Marissa’s whole face softens when she looks into Fernando’s. She can’t help but smile that warm, dimpled smile. When Fernando looks into Marissa’s, his eyes light up and twinkle; his smile is bright and so is his spirit. Two different reactions that convey the exact same emotion–deep love. Not just any love, but the kind that can change a person so much on the inside that it can’t help but show itself on the outside. That’s the kind of love Marissa & Fernando have for each other.
A line Marissa penned in her letter to Fernando that was read during their ceremony will say it better than I ever could: “I feel like the Grinch when his heart grew 3 times when I talk about our love.” That soft look on Marissa’s face when she’s with him, that sprightly smile on Fernando’s–those are mere representations of the internal swelling of their hearts.
Marissa & Fernando married at the gorgeous Walnut Grove and we simply felt lucky to have been a part of their wonderful day. Many thanks to Coordinator Michele Spring of Mia Bella Weddings for being such an enormous help in making sure the day flowed smoothly. M & F–thank you. Thank you for allowing us to capture your joy, your love & your memories. You are simply a wonderful duo and so clearly a perfect match. Here’s to your hearts swelling together forevermore… :) -A & N
