Jonathan + Clare / wedding at the Palms Hotel

Small, intimate weddings are my favorite specially when the bride and groom are from out of town! It says so much about the kind of people they are when their friends and family are willing travel across an ocean to celebrate their marriage.

Jonathan and Clare did not disappoint. They brought their nearest and dearest all the way from London to exchange vows under a Chuppah in Miami. The way they stole glances at each other all day was wonderful to capture and I dare you not to smile when you catch a glimpse of their giddiness to be around each other.

Brooklyn Loft wedding inspiration

In every wedding there’s a certain uncertainty that is looms over the day. Regardless of the most careful planning, there are always variables that are out of my control. It’s part of the fun! It keeps me on my toes and really makes every wedding unique.

When Wedding Paper Divas approached me to create an editorial for their paper goods, I jumped at the chance to have full control of a shoot! With the help of the amazing Tatiana from Whimsy Weddings I was able to make my vision for an intimate, classic loft wedding come true. It was so much fun doing something out of my comfort zone and I’m so excited to finally share it.

Rodi + Eni / miami beach wedding

It was a typical hot and humid summer day and the rain was fierce. I drove to the venue and took a deep breath before walking up to see Eni. She and Rodi planned a destination wedding from Detroit and it seemed like their vision for a sunny outdoor wedding wasn’t going to happen. I mentally prepared to comfort an anxious bride but when I walked into her room I was only met with smiles and hugs from her and her family.

We kept checking the forecast and decided to move forward with our original plans, rain or no rain. We packed umbrellas and headed out for the first look. As soon as we began the clouds began to dissipate and pockets of sunshine poked their way out. More smiles and more hugs.

It was all perfection from there. Eni made her way down the aisle as the sun glowed beside her. Their friends and family that had flown in from all over were gathered and glowed with happiness around the altar. Rodi led Eni to the dance floor as their guests danced around them to traditional Albanian music and passed around the handkerchief Eni’s mom made just for the occasion.
