Brace yourself. It’s about to get beautiful up in here.
There are SO many gorgeous people and moments from this wedding that I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting to share. The fantastically coordinated colors, the classic tailored suits with bowties, the custom logo that the bride and groom had a hand in designing, and the soft light that just seemed to follow us all day… oh I was in heaven. And working with Erin and Blake was an absolute pleasure. They are creatives with an eye for design and an appreciation for style, which was evident at every turn. AND they’re just some of the most kind and delightful people you could ever meet. Blake and Erin, just throwing this out there, but I think it would be a great idea to have a big five year anniversary party… I mean, you’re obviously savvy event planners and the camera kind of loves you. And, you know, I could photograph it. Sounds like a good plan to me :).
I often have brides ask me where the best place to get ready is, and my answer is always anywhere that has good light. And this beautiful room at the Ritz-Carlton had an abundance of natural light, which made it ideal and oh-so-dreamy.
After spending just a few minutes with Erin’s dad, I knew one thing for sure: this is a daddy who absolutely loves his little girl.
My heart skips a beat when beautiful light is literally around every corner. And how beautiful are Erin and Blake? Sheesh.
Bow ties make me swoon. Just sayin.
Erin’s best longtime best friend and maid of honor (left) also shares the same name. And, maid-of-honor-Erin is Blake’s sister. So Erin (bride) married her best friend’s brother, and the two Erins have the same full name. And now, they really are sisters. I love it.
Blake surprised Erin with this clever, custom info-graphic with details about their relationship. It was designed to perfection, and my favorite piece is the map on the bottom that plots out the details of their honeymoon. I get a serious case of jealousy every time I look at all the stops along the way.
I’d say Erin was pretty excited about it :).
So much joy….
Erin and Blake, when I suggested you throw another event, I was serious. You’re fabulous at it, and I’m already looking forward to photographing you again. Much love and the happiest of wishes to you both!
