Moving to Germany: T-54 Days – My Cousin’s Wedding

This weekend was the wedding of my cousin Beto to his wonderful girlfriend (and now wife) Cassie.   They met  one night when Cassie almost barreled into my other cousin (Beto’s older brother) Milton in a bar in Indianapolis.   Milton then brought Cassie over to introduce her to  the group and literally the rest is history.  The whole ceremony was beautiful and elegant.  There was a lot of dancing, drinking, and tears of joy.

We were worried that we would be late but fortunately that was not the case so we had time to do a few selfies.  Then my Tia (mother of the groom) and the mother of the bride went up to light the candles for the Unity Candle in the ceremony:

Soon the music started and my cousin Beto came out with Father Bob:

Then the moment of the Bride.  I remember thinking how beautiful and happy Cassie looked and all of a sudden I started to get teary eyed!

Here Comes the Bride

The ceremony was beautiful.  I was asked to perform one of the readings.  It was an honor.  Then before we knew it, the ceremony ended and they were man and wife!

Yay!!
Yay!!

We had a few hours between the ceremony and the reception so we went home to grab a quick bite to eat.  Then it was back downtown to the Sheraton where I took advantage of the free wine all night 😉 I love going to latin weddings because of the dancing and seeing family that do not live nearby:

  1. Great pics. We have started lifewall.org as a place where people can celebrated moments which are historical in life and have them immortalized on a global, virtual, eternal graffiti wall. We believe weddings are one such moment and believe photographers like yourself can help us create this wall of human history by giving your clients a chance to immortalize the day with one of your pictures. Heres a video showing how to load a birth tile for our global birth registry, the process is similar. Thanks… http://vimeo.com/69120674
