Agus and Danny are two incredible people with two amazing families who we've had the pleasure of documenting in the past when we filmed Agus' sister's wedding in 2011. We can only say that attending this couple's wedding was like attending the wedding of a relative...we felt like we knew everyone there! There's so much that we can say about the Galmarini family: they throw insane, till' 3:00 in the morning weddings, they are super warm and friendly, they root for the Fighting Irish and they certainly have penchant for the name Maria (all 4 Galmarini sisters are named Maria!). But what we love and admire most is the honest love that this family shares and the amount of love that they have for Agus and Danny. This was especially evident in that the 3 Marias couldn't get through their speeches without crying!
But once you get to know this fantastic couple, it's easy to understand the happy tears. They are gracious, down to earth people with a great sense of humor who are trying leave the world better than how they found it. Agus has spent time volunteering for the AmeriCorps, while Danny returned from a tour in Afghanistan not too long before their wedding. They met while at Norte Dame and dated for nearly 10 years before we had the honor of capturing this special moment in their lives.
As we mentioned, this family has hosted some legendary weddings, and they always trust the amazing Jackie Ohh to plan out their fantastic events. Jackie certainly did not disappoint, planning a rustic and elegant beach-side affair in Captiva Island, off the west coast of Florida. The energetic band, Libido also made sure that the Galmarinis and Wards partied until their feet gave out. It was a truly beautiful wedding for a very deserving couple!
We are very thankful to Agus, Danny and their awesome families for sharing their happiest moments with us! We share in your joy and wish you many blessings in your marriage!
