Disa & Mike Wedding Preview

Disa and Mike are a great couple who are truly in love.  This couple sure has a story to tell their kids…well 2 actually.  First off, the Monday before the wedding day (on Saturday) Mike was taken to the Emergency Unit and hospitalized.  It turns out it was his appendix and it had to be removed.  Well Mike was not released from the hospital until Friday night…the night BEFORE the wedding.  Saturday was a beautiful day and Disa was regretting not having her ceremony outside as originally planned, turns out it was one of the best decisions taken!  Right after the ceremony we headed over to the studio, right next door from The Cortez in Weslaco.  While at the studio…we had a huge Thunderstorm hit our area.  Streets were flooded and they could not leave the studio.  Thank God the reception was right next door.  My dad brought his car in through the back, had Disa & Mike hop on and drove them next door to the reception hall.  Well both Disa and Mike were drenched, but it certainly did not bring their spirits down….IT WAS THEIR WEDDING DAY!  We had tons of fun and got some great shots.  Here are just a few from that day.

Family Time

This past weekend we were surprised with the visit of three of my four uncles who live with their families in Guadalajara Jalisco Mexico.  Jorge, Enrique, & Daniel (my uncles) made their way to McAllen after being in Monterrey with my parents.  It is basically a tradition that whenever we have family visit from Mexico we have a BBQ.  Well because it was a surprise we were not prepared and they all wanted to go to Taco Palenque anyways so that is where we met.  We had tons of fun, plenty of laughs and simply had a great time visiting with them.
