The wedding reunion at San Miguel de Allende

Who would say that 10 years after meeting in another country, I would be taking their wedding photos...

The trip to San Miguel de Allende was quite a surprise, it was the meeting point to see those same friends that we have not met for many years, mixed feelings, but above all, a lot of happiness. Seeing all these people again and reliving memories was incredible.

Luzma and Manolo have been inseparable since I met them, it all started as a group of Mexican friends living in NYC, we used to get together every weekend, we had an incredible time (at that time I started taking pictures), we went everywhere, Coney Island, Times Square, Brooklyn…

Long after they became a couple and I have to say that my heart melted when I knew that I would have the fortune to document the wedding of these great people.

One night before the big day we met for the traditional callejoneada in San Miguel de Allende, a couple of drinks and laughs were involved. The wedding day was no exception, from the arrangement to the party. Every person, detail and element of the wedding made an incredible harmony around the wedding, some tequila shots were involved at this part.

Luzma and Manolo are one of the most incredible couples that I have ever documented, they convey a peace that I could not explain. They are synonymous of friendship, laughter, joy and peace.

At the end of all, I am grateful to have met such incredible people throughout my career and to be able to meet them again and in moments of such happiness is priceless.

Special thanks to my friend Mauricio D´Rugama for assisting me as second camera at this special wedding.
