It was such a delight to work with a groom (Collin Richie), who is a wedding photographer! The planning of this wedding was extremely easy. Collin and Janay knew all. In fact, their ceremony rehearsal lasted like two minutes. 😃
The ceremony was leaded by one of the best friends of Collin. And was held at the plaza of Porta Hotel Antigua, with a stunning view of San José El Viejo.
In the wedding of Collin and Janay, we had something completely new in Guatemala, we had a Live Painter! His name is Alex Harvie and he and his job are amazing!
The beautiful decoration was made by the creative floral designer Hugo Mejicanos; and the cake by the talented Sofia Cobian. Great music by Buena Vista de Corazón, and DJ Edwin Garcia. Beautiful hair and makeup for Janay, by Verde Beauty Studio. And delicious Guatemalan food by Porta Hotel Antigua.
Many of the guests that came to the wedding of Collin and Janay work in the wedding Industry in USA, so this wedding was very exciting! With Collin being an outstanding wedding photographer in USA, it meant a lot to us to be asked to do the planning of their destination wedding in Antigua, Guatemala.
Cinematographers Chris and MaryClare, from Bride Film Cinematic Weddings, produced a stunning film to commemorate the celebration. They included images about the elegant rehearsal dinner at El Sereno, wedding day, trip to Antigua and Lake Atitlan, cooking clases, etc. This is one of the best wedding films we've ever seen!
In this memorable wedding we had the honor to work with the amazing photographer Jason Cohen. And yes, as Chris and MaryClare said, taking into consideration that Collin and Janay work in the wedding industry, we and all the vendors involved in this wedding were pushed to create something outside of our comfort zone. And the result was an extraordinary wedding!
I could write forever about the beautiful details and wonderful planning process this wedding was… It was such a pleasure to be a part of Janay and Collin´s wedding day.
Collin and Janay, we absolutely loved working with you. We wish you so much laughter and light together for the rest of your lives!
