Ana Maria and Ryan are the sweetest couple! I knew after meeting them for our engagement session
in downtown Annapolis, the wedding at Renditions Golf Course was going to be a joy to photograph.
The bride’s family and friends traveled all the way from Columbia, South America to witness her and Ryan exchange vows. The Mother of the bride even created all the floral arrangements! The groom’s brothers and father were so happy for the couple and beaming with pride. The love that was present was truly inspirational.
Both Ana and Ryan were surrounded by their immediate families and closest friends while preparing for the wedding day. Ana Maria’s parents gave her a special blessing when we arrived at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church for the ceremony. Maria was there to capture it all while I set up for the processional.
It was a very cold, windy day, and I give props to the couple and wedding party for braving the elements for outdoor portraits. We even took golf carts through Renditions to the iconic stone bridge for portraits. I Love how they turned out! I was especially grateful to have our associate photographer, Maria
, with me that day. Not only is she a phenomenal photographer, but she is fluent in both English and Spanish and was able to translate. The DJ, Jorge Valverde, with JLeon Productions helped to translate speeches as well and kept the dance floor packed all night. It was awesome! I am in awe of those who can salsa and loved watching the guests have a great time dancing!
There was no shortage of hugs, kisses, laughs and blessings. Couples like Ana and Ryan remind me of what a gift it is to be in the presence of true love. I never want to take for granted the gifts we have each day when we are surrounded by love. Congratulations!
