Alyssa & Bryan | Rustic Chic Vow Renewal

A Rustic Chic Vow Renewal at You Farm in Loxahatchee, FL


Rustic Chic Vow Renewal (2)


Twelve years ago I had the honor of being a bridesmaid in their wedding. On Friday, November 16th, I had the honor of documenting their vowel renewal. The ceremony took place at You Farm in Loxahatchee, FL, on a chilly night. Their elegant attire paired charmingly with the rustic outdoor venue.

Their day was filled with sweet smiles, tender tears and loving glances. Family closely witnessed them as they reaffirmed the promise they had made in an intimate setting. This time, their two daughters stood close by to witness their parents rededicate their love for each other. It was a beautiful sight to see those young girls witnessing such a powerful example of what a Godly marriage commitment should look like.

Alyssa and Bryan, thank you for allowing us the privilege of being a part of this special day! We pray that God will continue to bless your marriage and family immensely! We know God is using you both to impact the lives of so many around you! Thank you for being such a blessing in our lives!

20-Week Pregnancy Update & Maternity Portraits at Mounts Botanical Garden

20-Week Maternity Portraits at Mounts Botanical Garden


20-Week Maternity Portraits at Mounts Botanical Garden (1)


20-Week Pregnancy Update:

Baby Bolin is a…

GIRL!

We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce baby Bolin is a GIRL!! We found out at 19 weeks and it was just the best news! I felt like Christmas came early! I may have jumped up and thrown my arms in the air when the ultrasound technician announced it! We announced it to family and friends a few days later. I cannot believe I am halfway through this pregnancy already! Today I am 21 weeks and it’s just crazy how quickly this pregnancy is going by!

This mid-pregnancy session wasn’t planned, but when we found out we were having a girl, and I saw a pink-flowered tree, I knew a quick session just had to happen! I also had the perfect dress just sitting in my closet, so it felt meant to be! 🙂 I had seen this pink-flowered Silk Floss Tree outside of Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach, Florida while driving by a few times. I had never seen this tree in full bloom before, and it was truly breathtaking.

My first thought was, “If I have a girl, I want get some photos captured with that tree!” So when we found out we were having a girl later that week, I immediately called my mom and told her about the tree. She has also loved photography since she was a girl and instilled my passion for it when I was in grade school. So she was just as excited about it! We ended up making an afternoon of it and explored the whole botanical garden, since it had been years since we both had been there!

We explored the entire garden, capturing photos of all the exotic flowers and plants while capturing a few portraits, too! At the end, we captured photos with the pink tree just as the sun was about to set! The light was golden, and the tree was backlit with gorgeous color! It was the perfect lighting and the tree’s flowers seemed to pop off the tree.

My mom, Maritza Guerra, did such an amazing job with these photos! I couldn’t be more thrilled with how they came out! Here are my favorites! I somehow got my favorites down to forty-something, we took over a thousand photos on my camera alone! I guess you could say we were a little shutter-happy! 😉
