It was just so beautiful. We’ve never taken so many photos of people wiping tears. We’ve also never taken better dance floor photos. Love that makes us cry and makes us dance is what makes it true. It’s what makes us say “I do” forever and ever and mean it.

Jairo and Katrina’s love is true. It is kind and considerate and gracious. They are so grateful to have found the other, for the better people they are and how rich their lives are because of it. They are good together, and together they are good to the ones they love. Love like that is worthy of the grand celebration it received. 

It was clear from the start that the deep love Jairo and Katrina have for each other extends straight to their families, close friends too. Their wedding day was intentionally about celebrating their love with the ones they hold dear. The ceremony was officiated by Katrina’s brother, and the vows Jairo and Katrina wrote and read to one another did not leave many eyes dry.

The reception was filled with live music, phenomenal food and constant laughter. Many toasts were given commending Jairo and Katrina for who they are and how they love. The couple in turn took every opportunity to express gratitude for each other and their loved ones. No wonder so many happy tears were shed throughout their dreamy wedding day. 

Katrina’s Russian heritage was a steady theme throughout, with traditions adding elements of fun for everyone. Jairo’s Hispanic background played a role as well, and all in attendance witnessed two cultures being honored and joined for the best of reasons, love. The dance floor is where it all came together, so much joy and celebration in one place.

Jairo and Katrina, we wish you all the best as you continue your lives as husband and wife. Thank you for reminding us that love is the best reason to cry and to dance.
