When I first met with Xiomara she had plans for an extravagant and highly produced wedding to be held in Chicago. However, amid the whirlwind of planning her wedding, she paused and realized that what she and her finance truly wanted was something completely different then originally thought. They were opting out for a small intimate wedding along the shoreline of Fort Story encompassed by the presence of the Cape Henry Lighthouses. In Xiomara and Eric's case, less was more.
With her new perspective Xiomara was concerned that I might not be interested in documenting her big day. I assured her that despite the size or location of her wedding I would be more than happy to be provide the photographic coverage that fit her vision. After reassuring her we moved forward and went over the details.
What we were both really excited about was planning the part of her wedding shoot when she and Eric would ride away on his Harley! The bike was instrumental in their relationship, their first experience of falling in love started on that bike. In fact, Xiomara even spoke about the motorcycle in her speech during their ceremony.
In the end, just like a scene right out of a Hollywood romance, Xiomara and Eric rode off into the sunset down a wooded strip of blacktop. Here's to living happily ever after, all the best to both of you!
