The guest sending off the bride and groom with sparklers in hand. The bride and groom enjoying the candle lit night at Laguna Gloria.

This was one of the most beautiful ceremonies ever seen at the Contemporary Art Museum (The Laguna Gloria). Rebecca and Carlos were married in the evening surrounded by candles. Their wedding brought guest from all over the world to celebrate the union of two experienced travelers, having both lived in Philadelphia, Miami, Paris, Mexico City and Singapore. The couple started falling in love on their first trip together in Guatemala.  Carlos even planned a trip to the Atacama Desert, in the northern part of Chile, to propose to Rebecca. The bride and groom created the perfect blend of food, atmosphere and culture for their worldly friends and family. Dinner was served in a true latin style, dinning outdoors under the stars and served in courses. I photographed this wedding 7 months pregnant, so  very special thanks to my team, Matt Johnson and Trish Finfer for all their help.
