Many people ask me why I like to work taking wedding pictures, and my answer got reaffirm after shooting Catherine and Edoardo’s wedding. I love to capture memories and to tell the stories of love and happiness. When I asked Cat, as friends and family call her, to tell me about their story she said ” When I saw this man in a different light & in that moment I truly felt something penetrate through my soul”. As cheesy as it might sound, sometimes I envision it as cupid’s arrow hitting me straight in the heart.” and ” Edo remembers getting a strange feeling on his way to the marina that he’d be meeting his wife that day.”
Four years later it was a true honor and privilege to be part of Catherine & Edoardo’s Wedding day.
Catherine was truly stunning. Her wedding dress and veil were designed by Inbal Dror.
Their day was full of emotions from beginning to end. Unfortunately, when we arrived on scene it began to rain. Our luck would change for the better because just before the ceremony the clouds dried up and the rain stopped. We were fortunate to capture an unexpected guest to the wedding; a group of seagulls gliding over the ocean with a beautiful rainbow in the background.
The bride and the groom settled on an outdoor location in Thalatta Estates Palmetto Bay, Florida, a gorgeous venue that brides just fall in love with. It is a beautiful place that provides many opportunities to capture special moments, from the view to the ocean, the beautiful decorated arc where they got married , the elegant and very chic black and white decorations and the amazing chandeliers by Illumene were a perfect set up for many great shots. Catherine worked with “Devine Design by Guerdy “ very hard on every detail and all were stunning!
One of my favorite moments was during happy hour where I was able to capture the unexpected smiles, and laughter. This also the time where some professional dancers with amazing costumes and make up showed up for ” La hora Loca”. There performance was full of energy and color. Catherine, Edoardo, family and friends put on hats, masks and dance happily to the rhythm music. On top of that, the Chiva, a very Colombian typical bus, arrived and gave the guess a small taste of the Colombian culture and music.
Many beautiful and exciting memories were captured during this lovely wedding and a great beginning for a new journey.
Here are some of our favorite pictures that we would like to share with you.
Thank you Catherine & Edoardo for allowing us to be part of your special day!
GO HEATS!!!! :–)
