Known worldwide as the birthplace of the Renaissance the beautiful city of Florence embodies the spirit of ancient Italy and is one of the most romantic cities in the world to get married! Hawaii wedding photographer JEANNEMARIE PHOTO captured this stunning sunrise bridal shoot in Florence, beginning on a quiet street in front of the Church of Santa Maria del Fiore Duomo.

Architecturally, this is one of the most important Gothic churches in Tuscany and a perfect start for a sunrise shoot before all the tourists start to gather. Hawaii wedding florist DESIGNS BY HEMINGWAY designed a beautiful bouquet of Westminster Abbey garden roses, lisianthus, sweet pea, ranunculus and copper dried plumosa. "As the street filled up with people gathering to enjoy the beautiful morning light, we continued to the top of the city to the abbey of San Miniato al Monte. The panoramic views of the city of Florence are spectacular up there as it is one of the highest points in the city. I’m so happy we got to style our bride at such a beautiful location!"

"Being an artist, Florence has been a dream place to travel and photograph at. Imagine, walking the same streets as the Medici, Michelangelo, Botticelli, and Leonardo Da Vinci you can feel the past in the stones you walk upon. I can imagine the conversations between Lorenzo and Michelangelo!  JEANNEMARIE PHOTO shares with us.

For our shoot it was the mixture of the historically architecture of this fabulous city and the modern styling of our bride was the perfect mix. Sunrise was the perfect time to photograph our bride when the city is still a sleepy. We then headed up to the top of the city to San Miniato al Monte where the panoramic view of the city takes one breathe away. I so loved the shoot that Michigan wedding photographer K.R. MORENO and Debbie put together for us!"
