Old San Juan Wedding

Mariandrea and Nikolas were married in the San Jose Church (Iglesia de San José) in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Their ceremony was Catholic, which is typical for a Puerto Rican wedding. What was unusual about this wedding, however, was the access I was given to the altar. It is highly unusual for a photographer to be allowed onto the altar, so I tried to maximize my access while being respectful. I waited until just the right moment, when the priest was doing communion, to grab this photo of the couple enjoying a small moment together while the guests and bridal party were enveloped in communion behind them.
