The three flower girls, with their rosie cheeks in their fluffy dresses, sprinkled white petals beneath their feet as they walked. The sun was softly glowing behind them as they giggled together, the all-encompassing florals that surrounded them overflowing into the aisle with puffs of white like popcorn. Everyone beamed as the girls made their way to their seats, the crowd joyfully observing as the three found their families who gave them hugs of approval for how well they did. But Anthony, his gaze looked just past the sweet little ones and their princess dresses, as his bride made her way toward him, arm-in-arm with her father. The two men who love Daniella more than anyone, both looking at her with stars in their eyes (and her dad with tears in his). The pearls in her veil sprinkled like snow down her hair and dress, and her smile was so genuinely exuberant as she stepped closer to her best friend. She could tell her dad was elated, yet his heart was feeling that bittersweet sting, and she squeezed his arm and rested her head on his shoulder. Then, she took her groom’s hand and it was as if no one else in the world was there, just the two of them under the circular flower arch that resembled the infinite forever that awaits them. Pure magic.
Daniella and Anthony’s wedding day was so classically beautiful, with no detail lacking, yet filled with such authentic joy that I couldn’t help but smile the whole time. My cheeks actually hurt! With champagne bridesmaid dresses, dove-white flowers and linens, flickering candles, and guys in classic black tuxes, my photographer heart was bursting at the seams. What a dream to capture! But even more dreamy was the way Anthony looked as his bride and pulled her in close, and how she literally could not stop smiling around him. I can’t believe I got to witness these moments. Daniella and Anthony, thank you for letting me be a part of the magic that was your wedding! I know that your life ahead will be filled with just as much joy (and champagne) as this day, and I can’t wait for you to experience the gift of marriage. Congratulations you two!
