We recently received this submission from photographer Christine Vertin in Naples, Florida. We love the story behind this wedding, as well as the beautiful images. Christine told us about the wedding:
“I was approached by Sue Savino at the Naples Beach Hotel on behalf of Operation Open Arms to donate my services for a military wedding ceremony. I was honored and looking forward to it.
Tim (the Groom) had just returned home from his 4th deployment in Irag and serving ten years so far as Sgt. in the United States Army. Jeanette, the beautiful bride, got ready at my studio so we were able to shoot some fun images there and on the way to the venue.
Tim and Jeanette were wed on the lawn at The Naples Beach Hotel. Weddings are always incredibly beautiful at this location and the coordinators are wonderful to work with. I do not have images of reception coverage, as I was not asked to cover it. The images we did capture are beautiful and capture the love they have for each other.”
