Spending the day with Melissa and Emmanuel to celebrate their love was an absolute joy! The festivities started early in the morning at the beautiful and historic Bates Mansion in Tucson with champagne for the ladies and whiskey for the gents while everyone got ready for the celebration! My favorite part was when Emmanuel turned and saw his bride for the first time during their first look. Their passionate embrace brought tears to all of our eyes! Next we headed down to San Martin De Porres Catholic Parish for mass led by Father Juan Carlos. We had gorgeous light for their bridal party photos and walking around downtown Tucson with the happy couple allowed for such romantic images! Then the party continued back at Bates Mansion with friends and family dancing into the night (with glows sticks none the less!)
Melissa and Emmanuel - you are an inspiration. Your strength, compassion, and kindheartedness will lead the way to a lifetime of happiness.
