Luiza and Cleber | “A Blessed Wedding” | Boston Creative Photographer

They met at church and I can call it a match made in heaven. Friends who felt in love. She’s goofy and talkative. He, introverted, but the funny guy that wispers something, makes you laugh out loud while he quietly keeps the pose. They’re both fashion forward, which made them the “perfect models” on their Engament Session. Her voice is stunning; God given. She uses the talent to praise Him. He is an avid Bible student who knows “a little more than that Noah built the Ark”. Well, the beauty  in this all is, they’re both serve the Lord who turned their lives around when it seemed hopeless, and gave each other to cherish.
Is my pleasure to call them my friends, and although I missed walking around in a pretty dress and colorful “bridesmaids pumps”, it was a no brainer swapping the tasks and being their photographer instead. What a privilege!

Luiza and Cleber opted for an intimate affair for their closest family and friends, but the night was full of special moments. The ceremony was perfect. From the brother-of-the-groom opening the celebrations bringing “The Life’s Guide” – the Holy Bible to the pastor; to the father shredding a tear giving away her youngest daughter; the unforgettable words in the sermon; the adorable Bride’s baby niece carrying the cute pillow of rings; and of course, more tears – me included – when the vows were exchanged.
The reception, which took place at the same elegant red room at the Hawthorne Hotel Salem, was also memorable. What to miss when you are in a beautiful place, with delicious food (yes, I still remember the dessert!) and yummy cupcakes, surrounded by your friends having fun in one of the most important days of your life? Nothing!

Exactly! A complete blessing!

They opted for the “First Look”, when the Bride and Groom see each other before the ceremony and I loved it! I could not wait for the moment when Cleber saw Luiza. We took a little time to work on a few creative portraits and she looked so radiant and confident!
Cleber’s reaction to his bride was so sweet ;.) Gotta love First Looks!
 This moment of prayer made my heart melt. A bride is usually nervous, worrying about million things, and this makes all the difference.
I get so excited seeing how family members interact at the day of the wedding. Loving and loyalty sisters that support each other is something I’m always impressed. Keyla and Silvia, looking cute, where there for the baby sister. The only nephew, all shy, came for a big “antie hug” and tried to avoid the camera. The father-of-the-Bride, was overflowing with Joy and enjoying the last minutes before walking the aisle.
Same strong family bond at the groom’s side. Even with most members living across the ocean, they were able to watch it all online and cheer on the only brother close by, in charge of speaking on behalf of them. So emotional and worth witnessing. 
And there it was, a perfect night for a perfect couple!
Lu and Cleber, I can not thank you enough for the opportunity of playing such an important part on your special day. May God bless your marriage.

At least but not last, as all my awesome clients, they have an exclusive website where they can see and share full galleries of images. Here’s the link for Cleber and Luiza’s:
Some tabs are password protected but they won’t mind giving away the “secret code” if you are a close friend.
Enjoy. Be-Blessed!
