Living in Atlanta and being a destination wedding photographer, I am ALWAYS open to the idea of traveling out of state to photograph special moments! When Sibany asked me to photograph her wedding in Florida, I could not say no. Florida has a special place in my heart because that is where I grew up when I moved to the US from Ecuador.
I went to high school with Sibany, and my favorite memory with her is when we had a little party at my house and we dressed up. I never thought that I would be the person to capture this incredible day that she will always reflect back on.
Sibany and Danny's wedding at the Haile Plantation in Gainesville, FL is one I won't forget. Their ceremony took place at the Queen of Peace Parish, and it's one of the prettiest churches I have ever seen! The light and the colors were gorgeous in there. The theme of their wedding was "Starry Night" and even the church's ceiling reflected that thought.
Their closest friends and family celebrated along with them, and the happiness was so obvious throughout the whole day. My favorite part were the photos of the two of them alone (bride & groom photos are always my fave!). We walked around the Hail Plantation, and found some beautiful greenery. Even though it was very hot (Florida summers are no joke), they embraced every moment, not letting the small things get in the way of enjoying their day.
Also, this has to be the most fun I have seen people have during the reception. A lot of hispanic music was played and I thoroughly enjoyed it! (I love salsa!). Everyone was dancing so freely without a care in the world!
Sibany and Danny, no one deserves this beautiful day more than the two of you. The happiness that I witnessed melted my heart, and I am so thankful for your trust! I hope your new life is full of adventures and love.
