Happy Cinco de Mayo (to Everyone) and 2 Year Anniversary to Monica and Luis!!!
You hear it all the time, and I’ll say it again here, “TIME FLIES!” Here on the cusp of summer, I find myself recalling the wedding CELEBRATION of Monica and Luis at the The Ranch at San Patricio on May 5, 2012. It was the first time I saw performers on stilts, party masks invade the dance floor, and the first time I saw “La Vibora” (check out video below).
Let me wax poetic for a second, I encourage you to celebrate culture and encourage tolerance, embrace our differences as an opportunity to explore and find beauty, not as a breeding ground for fear and hate! That said let the party begin! Here’s a playlist to help you celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
From an earlier post:
Monica and Luis celebrated their nuptials with a traditional Catholic wedding ceremony at Most Precious Blood Catholic Church and reception at The Ranch at San Patricio. It was a wonderful day to celebrate a wedding. I’d like to share a piece of this wonderful and truly unique moment (at the very least unique to me) with the sequence of the garder belt and bouquet toss. We’re all familiar with the fact that the lucky recipients are allegedly the next in line to marry. What transpired yesterday on Cinco de Mayo 2012 had a wonderful twist – quite literally! Naturally the ladies took their turn first, lined up, held hands and then ran amok across the reception hall “ducking” underneath the outstretched veil of the beautiful bride which was held by her dapper young groom Luis, both were elevated by standing on a chair while supported by their friends.
Then the men’s turn, and in turn, they almost completely knocked over Luis – all in good nature of course. I decided to film this sequence in one continuous shot. Enjoy the moment and be sure to check out a few pictures from the event below, I was there to capture video but couldn’t resist snapping a few photographs, especially when the men in stilts appeared…
Be sure to keep an eye out for Jade and Jamie of Journey Tree Studio who did the wonderful wedding photography! Learn more about them at http://www.journeytreestudio.com/
