A Coastal Wedding at Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel

A few months ago I had the honor of capturing Stephanie and Matt’s wedding at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach. After a fun time photographing the bride and bridesmaids getting ready {and all the pretty coastal details}, Stephanie and Matt had their first look.  It is always one of the most emotional parts of the day, and I encourage all my couples to consider this option if they don’t mind seeing each other before the I do’s.

The weeding ceremony took place at St. Anthony Catholic Church surrounded by family and friends. Back at the Sonesta, we captured the family formals and bridal party photos. Then it was time for the bride and groom portraits which included their pup Pumba. Stephanie and Matt are one of the sweetest couples ever, and their pup is just adorable.

Their day was filled with love and happiness, dance and laughter.

Until the next seaside-venture,

Diana

A Timeless Wedding at Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Some of you have been lucky to meet your soulmates early in your lives; others like me, have had to wait a little longer. That’s in short the story of Rita and Monty.

Rita has the most genuine smile I’ve ever seen, and Monty can’t keep his eyes off of her. Last Spring I had the pleasure of photographing their timeless love story at the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society.  Their wedding celebration was flawless; with beautiful soft green and peach decorations and the cutest of wedding guests {see the ducklings making an entrance}.

We started the day with a heartfelt first look, one of my favorite moments of the night. Then they sealed their commitment in a ceremony filled with love. The night continued with first dances and toasts, and ended with everyone dancing around the newlyweds.

Rita and Monty’s wedding reminded me that the Universe’s timing is just perfect; when our hearts are ready and open, the right person walks right into our lives.

Wishing them a lifetime of happiness and until the next timeless–venture,

Diana

Engagement, Fort Lauderdale

Engagement Session at Las Olas Riverfront, Fort Lauderdale, FL.

What is sweeter than a couple in love? Well, nothing is, unless they bring bubbly and rosé to their engagement session. Also, the gazebos around Las Olas Riverfront are to die for and I can’t wait to be back.

Join me in congratulating Caitlin and James in their recent commitment. We had a blast during their Fort Lauderdale engagement photo session and I am beyond excited to share a bit of their gallery.

Until the next cheers-venture,

Diana
