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.

Jared & Lauren / Brooklyn engagement session

Jared, Lauren and I met at the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn bridge right before the sun went up. As we casually strolled between the boroughs, the sun started rising and lit up the skyline. We spent a perfect New York morning talking about everything from raising kids in the city to Lauren and I’s Miami accent (it definitely exists!)

Here are some of my favorites from that morning. Can’t wait for their wedding in a few months!

Chris & Andrys / wedding in San Luis Obispo

When I first met Chris and Andrys in Miami they were so excited to have a local small, intimate celebration with close family and friends.

A few months before the wedding Andrys got in touch and told me that their small wedding had gotten out of control and it no longer felt like their original vision for an intimate event with close family and friends. She and Chris had a heart to heart and decided that they were going to follow their original plan. They found a lovely vineyard and ranch house in San Luis Obispo and planned their new destination wedding in just three months!

On their wedding day Adrys and Chris exchanged vows in front of 25 of their closest friends and family. It was xactly what they had envisioned. They had an al fresco dinner with locally-made wine and danced the night away under the stars.

Sometimes sticking to your guns pays off very well.
