16 Nov Marina + Andy // Florida
When you find true love, you know it. It’s the emotion, the feeling, and the memories. Such was the case with my dear friend and college roommate, Andy. He found his true love in Marina. The two of them work for departments in The Walt Disney Company (Orlando, FL). I knew that Andy and Marina had been dating and only hoped that they would ask me to film their wedding. Andy was always a huge supporter of my video work in college and remains a big fan of Delack Media Group’s wedding cinematography work around Chicago and other various destination weddings.
Andy and Marina had a beautiful wedding ceremony (officiated by Andy’s brother, Chris) at the Delray Beach Golf Club. Their ceremony also included a Latin American wedding tradition known as Las Aaaras. During this tradition, the couple exchanges 13 coins to symbolize their pledge to care for one another through time. The coins can represent different things to different couples, but to Andy & Marina, the coins are a reflection of faith, devotion, hope and love.
The weather was perfect and the images I was able to capture in Delray Beach were magnificent! Their families opened their arms to ours and we could not have been more thankful for a wonderful week in Florida. It’s special when a friend is able to find his companion. Andy and Marina are so perfect together and we could not be happier for the two of you.
