Anna and Rob met about 10 years ago as they were finishing high school. Rob proposed to Anna during a weekend trip to St. Augustine when they were celebrating Anna’s birthday. When we photographed their wedding around St. Augustine, I knew their wedding would be one of my 2014 favorites, and I wasn’t wrong.
Nate and I had dreamed of shooting at gorgeous Bella Collina ever since I first saw photos of the venue- From the second I stepped out of our car until the last sparkler burnt out, I truly felt like we were photographing a wedding in Italy! I certainly hope and dream of returning, but if Anna and Rob’s wedding is the only one we ever photograph there, I couldn’t imagine a better bride and groom to share that experience. :)
I love when we’re able to work with a great vendor team on a wedding day; For us it makes the difference between a stressful work day and, well, one of our favorites of the year. We finally got to work again with one of our favorite wedding coordinators, Allison from Blush, who kept the day running smoothly and seamlessly. Teresa Knox is always a favorite officiant of ours that we don’t get to work with nearly enough, Patricia LeJeune was on hand to not only put finishing touches on Anna’s already naturally gorgeous face, but also to be her ever calming self on what could have been a very stressful morning- This was the weather that morning. :/
The photo on the left is my favorite- You’d never know that “snowy” Italian photo was taken on a humid Orlando day!
I love little nods to Disney at weddings outside of the parks.
Seriously, Root brides, pleeeeease bring us back here! <3
That liiiiiiiight!!!! I could have photographed them on this staircase for hours!
ANNA, YOU ARE GORGEOUS.
I love a good bridesmaid wall for hiding from guests!
Married!!!! Way too many favorites from this wedding- Come back Wednesday for part two! <3
