Deidra and Juan's wedding day was just perfect! Of course...we expected nothing less. We had the chance to spend a few hours with Deidra and Juan several months ago for their engagement session. It was two hours of huge smiles and lots of laughs...and that was just Elena and I. We had such a great time with Deidra and Juan and (thankfully) they laughed and smiled throughout their engagement session, too. We were excited to see this super nice couple again on their wedding day. When we saw them the first time on the big day, they both greeted us like old friends. What a great way to start the day!
Deidra and Juan had a beautiful ceremony at St. Albert the Great Catholic Church. When we arrived at the church, everyone was so quiet and almost serious. Deidra...Juan...family...guests...everyone was really quiet. Right before the ceremony started, I told Elena, "Everyone is so focused and serious. I hope their reception is fun." After the ceremony, we spent a few minutes taking pictures of family and then we made our way over to the reception venue.
The Mansfield is such a cool, cool place! The view is amazing!!! The hall is so neat and eclectic. Deidra and Juan really made a great decision when they chose their venue. Before the reception started, we were able to spend a few minutes taking pictures of Deidra and Juan. They are so cute together! We found lots of really great places to take pictures. It took us no time at all to have a great collection of photos. We finished up with Deidra and Juan's pictures and it was time for them to be announced into the reception.
So, back to my "I hope their reception is fun" comment. I could not have been more wrong!!!! From the moment Deidra and Juan were announced in the reception (and really from the moment Juan showed off his dance moves), their party was non-stop fun! People sang and danced and laughed all night long. We pulled Deidra and Juan out for a few minutes to take some sunset pictures. They were blessed with one of the most beautiful sunsets we've seen. But, we were able to do more than just bride and groom sunset pictures. The way it all worked out, we were able to take pictures of Deidra and Juan with many of their guests in front of that amazing sunset! It was so awesome to have the opportunity to take so many great pictures for them.
Deidra and Juan, ya'll are such a sweet couple. Elena and I loved spending time with ya'll and are so happy for you both. We wish you many, many years of love!
