Etheral Garden Wedding: Merav & Jack

From the first moment, I spoke with Merav & Jack on the phone I knew this was going to be an amazing wedding.  Jack and Merav planned a wedding with celebrating friends and family as a priority.  They picked an amazing location, Rabbi (also Merav’s father), caterer, florist, and band… but most importantly they had vision.  They transformed this backyard into an ethereal secret garden with flowers hanging from the trees.  Truly magical.

Added to that magic was Merav & Jack’s wonderful family and friends and this intimate wedding felt like a real party.  The singing, the dancing, the joy was contagious.  Truly wonderful.

Congratulations Merav & Jack  

 

Church Landing Wedding: Stephanie & Evan

This past week, the skies cleared for Stephanie and Evan's wedding at Chase House at Church Landing.  We had a beautiful summer day and a picture perfect wedding.  I didn't get the change to get to know Stephanie and Evan much prior to the wedding, but at their wedding, I got to see that they are perfect for each other.  Both easy-going, caring people who put family first.  Their son, Tyler, proved that point during his toast offering the greatest compliments any parents could dream of.

Congrautlations Stephanie and Evan!

A Lakes Region Wedding: Katie & John

Katie and John had the perfect, laid back and heartfelt wedding.  It was just the right balance of tender and tinder.  I must first mention the location, because this home is breathtaking.  Katie’s Mother custom-designed this masterpiece of a lakefront home before her far-too-early death.  The house is literally built around a gigantic, circular stone fireplace – there is barely a right angle in the home.  It is truly amazing.

Now the couple.  Katie & John are hands down the most kissy couple I have ever photographed.  I hope they keep on kissing like this for the rest of their lives.  The love they have for each other is powerful and infectious.

And finally, the tinder.  This group knows how to have a good time.  I’ve been to over 200 weddings and never have I seen a fully dressed, guests flip a canoe; drink a beer out of a boot; captain an inflatable whale… the list goes on.  This will be a wedding I will never forget.

Congratulations Katie and John-o!
