A Centerville Wedding: Leon and Maritza

We only met Leon and Maritza in March. Yet, it feels like we have known them longer. They are sweet, down to earth people who make our job easy.  And their wedding day was absolutely beautiful. Leon and Maritza have known one another for a long time. They said that everyone's reaction to their engagement was "it's about time" :) And it was time, perfect timing for them. The day was well thought out. And as for their future:  we are excited for them. I have a feeling that together, they will do great things in this world.

There is also something wonderful for us, as photographers, when we get to experience another culture. They had a beautiful mass at church in Durham. And the entire ceremony was in spanish. This made our job different and I actually felt like it made us capture things better. Instead of listening we watched and we photographed. It pushed us as artists. It made me see how strong of a love these two share.

So thank you Maritza and Leon for being you. For letting us be a part of such a powerful wedding day. We are so honored and grateful beyond words.

Much Love, K and K

Once again, I cannot tell you how much I LOVE working with Ashley at the Powder Room. She Rocks!

Cambray Rose Florist did an incredible job with the floral design

Leon, you are so awesome! This little flower girl had the right idea... We all must stay hydrated and well fed on a wedding day :)

Maritza looked stunning. Just love her!

The first look

Maritza, you are beautiful!

We then moved to Durham for the ceremony at Saint James Catholic Church.

The details for the day were stunning. I even loved the hair designs that were created by the girls at Satori.

We wanted to take a few more portraits before the grand entrance into the reception.

The Reception was just perfect and casual and down to earth.

Loved that there was a Mariachi band as well.

Lots of cute kiddos...

And toasts... This man came from Mexico to share in the celebration and he was a whole lot of fun!

And of course some sweet dancing shared by the bride and groom to end a long, but wonderful day!
