Every couple dreams of a picture-perfect wedding, a celebration of their love surrounded by their loved ones. For Maggie and Alex, their dream wedding became a reality in the architecturally and historically rich Church of San Jose in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Despite last-minute changes, they entrusted their photography coverage to the talented Betzy from Celébrate Creative Studio, who beautifully captured their special day. In this blog, we will delve into the details of their wedding photography experience, from the unexpected changes to the picturesque ceremony and post-wedding photoshoot in the enchanting city of Old San Juan.

A Recommendation Worth Celebrating: Maggie and Alex's journey with Celébrate Creative Studio began when one of their bridesmaids highly recommended the services. The couple's friend is a local, and a friend of her highly recommended Betzy, Celébrate's talented photographer. Intrigued by the recommendation, Maggie reached out to us and received a detailed email outlining their options. Initially they planned a post-wedding photoshoot in El Morro, the couple later decided to change their plans and requested photography coverage from the beginning of the ceremony.

Embracing Change and Celebrating Love: On the day of the wedding, Maggie and Alex's plans underwent a spontaneous shift. With the desire to capture every precious moment, they opted to have Celébrate's services start from the beginning of the ceremony. Understanding the importance of this decision, Betzy gladly accepted the change and adjusted her schedule accordingly.

A Serene Morning in Old San Juan: Betzy arrived at the architecturally stunning Church of San Jose on a beautiful morning, ready to document every moment of the ceremony. As Maggie and Alex exchanged their vows and shared their love with their closest friends and family, Betzy skillfully captured the emotions and significance of the occasion. The timeless beauty of the church provided a captivating backdrop for their union. By the end of the ceremony they did the wedding party photos, group photos, and family portraits. The newlywed were very happy for how everything was turning to be.

A Breakfast Celebration at El Convento Hotel: Following the ceremony, the wedding party made their way to the nearby El Convento Hotel, where they spontaneously chose to have breakfast. This impromptu addition to the itinerary allowed for cherished moments of togetherness and celebration. Betzy utilized this time to capture candid photos of the couple and their loved ones, reflecting the warmth and joy shared by all.

Journeying to El Morro for the Photoshoot: After the breakfast celebration, the group embarked on a post-wedding photoshoot at El Morro. While all the guest arrived to El Morro, we took the liberty of doing a fast scouting of the premises. Betzy quickly identified the best route to take considering some elderly guest that could not do a complicate stroll. Led by Betzy's creative vision, they explored the historic site, capturing breathtaking moments against the backdrop of the ocean and the iconic El Morro's Chapel. The couple's decision to include this location in their photography coverage honored their original plans and added a touch of nostalgia to the day. We intentionally did some pictures of the newlyweds in front of the chapel for them to have a memory of that day.
