josy + bryan // coral gables, fl
Recently, I had the honor of acting as both filmmaker and best man at my brother’s wedding. Bryan is the baby of my family and he is someone that I find fascinating. He’s a sweet guy who not only sees the glass as half-full, but overflowing with possibility. He’s got big dreams and plans to pursue each and every one of them. He and Joselyne currently own a gym and a very popular Paleo-friendly bakery (yes, they deliver). He also dabbles in painting and just about anything else that someone might find interesting (including poetry, which you’ll hear in his vows). What makes Josy such a perfect partner is that she quiets the noise and brings focus to his life. She has a calming strength and maturity that complements his extroverted goofiness. They met in high school and have been together for over 8 years, so I’ve considered her a sister for a long time now. These two have accomplished so much in such little time and we’re excited to see what’s next for them. Congratulations Josy and Bryan, we love you both!
We’d also like to give a major shout-out to all of the wedding vendors that contributed their talents to this event. They made my little brother and his wife very happy and for that, we are eternally grateful. Elaine and Mike, the photos are awesome! Hopefully this video will make my family stop talking about how much they love the photos for a few minutes ;)…That stunning flower-wall featured in their ceremony was created by Rick and his team at Avant Gardens. Reverend Eddie Rodriguez often appears in our films because he’s one of the greatest officiants and he gave us a beautiful ceremony. Their wedding planner Sari made sure that everything went flawlessly and Vanessa from Ohh My Sweetness created an amazing/delicious dessert station that all the guests raved about. Lastly, I’d like to thank the video team. While I was running around doing best man stuff, I was at ease knowing that Jessica, Evan and Idalia were capturing everything beautifully.
