Oh how we adore these two! We can’t say enough good things about Pedro & Maggie! They are two of the sweetest, kindest, caring and fun people we’ve ever met. The entire time we were with them, they were nothing but excited. Their laughter is infectious and watching them together brings a warmth to your heart. Just looking through these images made us smile from ear to ear. We might’ve teared up here and there, too. There’s a lot of talk in the wedding industry about booking your ideal clients. For us, personality is the number one thing when we work with clients. If they are trusting, go with the flow, fun, compassionate and are incredibly in love with each other, then that’s the couples we want to work with. Maggie & Pedro fit that bill perfectly. We felt like family the entire weekend and that means the world to us.
Pedro & Maggie are two tatted up Star Wars super fans who brought their wedding to a galaxy far, far away… I had to say it. No joke, when we heard that we had a chance to not just shoot a Star Wars themed wedding and work with Meena from 5th Avenue Weddings, we knew we had to be there! We’re so thankful the opportunity presented itself because it was some of the most fun we’ve ever had at a wedding. I (Josiah) am a massive Star Wars nerd. When Episode 7 came out in 2015, I did the marathon in theaters with my brother-in-law. We sat there from 1am to 7pm watching all 6 films before they premiered The Force Awakens. It was a blast! But I am a huge Star Wars fan and so I was geeking out the entire wedding because there were actually appearances from some of the characters! Stormtroopers directed traffic in the parking lot. R2D2 was the ring bearer and I mean an actual working R2 unit with all the bells and whistles. Literally, he could speak! Finally, Darth Vader made an appearance at the reception and he is just as terrifying in person as he is in the movies. Coolest villain of all time! Pedro & Maggie went all out! Pedro even made custom black stormtrooper helmets for all of his groomsmen. How awesome is that!?
We love you guys! You are both so much fun and we are so thankful for the opportunity to work with you both. Your love is inspiring and the way you bring the best out of people is beautiful. It was clear to see that so many people adore you and we’re glad that we could be added to that list of people. Thanks for being yourselves and embracing your inner nerd. Thanks for trusting us with your photographs. Your wedding will always remain a favorite of ours, not just because of the uniqueness that is a Star Wars themed wedding, but because of who you both are.
