Mary & Diego | Saint David's Catholic Church and Grande Oaks Gold Club Wedding

For today we're doing a #tbt blog post: Last fall I had the absolute honor of photography Mary and Diego as they tied the knot! Their Catholic ceremony at St. David's Catholic Church was so emotional and heartfelt - and yes, surprise surprise, I cried! My absolute favorite moment was capturing Diego's face as he saw his stunning bride for the first time - IT. WAS. MAGICAL. 

After the ceremony, we had the chance to take a little detour to Fort Lauderdale Beach so snag a few schnazzy bridal party portraits as well as some traffic-stopping shots of the couple on A1A (Thank you City of Fort Laudable Police Department for letting off with a warning!!!)

The festive reception was so beautifully curated at Grande Oaks Golf Club in Davie. The venues' endless rolling hills at their pristine golf course was the absolute perfect backdrop for some epicly awesome romantic portraits. And the reception room stayed packed all night with the entire guest list dancing their hearts out - they even had a Grease's Summer Nights sing-a-long that totally knocked it out of the park!

Thank you guys for allowing me to capture the essence of who you are and all the love you shared on your wedding day - from the lovely details to the romantic sparkler grand exit and Diego carrying Mary through the threshold!



PS. Major kudos to the groomsmen and 2 friends who made and set up the center pieces and table decorations
