Monique and Ernie FINALLY TIED THE KNOT! We met as strangers over a year ago and instantly hit it off. A few months pass by and it’s time for their engagement shoot… and I have never been more pleasantly surprised by STYLE as I was that September day! Bow tie, coral necklace, tutu skirt, striped top, and 2 gigantic smiles…. I was in photographer heaven!
Since then, M&E have continued to pleasantly surprise us with their cute cards in the mail, sweet comments on this blog, and keeping up with us on Facebook! We love how much they love each other.
Monique- You’re a gorgeous woman and I can’t thank you enough for so graciously being my walking talking billboard! You’re the BEST! I am so blessed to have witness you and your handsome Ernie tie the knot and officially become one! Steve and I wish you the best of everything!!! We really had so much fun laughing and loving with you guys! Please call us when you get the most stylish baby bump ever imaginable!
ABOUT THEIR WEDDING:
Ernie and his groomsmen wore custom Barongs which are traditional for Filipino weddings! He was very proud to represent his culture! They wed in a church with a traditional Catholic ceremony and had the best party ever at their Edwards Mansion reception! It was such a fun day!
WEDDING DAY HIGHLIGHTS:
1- Monique running from the parking lot to her hiding room before the ceremony. I’m not kidding… she literally sprinted!
2- Monique dropping the ring and shocking the priest.
3- Arnie, Ernie’s twin brother and best man, SPLITTING HIS PANTS RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE during an awesome toe-touch for my camera. Yeah, let’s just say there are reasons why I can’t share that picture….. HAHA!!!
4- Monique & Ernie never leaving the dance floor. I think Monique was dancing before they were even announced into the reception. Gosh, I love her.
5- Monique pitching her bouquet in her baseball cap veil. (You’ll see…)
LOVE YOU BOTH! Can’t thank you enough for letting us be your photographers! We’re so excited you are starting your marriage off in St. Lucia!! HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A BLAST!!!
