I have big deep exhales. What a wonderful trip. And in so many ways I could barely hope to describe. I am so lucky, I pined to Husbone, on many occasions. Jennifer’s family was amazing. Jay’s parent’s were amazing. Jennifer and Jay were AMAZING!! There was so much amazing going on everywhere that I hurt my neck, craning my head around to take everything in. And so it was in Agua Viva, Venezuela, at the hacienda Agua Santa, that Jennifer and Jay proclaimed their love among family and friends, in Jennifer’s wonderful home country. Her mother made the gown from scratch and finished it that morning (amazing!!).
Por favor, perdone mi español. Pero quiero decir muchas gracias por la hospitalidad de sus familias. Sus familias es increíbles, y soy afortunado de haber sido parte de esta celebración increíble. Todos ustedes super super chevere!!
Just a little Spanish, and a little bit more every day. Thank you for such an amazing time. Tune in over the next few days, for a voyage into the Venezuelan wilderness with said people in love. There were jungles among the vastest landscapes I’ve ever even had notions of. Seriously, I couldn’t open my eyes wide enough. And maybe a little bit more on the Husbone and Poo experience, including a trip to Zoologico Bararida en Barquisimeto – with video, free wheeling giant iguanas, and our very first Husbone and Poo “engagement” mini-session via our lovely timer, and Jay!
And when Gabriella cried… well, I just lost it. She’s six years old and her understanding is so beyond her years, I’ve decided that Jennifer and Jay are for some reason lying to me about her age. She is one of the kindest and most romantic kids I’ve ever met. She is so full of joy like her father, so enthusiastic, so genuine. She’s one of the best kids I’ve ever met. I wish she could meet the other best kids I’ve ever met, my sisters daughters, Amora and Sabrina. The three of them together would explode the world in their amazingness.
For the Father Daughter dance, Jay danced with his Gabriella.
The ceremony started 30 minutes late, and by the time it was over, it was pretty dark out. So we grabbed a few shots in the gorgeous night, and decided to pick up the slack at our day after session (coming soon!)
My favorite thing about a Venezuelan wedding… the men are AMAZING dancers! And so are the women of course, and I am mesmerized by the in synchness and the closeness of hips! But it was Jennifer’s sister Wilmary and her boyfriend who I just couldn’t take my eyes off of. they moved with such synchronicity and quiet passion… it was like movie kind of love happening on the dance floor.
Stay Tuned for adventures in the Venezuelan wilderness!
