Jeremiah and Ana | Romantic Bel Vino Winery Wedding
Jeremiah and Ana met each other back in 2014 from a mutual friend. He’s a Marine and is originally from Michigan. She’s is originally from Ensenada, Mexico.
Since they met they knew they belonged to each other. Culture, language, families, careers didn’t matter when they were together. Nothing mattered but each other. It was a bit difficult since Ana was in college and with Jeremiah’s career in the Marine Corps. Their relationship was always long distance. But that didn’t stop them from being together!
They’ve been together now for 4 years and are inseparable!!!
The Proposal Story
In Ana’s words:
“We knew he was leaving for deployment in the next few months. One weekend we went to the beach and he asked me to pose for a picture by the ocean. He went to ask a stranger to take a photo of both of us. I kept smiling for the picture and then I looked at him. There he was on one knee holding the ring! It totally surprised me because he doesn’t like pictures! Haha! Thanks to that person who took our picture it’s all perfectly captured!”
Some of their Favorite Things to do Together:
- Hiking together!
- Watching movies!
- Camping and road trips!!!
What is the most important piece of advice that you’d give to another couple?
In Ana’s words:
“Remember how great you guys are together! There’s always good and tough moments. Times that make you doubt and maybe want to quit. All those terrible thoughts and feelings go away and you feel a lot better and calm when you make a pause to remember how that person makes you feel and how good they are to you. Love is always stronger than any problem!”
The Bel Vino Winery Wedding Shoot
Since Jeremiah and Ana only had enough time to have a courthouse wedding before he deployed we put together a styled shoot to capture these beautiful moments for them!
Being a Marine wife myself, I’m SO thankful to have been able to be here to photograph them for this! Throughout the entire Bel Vino Winery Wedding shoot they snuggled together, laughed, and they couldn’t keep their eyes each other! It was so incredibly sweet and romantic!
