Sweet, sweet love.
Congratulations to H+S this past weekend on there very intimate wedding celebration!
We visited one of their favorite restaurants and first date spot, Nopa, to relive some fond memories.
Just a few of our favorite shots from Maryann and Kevin’s special day. They wanted a few snaps prior to their intimate dinner reception to remember their special day 🙂

Elizabeth and Mike’s wedding and festivities were set in the beautiful Abacos, Bahamas.
Abacos is the place where everyone knew everyone and all that was happening 🙂 We got to run amuck the entire island in bicycles and golf carts around the intimate island and getting to know most of the locals.
The night ended with some surprise fireworks!

We also covered their rehearsal dinner and had some fun getting to know everyone prior to the wedding day.
This season has been filled with many weddings, and surprisingly, many of them have been more low-key and intimate. Devon and Chris’ is one wedding that we have enjoyed shooting and one that our talented photographers, Mark and Lacey, have captured with a certain beauty and calm. Our biggest congratulations to Devon and Chris, whose blossoming friendship led to something that will be forever wonderful.

In plain, Michelle and Alvin are just two cool cats. Like seriously cool. We love their energy and are so glad to have them as friends now! They definitely know how to have fun and it was one of the most entertaining weddings we’ve been to! Their beautiful day started at the Meridian Hotel and W Hotel with all of the getting ready details and then we made our way to the Terra Art Gallery for the ceremony and reception.
Alvin definitely understands the time constraints of weddings from his experience filming them, so he gave us three hours for bridal party portraits, allowing us plenty of time to get some great shots and goof off a little before their ceremony 🙂
I wanted to try something different so I decided to venture outside of the hotel this time for the dress and shoe captures. The red and white wall you see is a whole person taller than myself and luckily two construction workers walked by and caught me looking up at the wall in defeat and were kind enough to lend me a ladder to get the shot.
We love Joann and Ken! Besides them being one of the most adorable couples we’ve worked with, they were so comfortable in front of the camera that their special day was a breeze to shoot and a great experience. I remember showing up at city hall and Joann was all smiles, wearing a beautiful white dress and holding a giant bouquet of yellow roses that really added to her simple elegance. They both nailed every shot and direction I threw at them and we had a lot of fun. It felt like a real celebration, and it was great to share the day with them. Joann and Ken also surprised me when they asked me to sign as their witness, and I am so honored. Joann’s mom even jokes and says I’m part of the family now 🙂
Three cheers and many kisses to come for Joann and Ken! We can’t wait to see them again for their big day early next year!
