Oh my goodness, my cup runneth over! This wedding day gave me all the feels and reminded me of why I LOOOOVE my job! I knew the day would be incredible when I was greeted by the groom with 3 jars of homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Jam - the key to my heart! A few minutes later I met the bridesmaids that are destined to be my future besties! Lauren and Jeremy surround themselves with people who wear their hearts on their sleeves. I immediately felt as though I've known their family and friends my whole life. They are the most welcoming and genuine group of people, and it was such an honor to spend such an important day with them. Congratulations Lauren and Jeremy!! Sending giant hugs to you both in California!! <3
Lauren and Jeremy hosted a weekend away in the woods at Full Moon Resort, one of the most picturesque Catskills wedding venues!
Not gonna lie, all I could think was "AM I DEAD?! WHERE IS THE CORK!?"
Okay, I have to share this story because it gave me chills. The pearl necklace below belonged to Lauren's grandmother. When her grandmother passed, she left Lauren these pearls and some money. Lauren decided to use the last of her grandmother's money to buy a set of matching pearl earrings to wear to the wedding. After finding the perfect pair, she asked if she could pay in cash. The total price for the earrings rang up to be the EXACT amount of cash that Lauren had left. Down to the penny! What an incredible way to feel grandma's presence on the wedding day!! <3
Success is getting smiles out of BOTH the little ones! :)
This flower girl took her job very seriously...no petal left behind.
I love surprising my couples with a same-day slideshow of their photos! It's the culmination of a year's worth of emails and planning, and nothing brings me greater joy than seeing faces like this!! #somuchLOOOOVE
