Every wedding is special for a photographer, since you are capturing one of the biggest moments of someone’s life. However, this wedding was particularly special for me as I was capturing the wedding of one of my oldest and dearest friends, Brandy. She and her fiancé, Keith, met at work in 2006 and always had a wonderful working relationship. After a couple of years of great chemistry in the office, they decided to see if they would have the same chemistry outside of the office. And lucky for them, they did! Then over Christmas 2012 Keith took Brandy to New York City for a vacation and surprised her by proposing in Central Park. Talk about the perfect Christmas present!
They chose to meet their closest friends and family in Mexico to say their vows at an intimate ceremony over looking the ocean at the stunning Sunset Da Mona Lisa in Cabo San Lucas, after which guests were treated to an ocean side cocktail hour featuring live music from a mariachi band. And when it came time for dinner, guests just had a few steps to walk to savor a three course Italian dinner with panoramic views of the ocean and coast line. The perfect end to an amazing day in Mexico!
Brandy, you once said to me Zach was “Brandy approved”, and so I say to you, Keith is very much “Leah approved”!
Of course I had to ask the mariachi band if we could borrow their sombreros for a little fun before sunset!
