We asked our past brides via Facebook to upload their favorite portrait from their wedding and other Bella brides and fans would vote for their favorite. Congratulations to Jamie and Matt who are our June winners. Their beautiful wedding is featured below!
How they met: Jamie and Matt met in college at a weight training class that they had both randomly signed up for. "Matt tells everyone I gazed into his eyes the first time I saw him!"
The proposal: Matt proposed to Jamie in their home they had bought together during Easter weekend. "It was perfect because we had all weekend to celebrate with friends and family"
The Wedding: They had a very intimate wedding (only 85 guests!) at a gorgeous castle which had always been one of Jamie's dreams! "Our wedding day was perfect! It called for rain all day but luckily, the weather held out as most of our plans were outside! It rained for about ten minutes during the reception just for good luck"
On Bella Pictures: "Working with Bella was absolutely perfect! I can't even tell you how many compliments we got about our photographer that day. He was fabulous to work with! We love our photographs so much and couldn't be happier :)"
Funny story about the wedding day: "Our ceremony was short and sweet. I thought I would cry more than I did but as soon as I saw Matt I was nothing but perfectly happy. I only choked up once, right before I said for richer or poorer. Matt told me he thought I just didn't want to say poorer!"
We asked our past brides via Facebook to upload their favorite portrait from their wedding and other Bella brides and fans would vote for their favorite. Congratulations to Brianna and Thomas who are our September winners. Their beautiful wedding is featured below!
How they met: They met at Starbucks! Thomas worked there for years and Brianna was a regular customer who had her eye on him for a long time. "I finally had the courage to start talking to him during my regular visits and we instantly hit it off. We quickly started dating and 4 years later became husband and wife."
The proposal: Thomas proposed during a week-long trip to Rome, Italy! "He surprised me in the middle of the week with a trip to Venice. After a romantic dinner and stroll around St. Mark's Square, Thomas proposed in front of St. Mark's Cathedral at Midnight. Thomas asked me to marry him in Italian so at first I was a little confused, but then he got down on one knee with the ring and tears of joy came flowing. It was a moment we will both never forget. We went back to our hotel called all of our close family and friends and celebrated with a glass of Prosecco."
The Wedding: Brianna & Thomas were married in a traditional Catholic church by the bride's father! Then they, and 130 of their closest friends and family, headed over to the Penn Oaks Golf Club for the reception. "We choose Penn Oaks due to beautiful ballroom and spacious outdoor patio where the cocktail was held overlooking the 18th hole. It was the perfect venue for a summer wedding."
On Bella Pictures: "Bella Pictures was wonderful to work with. Our photography consultant always got back to us promptly when we had questions and made sure we were being matched with a photographer who fit our style. Our photographer was amazing. There are so many pictures from our wedding that captured the sentimental moments so perfectly. Our Photographer worked so hard in getting all the key shots we wanted plus some fun ones to add to the album. We have already gotten so many compliments on the quality of our pictures."
We asked our Bella Brides on Facebook to participate in our monthly Real Wedding Contest. The participants uploaded their favorite portraits to our fan page, and everyone voted for their favorite. Congratulations to Kasey & Glenn who are our December winners! Their wedding is featured below:
