This past weekend I had an unbelievable time photographing Paula & David’s destination wedding in Cartagena Colombia. It was awesome to see their dream wedding become a reality. After many months of planning together with their closest friends and family they said their vows and exchanged rings at Santo Toribio de Mogrovejo in the center of Cartagena’s old city. Following the ceremony Paula, David and all of their guests took a stroll through the old city to the sounds of live music. We ended the walk at Casa Quero where the music and dancing continued till sunrise!
Following the Vallenato at 1 AM the dancing really kicked into high gear with the the start of ‘La Hora Loca’ (Crazy Hour) a non-stop hour of fast paced, high energy carnival like atmosphere. It was awesome!
Paula & David thank you for making us a part of your wedding and best of all for making Becker, Rodrigo and I feel at home. And finally major thanks to Becker and Rodrigo for coming out to Cartagena with me for this awesome wedding. I am grateful for la boda de Paula y David and looking forward to my next wedding in Cartagena in a few weeks.
