Just a couple of weeks after Louisa and Matias’s stunning Portuguese engagement session, I met back up with them in Tennessee for their stormy, southern wedding! The day was beautiful. Storms were blowing in and out, making the trees dance and the clouds race, and covering the property in beautiful shadows and rays of sunlight. Just before the ceremony, we had enough sunlight for a few gorgeous bridal portraits and some giggles with the bridesmaids!
This ceremony was special for a dozen reasons, one being that it was officiated by Matias’s father, a pastor from Santiago, Chile. So the entire ceremony was in Spanish, with some Portuguese/English worship, and a Facebook group translator, whispering the English through everyone’s small headphones. Louisa translated her vows to Matias into Spanish while the girls were still getting ready, and Matias surprised her with a song for his vows. *Cue the tears.
The Urreas decided to celebrate with friends and family by offering an open mic reception, instead of a dance floor. The musical Schlener siblings serenaded the crowd after the couple’s “first song”, and the floor was open for the rest of the guests. Such a sweet idea, sweet couple, sweet evening.
With that, here are some of my favorites from Louisa and Matias’s wedding! Congratulations, you two!!
Be sure to look at their coastal engagement session!
