Patrick & Melissa’s wedding was such a fun filled day!  Everyone was joyful and full of excitement for all the fun events!  Melissa was radiant in her dress and after she saw Patrick she had a warm smile the rest of the day and evening.  I loved watching them laugh together……I think Patrick will be making Melissa laugh for the years to come 😉  

Big thanks to Christine May for shooting with me on Mother’s Day and to Kelley Flora Ruf for keeping all the parts of the day in line :)

Melissa’s something borrowed was her grandmothers garter :)

I love all the fun parts of Jewish weddings.  Especially the part where the women are all in one room and the men all in another before the Badeken, the veiling of the bride.  The women are all having snacks, maybe some wine and greeting the bride, the mothers and the grandmothers while the men are all toasting, singing and in general having a big fun loud time, lol!

The room at Noah’s was beautiful with the drapery and lights!

The flowers and table settings at the reception where so pretty!!!!  I loved the mix of the wood accents with the watercolor designs on all of the printed items!

Congratulations Melissa & Patrick!  I was so glad to be your wedding photographer!!!!!!!!!

Wedding season really kicked into gear for me the with Paul and Allie’s wedding being the first of every weekend for a few months booked for weddings!  Which is super exciting because I get to eat a lot of cake 😉  Just kidding….but I do love cake :p!

This wedding was pretty special as it is another wedding where I have been blessed to have worked with some of the families in the past.  I have photographed the groom’s senior photos and more senior photos and weddings and family photos and some of their friends weddings too!  I loved seeing all of them and getting to know Allie’s family too!  Super wonderful families coming together!

Their wedding was at the Red Barn Farm in the new barn and it was my first time shooting there!  It was so lovely!  A photographers dream!  Speaking of photographers dream, Allie had a whole line up of fabulous vendors making every little part perfect!  Starting with Wedding by Hannah, always such a pleasure to work with!  The barn was just so beautiful with all of the flowers by Good Earth Floral Design Studio and all the goodies from Ultra Pom Event Rental!  The photo bus was there making extra fun for the guests!  The food and drinks were amazing!   I am going to have to come back to this with some other vendor love!

As lovely as the whole event was it was nothing compared to the obvious love that Allie and Paul shared for each other.  Together they were so at ease and  just being around them made you feel happy.  It is hard to describe what I could see of the two of them together on a blog but anybody who knows them will understand when I say they just fit together perfectly :)

Big shout out to Mike Tsai for capturing the day with me and of course for the selfies :)

I have about a bazillion photos to share……just couldn’t stop!
