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

Before reading this post, make sure you’ve checked out part 1 and part 2 of this amazing Puerto Rican wedding!

All the hard work that went into this wedding is just jaw-dropping amazing! The entire wedding reception was held indoors to keep everyone cool on this hot summer day.

Thank you, thank you so much to the families for trusting me with your memories. This was an experience that I never thought could happen to me – my very first destination wedding as a wedding photographer. Nicole and Lino, whenever I look at the photos of you two, I know that you guys share something special. I wish you two nothing but the sweetest life together for years to come. Thank you for letting me be a part of it!

Susan Berman After reading your blog it makes me think that sometimes we don’t really appreciate what we really have. On a side note I really would really appreciate your ideas on the best place for my friendto go for a honeymoon. Thoughts?
