Jon & Susannah // Victoria Wedding Photography

Picture this: a beautiful garden villa, an amazingly sunny gorgeous day with not a cloud in the sky, a fun loving and easy going group of people and two people crazy in love. That pretty much sums up Jon & Susannah’s wedding day. I loved their concept – a daytime garden wedding followed by a BBQ lunch with friends and family. It was intimate, casual and just perfect.   There is something so special about the way Jon can make Susannah laugh on cue - I loved watching them together throughout the day.  Here are some of my favorites from their wedding. 

Whenever I get to shoot at the stunning Villa Marco Polo I'm such a happy girl.  The staff, the location, it's a dream!

These stunning florals were done by Susannah's Aunt - what talent!  And they smelled AMAZING.

Any bride who wears Converse underneath her wedding dress is A ok in my books.

After the portraits, we headed back to the Villa Marco Polo for the lunch reception.

The bride and groom's friends and family had a special surprise for them during the reception. They made a medley of songs with their own lyrics and did a little skit on the progression of their relationship. It was awesome!

Susannah is a baker and made these cupcakes.  These were hands down THE BEST CUPCAKES I HAVE EVER HAD. Jon you are a lucky, lucky man.
