Paola and Brian’s wedding was so much fun! We loved all of the sweet and intimate moments we were able to capture between Paola and her family while she was getting ready. Her mom and her sisters helped her into her dress, and then Paola had some special moments between her bridesmaids and her dad. We loved all the happy tears! Once all the ladies and adorable flower girls were all prepped and ready to go, we all headed over to the gorgeous coastal venue White Oak where the ceremony was only a short time away!
Between the beautiful work of Jerrye and her team, and the florals from Kickstand events, the venue looked spectacular! The guys were relaxed, but looking mighty dapper in their suits! Brian was trying to shake off the nerves that were gradually building as the reality and excitement of the wedding was hitting him, and we were getting excited right along with him! Both Brain and Paola picked their wedding party well, and had an awesome support group around them as they prepared for their wedding!
Soon all the guests were seated at the beautiful water front ceremony space overlooking the sound, and the bridal party began to enter! Brian couldn’t keep the smile off his face as Paola escorted by her dad made her way down the aisle! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for this wedding! Everyone watched with joy and smiling faces as they vowed their never ending love and commitment to one another! And just like that, they were pronounced husband and wife, and with a big dip Brian kissed his bride!
The day was far from over, though, and the party was just beginning! The newlyweds entered the crowd and danced for the first time as husband and wife as confetti filled the air in celebration! After a delicious dinner, the cake was cut and the Best Man, Maid of Honor, and Father of the bride gave incredibly heart felt toasts to the bride and groom! We love it when family and friends giving toasts speak from the heart and not just off the cuff!
NOW it was time to party! Brian and Paola barely left the dance floor along with all their guests both young and old! They danced the night away unlike any other couple we’ve met! After tons of dancing and fun, just when you thought everything was winding down, they cranked it up to eleven! It. Was. Crazy Hour! In Paola’s family’s culture, at weddings there is something called “Crazy Hour” and we had no idea what we were in for! Tambourine’s, feathered hats, crowns, masks, noise makers, shots! Crazy hour had it all! The music got wild and so did everyone else, haha!
To end this incredible night, and send the love birds off right, sparklers were lit and they were guided to their dock where they waved goodbye to all their friends and family from their very own boat! We are so happy for Brian and Paola, and we are so excited to share their wedding film with you!
