Weddings - and how each couple interprets this auspicious day - are constantly evolving to fit this modern day world, and the diverse couples formed within it. One of our favorite interpretations is in the form of elopements. The special intimacy, the raw power of the couple's bond and their private, almost secretive, exchanged glances - it just makes our hearts a-flutter with the love of love!
Elopements allow the pair to appreciate the comforts of a smaller wedding, filled with only those closest to their hearts.
Nancy and Anthony’s simple, elegant elopement wedding was the epitome of the exuberance two people in love experience on their special day, when free to have their dream ceremony, their way.
Many thanks to the talented Ken Viale, who was on hand to capture those special moments!
Nancy and Anthony on Vittorio’s Tower balcony, just moments before the ceremony.
The couple took an impromptu mid-ceremony break to have a brief video chat with their son who couldn’t be there in person, but managed to make an appearance nonetheless!
Close family members watched in anticipation as bride and groom slid wedding rings onto each other’s intertwined hands.
Our courtyard lit up with vibrant smiles as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife!
What is more fitting than a unity wine pour at a winery wedding; the perfect blend of two lives, and families, becoming one.
Their young son, and ringbearer, was the first to make a toast to the newlyweds – with some delicious Gamay Rouge Grape Juice!
Congratulations, Nancy and Anthony!
