So I almost titled this one "the royal wedding!!" When I joined the getting ready room the morning of their wedding, I kept hearing the ladies say that Valentina was Kate Middleton. I'll have to agree I see the resemblance!! :D It wasn't long until we all were calling their wedding day the royal wedding!!
Valentina and Robert actually met and fell in love in the same place they were married, the Georgetown University campus!! A friend of theirs (who was also a bridesmaid!) introduced them freshman year and the rest was history. The campus, DC, and Georgetown canal hold so many memories for them and now they can add their wedding day to that list!!
In fact, when we were photographing the bridal party portraits they joked about it finally being their turn. They had seen so many bridal parties taking pictures on campus over the years and now it was them!! Needless to say, being able to be in a place that was so near and dear to their hearts added a layer of sentiment to their wedding day that cannot be described!
One of my favorite parts of Valentina and Robert's wedding day was getting to meet their families. Much of Valentina's family lives in Italy and made the long journey over seas for the wedding and most of Robert's family hails from Louisiana. While their families reside thousands of miles apart, they compliment each other so well! Both have this loving loud energy that is infectious!!
Valentina and Robert, thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers! We have loved getting to know you both, your love story, and all the wonderful people who you hold near and dear to your hearts! I hope you enjoy our favorites from your wedding day!
They were so much fun!!
