Matt and Frank were neighbors at an apartment complex that as they called it was a very social building sort of like “Melrsose Place”, but without the drama. Five years ago they met there and bonded over their dogs.
Matt has a white deaf boxer named Jack and Matt has a fawn boxer named Remy. In September 2014 they took a trip to Italy. Matt proposed to Frank at Lake Como, while they stood atop the archway adorned pavilion of Villa Balbianello, overlooking the lake.
Puerto Rico as the Destination of Choice for a Gay Wedding
When you are planning your gay wedding, Puerto Rico is a perfect destination. Gay marriage is now official on the Island, and marriage licenses are being issued to same-sex couples.
Thus, Matt and Frank decided to travel from California to have their destination weddings at our beautiful Island. A place they had felt in love with on a previous trip. No passport needed to enjoy beautiful beaches, a lush forest and amazing food! Who can say no to that?
Wedding Ceremony at Hotel La Concha in Condado
They held their ceremony at Hotel La Concha, overlooking the Ocean. The color scheme for the wedding was blue and orange with a vintage feel since they wanted a decor that would reflect a little fun and that would reflect their quirky/geeky personalities.
Capturing a Beautiful Ceremony
A heartfelt ceremony led way to a fun evening with their closest family and friends.
This review is long overdue. We were looking through the photos from our wedding and were reminded of Nilka's amazing talent, and how we had neglected to publicly commend her.
Nilka was the the perfect choice to photograph our special day. Neither of us are very good at posing for photos, but Nilka captured all the special moments, and managed to make us look natural, relaxed (no small feat, since we both get nervous and awkward when we know we are being photographed)
She met with us a couple of days before the wedding so that she could get to us, and find out more about what we wanted to get out of our pictures. Her warm and professional demeanor instantly put us at ease.
Words cannot express what a joy it was to work with Nilka, and the finished products were more than we could have hoped for. We highly recommend her and if we had it to do all over again, we would not change a thing.
Thank you Nilka!
