Adam and Pami

"I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you"
-- lifehouse


It was an unforgettable weekend. Perfect, 80 degree weather. Wonderful food. Brilliant music! Much laughter and pure joy. Tears of elation, as well as tears of "I'm going to miss you."

Pami of Juarez married Adam of Maryland. And their story is so emotional - the long-distance relationship, the idea of leaving all she's ever known and moving to Maryland, falling hard for each other, saying good-bye to her home and literally moving on in life with her husband. It was a whirlwind! But wedding day was just outstanding. It was such a celebration, truly declaring "Look, come and see what God has done!"


Pami and her 13-year-old sister, Lynda, are very close. Surprisingly close in this day and age. Lynda adores Pami. They have an incredible bond! Lynda was just enamored as Pami put on her wedding gown, in the bedroom these two have shared for years :D So special!

I just love this picture. Hahah it makes me smile :) Pami was brushing her teeth and I don't know why I find it so awesome!

Another sweet moment in the day was when Pami put her veil on. Oh, the room was silenced and time seemed to evaporate. Wow. You could almost physically feel their emotions.

She is breath-taking, head-turning, room-stopping-inly beautiful!

It was complete FUN to photograph her.

I love the look of this one - it could almost be her great-grandma or something!

Oh boy, so pretty....

This one is one of my all-time favorites!


I love that God decided to make light gorgeous. And girls. It's such a great combination!

This was the amazing light we had as Pami walked into the church. You couldn't handpick better light!

There are more ceremony pictures in the slideshow, but I just adore this one. Can you be any happier?

Oh. Hold on... look at this post-kiss-face :D I guess you can be happier ;D

I love a good, vintage black and white!

Now, the sun had long gone down when it was time for their pictures, so I had to get creative!



Aw :)

They are great, aren't they? Oh so great!

Mmmm, vury vury romantic ;D



Ok, and onto the dance floor! Let me tell you, receptions in Mexico are off the hook! Not only is the dancing incredible, everyone knows how to do it - well!

The reception venue was like the garden of a palace in Spain. It was jaw-dropping!

Awww - the daddy/daughter dance!

The mariachi band was fabulous!!!!

First Adam and Pami were spectators....

.... but then they had to get up and dance :)


Here is the show! Congratulations Adam and Pami! Have an amazing honeymoon!!!
And special thanks to Ana for shooting with me! Love you ;D
ps. I had to include this shot from the rehearsal dinner, where they taught all the "gringo's" how to salsa. It was soooo funny! And I even got to learn!
