Hi, I'm Emily.

We had the most beautiful day for Anna and Gabriels’ wedding! It was sunny and warm–unusually so for mid-October–and the leaves were still clinging on to the trees, triumphantly colorful.

I asked them both back at their engagement session when they knew this was forever. Anna said she knew after she invited him to spend Thanksgiving with her family, about a month after they first met. Both of their families have played an impactful role in their relationship. Anna’s family welcomed Gabriel with opened arms and their decision to marry happened directly after a text message from Gabriel’s father. “We have talked about the idea of getting married several times, but it happened on our flight back from Costa Rica. It was a conversation more than a formal proposal and I like that because, from the very beginning, we have been good about communicating with each other,” Gabriel said. They had just spent two weeks in Costa Rica traveling and meeting Gabriel’s family. After Gabriel’s dad dropped them back at the airport, he texted Anna saying that he hoped her and Gabriel would be in each other’s lives forever. “Gabriel and I had discussed getting married previously, but we seriously discussed it then.”

Anna and Gabriel met in 2020 and their first date was on Zoom (“It was a good way of first getting to see if we felt comfortable with each other before meeting in person, especially because, at that time, everyone was very careful about in-person contact,” Gabriel said.) Their second date was outside at a park.

“I think this was something that happened gradually,” Gabriel said. “I could see in Anna something more than someone I felt attracted to and who was my girlfriend. I could see in her a life partner because we work together very well, we share a vision of our future, and we support each other very much. Life is better since I met her.”

Their wedding details were all family pieces, which were so special. Their wedding bands were made from the gold of her grandparents’ wedding band. Her rosary, cross, earrings, and purse were all borrowed or handed down from generations before her. Her gown, veil, and shoes were, I think, the only pieces that were new to her.

We had the most beautiful evening light out at Wilson’s!!! I could’ve photographed Anna and Gabriel out there for hours and hours…except that the light didn’t stick around long enough for that, haha.
