An emotional family connection at this elegant Vizcaya wedding.
Paola and Justin were married at the end of last year with a ceremony and reception at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens.
Paola and Justin had it all during their wedding day—romance, architecture, love, and an amazing party! After their beautiful formal engagement session at Vizcaya, , I knew their actual wedding day would be nothing short of amazing.
When I arrived, Paolo looked stunning already in her Madison James gown, complete with a lace bolero to accentuate her timeless style. I photographed an emotional “getting ready” series with her parents before Paola and her father arrived at Vizcaya in style in a vintage Rolls Royce. I couldn’t have asked for them to set the stage any better—a gorgeous bride, a vintage car, Vizcaya’s breathtaking architecture, a magical garden setting, and Justin in his tuxedo with tails unable to hide his emotion!
Once the sun set over the gardens, the ceremony began with the most beautiful rendition of Ave Maria—which brought tears to Paola’s father’s eyes. Everyone present could see the true joy they shared as they were pronounced husband and wife; all the guests were emotional as they began their recessional down the aisle toward their reception
Because I’d photographed Paola’s sister’s wedding a year ago, I knew this party was going to be amazing. I was just waiting for her father to get up on stage and rock it out with the band, Remix! As much fun as it is to see a couple enjoying themselves at a wedding, it’s also a blast to see all the guests and family members getting involved in the party! That included the fabulous and colorful Hora Loca at the end of the wedding day.
Thank you, Paola & Justin, for having grace, a classic style, and a true joy throughout your wedding day!
