I can’t think of a better way to kick off this Monday morning than with Daniela and Greg’s incredible wedding day at The Estate at Florentine Gardens! Not only was their wedding beautiful, but Daniela and Greg (and their families!) are some of the kindest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. You could really feel the love and joy all throughout the day!
Daniela says that she and Greg met through her sister and instantly had a connection (though they didn’t start dating until over one year later!). The night that they met, Greg told another friend of his that Daniela would be the woman he was going to marry. Greg prepared a week long proposal which ended with him actually proposing in Maine! It was on their list of places where they’ve always wanted to visit (they love adventures!). He prepared adventures and activities for each day of Daniela’s birthday week. Each activity signified something special in their lives. It was truly romantic!
I spent the afternoon photographing Daniela, her lovely bridesmaids, and gorgeous details in the bridal suite at Florentine Gardens. Daniela couldn’t have been happier or more relaxed! She was absolutely glowing and having the best time celebrating with her bridesmaids and family members. It was so much fun to watch! Daniela and Greg planned their wedding ceremony for just before sunset (which was amazing because we had the most gorgeous, golden light!). Guests waited with the anticipation of seeing Daniela walk down the aisle with her Dad – and when she did, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the crowd! Greg had the sweetest reaction of them all. After the ceremony, it was time to take some bride and groom portraits! Daniela and Greg were SUCH naturals – I had the best time photographing them! I also have to add that their reception was a blast! Being a person of Italian descent myself, I thoroughly enjoyed bopping along to the Tarantella and Dean Martin songs on the dance floor! So much fun.
Congratulations, Daniela and Greg! ❤️ It was such an honor to photograph your wedding day. Enjoy some of my favorites below!
