The Secret Behind the Mona Lisa Smile…

The great thing about small weddings is that they open up so many venue opportunities. Brittianie and Joe decided they wanted to say their vows at their chosen villa in Chalk Sound, and as you’ll see from the pictures, very much in Chalk Sound – with feet in the water the whole time!

It had been a cloudy overcast day, but the sunset made the sky amazing and Ileana from Attimi Photography made the most of it. Brittianie and Joe were happy to scramble into a kayak and onto an old boat to get some unusual photos. After the ceremony they had a private chef cater for them – even bringing Champagne and canapes down to the beach.

Oh, and the secret behind the Mona Lisa smile? In every picture you’ll see a beautiful smiling bride, but behind the scenes Brittianie was pulling faces and making me laugh – she admits her face shows her every thought, so when listening to Ileana’s photography directions (“Put your chin down, eyes up, left arm behind you, right leg forward!”) her face was a picture as she was trying to figure it out. I’m sure da Vinci had just the same problems…

Take a look here to get a glimpse of the wedding… Thanks Brittianie and Joe (and Brittianie’s folks!) for letting me in share a fun afternoon and intimate ceremony… See you back in Provo soon!
