The other weekend we had the privilege of photographing Juan Carlos and Ray’s wedding on the property of their beautiful country retreat. Myself, and the rest of the Pictures by Todd team, were excited for their wedding as we knew it was going to be a really special day. This was the second same sex wedding that we photographed in as many weeks and both couples had been together for some time, but were waiting for the opportunity to legally get married. Juan Carlos and Ray had already been together as a family for over 16 years, so being able to witness and document a day that they’d been waiting so long to have, was really meaningful to us. We also knew they were going to incorporate lots of things that we don’t typically see at weddings… such as a full orchestra to play at the ceremony…. as well as a great band that kept everyone moving during the reception. A good friend who’s a talented opera singer to sing during the ceremony and touching poems and readings by friends and family members in a number of different languages. The love that everyone had for JC and Ray was palpable, and the fact that guests had flown in from across the globe was a testament to how special they are to so many people. Below you’ll find some teasers from throughout the day and it’s hard to not notice the big smiles on everyone’s faces!
