Amelia and Alejandro

Backyard Wedding Tauranga

There is a scene here that encapsulates who these two are.  It was a beautiful and ethereal moment that I will carry with me forever as I am sure it will for them.  I was so excited when Amelia got in touch.  They were going to be back in her home country New Zealand to get married and have simple no fuss back yard wedding.  She said before we get married we’d like to go somewhere celebrates New Zealand.  As I got to know them better by email I realised I had a couple who would be up for anything so I asked them if they’d be keen on climbing our local Mountain, Mauao.  And so the adventure began and the challenge was on to keep her dress pristine for the wedding a couple of days later (Amelia wasn’t at all worried but we knew we’d be in trouble with Mum as she had made her dress)!  Their wedding was attended also by Alejandro’s parents who traveled from Mexico to share the day with their son.  But this couple will remain in my thoughts forever.   They played their music together (it’s how they met and what they do for living back in the States) as the sun went down.  Thank you Amelia and Alejandro for allowing me to capture this special time. – Rochelle
