Amy + Dominic are all about family, so it was fitting that they got ready at their parents’ homes – and included their siblings, siblings’ spouses, and two of their nieces in their gorgeous wedding party! When I first met these lovelies last year for their engagement session, I instantly felt like I’d gained a couple of friends.
They’re the kind of people who truly care more for others than for themselves; even on their wedding day, Amy + Dominic made sure their friends and family (and photographers) were well looked after.
After a relaxing morning of getting ready, Amy and her ladies made their way over to Dominic’s parents’ home, where Amy + Dominic had their first look and a few pics with Nico (their best dog). Then the bridal party and their parents hopped on the party bus to the venue. The bubbly (served by Dominic) and music flowed on the fun ride to Swan-e-set Bay, one of the most stunning wedding venues around and the perfect setting for Amy + Dominic’s unique red and black Italian-inspired wedding.
The amazing tree-lined drive at Swan-e-set was the perfect backdrop for wedding party photos. Against the crisp fall foliage, the bridesmaids’ flowing crimson dresses and the groom and groomsmen’s sharp black suits with red vests made quite a statement. Even Amy’s stunning gown featured a touch of red, with a ribbon trim cascading down the back.
Following their short-but-sweet outdoor ceremony and family photos, Amy + Dominic made the grandest of grand entrances accompanied by fireworks! In a twist on the Shoe Game, Amy + Dominic were joined by their parents, Debora + Bruno and Edy + Mike. So fun!
The sweetest young lady caught Amy’s gorgeous bouquet, then the bridal party played a bit of a trick on Dominic before the garter toss. Finally, it was time for everyone to dance the night away!
Amy + Dominic, it was a dream to capture your wedding day memories. Thank you for having me along!
