We have waited a long time to visit Villa Antonia. We have heard about how beautiful of a venue it is and have seen lots of pictures. Now we finally had our chance to take pictures there! And, we were so happy to be able to share our first visit to Villa Antonia with Brittany and Hunter. We didn't have the opportunity to meet with them prior to the wedding. I had worked out all of the details with Brittany's mother, Patsy. She was always so nice and gracious and made the long distance organization of Brittany and Hunter's wedding as easy as possible. Knowing how nice Patsy was, we knew that Brittany would be super nice, as well. And, we were right! Brittany was so kind and appreciative of our work. She told us several times throughout the evening how thankful she was for all of our hard work. That is always nice to hear! :-) Hunter might not be a man of many words, but that doesn't mean that he wasn't nice, too. Hunter was polite and respectful all evening and we enjoyed spending time with he and Brittany.
Brittany and Hunter's wedding was inside (something we were thankful for because it was HOT outside) and the ceremony hall was beautiful! There was a violin player playing as their guests arrived. It fit in perfectly with their formal wedding. The bridesmaids and groomsmen made their way to the front of the hall. In the back of the hall were huge wooden doors. When it was time for Brittany to enter, the doors slowly opened to reveal Brittany with her father. It was a beautiful moment!
After the ceremony, we had to work fast. Between the end of the ceremony and the start of the reception, we had to get pictures of family, bride and bridesmaids, groom and groomsmen, wedding party, and Brittany and Hunter together. It was a tall order, but we got it done. And, the pictures are awesome! Of course, everywhere we looked at Villa Antonia there were great places to take pictures. That certainly made our jobs easier. We love Brittany and Hunter's pictures! We asked them if we could have just a few more minutes and they said yes. We were so thankful for their patience with our pictures. Once we finished with all of the pictures, the fun part of the evening started. The toasts to Brittany and Hunter were very kind and it was great to see so many friends and family there to celebrate with them.
Brittany and Hunter, thank you for allowing Elena and I to be a part of your wedding day. (Patsy, thank you for helping with all the logistics before the wedding.) We had a wonderful time. We wish you both many years of happiness together!
