It’s said that the little things, the details,  are what make the big things happen and that was definitely the case for Michael and Lauren’s wedding. Their beautiful wedding was a big event and it came together flawlessly in thanks to Lauren and Michael’s keen eye for the little details. Everything from the thoughtful welcome bags for their out-of-town guests to In-and-Out burgers for some midnight snacking came together to make their guests feel comfortable and make them feel welcome to have a great time.

And a great time was had!

It was a day filled with laughter, happy tears and one of the best Hora’s I’ve seen in a while.

Kevin and Katie made their way down from Buffalo to have a sun-filled wedding weekend in South Florida. Unfortunately mother nature had other plans. Hurricane-like winds, summertime humidity and sticky rain came to crash the wedding.

As I walked towards Katie’s hotel room, I worried about how she would take the news that her outdoor reception was probably not going to happen. I worried for nothing. Katie was all smiles.

Luckily as guests began to arrive to the reception, the rain had stopped and everyone spent the night dancing under the stars. Oh! And did I mention that every table had their own cake? Best idea ever.

When two people from different backgrounds who lead different lives meet and fall in love, it’s hard to believe there’s not some sort of serendipity at play. That was the case with Dane and Jenn. When you see them together, despite their differences, they’re so comfortable with each other and mesh so well that you’d think that everything in the world has happened just to bring them together.

Mike is a meticulous person. He’s been my first groom to carry a lint roller! (so smart, by the way). He was very involved in making sure the wedding day went as smoothly as possible. Angela is a laid-back person. She knows that Mike will take care of things and enjoy doing so. Individually they are so collected and cool.

Until they are together, that is.

Angela’s giddiness as she walked towards Mike for their first look was tangible and when Mike turned and saw her, he couldn’t help being overwhelmed by emotion. My cool and collected couple were suddenly giddy, emotional teenagers in love. Mike even surprised Angela (and us!) with a song he wrote himself that played as they left their ceremony.

It was such a pleasure to celebrate their wedding day with them.
