I'm determined to get back on track with my blogging, and what a great wedding to start that back up with! Ariel and Steven's day was seriously everything that I love about photographing weddings. Especially when that starts off with one adorably happy couple. From the moment we walked in, you could just tell that Elle was SO full of joy and happiness that it was really their wedding day at last! And when these two look at each other you can see all the mutual respect and pride and love. Add to this an amazing and supportive group, and a blended faith ceremony that emphasized that respect and commitment they have for each other and their family. And SO many gorgeous details and portraits and moments!! Okay and to top all of that off, a packed-dance-floor reception with sing-alongs and happy tears galore! AH! This was such a beautiful day! So happy to be a part of it and so glad for these two! (And many many thanks to Molly & Nick for connecting us, and even hopping in a few photos as well ;) )
Congratulations Elle & Steven! Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your day!
How gorgeous are these details? And Elle's MOH did all the handlettering for the day! From the envelopes to the signage at the reception! So pretty!
So gorgeous Elle! Most stunning bride!
I love when couples share letters for each other!
Stylin' and flossin'. There's always time for a little more floss practice... hahaha
Look at all these gorgeous signs and details!! Beautiful!!
They made sure to include items on the menu that called to special dishes for each of their families. Love this kind of detail!
Elle's brother played the ceremony music!
When you feel like the luckiest person in the world, you smile like this!
Best luck ever!
This crew was amazing and so much fun!
I seriously am just obsessed beyond words with every one of their portraits
SO much happiness. Ahhh!!
& lots of emotional moments to go around too!
Every one of these toasts were perfect! Especially Elle's Matron of Honor, Andrea's - HILARIOUS!
Steven's parents won the anniversary dance :) & I love how much happiness is shared amongst Elle and Steven's parents!
I couldn't resist getting in a photo with these two beautiful brides of mine!! <3 Thank you both for being such awesome people!
CONGRATULATIONS Elle and Steven! Such a perfect day!
