Sandra and Anthony always dreamed about having a destination wedding, but when their immediate family didn't seem excited about the idea, things took a turn. The two decided to go the traditional route, booking a church and venue at home so that all their friends and family could attend. "Looking back on the day it was one of the best decisions we could have made!" Sandra remembers.
Seeing each other for the first time at the altar was one of the best moments of the day for both Sandra and Anthony. "The joy, the excitement, seeing how beautiful she looked in the dress, and seeing the expressions on everyone's faces -- it was a memorable moment," says Anthony.
After taking photographs at the Paletta Mansion in Burlington, it was time to head over to the reception. Upon arrival the two were immediately blown away by the décor and flowers and how everything came together even more beautifully than they had imagined. "Everything looked stunning, we couldn't stop staring," Sandra says.
After sharing some good laughs and shedding a few tears listening to speeches over dinner, it was time to party. "It was such an amazing night! I wish it never ended," Sandra says.
