Mercy Academy Summer Luncheon 2016

This year the Merici Academi alumni celebrated the 75th anniversary of the foundation of the school.  They also celebrated the anniversaries of the Classes of 1946 (70 years), Class of 1951 (65 years), Class of 1956 (60 years), and class of 1961 (55 years).  It is inspiring for me to see how loyal these ladies are to the memory of their beloved school and lifetime friends.  It is always a pleasure for me to be among them.  Congratulations to all!  To view all the photos and order prints please visit the Galleries section of to the right or CLICK ON THIS LINK:  #mce_temp_url#

Merici Academy Summer Luncheon 2015

It’s always such a pleasure for me to attend the Merici Academy luncheon and this year was no exception.  After being unable to attend last summer, I can say that I missed this group of great ladies and I was very happy to see them all again.  It was a great event made special by the bond of friendship and sisterhood these wonderful ladies share.  It is truly admirable!  If you wish to view the complete album and order prints, please visit the LolyPix gallery by clicking on this link: https://www.shutterfly.com/pro/LAcuna/LolyPixPhotography/Merici2015

Bertica, Carlos & Nieves’ Celebration

It has been Bertica’s dream to have a big party  surrounded by her family and good friends to celebrate all the good things in her life. What a great idea!  Well, her dream recently came true, and I had the pleasure of photographing the event.  They celebrated Bertica’s birthday, her mother, Nieve’s birthday, and Bertica and Carlos’ wedding anniversary.  The party was so much fun, and everything was so beautiful!  The event design, production, and catering was provided  by  Suzanne Michael Haute Cuisine & Events,  The music was provided by David Oliva’s band and the party was just a blast.  I leave you with some shots and a music slideshow from the night.  Enjoy!

Merici Academy Summer Reunion 2011

For the second year in a row I was fortunate to attend and photograph the Merici Academy Summer Reunion.  The Merici Academy was an all girl Catholic school founded in Havana, Cuba in 1941.  This group of ladies have quickly grown on me and when I’m around them, I kind of feel like one of their own.  This year’s event got started with a mass officiated by Father Ernesto Fernandez-Travieso, followed by a fun cocktail hour where “the girls” got to see old friends and reminisce looking through old photographs.  We then continued to a lunch and celebration of anniversaries of the Classes of 1946, 1951, 1956 and 1966.  I love it!!!  Thank you ladies for being so classy and for trusting me with the photos of your event.It was a blast!!!

Ana & Michael’s Vows Renewal Ceremony

Ana and Michael are celebrating their twentieth wedding anniversary this month, and as a surprise to Ana, Michael planned their wedding vows renewal ceremony.  The celebration took place at Temple Menorah in Miami Beach where their family gathered to witness the event.  Ana and Michael stood under the “chuppah” just as they did twenty years ago, but this time they were surrounded by their children, Joel, Jordan and Rachel who joyfully watched as their parents reaffirmed their wedding vows, love, and commitment to one another.  Michael’s words were heartfelt and touching and Ana was just “speechless,” but she managed to say a few things that made Michael smile.  After the ceremony, they went on to enjoy a celebration dinner at a favorite restaurant.  I was happy to be there to capture some photos of the beautiful ceremony for them.  “Mazel Tov my friends!”

Rebecca & David’s 25th Wedding Anniversary

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting Becky, Dave, and their beautiful children David, Andrew and Katherine.  We met at their home in Miami Springs for some family portraits to include their dogs Daisy and Suzy, who were not invited to the formal party.  Becky and Dave celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with a group of family and friends by renewing their vows during a heartfelt ceremony followed by a fun dinner/dance party.  It was a wonderful night for Becky and Dave and for all of us around them who joined in their happiness.  Happy Anniversary Becky and David and my sincere congratulations on a job well done!!!!
