Veronica + Estevan | Crestmore Manor Riverside Wedding

Lets throw it back to another wedding from last April shall we? I love weddings of any size, style but you already knew that! What some of you might not know is that Charro weddings hold a special place in this girl’s heart. You see I come from a BIG Mexican family, full of culture and tradition… including the love and practice of its national sport Charreria. Now when Veronica and Estevan contacted me and told me that they were having a big Mexican wedding that embodied all the goodness of a Mexican Charro wedding I was on board! Their day was full of life, love and lots of laughter… the perfect day indeed.

I was so excited to be a part of it. Here are some favorites from their day!

I love this image of Veronica’s nieces trying to get a last minute shot of her before she left for her ceremony.

After their ceremony, we headed to the Crestmore Manor. It was the perfect setting to roam around for some portraits and fun affair afterwards!

Love the details in Veronica’s bouquet.. an image of her grandmother and her jewelry wrapped around.

Now when the bride is a performer, you know its only fair to serenade her new husband. LOVE!

Father/ Daughter and Son/Mother dances just melt my heart. I mean seriously the bond these two have with their parents is so beautiful.

Sneaking a few more portraits during their reception, I love when my couples take those few minutes just to themselves.. and me of course 😉

You know its a fun night when a bouquet/garter toss end up with the groom in the air 🙂

Oh.. and maybe the groom’s clothing becomes optional, curtesy of his buddies. LOL
