Denise and Anthony – what can I say. We hit it off immediately. Denise was referred to me by a sister of a former bride / close friend. Denise was such an easy bride – loved my input and suggestions throughout the whole planning process. I even learned along the way that her and Anthony met at a concert (The White Panda) which blew my mind because I had never met someone else who randomly knew who they were! Oh – and her Office obsession just made her an instant friend.
The morning of Denise and Anthony’s wedding day was wet to say the least. Denise being the chill girl that she is was not concerned at all. I started out with some details in her bedroom – I loved this snippet from her mothers wedding gown that was stitched by her own mother. I loved all of the dusty blue details throughout the wedding day. It matched perfectly with their rainy summer day. This ring was given to Denise by Anthony’s family. She wore it along with her other jewelry that day. Stunning florals as always by Sugar Magnolias! Matching flannels for the ladies (and disco ball cups for mimosas)Showing off the bling and how beautiful the flowers went with the Bridesmaids dresses. Fun fact! Denise opted to doing her own makeup! She even did some of her ladies makeup, too. Time to get ready with Mom! I also loved that subtle blue tint to Denise’s nail color. The veil was the final touch before taking portraits outside. I couldn’t believe the rain stopped just in time! Mom and Dad. The blushing bridesmaids. Seriously obsessed with these bouquets. So gorgeous. This tree in the backyard was the perfect backdrop for some portraits of Denise alone. I think it really brought out the color in her lips. Time for Anthony to get ready! How awesome is Anthony’s tux?! What a natural Anthony is in front of the camera. Finishing touches.. .He looks ready to go! I loved how Anthony had a blue tux with a black bowtie and the guys had black tuxes with a blue bowtie. It’s the little things. Some fun with the dapper groomsmen. Mom and Dad. Mom helping put on the boutonniere before Anthony heads on into the church!All smiles as Denise and Anthony see each other for the first time on their wedding day. The new Mr. & Mrs. Campos! A quick exit and we head on over to Harmony Vineyards for some bridal party and bride and groom fun!I love that dusty blue against the green vines – how stunning?!It happened to start raining on our 30 minute drive over to the vineyards, but once we got there the skies cleared up again! I couldn’t believe it. Just the two of them… I had never been to Harmony Vineyards before but let me tell you it is gorgeous. The vines themselves, the waterfront, and all of the greenery surrounding the property – right up my alley! You know what I LOVED most about this set? That Denise and Anthony not only remembered this pose from their engagement session but also use it regularly when taking photos together! The sweetest… Some snuggles in the vines. What a hidden gem right in St. JamesSome solo shots of the beautiful bride.The handsome groom and some umbrella fun – embracing the rain on their wedding day. Some more photos in the garden at Larkfield Manor. Everything was in bloom! Look at all these wonderful colors! Some final moments alone before lots of dancing and mingling. The garden at night, their room before the guests were invited in… Reception details! I loved their welcome sign and signature drinks. Denise made those otters – aren’t they just adorable?!Cigar bar and cordials for after dinner. Time to dance the night away! Aren’t they just precious?! Time for toasts! These toasts were full of Michael Scott quotes – I couldn’t stop laughing! Denise dancing with her proud father. Anthony dancing with his loving mother. Denise changed into an evening dress so she could dance all night on the dance floor – and she did!
