“To those who love and are loved, know that life’s true riches lie in the moments spent with family and friends.”

This is a quote from Lisette and Angel’s note to their family, which was included in the program from their wedding ceremony at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Richmond, Va. It is a perfect representation of this beautiful couple and their celebration. When Lisette and I first met to talk about the wedding, she teared up while describing Angel and their relationship. She spoke about how they met in college, were separated by his deployment to Iraq, grad school, careers, but how they were now finally in the same place at just the right time. She described him as strong and tough on the outside, but as someone who would play barbies with her nieces and who valued her family as his own. This focus on family, commitment and love was everywhere on Angel and Lisette’s wedding day. From a suite full of mothers, sisters, aunts and cousins getting ready right alongside the bride, to touches and details like Lisette’s grandmother’s lace and black and white family photographs placed throughout the reception. With Lisette’s Cuban family and Angel’s Puerto Rican family joining, an amazing Afro-Cuban salsa band was a must and guests didn’t disappoint with their salsa moves. The traditional Catholic ceremony meant an earlier end to the festivities and warm golden light to send Angel and Lisette off with. Following are my favorites from the day: enjoy!

Eva, You’ve done a fantastic job on this couple, as you’ve explained how they came together after his deployment, etc. The pictures of the cathedral are just gorgeous! I’m partial to Jackie and her Ben, but I’m glad I took the time to view this lovely couple and their families sharing in their happiness. Good job! Sue Abrams

Mrs. Abrams, thank you so much for your comments! I’m partial to Jackie and Ben too!
