The world we live in is so small! I had the pleasure of planning the wedding of my childhood neighbor. When I was about 8 years old, I moved away from the house I was born and raised in to another part of town and our neighbors were amazing! My neighbor's mother took care of me as a child and I referred to her as my "abuela". When we moved away life took it's own course and everyone went there separate ways with just a short amount of communication! I was happy she found me on Face book and became a fan on my business page and I remember clearly asking her... "Is this Annette that I grew up with?" and, she replied "yes" well a few months later she and I discussed her wedding and I was happy to be a part of such a gorgeous day! The day of her wedding I was overwhelmed with excitement to see all those that watched me grow and considered my extended family!
Amazing how small our world is right?
Annette was such a great bride and knew exactly what she wanted and had the vision of her day down to the tea. I was happy that I was able to assist her in bringing that vision to a reality!
During our planning we had a few surprises lined up for her husband Luis including the special appearance of UM mascot "Sebastian the Ubis" He was completely floored when we brought him in.
I had a great time during this wedding and below are a few great shots taken by the talented "Alain Martinez"...
Thanks Annette and Luis for allowing me to be a part of the most important day of your lives. Wishing you both a lifetime of pure bliss!
