Every good love story deserves to be told. One fine day in the city of palms at La Casa Toscana, Fort Myers, Florida, we witnessed a love story reach their happily ever after. Or might I say—their beginning to a magical journey? Because that’s how it felt when Maria and Adam exchanged their vows at the stunning gazebo, surrounded by teary-eyed loved ones. It was very magical!
Prior to the big day, a dinner rehearsal was held at the beautiful outdoor space of the venue in preparation for the wedding to make sure things will run smoothly the next day! It was an elegant and intimate affair. The couple was joined by their closest friends and family, who all shared stories and laughs over a delicious meal. It was a sight that filled our hearts! Perhaps more than the beautiful details that adorned the space!
Speaking of details, if you know me, I’m a neutral girl. So when I found out we’ll be expecting neutrals for the rehearsals, I couldn’t contain my excitement! It was especially hard not to squeal when we were finally at the location and saw the shades white and brown filling the space. The Apostolic Wife and KP Event Design deserve all the applause for the design and florals, and ADR Decor for the candles!
I could go on and on about the decor, but nothing made our jaws drop more than the gorgeous couple themselves, Maria and Adam, who greeted their guests with linked arms. We were all gushing over their undeniable chemistry—and Maria looked stunning in her white gown! Of course, not wanting to pass up the occasion, we made sure to photograph them not only to optimize their experience but also to capture this day, the day before they legally share the same name!
And at-last, the day has come. You feel transported to another world the instant you enter the place. The ambiance is serene. It’s calm and quiet, yet full of life. Surrounded by towering cypress and palm trees with exquisite structures like columns, fountains, and a stunning gazebo, this Tuscan-inspired property is home to many picturesque backdrops, and we’re crazy for them!
See what I mean? We were sooo thrilled to explore the place but it doesn’t compare to how the bride and groom were feeling while they were getting ready! We sure felt their excitement while taking their getting ready shots! Who can blame them? To be married to your soulmate is definitely something worth looking forward to!
The wedding was conducted at the venue’s gazebo, which was beautifully decked with florals by KP Event Design. This portion was undoubtedly the highlight of the day for me as a photographer. The beautiful tunes played by Emma the Harpist and Jade Strings set the tone, making Maria’s trip down the aisle even more magical. But it was the special groomsman at the end of the aisle wagging his tail that drew our attention! Thanks to him, I may have let out a couple of “awwww”s!
This was such a gorgeous celebration. The weather was beautiful, the details were captivating, and the entire day was filled with so much love! This is why we do what we do!
Maria and Adam’s wedding was a dream come true. The couple’s vision of an elegant, romantic, and intimate affair was realized with the assistance of a talented team of vendors who ensured that every detail was in place! We loved seeing how their love story culminated in this celebration, and we hope you appreciate these photos as much as we did!
