Love Stories, Weddings

Bre and Jimmy are Super Special to Me

Bre and Jimmy are a super special couple to me because Bre helped plan my own wedding back in June 2021. She was an incredible resource, providing guidance and support throughout the planning process. I am so grateful I had her help and it was an honor to be able to return the favor by capturing her special day. It’s not often you get the opportunity to work with someone you respect and admire as much as I do Bre. I was truly thrilled to be a part of her and Jimmy’s wedding.

Party Perfection at Fortino Winery

The Fortino Winery was the perfect venue for Bre and Jimmy’s special day. With its beautiful outdoor setting and charming rustic charm, it was the perfect backdrop for the couple’s nuptials. The ceremony took place under a stunning floral arch designed by Expressions Floral Designs, with Friday Flowers adding additional pops of color throughout the venue.

Additionally, the reception was held in the winery’s event space, decorated beautifully with rentals from Chloe’s Vintage Rentals. An ice sculpture by Chisel It Ice added a unique touch to the reception, and the dance floor was packed all night thanks to a live band.

Personal Wedding Details

Bre and Jimmy’s wedding was full of personal touches that made the day extra special. Bre wore a stunning lace dress from Elegant Lace, while Jimmy looked dapper in his tuxedo from Tuxedo Fashions. The couple exchanged heirloom gifts before their first look, adding a sentimental touch to the day.

One of the most touching moments of the day was Bre’s dance with her mom, who was celebrating her birthday on the same day as the wedding. The couple also had a first look including Bre’s dad, brother, and grandparents. It added a special layer of emotion to the day.
