The first time I met Cristina and Joel in person was in Amsterdam. They currently live there and I happened to be there at a speaking engagement so we had lunch. It was such an easy lunch and I felt like I had been friends with them for years. That really made the difference on their wedding in my opinion. They way they welcome and love people is astounding. It was a glorious wedding.
Here is a run down of Cristina and Joel’s story:
She is from Seville, Spain
He is from Kansas
They met in Malaysia
They now live in Amsterdam
They had a fantastic wedding in Kansas City with folks from all over the world in attendance
There was moon light, dancing, ducks, a tent, one of the best first dances I have seen, amazing speeches, and candy.
Plus I found out I shoot better when I have a glass or two of mid afternoon sangria from La Bodega.

I love this photo of Cristina with her dad and daughter right before leaving for the ceremony.
Joel says hello to his daughter upon seeing her at the church.
Cristina and her dad wait in the limo for the call to head down the aisle. I love how he was squeezing her hand to tightly.
