This is where the fun begins.

Everything was going great, until the zipper on Lani’s dress broke! After about 30 minutes of the bridesmaids and Lani’s mom trying their best to repair the zipper, they decided to sew Lani into her dress!  Luckily, Lani’s aunt and uncle are skilled tailors. They saved the day!!

The flowergirls were waiting patiently.

While the boys were starting to get a little rowdy:)

Now this is a cool bride. Look at the smile on Lani’s face as her Aunt and Uncle spend close to an hour sewing her into her dress as everyone waited outside.

Gorgeous!

This is a Jewish tradition where the groom “meets” his bride before the actual ceremony.

All the lovely ladies. These girls were SO much fun!

This beautiful chuppah was given to them by Lani’s mom and Step-Dad Augie, and made by Shirley Waxman, a talented Jewish artist in Maryland, who also made their chuppah 20 years ago.

The flower girl thought the ceremony was a perfect time for a nap.

Lani and Dan are New Yorkers, so we didn’t meet them until we arrived in Acapulco to shoot their wedding.   As soon as we met them, they made us feel so welcome and we had such an amazing time documenting their big day.   Their Jewish wedding was  filled with beautiful traditions and customs.  And you could see how much it meant to Lani and Dan to have their friends and family to share such a special day with them in gorgeous Acapulco.

Congratulations to you Lani and Dan! We’re so glad that we got to share your big day with you in Acapulco!!

CJ and I had some adventures of our own after the wedding, which I’ll be posting very soon!

Jennifer — these pictures are AMAZING. I’ll be honest, I got a little teary-eyed looking at them. We are so lucky that you and CJ were able to come and shoot our wedding. Can’t wait to see the rest — and the ones of your Acapulco adventures 😉 Lani
