Just a few weeks ago we boarded a plane to take a 9 hour journey to an unknown place in Puerto Rico. Once we landed in San Juan we began another dark 2 hour trek to the other side of the island. It wasn’t until morning that we discovered we were in the middle of paradise, and that this was going to be an epic adventure. Jared and Velisa brought their family and closest friends to a place that meant so much to them and reflected who they are. We were with Jared, Velisa and their peeps for 3 days of activities leading up to the ceremony and insane party that followed. This event was a perfect fit for us because their focus was not so much on floral arrangements and color schemes (however those things may be important) but it was so much more about creating an active experience, that their guests would NEVER forget. There is so much more of the experience that we wish we could have fit into the highlight film. When considering everything that we could include in the film, we decided it was best to stick to the basics. Jared and Velisa have such an authentic, true and raw love, that we wanted to focus mostly on that aspect of the entire experience. So sit back relax and enjoy the radness that is Jared and Velisa.
