Olvera Street was the perfect location for Humberto and Griselda’s engagement shoot. They are both proud of their Mexican heritage and want to pull as many cultural elements as possible into their wedding. So when Griselda told me that she wanted to do their shoot there because of all of the bright colors I was excited! Then she told me about the shoes she had bought from shoe hungry, for the shoot. Uuuummmm….. yes please! I couldn’t wait to see the shoes. And they did not disappoint!
Griselda and Humberto are technically another eharmony story. I say “technically” because she had been friends with his cousin (I think it was his cousin. Griselda, correct me if I’m wrong!) for years. Anyway, on one of the free communication weekends he saw her profile, but not her photo. But he remembered that a girl with the same name and all the same information was his friend on myspace years ago. So he looked her up and contacted her. They started dating and knew right away that they wanted to spend their lives together. So Humberto can thank eharmony for meeting his sweetheart, even though he never actually joined eharmony, as a paying member. I think he made out pretty well!
I am super excited for their wedding at the Bower’s Museum next year!
I loved Griselda’s Frida Kahlo necklace. It was perfect. And I LOVE this photo.
These cards are from a game called La Loteria, a Mexican game that’s kinda like Bingo. They are going to be using pieces of the game as a theme throughout their reception. I can’t wait to see!
This Mariachi band was kind enough to help us out with a little mood music.
Humberto bought some cascarones, hallowed out eggs filled with confetti, to break over Griselda’s head. Traditionally, you’re supposed to break one over the head of the guy or girl you’re sweet on!
So much fun! I had a blast with you guys and I can’t wait until your wedding!
