I could not help but to share this timeless, elegant, classic wedding with everyone here on my blog. Patricia and Javier, currently living in New York, wanted to make their wedding day special by having their wedding back home in Chicago. Planning a wedding can be quite a challenge. To do a destination one requires a bit more effort. But they pulled it off effortlessly. Many guests from all over the world flew into Chicago that weekend in May to celebrate the union of Patty & Javier at a beautiful intimate venue in The Waldorf Astoria Chicago. Patty and Javier spent a great deal of time planning out every detail of the event. But on their wedding day, they just enjoyed the special moment they got to spend with each other and their guests. It was a picture perfect wedding. We managed to capture over 1000+ images that day. Although I would love to share every single one of them with you, I will do my best to capture the essence of their day with these 25+ images on this blog. I hope you enjoy perusing through these images. Congratulations Patty & Javier! It was truly an honor to capture these moments for you guys and to have spent the day with you.

I’m also honored to know that this wedding will be featured in the upcoming issue of the Chicago Social Bride wedding publication.

Destination Wedding in Palm Beach, Aruba: Nate & Peggy

April 26th, 2010

The wedding season officially started for 2010. And not a bad way to start at all. It started way down south – as close as you can get down to South America without actually getting there. When I got the final confirmation last year from Nate & Peggy that I was going to be their […]

 

The wedding season officially started for 2010. And not a bad way to start at all. It started way down south – as close as you can get down to South America without actually getting there. When I got the final confirmation last year from Nate & Peggy that I was going to be their wedding photographer in Palm Beach, Aruba, the first thing I did was get up from my chair and started singing the song by the Beach Boys: “Aruba, Jamaica, Oooh I wanna take ya…” I knew this wedding was going to be a fun one because I got to spend some time with Nate & Peggy last month photographing their engagement session in New York City. I loved their personality, energy and their love for photography. And they also loved eating good food (Started our session by eating Japanese ramun noodle for lunch)!! So I knew right there and than that we were going to get along just fine.

You could not ask for a better wedding. Five days under the Aruba sky. Friendly Arubans greeted you with their warmth and hospitality. Amazing seafood. Breath-taking snorkeling sites. Driving around the island during our photoshoot. Getting to know Nate & Peggy along with their close family & friends – everything was a delightful. Thank you so much for allowing us to capture your wedding day and spend the weekend with you guys. Weddings like this reminds us how blessed we are as wedding photographers to call this our vocation (or was it vacation)?!?! 🙂

The ceremony & the reception took place at the beautiful Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa in Palm Beach Aruba. Here are some images that highlight the weekend. I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I had fun editing and putting them together. Big thanks to Kenny Nakai for being my wingman for this wedding.

Peggy & Nate’s New York Engagement Session

Now that WPPI is over, I have been anxiously waiting for this year’s weddings to start. Shortly after the convention, I flew out to the east coast to start my shooting season. Peggy & Nate are a cute couple from Boston area and I have been fortunate to photograph their wedding in Aruba next month. They wanted to do their engagement session in NYC so I gladly flew out to do so. New York is one of my favorite locations to shoot. We started out meeting by having lunch together and got to know each other little bit better. I had met Nate already before at a previous wedding in Chicago (David & Yeena) but this was my first time meeting Peggy. From the first hug I could tell that Peggy is a sweet girl and that it was going to be fun photographing them together. My good friend and great photographer Ahmet Ze from New Jersey came to give me a hand that day. Peggy brought one of her bridesmaid Sharon give her a hand. Together we made a great team and it was a fun day of shooting in New York City. Here are some images from the shoot:
