Javier and Juana were my first wedding of 2010 and I was so excited to capture their special day. I knew from spending time with them during their engagement session that their wedding would be fun, stylish and of course, that they would shine in front of the camera. Javier and Juana did not disappoint.

So, with that in mind- check out their awesome pics and start posting!! Thanks Javier and Juana for starting off 2010 in style!
I met up with the bride early Saturday morning at Bellisima Salon where she started getting ready.
I love these images of her. She was beaming the entire time!
Then we headed over to the stunning Terrace Hotel, where Juana slipped into her beautiful dress amidst the most glorious sunlight you have ever seen!
Loved all of these details!
Juana was waiting on her dad to walk her down the aisle when I noticed this burst of light just above the parking garage by Hollis Gardens, where Javier was anxiously awaiting her arrival. It was just stunning!
The big moment… Javier spotting his bride for the first time.
I couldn’t resist sharing this image from the ceremony. It’s one of my favorites!
This one is too!
Mr. and Mrs. Rosado! Javier stopped as they walked back down the aisle and embraced his wife. What a super sweet moment.
Beautiful bouquet created at Flower’s by Edith.
What a gorgeous bride.
Javier, still modeling away!
I am in love with the expressions in this image. Simple. Fun. Happy!
While walking around after the ceremony, Javier told us he had spotted a cool place to take some images. (I LOVE it when the groom is this involved.) The fire station was such a great idea and after having some fun with their red door and garages, we walked around the corner to spot a fireman outside. With a grin I looked over at the bride and groom and asked if we might be able to take some pictures on one of their engines. He was thrilled to help and drove one right outside for us to use! What a cool surprise!
Now this is how to have some fun with your couple shots!
The bride and groom also requested a “sign” picture and this one just makes me smile!
Finally, it was on to the reception. Here are a few fun details from the evening. I couldn’t resist Table #10, since it was the very beginning of the new year!
Such a sweet first dance!
Loved these centerpieces and the rings hanging from them.
The perfect ending to a perfect day.
