The love between Mariana and Thomas is a love that has endured. At nineteen years old, Thomas made a commitment to Mariana's father that he would protect her. He said he didn't know the magnitude of that promise, however thirteen years later he has continued to hold on to his word, hold on to Mariana, and hold on to his family.

Mariana is one of the kindest brides I have ever worked with. She was so grateful to have me film her wedding, which means so much to me as a filmmaker. As an artist, to feel appreciated and cared for is something that we don't always get. I was so honored to be a part of their special day and capture all of these beautiful moments.
