Andres & Jayson, Wedding day

This was a different wedding from head to toe. The grooms got dressed together, there was nobody else around. Minutes before they start getting ready, Andres and Jayson did a final walk through around the venue to make sure everything was ready. One last minute change... and Andres was rearranging the chairs for the ceremony-- he is a perfectionist and wants to be involved in everything. Meanwhile Jay was quiet, exuding security and tranquility, attentive to any request from Andres. Finally, it was time to get ready... we made it to their room. There was music in the background. The grooms were having fun... talking, shaving, jumping on the bed and even playing pillow fight games. Andres and Jayson were helping each other get dressed, putting on their cufflinks, bowties, making sure that they look perfect for each other.

They were finally ready... we had a car downstairs waiting to take us on a stroll around the walled city, where I was able to capture some amazing photos of the grooms. Our guide kept suggesting “typical” places where couples photograph; however, I wanted different places, I chose those unique and distinctive corners and colorful doors where I wanted to shoot. It was 3pm and it was hot, and the sun was showering us and the streets of Cartagena de Indias with beautiful light. There were not too many people in the streets, but the ones that where around were not indifferent to us...

After our photoshoot, we returned to Casa Fernandez Madrid, where relatives and friends were waiting for us at the cocktail hour. A guitarist and a girl playing a Flamenco box were entertaining, while the “palanquera” was welcoming guests. Cold and colorful drinks were being served. It was a very unique and fun atmosphere. At sunset, close to 7 pm, it was time for the ceremony. We all went to the courtyard and pool area where the ceremony was performed. Jayson left us speechless with his vows... there was not a dry eye in the house. Including myself, I couldn’t stop the tears from coming down... It was a feeling like no other. Even now, when I look back, I get goose bumps and I smile; there is so much love and happiness in this couple. Andres’ vows were also full of deep meaning and strong emotions and even funny moments, his vows transported us to the past and the future... lots of emotions and so much love.

The ceremony was followed by the reception. Again, it was different, interactive, lots of food... cold and hot food stations with regional and traditional Colombian dishes. Exquisite seafood and ceviche galore. It was almost as if the food became one more guest at the party, that guest that everyone was “talking about”. Yumm yumm! The atmosphere was cozy, the lighting was special, a few days before we had met to plan the lighting color filters, the position of the lights to make everything perfect. All the details were carefully planned, floating candles, candlesticks, rose pedals and a colorful tapas style dinner. The families words left us crying once again. It was great to see the love and support that Andres and Jayson have from their parents and siblings.

It was time to party and we moved to the dance floor located by the pool, the atmosphere was different from the ceremony, guests were ready to have fun. Lots of dancing, jumping, kissing, hugging and loving each other. The DJ did a great job and kept us dancing all night long. But a surprise was yet to emerge: The Crazy Hour: The Barranquilla Carnival arrived with a live band, masks, dancers, shots... At the end of the night, guests ended in the pool... and the party continued. It was an amazing night that will be forever remembered.

Una boda diferente de pies a cabeza. Los novios se vestían juntos, no había nadie más por ahí. Antes de subir a la habitación, Andrés terminó de colocar las sillas de la ceremonia, él está en todos los detalles; Jay, tranquilo, transmite seguridad, atento a cualquier petición de Andrés. Subimos a la habitación: música de fondo, afeitarse, vestirse, mimarse, saltar en la cama, guerra de almohadas, fue bastante divertido y distendido. Bajamos, al coche que nos esperaba para ir a dar el “paseo fotográfico”, como la llaman allí en Cartagena. Una chica y un chófer nos llevaban por la ciudad amurallada, nos sugerían sitios “típicos” donde se suelen hacer las fotos otros novios pero yo les hacía parar en otros distintos, sabía muy bien que puertas y rincones quería fotografiar, algunos otros me los encontré en el camino. Eran las 3 pm, un sol duro caía sobre nosotros y las calles de la hermosa Cartagena de Indias. No había mucha gente en las calles, pero la que había no quedaba indiferente ante nosotros…

Regresamos a la casa Fernández de Madrid, donde nos esperaban los familiares y amigos, en la hora del coctel. Un guitarrista y Una chica con caja Flamenca animaban el ambiente, mientras una “palenquera” daba la bienvenida a los invitados, bebidas refrescantes. Un ambiente singular. Luego, al atardecer, casi las 7 pm, bajamos todos a la zona de la piscina donde se realizaba la ceremonia. Jayson, nos dejó sin palabras y con muchas lágrimas en los ojos con sus votos… en plural, porque lloré emocionada con sus sentimientos. Aún hoy, al recordarlo, me estremezco y sonrío, cuánto amor y felicidad hay en esta pareja. Las Palabras de Andrés, también cargadas de sentimientos y de sonrisas nos trasladaron a momentos vividos y por vivir. Mucha emoción, mucho amor.

La ceremonia fue seguida de una apetitosa e interactiva cena, estaciones fría y caliente, con un marisco exquisito y platos tradicionales de la zona, la comida era un invitado más de la boda, del quien todo el mundo hablaba: hummmmm. El ambiente era acogedor, la iluminación era especial, unos días antes habíamos planificado los filtros de color, la situación de los focos para que todo fuera perfecto. Todos los detalles estaban cuidados, las velas flotantes, los candelabros, pétalos flotantes, una cena buffet colorida donde todos nos movíamos libremente.
Llegó la fiesta y nos trasladamos a la piscina, el ambiente era distinta al de la ceremonia, y el Dj se esmeró en la mezcla de música, pero una sorpresa aún estaba por desvelarse: La hora Loca, Carnaval de Barranquilla; Máscaras, música en directo, bailarines, invitados al agua….. Una fiesta loca y divertida para ser recordada por siempre.
