Wallace & Sanjuana - Plantation Hall Wedding - Gainesville, FL
Updated: Jan 7
Have you ever met someone for the first time and the conversation just naturally flows like you'd been friends for quite some time? That's exactly how I felt when I met Wallace and Sanjuana for the first time on FaceTime. We went right into chatting like we were buddies and I knew right then we were a great fit. Great connection equals great photos.
Wallace and Sanjuana chose to say their "I do's" at Plantation Hall at Haile in Gainesville, FL. They were married in front of the tranquil fountain at Haile Village Center, it made such a lovely back drop. I have photographed A LOT of weddings over the past 4 years, but I have to say this one was nearly perfect. We stayed ahead of schedule, it was the shortest ceremony in history, there were so many picturesque locations to photograph in, the bridal party consisted of just 4 people which made everything less complicated, and above all the entire day was filled with pure joy and happiness. Jonathan of Genius Entertainment rocked the house and Gordy of Limerock Road served a delicious meal of herb roasted prime rib and marinated chicken with pineapple salsa.
I had several favorite moments of the day:
First look. Sanjuana looked absolutely stunning and Wallace was so emotional when he laid his eyes on his bride.
The Rings. While I couldn't hear exactly what was being said at the altar, I did notice some serious hesitation from the adorable 5 year old ringbearer to hand over the rings. He was so precious.
The Song. Wallace surprised Sanjuana, and well everyone for that matter, by serenading her with Perfect by Ed Sheeran. Well done sir.
The 2nd Best Man's toast. Yeah Demetrius, I'm looking at you with your unexpected four letter word and getting so choked up with emotion you couldn't continue to speak. The toast was truly on the fly and from the heart.
Congratulations Dr. and Mrs. Nozile! Thank you again for allowing me to capture your big day, it was an honor and so much fun. Blessings to you both as you enter into this next chapter of your lives.
