STELLA & TIM | MAYOWOOD STONE BARN WEDDING

Stella & Tim hosted such a unique celebration, centered around the ceremony that united them and husband and wife. The beautiful details were lovely (in fact, my assistant and I could not stop gushing about them all day), but the things that resonate most to me, were the moments during the ceremony when Tim wiped the tears from Stella’s face. It was the moments when they couldn’t stop smiling at each other. It was beautiful to witness. The ceremony was made even more personal, due to the fact that it was performed by Tim’s parents, who are pastors.

After the morning ceremony, guests enjoyed a delicious lunch, toasts and dancing to a 17 piece swing band! It was quite fun! I must give a huge, huge resounding ‘THANK YOU’ to Jennifer from Premier Planning Services and her husband for planning and coordinating this event. They couldn’t have possibly done a better job and I am so lucky to get to work with amazing vendors like Jennifer week after week. I also loved the incredible florals by Summer Harsh. So amazing!! Thank you ladies!  And, thank you to Stella & Tim for entrusting me to document your day.

KATIE & ANDREW | MINNEAPOLIS WEDDING WITH PREMIER PLANNING SERVICES

Katie and Andrew are the sweetest couple! Their wedding day brought lots of heat, humidity and occasional bursts of rain, but they didn’t let it ruin their day. In fact, it was all about their love, their ceremony and the start of their new lives. I am so happy for them as they begin their marriage stationed in Germany, while Andrew serves our country. A special thank you to Rita and the amazing crew at Premier Planning Services for coordinating their day flawlessly.

KERSTIN & ERIK | DULUTH WEDDING WITH LAURA MULLEN EVENT DESIGN

Congratulations to Kerstin & Erik! Their gorgeous wedding day in Duluth, Minnesota, was coordinated by the amazing crew at Laura Mullen Event Design. Whenever I’m working with Laura, I know everything will be flawless! The details were made even sweeter (pun intended!) with an out-of-this-world cake by Gateaux (seriously, scroll down to see this masterpiece, designed to match the ceiling molding at the venue) and florals by one of my favorites, Tara of A Day in Provence. Of course, it’s the nature of a wedding day; hiccups will happen along the way, but Kerstin and Erik handled these minor details (and the extreme heat!) with complete grace and poise. Kerstin & Erik jetted off immediately after their big day to honeymoon in Africa (jealous!!) and I hope you two had the time of your lives!

SARAH & ALLEN | KIND WORDS

I am so enamored with Sarah & Allen! Sarah sent me the sweetest email after viewing her photos for the first time and I just wanted to share!! (P.S. You can check out Sarah & Allen’s wedding photos here on my blog, or check out their just married session, engagement in NYC or fabulous feature on Style Me Pretty!!

Thank you Sarah! Your email absolutely made my day… my week, my month!! :)

“I’m speechless! I’ve been struggling all day long with how to describe my feelings for these photos you sent, because all that is running through my mind is beautiful, beautiful, holy-cow beautiful. Allen and I are head over heels for all these images. These are so gorgeous and we couldn’t be more thrilled (so worth the wait). Your photos are insanely gorgeous and romantic. You captured every breathtaking moment and every sophisticated detail shot that we wanted (from location to food to even the texture). There is not a single detail shot that I don’t completely adore.

The entire wedding day felt pretty magical for us, we were lucky to have the clear blue skies right before the ceremony start. My favorite memory was during our ceremony, the exchanging of our vows, the cheering of our friends and family. That memory was really special and you have captured it so well. Looking at these amazingly beautiful ceremony shots, I can practically feel the warm breeze coming off the ocean again. YES, your photos bring back the memories so vividly.

I know you must get these type of thank you emails after every wedding you shoot! But I still can’t thank you enough, because you had captured each and every beautiful moment that holds a close place to my heart. In the end, it’s the photos that are important, because these are memories that we will cherish forever in our heart. You really went above and beyond for my wedding! Thank you so much, Laura!”

 

sarah wu - You deserved all the praises because you are truly amazing and talented!
