Nicole and Lino’s Puerto Rico Destination Wedding! (1 of 3)

Have you guys been waiting to see this one? Well, it’s such a huge wedding that I’m splitting it into three parts! I was extremely lucky to be able to partake in Nicole and Lino’s super-fun, super-lavish wedding extravaganza down in San Juan, Puerto Rico, over Independence Day weekend, and thank you Emily W. (one of the bridesmaids) for introducing the two of us. You may remember them from this super-sweet Boston Public Garden wedding, which was a ceremony they held for close family and friends. They chose to have their wedding in San Juan because most of Nicole’s family was there and most of Lino’s family was in Miami, so it was a lot more convenient for them! A super, super-big thank you to Emily Ku for coming along with me, girl, I don’t know where I’d be sometimes without you =)

Stay tuned for more!
