These two decided to hold their destination wedding in one of our favorite locations in California and it did not disappoint!  First, the light that day was insanely beautiful but on top of that, the night featured a super moon!  The dinner area at the Firestone Vineyard is laden with windows and has one side completely open so guests can go mingle outside.  With the beautiful moonlight and the super pretty decor and cafe lights set up outside, it made for a beautiful evening atmosphere!  Just watch the magic:

It’s not every day that I get to share a wedding that was 99% in French yet took place in Italy! Check out these gorgeous (both inside and out) individuals as they get married in a romantic Italian villa setting. It was quite the gathering in Florence… Cannelle & Yvonnick are from Tahiti so they had friends and family come in from literally all over the world for their destination wedding!

So this wedding was a non-stop party – hence the title smile emoticon You might recognize the groom. He’s only the starting QB of the Detroit Lions . Kelly and Matt have an awesome love story and they are two of the most genuine and down to earth people we’ve ever worked with. The best part… they are so utterly in love and their wedding was an incredible celebration to honor that! More from the bride:

“Matthew and I met while he was in the middle of two-a-days for football and I was a new freshman there for two-a-days for cheerleading at the university of georgia. We went with a group to a movie and afterwards all decided to head back to the athletic dorms to hang out. Matthew and I stayed up talking that entire night. He was intelligent which is what drew me towards him. He had so much going for him, but yet was shy and humble which I believe is what drew me even closer. We remained friends for some time and then decided to commit to a real relationship. We spent the rest of his college career falling in love with each other. He moved to Michigan and we did long distance for a year and a half which was a huge test for us. He then asked me to move in with him up in Michigan. It was a huge step, leaving everything I knew and loved behind, but I felt like my heart was telling me he was worth it. I have never looked back. We have lived together for four years now and i feel like i know everything about this man and I fall deeper in love with him every day. I don’t go a day without him making me laugh”
