Adriana and Jorge Got Married | Adriana y Jorge se casaron

When Adriana contacted me about planning her destination beach wedding on Jekyll Island, she had a special request.  Her fiancé, Jorge, did not speak English and she wanted a minister that was fluent in Spanish.  She wanted to make sure he knew what he was agreeing to.  Unfortunately, I speak only minimal Spanish and could not possibly perform their ceremony in fluent Spanish.  I do, however, have a friend who is Guatemalan and most assuredly speaks Spanish fluently.  My friend, Sergio Valdez, agreed to become ordained to perform marriages and to perform the wedding ceremony of Adriana Gil and Jorge Zaragova.  It was awesome!

 

The bamboo arbor was set up on the beach and pink and white draping was hung.  May 3rd had turned into a gorgeous day and just perfect for a beach wedding.  Jorge and his groomsmen arrived and I noticed him immediately in his grey suit as they walked toward the arbor.  He understood no English, so Sergio translated my instructions for him and also his groomsmen.  The guests arrived and were gathered around as Jorge and his groomsmen stood in place before the arbor.  The bridesmaids and flower girl, each took their turn and proceeded to the front of the arbor and stood in place, as well.

 

Adriana was escorted by her mother and father.  The three walked forward together and Adriana was presented in marriage.  Jorge and Adriana held hands together as Sergio began the wedding ceremony.  They each said their vows and exchanged their rings.  After they were pronounced husband and wife in Spanish, Jorge kissed his bride!  All completely in Spanish!  It was beautiful!
