However, on this day it was over 100 degrees with high humidity. The couple decided to keep all portraits indoors so we remained at the hotel until it was time to go to the ceremony.

Sugared grapes are a tradition passed down by the brides mother. The couple fed each other a delicious grape rather than a cake-cutting.
