The Dazzling Details just turned 15 years old! It’s been the adventure of a lifetime. To celebrate, I am choosing my Top 15 wedding photos to share. You’ll notice they aren’t of decor or details (though that’s also totally my jam), but of smiles, laughter and joy. These are the true moments that make a wedding.
Peek A Boo
I love this image of Molly peeking over Nate’s shoulder. Can’t you just see the sparkle in her eye?
The bride and groom depart their ceremony with huge smiles celebrating beneath a shower of biodegradable confetti!
Just Married (finally)!
Natalie and Wes tied the knot after the longest relationship in the history of The Dazzling Details. The groom showing off that ring on his finger just had to be one of the top 15 wedding photos!
One Magical Night
One of the most consistently magical moments at weddings is a sparkler dance! There is literally nothing more romantic than the bride and groom encircled by loved ones holding magical light.
Caught in the Moment
I love a completely candid image that perfectly represents a moment. In this top 15 wedding photo, the bride turned spontaneously as the photographer followed the couple to the beach for photos. The result is stunning!
Sumeet and Neil celebrated their relationship in traditional garments on the dance floor! The vibrant colors as well as their smiles made them one of my top ever!
Just a Little Bit Excited
Is there anything better than a bride who is literally bouncing off the walls (or in this case, bed) with excitement? This top 15 wedding photo was a perfect capture!
When prepared with thought and executed with style, wedding speeches are my fave! This image of the bride and groom laughing hysterically during the toasts is testament that this can be a wonderful part of a wedding!
Wrapped in Love
This image transmits so much love! The bride was engulfed by her ladies on the dance floor, and there’s nothing better than a head tossed back in laughter!
There’s nothing stiff or stuffy about a destination wedding crowd. I love it when a group laughs its way through a wedding ceremony and has as much fun during the I Do’s as they do at the reception.
Beneath the Exploding Stars
The dinner tables abandoned, the dance floor full, and Koryna and Greg embrace each other with smiles as they watch the grand finale fireworks explode into the sky at their Punta Mita wedding celebration!
That Look in Her Eyes
This incredibe image struck me from the moment Caitlin and Jake’s gallery arrived. The bride looks absolutely radiant and so-in-love as she listens to her groom recite his wedding vows.
A Stolen Moment
While guests wine and dine, Emily and Bryce sneak a kiss from their love-seat dinner seating. This is when a great photographer makes the difference in capturing those precious moments!
The Grand Finale
I’m not a photographer. I love that I get to step back and simply enjoy the fireworks display right alongside the guests, but I recognize the complicated task of capturing the unpredictability of fireworks in a photo. When it all comes together in the frame, the result is magical!
Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow
There’s just something special about the photos of a dance party in full swing, and when its the bride or groom wearing a huge smile at center stage, the moment is truly unforgettable.
