An Ecuadorian lady meets an English boy. They fall in love in London and the rest is history.
Claudia and PJ decided to have their wedding on the southern coast of Southern UK in St. Ives Cornwall. Here you find beautiful blue water beaches, cobblestone roads, a small community full of great food including fish and chips as well as steak pasties.
It was amazing to see Claudia’s and PJ’s family come together since they both come from completely different cultures, Ecuador and English.
Views from our Hostel we stayed at! My sister, Grizel (pictured on the left) happened to be the Maid of Honor, so we obviously had a good time. 😉
Claudia’s mom saying a few words with her before she goes to her first look! It was so sweet!
First look with Claudia’s best friends!Praying for Claudia before the ceremony got Claudia’s dad a little emotional. The only way he could stop crying was by looking at this hilarious photo of his other daughter, Shirley. It was pretty hilarious.Kisses before their first look. 🙂
Claudia opened her card PJ got for her before their ceremony. It was so sweet. Praying before the ceremony with Claudia’s family and best friends.
PJ and Claudia’s parents during the ceremony, so happy for them.
LOL! The best part about this celebration was the Marachi Band Parade after the ceremony all the way to Reception Location. The whole town stopped everything everything to watch us parade loudly down the streets of St. Ives, Cornwall as we sang and shouted “Que Vivan los novios!” (English: “Long live the Bride and Groom!”) and the rest responded back with “QUE VIVAN!”
A genuine moment alone right after the ceremony. After the ceremony and parade was followed by more dancing at cocktail hour!Claudia’s sweet abuletia y abulito (grandparents) danced the night away! Thanks to Nataly, she captured a moment of me and my friend Robby dancing to the Mariachi band! All the generations of Wives in the family. Sunset in Cornwall. How could an Ecuadorian not plan a well choreographed dance into their first dance? 😉
That’s my husband on the right 😉
Thanks to all the incredible vendors that made this day possible!
