PERFECT FROM START TO FINISH, CHELSEA AND MICHAEL'S WEDDING DAY WAS A LIKE FAIRY TALE COME TRUE.
Chelsea and Michael got married in December at historic Benvenuto Restaurant, which is a beautiful venue in Boynton Beach. They had their ceremony at St. Rita Catholic Church, which is their the local church. It was the most beautiful wedding and every detail was perfect from start to finish!
Chelsea and Michael met at FSU’s marching band. He proposed to her right on the band’s marching field where they first met.
Chelsea wore a princess style dress and Michael wore a classic tux with a white tie and vest and they looked so incredible. Chelsea’s dress was absolutely stunning and Michael’s suit was so dapper.
Chelsea and Michael’s wedding was just the happiest occasion and everything I love about weddings. Here’s their gorgeous wedding!
Chelsea got ready at her parents' home with her parents and bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was so calm. After her mother and sister helped into her princess gown, she had a first look with her doting father. The bride then rode in a limousine to get to the ceremony. Michael got ready at his home with his groomsmen and parents. He travelled to the ceremony by limousine excited to see his bride walk down the aisle.
The ceremony was a beautiful service in their local church in Wellington, FL. The church was peaceful and spacious with light during through the stainless windows. During the ceremony they had several beautiful readings from friends and family. It was so meaningful and such a personal service.
The reception was in a chandelier adorned ballroom at Benvenuto Restaurant. They chose the venue because it’s where they always wanted to have their wedding and it has so many memories. It was a fairy tale theme wedding, which was a pleasure to document. I love shooting Benvenuto weddings because the surroundings are so pretty. The venue has several gardens throughout the property making it not only a beautiful backdrop for a wedding day but a stunning location for photos.
They a cocktail hour in the afternoon, and lavish 5 course dinner in the evening. They decorated the venue with wintery decor and romantic lighting, because it was a winter wedding.
The most memorable part of the day was during the first dances, because they were so lovely and touching. Grandpa held on to the bride so tightly with many tears of joy for her day. They also had a unique martini ice sculpture during the party – it was very clever!
