A True Love Affair {J+G}

I love that feeling when you walk out of an initial meeting and think to yourself, I don’t want that couple, I NEED that couple. This is what happened when I met this beauty of a bride, Jenille.

I blogged earlier about the stunning Havana Nights bridal shower that took place in June and how much I adore her family throughout the planning. The overall feeling of excitement, love, and happiness that filled her parents home in Fairfax, VA during the getting ready stages set the tone for an absolutely amazing day! Nikki Frasier did an outstanding job making up all the bridal party!

I got to know this family very well over the planning process and was even invited into the coveted father’s cigar lounge. I love this photo of the bride perched on her father’s lap!

We rented a vintage Rolls Royce for the bride and her father to ride in to the ceremony at St. Aloysius. Juan Carlos from Fotobriceno was on hand all day to catch the magic!

Guiseppe and the boys meanwhile got ready at the St. Regis! The groom’s family got made up by Pattie Martin and Susie McNair. The groom rode to the ceremony in a modern Bentley with his best man and brother.

The ceremony was held at St. Aloysius, a stunning church in the city. Transportation was provided by the always reliable and courteous Linder & Associates. Guests filled the church in anticipation of the big moment! Absolutely an amazing and classic Catholic ceremony! Some that know me know my weakness for adorable kids and puppies. Particularly together. While the bride and groom’s puggle Pepe was at the kennel for his own big day- the adorable kids moment was captured!

 While many couples are nervous during the actual ceremony, this couple just looked totally at ease and in love.

After the I do’s, the bridal party was off to Merdian Hill Park for some pictures!
