The day was the perfect scene...February 21, 2014 at 5:00 pm Cabo San Lucas time, 75 degrees and the sun was shining! It was the perfect setting for the day I have dreamed of for four years. My maid of honor, my daughter Haley, my fiancé George and 24 of our closest friends and family shared in the loveliest moment of my life (aside from the birth of my dear Haley).
The ocean was the most glorious backdrop with whales and dolphins jumping and the sun dancing on the waves with the harmony of an acoustic Spanish guitarist. We requested that the guitarist play my husband to be’s favorite song that he had dedicated to me, "Bendita la Luz", this would be the song I walked down the isle to.
If I were asked to paint a picture of this day, it would look exactly as the photography of my dear friend and client, Melissa Brandman, depicted that day. Her photos capture the beauty and energy of our special day so stunningly! Looking back on this perfect day, I feel that each photograph re-creates the mood as if I were there again.
My married name is now Valerie Saunders-Sanchez. Saunders being my maiden name and Sanchez the last name of my new husband. I am loving married life and for those who ask; yes, it feels so different! I am loving every moment of being married to George!
Please, enjoy the fine and very beautiful photography by Melissa Brandman!
