College sweethearts Dani and Blake have always been passionate about sharing new experiences together, and those memories have led to their dream wedding. This ceremony, full of love and joy, fully captured Dani and Blake's deep bond. This day started when Blake proposed to Dani in his family's hometown of Anna Maria Island in Florida, a place full of fond memories for both of them. Bathed in the sunset sky and surrounded by close friends and family, Blake asked Dani to be his wife, creating the perfect moment to start their dream wedding.
The location of the wedding was Comber Hall in Coral Gables, Florida, a historical site including a church and ballroom built in 1926. The beautifully detailed architecture and stunning landscape along with the white ballroom for the reception was a wonderful match to the sacred and bright future ahead for the couple. The church held the wedding ceremony, complete with a wide-open stage and towering ceiling; a truly unique location including many wonderful panning shots from the audience to the couple, showing them highlighted by the stage while surrounded by those they love. The overall color theme stayed close to white, with hints of sage green on the groomsmen and pale pink from the bridesmaids. This pink tied into the bride’s bouquet of pale pink roses.
Included in the video was a voice-over of each other’s vows as we see the bride and groom get ready for the ceremony to begin, and even includes a special emotional moment of both reading notes from one another. There is graceful movement throughout the pictures and video, showing the bride descending the stairs, dancing with the two, the couple walking toward each other, and the bridal party moving down the aisle. Elements from outside, including palm trees, lush grasses, and even a water fountain, framed the couple beautifully. The gentle island breeze even made still shots outside come to life.
The reception was held in the ballroom adjoining the church, with bouquets of white and pale pink roses hanging from the rafters above white tables with bulb lights crisscrossing the space. In this room, speeches from the family, bridesmaids, and groomsmen were shared, resulting in an emotional and heartfelt moment of rejoicing and highlighting Dani and Blake’s special bond. In the video, these speeches were mixed in with different moments from the night, including shots of the reception, private shots of the couple, dancing on the floor, and cutting the cake. The dance floor soon became a very festive and lively sea of people, including artistic dancers with a white masquerade theme dancing to the beat of drums, adding to the celebratory atmosphere.
Dani and Blake, it was a pleasure celebrating with you, and best wishes in your journey onward together.
