Nature Filled Wedding by George Street Photo & Video Exudes Classic Romance
A Youtube vlogger, Hanh was no stranger to socializing online, but she had trepidations about opening an OK Cupid account. Good thing she took the leap, because her first-ever online date with now-hubby Matt blossomed into a storied, classic romance. He even proposed by hacking into her Youtube account! We were lucky enough to shoot the couple’s open-air wedding, held at Crystal Gardens in Howell, MI. Despite Hanh and Matt’s digital history, their wedding day was all about nature, highlighted by light and airy touches of soft color and romantic detail.
Hanh and her bridesmaids got ready together at a nearby Hilton. Each had their own custom-bedazzled pink and white silk robes. The group clinked champagne glasses to toast the bride after hair and makeup was complete. Hanh wore a classic white wedding dress with feminine tulle that she complemented with a bouquet of blush and cream roses, while her bridal party donned flowing, pale-pink gowns and held white baby’s breath bouquets. The groom and his men sported shades of dark navy and light-gray ties for an overall soft and understated color palette.
Al Fresco I Do’s
Before the big moment, the couple had a “first look” for photos. Matt was thrilled to remove his blindfold, revealing his beautiful bride. The outdoor ceremony was classic and simple, held against a beautiful natural backdrop of lush greenery. To symbolize the blending of their two lives into one loving union, the couple combined wine from separate glasses into one. Mr. and Mrs. Di Bari happily walked up the aisle as their family and friends blew bubbles around them.
Nature Filled Wedding Reception
The newlyweds and their 150-some guests headed back inside for the reception. The classic, romantic style continued with a rose-adorned cake and baby’s breath centerpieces. After the wedding party and parents of the bride and groom—and of course the couple of honor—made their entrances, guests danced the night away to a DJ. Delicious caramel candies made by the groom’s mother were served as sweet favors.
It was such a lovely wedding and we’re thrilled to have been a part of their beautiful day. Capturing the photos that will forever hold the memories of their wedding romance was simply delightful. Congratulations Hanh and Matt!
