Colorful and Cultural Raleigh Wedding | Mr. & Mrs. Salazar

Mary and Jonathan met while Mary cleaned his teeth.  Not many couples have that story to tell!  Mary was in school to become a Dental Hygienist and unbeknownst to Jonathan, his Mom signed him up for the patient pool through the school to have his teeth cleaned by the students. Guess which lucky student got the job ;-)  Mary and Jonathan will disagree though on how exactly that first meeting went.  He says she was the one flirting with him and she says most definitely he was the one flirting with her!  However the story unfolded, the two were smitten from the moment they met and 7 years later they are married!

This wasn’t just any wedding though.  Mary’s family is from India and Jonathan’s family is from Colombia so they took great care in making sure that they honored ages old traditions from both their homelands.  There were bright colors and gorgeous prints throughout every ounce of the day!  Mary wore a breathtaking white Sari for their traditional Mass ceremony and changed into an opulent burgundy and gold one before the reception. Both were stunning on her!  To honor Jonathan’s Colombian heritage his mother brought in a team of Colombian folklore dancers to perform during the reception! It was amazing!

Their wedding day was so beautifully unique and surrounded by so much love from their families and friends. Mary and Jonathan had their focus in the right place – each other and loving on their families all day. Even when it started pouring (I’m talking, rain coming in sideways downpour!) during our bridal party portrait time, they weren’t even phased! We just went in and finished up in front of the epic staircase inside the Grand Marquise Ballroom.  The title of that room speaks for itself.. grand is an understatement!

I hope you enjoy sharing in Mary and Jonathan’s wedding day as much as we enjoyed sharing it with them!  We are grateful we were a part of their biggest day!   pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin
