kiss and he took it from there.
For twenty eight years I have been a Miami wedding photographer. I have photographed over a thousand first looks, over a thousand first kisses as husband & wife, first dances and countless memorable moments. For each of those weddings, I have been intrigued by relationships, the nuances between a bride and groom…between parents and their children. Now it was my turn, not only was I the Father of the Groom, I was also the Best Man!
If you have ever been the parents of the Bride/Groom…the experience in the months leading up to that day and the wedding day itself is nothing short of surreal! It is a rollercoaster of emotions that I wish I could ride over and over again. I remember my thoughts that day…I thought about this amazing young man that not too long ago was just a little boy…wanting the day to be perfect for both of them, falling in love with Jennifer as her eyes danced with love during promises made…catching Ryan playing with the precious metal that signifies the deed done…now a husband. I can’t recall seeing him dance before this day…but he danced like nobody was watching…and at the end of the night wondering how this day flew by so fast!
My very own team of Miami’s finest wedding photographers–Ricardo Aguiar and Stella Hernandez along with my very close friend, Andrew Duany were there throughout the day to capture many amazing moments. Thank you!
A special thanks to Vince and Paul of Broadway Video for documenting moment after moment for my family. I have had a relationship with Vince and Broadway Video for over 24 years now…he’s an amazing video artist…and an incredible friend! By the way, both Ryan and Vince are Florida Gators and Jennifer had Ana Paz create a special Gator Groom’s cake that truly took Ryan by surprise.
