Ximena + Ben | A Blending of Culture & Family

What strikes us about Ben & Ximena’s wedding is how intentional it was. Their entire wedding was both in English and Spanish – and though that may sound intensive or belaboring, it didn’t feel that way at all. It was such a beautiful picture of two cultures combining, celebrating each other, and uniting as one. There were many times, particularly during the ceremony when a sentence would be said in English, then again in Spanish, and I would find myself emotional all over again as if hearing it for the first time. It was so unique, and unlike any wedding Kaleb and I have ever filmed.

It’s only fitting that Ximena and Ben fell in love with each other – both world travelers molded by their wonder for culture. We treasured the time leading up to their wedding, sharing delicious South Asian food, and swapping adventure stories, laughs, and Spotify playlists with them. We couldn’t be more happy to share in this day with these two amazing people.
