The Torres family is practically family to me – Brooke’s kids call me “Aunt Kerri” and I was head over heels when Mei-Lin Torres asked me to photograph her wedding to Eric Reisin.

What can possibly be said to prepare you for a Torres Wedding? Where the Torres family is, there will be food. There is no end to the love. Every family gathering ends up a bit like a talent show. That pretty much sums up this wedding.

Did I mention the entire wedding party is gorgeous?

The Wedding and Reception were held at SOHO Catering and Events in Hollywood, FL. The location is gorgeous – the Ceremony was outside at dusk, and we all moved inside for the reception.

We moved inside for a cocktail hour and reception. The entire place was blinged out, and the curtained walls changed color during different parts of the reception.

There was an abundance of toasts, some funny but all heartfelt. Marcus, Mei-Lin’s brother sang his toast with a ukelele.

Did I mention the talent show? Gabby (Mei-Lin’s sister) performed a beautiful ballet routine.

Brooke and Josh (Mei-Lin’s cousin) sang, Marcus was on trombone, Mei-Lin was on flute, and Gabby was on the cowbell, and they all sang backup.

Here’s the video of their performance:
