If I had to sum up Jeremy and Brandi’s wedding into a few words, it would be dreamy, meaningful, and intentional. With every detail I could feel the love and purpose as I shot their wedding. This gorgeous Mexico wedding was full of the most gorgeous tones and colors I’ve ever had the pleasure of capturing, and while Brandi kept certain things minimal, every detail was carefully chosen with meaning.
It was so beautiful to listen to speeches and toast during Brandi & Jeremy’s wedding. They met over 10 years ago and have truly grown up together. They grew to be best friends who LOVE hitting the slopes and, living adventurously together.
You could truly feel the culture with the tones, colors, decor, and traditions of this wedding. I was honored to have been a part of such an incredible celebration of love.
A Few Words From The Bride
A few words from the bride, describing why they chose Oaxaca, Mexico to be the place they became one .“We chose to get married in Oaxaca because my family, specifically my mom's family is from there and currently live there. I went to Oaxaca in 2018 to find my family that my grandma lost touch with and my mother never met. I wanted to build a bridge back to my roots. I was searching for pieces of myself that had gotten lost along the journey to the US. Jerr came to visit me while I was there for an extended trip and fell in love with the city, the people the land. It just felt like both of us had come home. We decided we wanted to get married there and have our celebration with family old and new. We hope in our retirement we can eventually live there. It’s so important to keep the culture you have alive in your family. I wanted to have answers for our children when the time comes. It’s really important to me" -Brandi
The couple performed a special native ceremony, and chose to do so because of Brandi's Aztec roots. Brandi said, “In some people's eyes, water and the sun are God. I’m Aztec culture and we have specific deities that aren’t necessarily “gods” but rather the spirits we need to remember and be thankful for. We exchanged water last to give each other life and to be able to accept life from each other.
Corn for sustenance to keep us going when things get hard and sustain us when things are good.
Honey for the sweetness of life and the sweetness we bring to each other. The honey was infused with magic mushrooms the medicine of my people. The medicines of Oaxaca and it was to bring us the magic and medicine for our relationship.
Cacao for the bitterness of life, and to remember things can’t always be sweet.” - Brandi
