Real Weddings: Brenda Li and Patrick Ball Part 1

bodas-del-encanto-el-convento-2868 cover Happy Friday!

It's the end of another week and time to celebrate with a stunning couple. On Wednesday we showed you Brenda and Patrick's sweet beach side e-session and now we have their breathtaking wedding.

From the Bride...We are a couple of balance – we hail from opposite sides of the country, with different ethnicities (him: Irish/Italian; myself: Chinese/Thai) and widely varied interests. So in choosing what to incorporate into our wedding, we decided not to force all of these random elements into working with each other; we just went with us. History, culture, aesthetics and most of all, a ridiculously fun time, were important features to us, and we wanted a location that represented these contrasting aspects. We picked San Juan, Puerto Rico for this reason, as it not only has the stunning history and culture preserved in Old San Juan, but also offers beautiful beaches, wonderful food and a passionate nightlife. The many sides of Puerto Rico also allowed us to focus each event of our wedding weekend on evoking different parts of us.
