NaNa and Neema | Sneak Peek
August 17, 2019 at Bella Collina Lawn, Montverde FL
The Bella Collina lawn was the perfect location for Neema and NaNa to say “I do”! Plus, we got to check out some of the newly remodeled locker room!
Both Neema and NaNa were taking classes at UCF when they met through a mutual friend. After that, they became really close for the next three years before realizing there was something more than just friends there. You would think things would come easy during that friendsition (can we make this a word?) but Neema thought for sure he was setting himself up for the friend-zone. Their first date was definitely memorable (maybe not for the best reasons though!). Luckily, there was a second date, and that eventually led them to a walk down the aisle!
Before their wedding, they held a traditional Tea Ceremony at NaNa’s family’s house. It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony and I’ll be sharing photos of that soon, too!
Their wedding day was actually a beautiful break from both the heat and rain we’ve been experiencing lately! Overcast skies (but no precipitation) meant cooler temperatures and a beautiful breeze just in time for NaNa’s walk down the aisle! Their ballroom reception was full of surprises – from indoor fireworks to a cloud of fog for their first dance, bubbles and a confetti canon! We finished off the night with a non-stop club mix from FyerFly Productions before they shared their last dance in their empty ballroom and then were off with a beautiful sparkler exit!
