Romantic Garden Wedding at Bella Vista Groves // Sun & Sparrow 2020 // Fine Art Destination Wedding Photographers
As we were awoken by the faint scent of freshly brewed coffee, we were reminded that our day had finally arrived. A year’s worth of planning was coming to fruition and gravity of the day began to sink in, as we sipped on our coffee. Due to the unpredictable events that happened in 2020, countless decisions and pivots were made as we planned for this day. We were both anxious and nervous, knowing that this would not be a traditional wedding ceremony with all of our extended families and friends by our side. However, we knew we had the blessings of all of our loved ones and we were ready to officially tie the knot. This day signified the beginning of a new chapter for both of our lives, one that will undoubtedly be filled with love and joy.
From the groom (Eric): Leading up to the first look, I was filled with eagerness and nerves. The minutes waiting for Mandy to walk out the doors behind me felt like hours, however looking at my stunning soon-to-be wife was worth the wait. I had no idea what Mandy would look like in her wedding dress, I just knew she would be beautiful regardless (and I was right).
From the bride (Mandy): When it was finally time for me to sneak up behind Eric for our first look, a feeling of nerves mixed with excitement swirled in my stomach. I tried to remain calm, but I could feel my heart race as I walked towards Eric. When Eric finally turned around and our eyes met, a flashback of all the memories we had created together came rushing to my mind. From the good to the bad, we had already experienced so much together and I felt so lucky to be standing in front of my lifelong partner, whom I was ready to create more memories with.
The day of our wedding was truly a perfect day and we felt like royalty. Our amazing planner and vendors made our vision come true. From the florals down to the table linen, everything was magical. We are so grateful to have amazing photographers, Sun & Sparrow, capture every moment and detail so that we could relive our fairytale moment over and over again.
