Patrick and Brette / West Village, NYC engagement session

Brette, Patrick and I met at their brownstone in the west village on a rainy Friday morning. We had hoped for some morning sunlight but a few minutes after we started shooting, the unpredictable springtime weather had other plans for us. Luckily we found refuge in a quaint little coffee shop! We spent the rest of our morning taking advantage of the cozy weather for some laid-back and warm photos.

Jared + Lauren / Wedding at Miami Beach Botanical Gardens

You might remember Jared and Lauren from their fabulous NYC engagement session last year. I knew their wedding was going to be as equally amazing. Every colorful detail was chosen with care, from the florals to the bridesmaids dresses to the cute wooden bowties the boys donned.

Despite all the gorgeous details and colorful backdrop of the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, nothing compared to the pure joy that Lauren and Jared showed on their faces. It was a very emotional day and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room (mine included!) when Lauren’s sweet dad led her on the dance floor to the Beatles’ “In My Life”. It was a sweet, warm day and a fun, crazy night and I’m so happy I got to be a part of it.

Tim + Julia / wedding at Plymouth Congregational Church

There’s something magical about a couple that meets and falls in love despite being from different continents. Julia was born and raised in Miami and Tim is from right across the pond in England. He sailed his way to Florida with friends on an impromptu trip and that’s when he met Julia.

Fast forward to 2015 and they were exchanging vows at the same church Julia’s grandparents were married in many moons ago. They had an intimate party with friends from near and far and included lots of little details to celebrate both their heritages. They had Paperfinger create beautiful illustrations for the table names that were all locations special to them, including “Guernsey” which is an illustration of the groom’s childhood home, a 15th century farmhouse in an English channel island. As their guests arrived, they were welcomed with some Pimm’s Cup and played some good, old fashioned croquet.
