Catherine and Rafael’s Quincy MA Wedding

When I think about Catherine and Rafael’s wedding, the words “fun, red lipstick, true love, preciousness, and dance party” all come to mind. That should be enough to get you excited for the photos I would think!

The love that Catherine and Rafael have for one another is that kind that you can feel. It makes you want to hug your own spouse closer and cherish your own relationship. It is a testament and I loved witness it become marriage. I got to be with Catherine and her father as they waited to walk down the aisle, and it’s moments like that I feel like my privilege on a wedding day is precious. It was so touching as the prayed together moments before she was to become a wife. When Rafael saw her for the first time, the room was electric. It was truly one of wedding days filled with magic. With a wedding party of 20, we had quite the blast hanging out with all of them on the beach and they were just plain fun! After prayers and toasts, tears of joy and formal dances, the party continued into the night… the dance floor literally bouncing up and down from the jumping. When Katy Perry came on everybody screamed and the dance party was on. These are my kind of people!

Everything about this wedding was on point from Catherine’s dress (that leopard print cardigan, though!) to the bridesmaids’ dresses, the suits the guys wore, the food, the music, and the attempt on Kevin’s life. Perf. Totes perf.
