Caryn and Nestor’s wedding day was gorgeous! Despite Hurricane Joaquin’s best efforts to drench the day, the rain held off during their romantic First Look as well as all the bride, groom and wedding party portraits! Yay! I was so thankful and just loved Caryn & Nestor’s “up-for-anything” attitude & overflowing joy in the midst of it! The day’s soft light made the romantic color palette of the wedding really pop too – bonus! Friends and family from across the country (and around the world) celebrated with the newlyweds during their beautiful ceremony and fun reception in the Piedmont Room! It was an incredible day!

Caryn & Nestor – You two are amazing. I adore the way you love and care for each other! Caryn, from the moment you saw Nestor your joy just completely overflowed! And Nestor, your reaction to seeing your bride for the first time was perfection! I adore seeing how your love brings out the best in each of you! I loved being a part of such an incredible day for you both & thank you again for going with the flow and taking pictures in the mist! Hugs! Much love and appreciation – Carrie Joy
