The weather report called for rain. As we drove to the venue, it was raining harder than we had seen in years, but we were prepared. We had bought theses adorable clear umbrellas and had poses ready to use them. We were looking for every overhang and awning at the resort. We were optimistic though, the weather man said by two o’clock, the time the ceremony would end, the rain should clear. We walked into the room of a very nervous bride, but we reassured her the day, what ever the weather, would be perfect. Umbrellas in hand, we headed to the Carmel Mission. Doing everything we could to keep Maira dry, the ceremony started without a hitch, and boy was she stunning!
Inside the mission was a bit dark. The windows were stain glass so it was deceiving of the weather outside. The rush of excitement as they sealed their vows with a kiss, the chuck back doors swung open to let the glorious sun beam come in. Hallelujah! The light radiated all the way to Maira and Jose and their smiles illuminated the room. We covered the mission grounds capturing the love between these two and then headed off to the celebration at Quail Lodge. So enough chitter chatter… let’s move on to the images! We felt so honored to be a part of this day! Celebrating alongside these two families was just an awesome experience and we loved every minute of it!! Congratulation Jose and Maira!!!
