My favorite part of the Fran and Cristian’s love story is how single-mindedly he pursued her. I LOVE it. Why? Because Cristian knows exactly how to recognize a good thing when he sees it. Fran is intelligent, beautiful, charming and completely willing to, as they say here in Chile, “jugarsela” for Cristian — supporting him to help him pursue his dreams and put his all into a business venture he believes in. That’s what I like best about Cristian too, the way he goes after what he wants with 100% abandon. Those are my favorite kinds of people.

Fran and Cristian’s matrimonio was at the Viña Santa Rita, one of my favorite venues in Santiago. It’s a stunning vineyard and also has a gorgeous ornate church and an antique/boutique style casona-hotel on site. The grounds are AMAZING.

My wonderful friends, New York City wedding photographers Ryan Brenizer and Tatiana Breslow were in town so I asked them to come along for the ride, and lucky for Fran and Cristian, they said yes! HOW LUCKY AM I?! Seriously…it’s a once in a life time chance to get to say I had one of the top ten wedding photographers (no, seriously) in the entire world and his girlfriend come along to second shoot for me! Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart — dream team, for real.
