I’m back from my quick little jaunt to Lima, Peru – a 5 day adventure that was packed with sight seeing, shopping, llamas, totally insane traffic, an excessive amount of food and… oh yes… an AMAZING wedding!
My baby brother Michael and his bride Priscila were married in a breathtakingly gorgeous ceremony at the Iglesia de San Pedro (Church of San Pedro) in Lima. Words cannot describe the ornate beauty of this 17th century church – and my pictures do not even come close to doing it justice. But you can trust me that it was spectacular!
In a surprising turn of events, I ended up doing a reading from the bible – in Spanish – in the ceremony. I was grateful for the little Spanish I remembered from my few years in high school – and honored to be a part of the service!
Here is the beautiful bride (muy bonita!) getting ready in our hotel!
The reception was something out of a dream – a night of food, dancing and love in a spectacular tented garden on a cliff overlooking the ocean. I am not exaggerating when I say my jaw dropped to the floor as I walked into the magical setting designed by Priscila, her mother Mili, and her amazing wedding planner.
Feast your eyes on these images (yes, they are less-than-amazing iPhone photos, as I couldn’t bring my big camera on the trip!)
You can see some of the professional shots from this incredible day on the photographer’s Facebook page, right here! The photographer, Luis Chiang Chang-Way (Zonanueve Studios), did an incredible job of capturing Priscila’s perfect beauty, among breathtaking sites throughout historical Lima.
