Rain Can’t Stop Love – El Conquistador Resort – Fajardo, Puerto Rico – Pooja + Rahul

Planning a wedding is a LOT of work. You pour your time and heart into crafting a special experience for your loved ones. You dream about the moment that you and your other half declare oneness, together, forever. Pooja and Rahul fell in love with the El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico and worked hard to create an unforgettable weekend experience for their friends and family. From the rain forest and ocean views to the sun, sand and delicious food, their dream was to provide a few days where everyone could forget about school, work and life’s other complexities and just enjoy their time on the beautiful island. The plan was for the reception party the night before the wedding day to be held outdoors, under the open starry sky. However the weather didn’t cooperate and forced them to have it indoors. Their wedding ceremony was to be held outside on a hill, overlooking the vast Atlantic ocean. However, they woke up to torrential rain and wind on the morning of their wedding day and the ceremony had also been moved indoors. The vision of a sunny, outdoor island wedding was quickly overcome by discouragement.

As the elements continued to pour down on Fajardo, inside, something strange was happening. The support and laughter of friends, the color, the music and the incredible love of family, all these things quickly made the rain seem like an afterthought. From Rahul’s beautiful gift and message to Pooja, to the tears that Pooja’s parents shed as they gave her away… All of these things are the REAL important things on a wedding day. While yes, you hope that it’s a beautiful day in terms of weather, scene and location, Pooja and Rahul’s wedding day reminded us that none of those things are important when  you compare them to the love of friends and family… NOTHING… As a bonus, it turned out that after the ceremony the rain subsided for a large enough window for us to go outside and capture some portraits.

Pooja and Rahul. Thank you SO much for bringing us into your lives to document this special time in them.
