Real Bride Kate

The new Mr & Mrs Gazzillo were married on July 16th, in Annapolis, Maryland with a “Disco Galaxy” theme, for their magical, rainy, funky, wedding. Complete with 30 disco balls, vintage cameras, a Moon photobooth built by FOB, retro/sequin attire by every guest, a vintage Rolls Royce and graphic designs by the bride.

For Eric & Kate, it all began over FaceTime during 2020, followed by a Casablanca movie night, and countless mornings talking about the cosmos together. Like a love story backwards, or a constellation upside down….

It was 3 years together at Towson University, sharing their passions for photography, design and theater, when they did….. NOT meet. It took 10 years for Eric and Kate to meet by an act of fate online when they were living 10 minutes apart, again, in Northern Virginia. Within minutes of meeting, they both knew it. They were written in the stars.

Real Bride Sara

My favorite moment was my first look with my husband. My photographer lead me to him and the second I saw him in the distance with his back turned to me, my eyes immediately welled up. As I approached him, I couldn’t wait for him to turn around and see me for the first time. I tapped his shoulder and when he turned, he also had tears filling his eyes. It was a special and heartfelt moment we were able to share alone.

You can choose from the royal, royal Deux, royal trots, and royella styles. Even more, they come in unexpected colors like slate and pink. There is always something for everyone.
