Merari Photography, Miami, New York and Destination wedding photographer » MerarPhotography is a Miami, New York and Destination wedding photographer

Chris and Colleen has a scandalous beginning. You see, they worked at the same law firm and it was frowned upon to date fellow coworkers. So for a while, Chris and Colleen kept their love a secret. That is, they thought it was a secret because it was obvious to everyone that they had googly eyes for each other. Fast forward a couple of years, an awkward human resources conversation and a proposal later and Chris and Colleen declared their love for one another in front of those friends and family they thought they were being sneaky around. It was a perfect day full of laughter and good vibes.

Oh, the cold. I hate it. I’ve been too accustomed to the Miami weather that anytime it dips below 75, I run for my cardigans.

With that said, you can just imagine the experience it was to photograph Stuart and Melanie in windy 30 degree D.C. How do people survive up there? But man, oh man. We had the best light and Mel and Stuart were total troopers all afternoon. They even helped me keep my weak, Floridian hands warm while I shot.

I had such a great time with them and I can’t wait to document their wedding day later this year.

Not many brides get pooped on on their wedding days by a free-flowing bird and laugh it off as amazingly as Emily did. I think that’s the perfect moment to describe Chris and Emily’s wedding day; funny, laid-back and memorable.

We spent all afternoon driving around Duval street taking photos in pretty nooks and crannies. When we arrived to their ceremony and Emily walked down the aisle with her dad, not an eye was dry,  not even mine.  Their vows were sweet and funny, just like them. And when they started the party under the big trees and bistro lights, all of Key West joined in the festivities (seriously! People were dancing on the sidewalk).

It was the perfect wedding for me to end my 2014 and I’m sooo excited to finally share Emily and Chris’ wedding day.
