When we shot their engagement portraits, I knew they were going to be totally fun to work with on the wedding day-- Dave is one of those "can't stop smiling because I'm a happy guy!" guys, and it was clear from the start that he and Belinda thoroughly enjoy one another's company. It was no different on the wedding day! Surrounded by family and friends, they said their vows and became husband and wife : ) After the formal portraits were done, I kept the newlyweds behind for a few portraits together. Dave was doing something, or talking to someone... and I had placed Belinda in one of the arches near the courtyard at St. Anne. Dave turned around and had one of those take-his-breath-away moments as he looked at his stunning bride standing there all glorious in the arch, saying, "Oh wow... look at that... wow!"
*awwww* You just can't help but get some serious warm fuzzies around this couple and their families.
There was so much happiness in the room at the reception! After dinner and toasts the party started as the dancing picked up. The champions of the Anniversary Dance--a couple who had been married for 55 years-- were a sight to see as they danced around, proclaimed their 55 years to the DJ, and celebrated with a kiss. The newlyweds made their way around the room visiting with guests, cut their cake, and then hit the dance floor themselves to round out the evening's festivities.
Congratulations Belinda & Dave! I hope Hawaii treated you well ; )
Many thanks to Haley and the En Vogue Events staff for the referral, and for planning/coordinating such a beautiful celebration!
