Timeless Elegance | Bella Collina | Florida Wedding Photographer

Danielle and Garth’s timeless wedding at Bella Collina was gorgeous and stylish with a feel of classic modern. The Tuscan atmosphere of Bella Collina was a perfect backdrop for their beautiful elegant and fun wedding.

Even though the ceremony was delayed by a big storm that was passing through everyone was confident and all the vendors adjusted perfectly to make sure the wedding day went on perfectly. But the rain was temporary and the breeze it brought with it made the weather so much cooler and more beautiful that anyone could have ever planned for.

The getting ready part of the day went smoothly and everyone was relaxed as they enjoyed themselves and each other. The bride and groom had not only plenty of time to get ready but lots of time to create memories that will last a life time with friends whom they already have know for most of their lives. It was truly special to see how much people love the bride and groom and how much they respect them not only for what they had accomplished but mostly due their kind and loyal personalities.

The mother of the bride found herself over-run with emotion specially when Danielle was getting into her wedding gown. Moments later the bride had a quiet moment with her mother and was also overwhelmed with the emotion of the moment. On top of all of that the groom’s father who is a Pastor was the officiant to their wedding ceremony as well.

The ceremony was emotional and filled with friends and family who’s eyes either filled with tears, or smiles that spoke a million words of what they felt they were witnessing. Danielle looked stunning in her gorgeous gown. As Duke begin to tear up during his vows Danielle joined him with here own tears of joy too.

Their reception hall at Bella Collina was decorated gorgeously. The bride had selected just about every details of her decor to fit the vision she had for her wedding. They wedding vendors involved could not have executed her vision more perfectly. It was a gorgeous and romantic night that ended up with a wild and fun party full of dancing and laughter and delicious Rum Cake made by the mother of the bride. smile emoticon

Dear Danielle and Garth, or “Duke” as you are referred to by your close friends but also the name by which I first met you by. Thank you guys so much for believing in me and for allowing me to do my thing, but more importantly thank you for working with me to be able to do it. I am absolutely impressed by who you are, not only as a couple but as individuals. I am honor to have witness and capture your wedding day.
