For Letty and Steve’s wedding we headed back to one of our favorite venues, Villa DeZecheo to photograph their destination wedding in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Villa DeZecheo is a wonderful venue because of its beautifully manicured gardens and amazing beachfront location. For this wedding the ceremony was set up on the large green lawn, it is a beautiful spot for a ceremony. The light right before sunset is gorgeous as it filters through the trees, for wedding photographers in the tropics getting to photograph a ceremony in a patch of soft filtered light always feels like hitting the jackpot.
We’ve been photographing weddings for eight years and as wedding photographers in Puerto Rico we see all different kinds of ceremonies and families being united. For Letty and Steve’s wedding Rev. Gregory Ruiz had everyone join hands and pray before leading a beautiful wedding ceremony. For Letty and Steve this was both of their second marriages. Letty has four children and Steve has two so their wedding was more about their two families becoming one than anything else. It was a beautiful ceremony that almost brought me to tears! The Reverend even incorporated the kids into the ceremony by having each of them say “I do” to their families becoming married together. There were so many beautiful details and decorations at this wedding but the inclusion of the children into the ceremony is what really made this wedding stand out. Love and family really are the most important things we photograph on wedding day.
We were honored that The Huffington Post chose to publish this photograph of Letty and Steve in front of the Ceiba tree in the front yard of Villa DeZecheo. The Ceiba is a sacred and revered tree in Puerto Rico and through out the Americas. Check out their real weddings blog Gregs photo is #15 on the list.
