A few weeks ago I received an email from Nadia who was looking for a photographer for her party. She explained that her and her husband Joe lived in San Antonio. She was coming to town for the first time since finishing chemotherapy and was having this summer fiesta to see all of their friends and family. I was so happy to be able to capture this day for them.
Nadia did all of the work on the details to give them a “fiesta” flair. Everything was so colorful and so fun! Nadia and Joe gave hot sauce and maracas as party favors to all of the guests. The personal note tag had special significance considering their journey.
Instead of table numbers, Nadia and Joe used postcards from their favorite places in Texas. On the back, they wrote what they loved about each place. LOVE! On this postcard, Nadia and Joe described their excursion to Big Bend, their first excursion since facing cancer.
They even used a decorative chalkboard to display the seating arrangements for the fiesta.
This was a really fun event to shoot. Nadia was such a great hostess. She has a great personality and never stopped smiling the whole day!
And then the dancing began!
House of Cupcakes provided treats for the party. Don’t they look amazing?
Thanks Joe and Nadia! I had a great time at your summer fiesta!
Here’s a slideshow of the party:
