Over the past few years, I’ve developed a “bucket list” of sorts for wedding venues I dream of photographing. One of my dreams was to shoot at the gorgeous Bella Collina in Montverde, and last Friday, that dream came true! We were so honored Anna and Rob asked us to document their day, and guys, I hope you love your preview as much as we do! :)

This is Emily, my little sister’s best friend’s big sister. Got it?

We first met Emily and Matt at Cata and Ryan’s wedding, were we took this photo. :) And then we met up for a nearly rained out engagement session around Winter Park’s Rollins College campus, where you can see photos here!

Emily and Matt got ready at the luxurious Colony Palm Beach.

Matt gave Emily ~3 cards on their wedding day, starting with the funny one and ending with, well, this one. :)

I love all three of these women! Stephanie, Emily’s little sister on the right, is just as silly as she is sweet. Emily is classy and kind, and just the teacher I’d want for my someday kids! It’s no surprise that I also loved the woman who raised them the second I met their mom. :) This whole dressing series is my favorite!

Emily is as in love with her nephew as I am with mine- With that face, who could blame her?!

While they flipped the ceremony room for the reception, the cocktail hour took place upstairs.

Emily is our bagillionth Alpha Delta Pi bride, and I think this photo perfectly depicts the “angry fists” part of their sorority song that happens at every ADPi wedding. :)

While their guests got ready for the sparkler exit, Emily and Matt had a private last dance before the night was over. This was Nate’s view-

Four years ago tomorrow, our best friends exchanged vows under a magical acacia tree in Tanzania, Africa. We still haven’t gotten around to editing all of our trip photos- How sad is that?! Until I eventually do a week long blog dedication to our African adventure, you can relive Lorie and Jon’s love story through the blog links below. :) Happy 4th on the 4th, kids!!
