Capturing Elegance: Victoria in the Park and Dominican University
Walk with me as I take you through the charming tale of Monika and Michal’s wedding day. You’ll get to experience their love story as if you were there. We’ll witness their elegant wedding day with beautiful romantic portrait location Dominican University and spanning Victoria in the Park as their wedding venue.
Their journey began on a dating app, and it led them to a day that was classy, elegant, and timeless.
The morning of the wedding was filled with heartwarming moments during the getting ready time. The couple wrote letters to each other, which brought a lot of joy and happy tears.
A Surprise Engagement in Iceland
Their love story started on a dating app, and their adventures took them all the way to Iceland. Michal planned a surprise proposal next to a waterfall, and Monika had no idea it was happening. This special moment amidst the pouring rain marked the beginning of their beautiful journey towards marriage.
A Love Story in Dark Emerald and Gold
Monika and Michal’s wedding was a vision of dark emerald/hunter green and gold. The flowers adorned in white and green perfectly complemented the traditional, classic, and elegant theme.
The day’s uniqueness lay in the couple’s belief that they are soulmates, and as long as they are together, their day would be perfect. A love story that transcends time and trends, their wedding day truly reflected their deep connection.
One of the most touching aspects was that they didn’t see each other until the ceremony, creating the perfect opportunity for capturing the emotional reactions of the groom and bride as they walked down the aisle.
The ceremony finished with a formal exit from the ceremony, where bubbles and ribbon wands filled the air with joy. Monika and Michal were joined by six bridesmaids and six groomsmen, creating a picture-perfect bridal party.
Dominican University: Capturing the Romance at the Fairy Tale Setting:
The photoshoot with the bridal party and the couple at the Dominican University campus was a dream come true. The campus, bathed in the beautiful, sunny light of the day, transformed into a picturesque setting that perfectly complemented the couple’s love story. The old, gothic-style buildings were adorned with lush green ivy, creating a stunning backdrop. The ivy wrapped around the exterior of the buildings, framed by the arches above the windows, added a touch of timeless elegance to the photos.
The play of light and shadows, combined with the charming architecture, created a captivating ambiance. Every snapshot I took against this charming backdrop felt like a page out of a fairy tale, where love and beauty were illuminated by the warm embrace of the sun. These photos are not just images; they are a visual testament to the enduring love Monika and Michal share, and they will be cherished for a lifetime.
Victoria in the Park:
The Grand Ballroom at Victoria in the Park was a vision of magic. The setting was just lovely, decorated with flowers and emerald and gold accents, and skillfully put together by a gifted family friend.
The room’s imposing tiered crystal chandeliers provided a warm glow that matched the room’s dark emerald and gold decor wonderfully. The couple’s entrance was nothing short of a fairy tale as they made their way down the grand curved staircase. The magnificent sight was framed by the two-story floor to ceiling windows. It was truly a scene out of a storybook as they danced for the first time in the middle of everything; it was like a dream come true.
A Choreographed Dance and Fiery Dessert Show
Their first dance was a choreographed masterpiece, a symphony of grace and love that left everyone in awe. As they swayed to the rhythm of “Glad You Exist” by Dan and Shay (Acoustic Version), it was as if time stood still. The elegance of the moment was only surpassed by what came next.
For dessert, they indulged in the magic of Bananas Foster, a sweet treat that perfectly matched the enchanting atmosphere of the evening. What made it even more special was the venue’s chef, who became an integral part of the entertainment. Center stage on the dance floor, the chef performed a captivating fire show, infusing the air with a sense of wonder. The flames danced in harmony with the couple’s love, creating an unforgettable spectacle and making for some truly cool photos that will forever capture the magic of their wedding day.
