I could not wait to share Hanna and Ivan’s Casa Monica wedding day here in St. Augustine, Florida! They are such a sweet and genuine couple. Their ceremony was so special! Ivan is Hispanic and Hanna is American. They translated their ceremony and the wedding speeches in both Spanish and English. Hanna surprised Ivan by saying her vows in Spanish! His reaction was so cute and sweet! This was such an incredibly heart warming wedding.
Before the ceremony, as Hanna was getting ready, her mom gave her a card with a Cinderella carriage on the front. She told Hanna that today, she was the princess in the carriage because Hanna had dreamed of this day since she was little! Hanna absolutely looked like a fairytale dream! Her wedding dress from The Dressing Room had the most beautiful lace detail and couldn’t have fit her more perfectly. Her bridal makeup by Christina Burns, and her hair by Jackie at Mane Event Hair was true magic worthy of a fairy godmother! Hanna was stunning and Ivan was her perfect Prince Charming in is his tux from The Black Tux.
I absolutely love Casa Monica here in St. Augustine! It is such a beautiful wedding venue. The photos from this location are always a show stopper! You’ll never regret a Casa Monica wedding. Casa Monica Resort and Spa alongside a few other notable vendors including The Wedding Authority, Y? Entertainment DJ’s, Tula Rose Floral Event and Design, and Creme de la Cocoa pulled off the perfect wedding day for Hanna and Ivan.
We did Nights of Lights to wrap up their wedding day photos. Originally, we hoped to use a trolley for Hanna’s big day, but they were, unfortunately, unavailable for weddings during this season. We were able to still grab a photo of Hanna by the trolley as everyone passed by to celebrate the new happy couple. Hanna and Ivan spent their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic after their big day. This couple has a lot of fun and love in their future and it was such a joy to be a part of their story!
