Marcos was a hardened New Yorker when he came to St.Louis to work for the Cardinals. Grown tired of the big city life, he came to the area in pursuit of something new and different. He didn’t come here looking for love, but on the first day of training for his new career, the instructor – a sweet, vivacious, red head caught his eye. He figured he didn’t have a chance, but wasn’t able to stop thinking about her. The New York tough exteriror could not stop the weakness in his gut for his class instructor. As days went on Marcos couldn’t shake his feelings and they in fact became quite the distraction. Ask him today what he learned in the class and he’ll proudly tell you he has no idea. Because the only thing he learned that really mattered was that Carla was single. He finally gathered his courage and asked her out on a date and Carla agreed. They’ve been inseperable ever since.
To say that Carla and Marcos are in love is an understatement. She adores him. She is always excited to see him. He lights up when she enters the room. She still to this day makes him forget where he is and makes his knees go weak. Love like theirs is hard to find. It’s as if the love they felt in the beginning when things are fresh and new when love is easy is still just as strong as today – even when life is hard.
Carla & Marcos are a reminder to the rest of us to look at our spouse with fresh eyes, remember the spark that first drew you to the other, and maybe for awhile – let your knees get weak from just being around one another. To make every day like your very first date.
Enjoy Carla & Marcos’s first day of the rest of their lives – 12/4/09!
Carla & Marcos had a great set up for photos… they chose to have a first glance (a pattern for great photos that cannot be denied) and then head to St.Louis for 4 hours. SO not only are the two madly in love – they are WAY smart.
Where the love fest all began!
Total hotness fellas.
Carla – you rocked this location! What a find!
Carla & Marcos are one of those couples that you don’t have to tell to kiss – they just do it, and you don’t have to tell Marcos to stare at Carla because he already is. This pose was just them – wrapped up in each other.
One thing I haven’t mentioned is what great friends Carla and Marcos have. These friends braved the FREEZING cold temps and still put on a smile. I had no feeling in my feet – seriously. It was obnoxiously frigid, but no one ever complained. Everyone needs friends like that!
The ceremony and reception we both at the same location and it worked out wonderfully! A photographer’s dream.
Carla & Marcos – you both make my heart smile. It’s so wonderful to watch two people so visibly in love say their vows. Your love is strong and steadfast and Roger and I admire you both and will never forget you or your wedding day! Congratulations!!!
All of their photos will be online on Friday so come see all their pics next year!! (yeah, I just said that)
