Crystal + Bruno - Intimate Backyard Wedding

Well... where can I begin with these two? You know how sometimes you meet people and you can just tell that they're meant to have a positive impact in your life? That's exactly how I feel about Crystal and Bruno.  A few months back, Crystal reached out to me inquiring about my wedding collections and after some e-mails, we scheduled their engagement session. We went to Matheson Hammock and had such an amazing and fun shoot. I could literally tell right away that we were like long lost friends. Bruno was so chill too and went with the flow of everything... it was organic and I honestly was so happy with their images. I was able to capture their laughter, their love, their chemistry. I felt SO blessed when they chose me to document their wedding as well.

Later on, I met with Crystal at a Barnes + Noble to discuss wedding details and I truly felt like I was grabbing coffee with an old friend and "catching up". We laughed a lot and it was awesome. Bruno + Crystal just "get me" and my sometimes ridiculous sense of humor (LOL yes, I can be a goofball sometimes). I am not going to go into too many details here (though Crystal knows the whole story) but I remember I had a dream right before their wedding... all I will share here is that I was shooting their wedding and I truly felt like I was a guest, not just a vendor, and cried and felt all the feels through it all. And when it actually came to it, it truly was like that. I felt like I was there capturing it all for my amazing friends. 

So how did Crystal + Bruno meet? This is what Crystal shared with me: Bruno and I met through Instagram. We had mutual friends and found each other through there. We started hanging out as friends but of course we instantly fell for each other and there was no denying that. We were inseparable and had the same goals and values in life. What I love most about Bruno is how humble and loving he is and how he always tries to push me to do better and go after more. He is a great son, brother, uncle and friend. He loves my family as I do and there is nothing that means more to me than that. He is a hard worker and never a quitter.

For fun, they enjoy cruising, road trips to Disney, hanging out with their super adorable dog, family get-togethers, hanging out at Wynwood, trying out new restaurants and watching Star Wars movies (yes, they're #starwarsnerds as evidenced in some of the photos I'm about to share with you LOL)

Anyway... I am humbled to be sharing their story below ... the beginning to an amazing new chapter in their lives together. The chapter that begins with a man and a woman that are so deeply in love and that now get to spend their forever together. I wish these two amazing humans a life filled with God's many blessings! Cheers!
