As a photographer it is always so rewarding to see our images grace the pages of a magazine. Daniela and Marco’s Copper Creek Golf Club wedding was recently featured in Wedding Trends Magazine. Daniela wrote the piece herself and it was so nice to be able to read her point of view when looking back on the day. Check out more of the images below 🙂
Some words from the bride about her wedding day:
When Marco and I met on a summer abroad program in Italy at 16. we never would have thought we’d be married someday. But, after 10 years of dating, Marco proposed in August 2014 on the construction site of our future home. The next 13 months went by at lightning speed, filled with wedding research vendor appointments dress fittings and marriage classes. We both wanted our wedding day to be a celebration of our commitment to one another,with personal touches as well as traditions that incorporated our families and Italian heritage. While we took care of most of the planning, we enlisted the help of Tea for Two events for same day co-ordination to ensure everything ran smoothly and we could enjoy the day without a worry. The morning of the wedding was shockingly calm. Marco and I got ready at our parents’ homes along with our bridesmaids and groomsmen and were able to relax before it was time to get ready for the afternoon church ceremony at St.Claire of Assissi in Woodbridge. The Bridesmaids wore navy blue Ralph Lauren gowns and carried bouquets of white roses wrapped in navy ribbon. The groomsmen wore navy Hugo suits with black blow ties. Marco chose a black Prada suit, bow tie and patent leather Salvatore Ferragamo loafers. I was so excited to put on the dress I’d been dreaming of for months- a vintage inspired beaded Jenny Packham gown – and my custom made earrings, bracelet and hair piece by Tara Fava Jewelry. My something blue was my pastel pedicure and my something old and borrowed was checked off with a small gold charm of my father’s that was sewn inside my dress. I remember feeling nervous as I walked down the stairs to see all my family and friends waiting, but as soon as I saw them all, I was overcome with so much happiness. Although the church was a short distance from my parent’s home the ride there was one of the best parts of the day because my father drove me in his Alfa Romeo Spyder convertible. He always spoke about wanting to drive me to church on my wedding day and we were both thrilled the weather held up to make it happen. Before I knew it, Marco ad I were standing at the altar in front of everyone, saying our vows and suddenly the priest announced us as husband and wife. Loud cheering and applause broke out as we walked out of the church hand in hand as a married couple for the first time. In the limo ride to our reception venue Cooper Creek Gold Club we celebrated with a champagne toast. Although we battled some cloudy and rainy skies as we zipped around in the gold cart to take some photos with the best wedding photographers Mango Studios we had some fun taking shelter under the canopy of trees and with out clear umbrellas.
The day turned into evening and we welcomes 250 family members and friends to celebrate with us. The best part of the night was when Marco and I stood up on stage and joined the band to perform Michael Jackson to the delight of the crowded dance floor.
