Gabrielle and Andrew could not possibly be more beautiful. They are what the young people call ” couple goals”. During their engagement session I saw first hand how much they adore each other (and their sweet husky) and I knew that their wedding day was going to be perfect. I was right. The Barn at Villa Venezia provided the perfect clean, rustic yet glamorous vibe that Gabrielle was aiming for, aesthetically this wedding was right out of a magazine. Emotionally it was a fairy tale.
Andrew is one of those guys that is super serious yet down for a good time. He greeted me on the morning of the wedding with a big smile ready to see his girl. We laughed talking about how chaotic wedding planning can be and thrilled to be at the fun part. Gabrielle is my spirit animal. She is organized and neat with a very clear vision but is equally able to ” go with the flow”. Gabrielle has got to be one of the most stunning people both inside and out, she has the cutest little giggle which came out in little nervous bursts all morning. In a rare turn of events the morning of Gabrielle and Andrews morning could not have gone more smooth, take note staying on schedule wards off the madness.
The big tough guys are always the ones that cry. When Gabby came through the doors of the Church in an absolute burst of light Andrew lost it. It’s difficult to keep my vision clear when feelings are welling up in my eye balls, grateful for facial tracking because it was truly a highlight moment. Wedding day morning melt away into a party after my couple gets to finally see each other and that was true of Gabby and Andrew. They both just wanted to party and celebrate (and see the stunning transformation that the Barn at Villa underwent).
Gabrielle brought in an outside designer ( see vendor credits below) because true to Gabby style she needed something unique and stunning. I have shot at the Barn at Villa Venezia several times before but walking in this time literally took my breathe away. I am so thankful for stunning brides that work hard to create a dream aesthetic for their wedding. Gabrielle and Andrew are off to the best start a couple could ask for. Surrounded by supportive family and friends, set up in dream careers and tied together by a genuine love. I know this is just the beginning for them, congratulations !
