I remember when I first met Cristina. She was our newest hire at the design agency I work at and she was all smiles. Too many smiles. I was like, “this can’t be real, it’s like a blazing ball of sunshine collided with a rainbow unicorn and out popped this girl.” Turns out it was real. I’ve witnessed, time and time again, Cristina’s massive heart, grace, loyalty and enthusiasm for her friends, family and especially Josh. She’s the first person to offer encouragement when times gets tough, the first to rave about her dad’s doting heart and the first to suggest a karaoke night out.

Cristina & Josh’s wedding was such a testament to these relationships they’ve both invested in. Her family’s homemade Limon Cello, Alex’s opera voice gracing the ceremony, the family style dinner, the epic rap toast, the embroidered messages, the first look – all pieces carefully chosen to create moments with those most near and dear to them. Enjoy reliving these treasured moments you two, it was a joy to capture them.
