I don’t even know where to begin with these two. I can’t describe how much of an honor it was to document Stephanie and Rens’s Wedding in Umbria. Italy. They are so generous and full of the best energy. There were so many memorable and magical little moments that have stuck with me even months after this wedding. They decided to come over to Nikis Resort for the weekend to celebrate their love with their closest friend an family members. We spent the weekend swimming, eating, dancing and playing volleyball in the pool. It was amazing!
The night before the wedding everyone got together and we started their wedding during a relaxed poolparty and bbq dinner.
The next day I went first to Rens and his boy’s. A relax vibe with the boys and a beautiful moment when Rens was reading the personal handwritten letter from his bride. Then I went to the room where Stephanie and her bridesmaids and mothers got ready. The emotion you could feel just walking in the home was overwhelming with anticipation and love, there were lots of happy tears and group hugs. In the afternoon they said their ‘I do’s’ in the backyard, overlooking the green hills of Umbria. And on top of it we did an golden-hour shoot in the hills of Umbria just before dinner started. And of course the food and drinks were insane! Oh boy, enough said, let me show you what I am talking about!
