Happy Wedding at Hacienda Siesta Alegre


If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I absolutely adore outdoor weddings. When Michelle & Ricardo told me they had chosen Hacienda Siesta Alegre for their day, I knew I’d enjoy shooting their day. Even more so when we shot their engagement session and I got to know more of them. Michelle and Ricardo, who share their passion for animals (both working as veterinary surgeons) also share profound love for each other. By the time I arrived to the villa to meet the radiant bride, I could already feel the excitement in anticipation to their first look. Ricardo waited for his bride at the bougainvillea covered bridge in the hacienda, and as Michelle stepped closer the inevitable happy tears happened (myself included). Their first look turned out to be one of the cutest I’ve ever captured. The groom’s amazement and the bride’s joy couldn’t be more evident. After a heartfelt embrace (and more than a few kisses), Michelle and Ricardo said ‘I do’ at their blissful ceremony. A short protocol of speeches from family and friends followed their first dance until the party started by nightfall, which included an extra cake cutting for the father of the bride. Their wedding occured as what you imagine perfect to be like — no stress — everyone focused in what mattered: their happy union.
