Hallie and Jose were recently married at the Club at Grandezza ! Check out some of the more traditional and dramatic portraits we captured of the couple below! Grandezza is a beautiful wedding venue in the Naples, Florida area with lush greenery around the property and plenty of locations for photography. It has a large ballroom that can handle just about any event! Since Jose is in the service, Hallie wasn’t exactly sure if he was going to get time off for the wedding. It wasn’t until just a few weeks before the wedding that Jose got the OK for time off. Despite the uncertainty, Hallie planned a pretty big wedding anyway! We’re glad it all worked out! 🙂 Below Hallie tells us how she met Jose:
Jose and I went to high school together and we had mutual friends but we weren’t friends. It wasn’t till graduation time that I started liking him and then we talked for awhile but drifted apart. Then 2 years later I decided to message him and then the next 2 weeks we spent every day together until he went to boot camp. (The first time we actually saw each other in 2 years he came to my work and waited for me almost an hour to see me which I thought was pretty special). For the next 3 months we constantly wrote letters to each other. We both agree during the time he was gone is when we knew we wanted to be together. I knew he was the one one because from the beginning it was if we had known each other for a lifetime and didn’t have to act different to try to impress each other. He’s very respectful and loving to everyone around him and I knew he would be willing to do anything to make a marriage work.
