McLoone’s Pier House Wedding | Marcel & Erika

There is something to be said when you are the person documenting a friend’s wedding. I always feel a sense of joy and happiness for each of my bride and grooms, but that feeling is doubled when it’s someone I know.

Erika was the definition of a blushing bride. The moment I walked into Erika’s suite, she wore the most radiant smile I’ve ever seen. But then everything about Erika is radiant — her smile, her laugh, her heart. There’s no mystery why Marcel asked Erika to marry him 2 years ago on Miami beach.

When the time came for Marcel to see his beautiful bride, he did everything to calm his breathing. He had no doubt in his mind that Erika would be anything less than beautiful, but when he turned around to see her for the first time, he was breathless. No words can express how he felt that moment — making it by far the best First Look I’ve ever seen in my life.

Marcel and Erika had their dream wedding at the beautiful McLoone’s Pier House. Surrounded by friends and family Marcel cited his vowels in Spanish just for Erika, promising to forever love and cherish her until the end of time.

Marcel and Erika, I can not thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of such a beautiful and important day. You two were nothing but amazing! I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in Maui! Te amo mucho!
