Crystal and Matteo had the most beautiful summer wedding at Villa Del Cardinale in Italy this past July and I still can’t believe I got to photograph it. I’ve been waiting MONTHS to share these photos, and since it was published on The Knot today, I finally can! We met Crystal when she was at college, and have been supporting her decision to move to Rome as a missionary since day one. When she announced that she was engaged last year, I just had to be there for it. I knew it was going to be a long shot since we were in the middle of a pandemic, but God really paved the way for us to go. Literally one week before the wedding, ALL travel restrictions were lifted. I’m still in shock that we were able to go! I knew from what I had heard that we would love Matteo, and I was right. He is absolutely perfect for Crystal. His love for Jesus is just as contagious as hers, and I know they will do so much for the Lord! Their whole ceremony was a testament to that. They vowed, prayed, worshipped, and ended the ceremony washing each other’s feet. They even shared their first kiss for their wedding day. I wish them the very best and can’t thank them enough for trusting me to photograph their day! Seriously, what a dream.
