This has been the year of getting to shoot at different venues that I’ve been watching for years. Ever since I went and met with Michelle, the owner of the venue, years ago, I’ve wanted to shoot a Bella Fiori Gardens Wedding. It’s such a beautiful garden, what’s not to love. When I first started talking to Amanda, I was instantly excited when she let me know that was their venue, and the more I learned, the more the excitement grew. Then I met them for the first time during their sand dune engagement session, and KNEW their wedding day was going to be the best.
I loved that Amanda thought of literally everything on her wedding day. She had so many beautiful details- a custom ring box, not one, but TWO gorgeous pairs of shoes, a sweet charm for her bouquet to remember her late father, and I can’t forget about her rose gold hair piece and jewelry. Everything helped tie her bridal look together perfectly, and she looked absolutely stunning!
Their first look before their ceremony went off without a hitch, and we had the CUTEST little photo bomber. Their son stole my heart in his snazzy little outfit and we had to get some shots of them all as the sweetest family! It was adorable.
Their ceremony was the perfect length of time on a super hot day, and they included a sand ceremony (though their kiddo had better ideas of tearing everything down HA), and partied into the night, BUT not before I stole them for some of the sweetest sunset photos! It really was a great day.
Brad and Amanda, thank you for letting me celebrate with you guys on such an important day!! Congrats again!!!
