From the Photographer:
The bride is Puerto Rican, so the couple paid homage to her roots with lots of Latin dancing all night long! They chose to do standing food stations, so guests could enjoy dinner and dancing at the same time, and once the dancing began (before dinner!) the dance floor was never once empty. The bride got ready on her parents' yacht and sported Chuck wedges and Ray-Bans with her Rosa Clara gown. Her colors, "Shocking Pink & Rose Gold" showed up in every part of their day!
From the Bride:
"We got married at the Eastport Yacht Club, right around the corner from where I grew up, under a clear tent. It was even better than we could have imagined. We tied up my parents boat at the end of the dock for me to get ready in, and we used the long dock as the aisle. Hence our wedding hashtag, #walkerdownthedock! I walked down the aisle to a string quartet version of “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - Ryan’s choice. Ryan’s wore an Hermes tie with skateboards on it and a J. Crew suit. Our rings were brought up in the trunk of a model Porsche - the exact model that the ring bearer's grandfather (Carmen’s mom’s brother) had built right before he passed away years ago, so it was a tribute to him and all our family members that were not able to join us. Carmen’s brother was the officiant - he is a magistrate judge. The reception was a blast! We had food stations with plenty of yummy options (including Adam’s Ribs), music all night, and a cigar bar on the balcony overlooking the tent towards the end of the night. We wrote our vows together the morning/day before the wedding at Grumps (Carmen's fave breakfast spot in Annapolis)."
