It was meant to be.
They just knew.
Back in July, I asked Juliana how long she and Eddie had been together. She answered, “5 months…but 5 intense months…”
6 months later, they stood in front of their closest friends and family and vowed to turn those brief, intense months into a lifetime of love.
I have never seen a bride smile at her groom like Juliana smiled at Eddie, or a groom whisper sweet nothings into his bride’s ear so many times throughout the day. Every step Juliana took vibrated with excitement, her laugh dancing around all of us as she clapped and giggled her way through the day. Eddie’s quiet sweetness was the perfect companion to Juli’s radiance. They were two parts of a whole, completing each other.
Juliana and Eddie…thank you for letting me be a part of your day. Your love was beautiful to witness and I am so happy for you both. I hope you are having SO much fun in California! Much love to both of you. 🙂
I just couldn’t narrow the photos down any more, so you’ll get three posts for this wedding. First up, the First Look and some portraits…could these two be any more gorgeous together??
(Super huge thanks to my dear friend Sarah of Sarah Reed Photography for being my wonderful second-shooter!)
Juliana and Eddie love the elegant old architecture in the University Auditorium on UF’s campus, so we snuck in for a few minutes to take advantage of the warmth (it was FREEZING all day!) and the lovely light streaming in through the windows.
I couldn’t resist sharing a couple shots of the ring bearer and flower girl…do they come any cuter than this?
