Jewel-Toned Summer Wedding in Lafayette | Taylor and Luis

Wide shot of Wedding ceremony

The summer breeze hit Taylor’s face as she turned. The faces of her family and friends beamed as they clapped and cheered. She looked to her right. Her best friends were laughing and smiling along with the crowd. She turned to her right. Luis, her best friend, her husband, looked back at her. A tear ran down his cheek. It was a look she would never forget. A look of pure joy. And, that look was all for her. Luis gently took her by the hand. Her maid of honor, Brooke, gave her her bouquet. And they walked up the aisle of their summer, jewel-toned wedding. Finally, they were husband and wife.


“It was a look she would never forget. A look of pure joy.”


Taylor and Luis’ wedding was amazing for many reasons. But, one reason stood out… And, it captivated their guests and was shared by their family and friends. Their wedding was emotional. From Taylor’s mother helping her with her veil to the reception speeches. The tears and laughs flowed freely on that day. And, there isn’t anything more beautiful than that. Two souls becoming one in a day full of overwhelming joy. And, friends, that’s what marriage is about. Finding that overwhelming joy in every day. And, being thankful that you can spend your life with your best friend.


Taylor and Luis,

You have told me before that you can’t wait to spend your lives together as best friends. Well, you two, that day has come! And I couldn’t be more excited! Your kindness has always spoken volumes to me , but, like I said above, your emotional wedding day proved moreover that you two are meant to be together. Every second told the story of your love. And through the laughs and the tears, it was a day you (and I) will never forget! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Medrano! Here’s to the next 50 years!
