I could not think of a more perfect start to the 2017 wedding season!!! Aileen & Etienne were married at The Garden City Hotel - we had the most perfect weather, fully bloomed cherry blossoms, and a dreamy golden sunset! But, above all that, we witnessed the most beautiful love from these two! It was overflowing as I watched them treat every single vendor like they were part of the family! Chris and I couldn't stop talking about their kindness, glowing smiles, and hearts of gold!! <3 Congrats you two!!! 

I want this ring!!! 

Etienne & Aileen's First Look was so sweet! 

We had cherry blossom trees in FULL BLOOM!!! Photographer's DREAM! 

For the record, Adirondack chairs are HEAVY, but it was totally worth it for this gorgeous photo! Thank you bridesmaids for pushing for this one!!! :)

After the ceremony, we went back outside for some sunset photos - best decision ever!

I have so many favorite moments from the day, but this tops the list. Here I am with THREE of my #CassiClaireCouples! Kaitlin (Aileen's sister) & Rory were married in 2013, George & Mary were married in 2014, and now Aileen & Etienne in 2017! What a joy to have everyone reunited again!!! Love you guys! <3
