When we think about this wedding and this couple the first word that comes to mind is FUN! They are so easygoing, laid back, and just love to have a good time and that was reflected throughout their wedding day, especially during the reception! We laughed so much and had an amazing time with Leimys, Manny, and their families and friends during their big day. Both of their families made us feel like we were part of the family and the bond that they all share is something that moved our hearts. We couldn’t be happier to spend the day with them, celebrate their union, and dance the night away!
They had so many personal touches and details woven into the entire day! From balloons that said Bride to Be in the getting ready room, to their custom backdrop at the ceremony and reception, to a special dance Manny and his groomsmen did for Leimys (which was THE BEST thing we’ve ever seen)! We just loved seeing so many things that reflected their fun-loving personalities so well! From the moment the dance floor opened, Lemiys and Manny were on it and having a blast dancing the night away with all their family and friends! We’re excited to share some favorites of this sweet couple and their awesome wedding day with you all today!
We loved all of Leimys’ details! These Badgley Mischkas :) LOVED everything about the way these girls set up this room! Bridesmaids first look! Manny gave Leimys a bracelet to wear down the aisle with their initials on it! These bridesmaids were not only super sweet but so gorgeous! We can’t leave out our handsome groom! And his super fun groomsmen! Leimys and her sister hand made all of these signs for the wedding! When the groom sees his bride walking down the aisle, it get’s us every time!
First kiss as Mr. and Mrs. Benitez! We just love these two so much! And Florida finally remembered that it was fall and some of the leaves changed! Love this one so much! Leimys looked absolutely stunning in her dress! Can’t get over this Spanish moss and super sweet couple! This pictures makes us laugh so hard! We told them to be excited and Manny’s face says it all! They had the cutest choreographed dance :) And while Leimys danced with her dad, the rest of the family joined in! They are so close and it’s the sweetest thing! And THIS was probably our favorite part of the entire wedding! Manny and his groomsmen choreographed an entire dance for Leimys complete with boy band choreography! And this has to be one of the best parties we’ve ever been a part of! Everything was SO much fun!!! And although you normally see behind the scenes of me, I’ll drop whatever I need to do to help our brides, including holding her waist so mom can button her dress :)
Leimys and Manny, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to capture your awesome wedding day! Thank you for making us feel like part of your family and we wish you guys the very best on this journey called marriage! We love you guys and welcome to the married club :)
