On Saturday, Septemeber 29th, 2012, Da Vinci, The Art of Photography, was on hand to document the Ricardo-Warnet wedding in lovely Ocean Gate, NJ. With a beautiful day and a clear night the wedding was picture perfect for photos!
The day started out with photos before the ceremony at the bride and grooms house. Jeff Warnet, the Groom, along with his Reverand and Groomsman John Grabowski were enjoying the festivities as Jesse began to document the day. Da Vinci was on hand to capture funny poses and many laughs before photographing Tia Lyn, the lovely bride. Both Tia's Bridal party members were getting ready as Jesse and Alex pulled up to capture all of their pre-wedding fashion routines. The photos of Tia Lyn getting ready along with her sister / Maid of Honor Kaidie Ricardo and her Bridesmaid Courtney Torok were priceless! All of the Bridal Party and parents wore Tia's favorite flower: the sunflower in a gorgeous bouquet. Jesse used these flowers as well as other wedding accessories to capture stunning photos of the bride before moving to the Ocean Gate Yacht Club for the ceremony.
Even before the bride made her way down to the beach Da Vinci was in action photographing every aspect of the day; from the starfish beach stakes to the custom made bridal dress for the bride. Tia looked marvelous as she descended the stairs of the Yacht Club to meet her soon to be husband by the water for their ceremony. Jesse and Alex were snapping away as the short ceremony came to close, followed by the reception. After a few toasts, songs and dances the recepetion was over just as soon as it started, but not before Jesse and Alex were able to capture all the wonderful memories forever.
Once in a while we're reminded that God has created a beautiful world in which we have the privalage to live in. This came to me a few years back during the marvelous Lunar Eclipse my 10 yr. old daughter reminded me of , in which I woke my two sons 8 & 9 yrs. old at about 10:30pm to catch a glimpse of the spectacular view. I quickly grabbed my camera and although I didn't have the correct equipment available to me I was able to capture this memorable image. I would like to share this image to remind you that in today's busy and crazy world that we live in we occasionally have to stop and take a moment to look around at this marvelous world we call home. Bella Luna :-)
