Yaleve & Jared’s wedding honestly felt like spending time with good friends. I adore this couple so much, and their families could not have been any more welcoming and kind! Yaleve’s mom even handmade me a gift for my baby on the way! I loved every single second that we got to celebrate this bride and groom and their love.
The grounds of the Salt Lake Temple were just beautiful as Yaleve & Jared exited the temple for the first time as husband and wife. After a very cold and rainy spring, it was so lovely to see the sun shining! The two of them were all smiles as they were surrounded by well-wishers. Their family members and bridal party were so sweet and obviously thrilled for the happy couple. Yaleve was the most gorgeous bride! I loved the vibrant summery colors she chose for her bouquet.
I’ve cried at every single wedding I’ve ever photographed, and this one was no exception. That moment came as Jared played the most beautiful piano piece he had written himself for his bride as a gift on their wedding day. I wasn’t the only one shedding some tears. The music was so moving. What a talented groom!
The entertainment didn’t stop there! Yaleve & Jared’s reception felt like a dance concert and wedding reception all in one. The bride and her father performed an amazing dance together! Her sister and cousins joined Yaleve in an awesome choreographed routine that was so fun to watch. Those Puerto Ricans sure know how to have a party! Their guests were dancing the night away, and I was just happy to be there for the show.
The bride and groom exited the church to a shower of bubbles and were off on their Hawaiian honeymoon!
Congratulations, Yaleve & Jared! I know the two of you are going to live happily ever after! Thank you for the honor of being a part of your day.
