I was contacted for this wedding barely a month before the date. They wanted to get married on their anniversary, but it was soon.
So, with the help of the Aracely's amazingly organized sister, they put together a beautiful wedding with only a few weeks, proving that it can be done!
They chose a great location with the Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens, a 19th century home that's been converted to a museum and is available for events. It makes an incredible backdrop.
Aracely got dressed in the Sanguinetti House's Bridal Suite, a lovely little room with lots of great vintage details. Her hair was already done, and her sister/maid of honor/de facto wedding planner did her makeup by the window.
The ceremony was conducted by Nicole Alonzo. At one point, family and friends were invited to gather round the couple as they exchanged vows.
MARRIED! I love Richard's reaction to being officially married SO MUCH.
Guests had the choice of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry cake. Parent dances followed the first dance, and the dance floor was hopping. At one point, I pulled Richard and Aracely away for a few minutes for night portraits along the historic street.
