I love weddings. I really do. I’m just utterly, hopelessly, a pure romantic I think. I can’t help it, each wedding is so special in its own right. I love seeing what’s important to the bride and groom on their day. I love hearing the stories of how the bridal party became friends. I love the tears from dad when he sees the bride for the first time. Those, and every other moment. I. Just. Love. It.
This wedding took place at the Newport Beachside Hotel + Resort on beautiful North Miami Beach. They held their ceremony right on the end of the pier, which obviously was just so beautiful. It’s hard to beat being in the middle of creation and not that south Florida has any ugly beaches, but the beaches in North Miami are pretty spectacular. I loved their ceremony. You could just tell they put a lot of thought and planning into it. Plus, I’m such a beach girl anyway so to watch such a beautifully done ceremony and feel like you’re standing in the middle of the ocean while it’s going on… Um, yes please.
One of my favorite things about Janelle and Gabriel was how completely surrounded by friends and family they were. You could tell that relationships were really important to them. It was reflected in the way they interacted with their guests and the way they surrounded themselves with family. It was really neat. Oh, and Janelle!! Stunning, she was a stunning bride. So completely relaxed and enjoying her day. There are so many things that are important to know going into your wedding planning, but when I’m asked one of those, ‘the most important piece advise’ kind of questions, I always come back to telling the bride, enjoy it. It will go by so fast and all those little details that you could stress about are just not worth it. Relax and enjoy every moment of your wedding day. That was Janelle, she was so timeless and just floated through her day.
Such a privilege to be a part of their beautiful day.
