Linda Mendez and Rob Lentz knew when booking their March 5 wedding that weather conditions could span spring and winter, but they had a specific timeframe to get married and they loved Cedarwood. We are so happy they did! What a treasure this couple is – they radiate happiness and turned this rainy day into a celebration of love and good times. We loved their ‘lucky in love’ horseshoe favors (a nod to Texas where they fell in love) and their rockin reception. Just looking at their wedding day photos by Jessica Rai of Gray Photography make us feel good.
Photographer Jessica Rai says, “I was so honored to capture the first Cedarwood wedding of the year & even more honored to have photographed such a sweet couple! I don’t think I could possibly say enough about Rob & Linda! I loved this couple and their amazing family and friends. Linda was an absolutely stunning bride with the most amazingly positive attitude. It was a cold, rainy day, but Linda didn’t even let that phase her, she never once even mentioned the rain! She was just ecstatic about seeing her groom 🙂 Rob was such a great guy & he was just as excited about seeing Linda for the first time that day. Their ceremony was so sweet & Linda never stopped smiling the entire time. The reception was filled with lots of sweet toasts from dear friends & family & plenty of dancing & good times. I love it when I get the opportunity to photograph a couple that is head over heals in love with each other & that’s exactly what I got with Rob & Linda. I wish the two of you many, many years of happiness & I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them!”
We hope every 2011 Cedarwood wedding is as joyful as Rob and Linda’s. Our fondest best wishes to the newlyweds and special thanks to Jessica Rai and Gray Photography for sharing images. Thanks also to Cedarwood staff photographer Aspen Hall for a few bonus details.
