Roberto and Christina’s Casual Backyard Wedding Photos | Destination Wedding

Wow!  Where did the summer go?  I photographed my friends Roberto and Christina’s wedding last spring and am just now posting it to the blog!  This was a Destination Wedding with a little twist for me because I have known the groom for a while.  Roberto is one of the Directors of the Saratoga Summer Dance Intensive, which I have had the pleasure of photographing for a long time now.  It was wonderful meeting Christina and both of their families!  People came from all over to celebrate this at-home wedding in North Carolina.

“Things to do today–Get Married.”

Christina and Roberto lived in the same city in South America when they were younger, but did not know each other until they were introduced last year in North Carolina.  Christina and her sister Ines even went to school with Roberto’s sister Anita.  It must have been fate.

The church in Cary, North Carolina was modern and simple. I really liked the stained glass window at the entrance.
