Daniela & Brent got married on the most perfect October day, in Windsor, Ontario. Their ceremony was at St. Anne’s Church in Tecumseh and their reception was at Ciociaro Club of Windsor. Family is very important to Daniela and Brent, which was evident from the huge gathering of family at Daniela’s parents house in the morning and then their reception was held at the Ciocario Club of Windsor, because Daniela’s grandfather played an important role when it was created. We value family and this is one of the reasons we love shooting weddings. Thank you Daniela & Brent for letting us be a part of your day.
BOY MEETS GIRL
Brent and I have known each other since high school, but it wasn’t until University that our friend groups came together and we started spending more time with one another.
BOY FALLS IN LOVE WITH GIRL AND PROPOSES
On our way out to dinner we stopped at Brent’s sister’s house to “drop off” something for his niece. While we were there she asked me to come check out a photo setup she would be using for a client in the coming days (she has her own photo studio in the basement). She sat me down and started taking funny pictures to “check the lighting.” Little did I know, Brent had come downstairs and proposed to me right there and she captured the moment.
VENUE & LOCATION
St. Anne’s church has been the church I attended my whole life. Ciociaro Club is a special place for my family, because my late grandfather was so involved in its creation. It meant a lot to me to have my (traditional Italian) wedding there haha.
DANIELA & BRENT’S FAVOURITE MOMENTS
Saying, “I do” and feeling giddy and happy. I also loved when the dance floor filled up. It was our favourite part of the night to watch everyone let loose and have a great time.
DANIELA & BRENT’S FAVOURITE DETAILS
How simple it all was. Diane did such a great job with decorating and making the space feel elegant.
Invest in memories for your big day…like photographers, videographers, etc. It’s worth seeing those little snippets you may have missed. The most important thing is to make sure to enjoy yourselves as much as possible. At the end of the day, it’s a party for you two!
WHY DID DANIELA & BRENT CHOSE US TO PHOTOGRAPH THEIR LOVESTORY
For one, we loved how easy it was to get along with you both. You are such kind, warm people and it was easy to chat back and forth. Your communication skills were great and any questions we had you responded to in a timely manner. We also really liked your style…your pictures look “real.” They don’t look airbrushed or too posed. You made two people who aren’t super comfortable in front of a camera look and feel at ease, and that’s important!
WHAT FEELINGS DID YOU HAVE WHEN YOU SAW YOUR PICTURES FOR THE FIRST TIME?
We were so excited, happy, satisfied, and blown away. We loved having our friends and family come over and go through the pictures with them. It was so great! So many moments we didn’t even know happened until we got the pictures.
