A couple years ago we photographed the wedding of an amazingly talented couple, in the chapel at University of Portland. The music during the ceremony was either composed or arranged by the groom, Vicente Avella, and it was stunning.
Vicente recently recorded a new album of wedding ceremony music, All the Days of My Life, to great acclaim (check it out here). It even features our photo of his bride on the cover. It’s soothing and lovely.
“I hold the memory of my own wedding as one of the most beautiful days of my life,” Vicente says. “I can recall every detail: the crisp October afternoon, the clear skies, the dried leaves on the ground, that first moment I saw my bride dressed in white, the love I felt, the look in her eyes, the way everyone there radiated happiness, and the thrilling rush as we ran out of the church hand in hand, starting our lives together as husband and wife. Those memories will remain with me forever. They hold within them everything that is most meaningful to me.”
We were there, running out of the church with them! It’s a privilege not only to have worked with the Avellas at their wedding, but to also play a small part in Vicente’s success. Congratulations, and keep up the beautiful work!
