Yesterday, I posted the first half of Paul and Lorena’s wedding at the historic Mission in San Diego. After their ceremony and formal portraits with family and their bridal party, Paul and Lorena’s guests were welcomed to the reception at Candelas Restaurant on Coronado Island. During cocktail hour a full mariachi band played for guests on the outside deck. The mariachi then lead Paul and Lorena into the restaurant for their first dance. I love to see the emotional moments of the day for newly wed couples, and for Lorena, it was when she entered the restaurant to the sounds of the mariachi with all her guests cheering and applauding. After toasts and dinner, another emotional dance with her father followed and finally, dancing dancing dancing!!! The restaurant was barely large enough for all of Paul and lorena’s guests, but tables were pushed out of the way, and everyone crammed the dance floor. It was by all accounts a fantastic, emotional and fun night!
