Aria Wedding Videography | Rodolfo + Courtney

Rodolfo and Courtney were married at Aria in downtown Minneapolis and during their ceremony, Rodolfo recited a poem he had written for Courtney in Sicilian, his native language. It’s a beautiful language to express such beautiful ideas about gratitude and happiness. His poem, “Stunned” was printed in English and in Sicilian on the programs for everyone to read, but it’s amazing to hear him actually speaking the words. Even during the ceremony, when we had no idea what he was saying (because we were shooting, not reading) we could tell that he was so joyful and moved. He joked that he loved to talk and express himself, and it was a good thing he wasn’t born in America or he would run for President, but Courtney specifically said that that was what she loved about him. He doesn’t hide his excitement or his love for people. During the first look, he was so anxious to turn around and see Courtney, I’m pretty sure he set a record for most times that a groom asked if he could turn around; it was so sweet!

Courtney and Rodolfo, I know you will have an amazing life together and we were so honored to capture your wedding day! Congratulations!
