“I’m the happiest when I’m right next to you.”

Bella Collina, Montverde, Fl Wedding

A dream wedding can come true even during a pandemic. You only need your inner circle and the one you love most. Areli and Cornelius said their vows in front of their beloved families at Bella Collina. It is hard not to feel the magic of their love at this luxurious venue. Areli and Cornelius told me that they don’t like to be the center of attention but photos are very important to them so this elopement was perfect. After a sweet ceremony, champagne toast and cake cutting, we went all out with newlyweds portraits. It was only a few hours but I’m thrilled that I was able to capture so many special moments they will cherish for a lifetime. Congratulations!

Cornelius to Areli – Areli, I know we have been waiting for this day for a very long time and it’s finally here. The words I am about to say mean a lot and come from the heart.

Cornelius to Areli – I promise you I will love you forever until death do us part. I will forever protect and provide for you and our future family. I promise to pray for you everyday. I will communicate with you even if I don’t feel like talking and vow to always be patience as we continue to grow.

Cornelius to Areli – Most importantly, I promise to keep God first, seek Him for guidance for us and to help lead this family. I know I am not perfect and never will be, but I promise to put God at the center of our marriage. “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.” Which means when times are hard we will become ore determined to keep this going forever! This is a forever thing.

Areli to Cornelisu – Cornelius, from the moment we met, you have been someone who is loving, caring, compassionate for others, selfless, and silly of course. You have always stood firm in who you are and what you believe. Over the years, I have grown to love and accept every part of who you are and who you will be.

Areli to Cornelius – We’ve laughed, cried, challenged and encouraged each other through some of our most beautiful and difficult times. I couldn’t imagine going through may of it with you by my side.

Areli to Cornelius – I love the example of true love Jesus set for us to follow. The more I seek Him the better I am able to love you. The same way He gave Himself to the church, today, I stand here before God and our loved ones and vow to honor you and respect you all the days of my life.

Areli to Cornelius ~ I vow to rejoice with you in the good times and comfort you in the bad times. I will listen to you with understanding and allow you to speak and will be there to support, encourage and learn from you.

Areli to Cornelius – As we seek wisdom and guidance for the Lord, I look forward to learning and growing with you for the rest of our lives. I look forward to motivating each other toward our God-given purpose. Together, with God, let us build a life that is a refection of His love. Let us be the light we were called to be. I love you today and forever.
