May 10, 2011

there are some days that just beg for an afternoon wedding and sarah and tom’s big day was just that! the weather was stunning, the location gorgeous and the couple crazy in love. I went up the night before because I was meeting sarah and her girls early in the morning of wedding day. I went down into the hotel lobby the next morning to get some coffee and juice and overheard a man asking a little boy if he was going to carry the pillow for him today and I thought to myself – yay! someone is getting married today. I glanced around only to see that it was my groom tom! I thought twice before going over to say hello - what with my yoga pants and flannel shirt glamour and all – but I did and he was clearly SO excited, smiling ear to ear. after changing into something a bit more appropriate for a wedding day, I drove to the home of sarah’s parents where we had shot their e-session. sarah was as excited as tom and beaming as I entered the room. we all caravaned to the wedding/reception location hayfield’s country club. this was my first time shooting there but hopefully not my last – it is so beautiful!!


sarah and tom decided to see each other before the wedding which if you follow this blog, you know I love. it’s exciting, spontaneous and intimate and has resulted in some of my favorite portraits of my couples, including tom and sarah.


sarah’s mother made all of the headpieces for sarah and her bridesmaids too - aren’t they amazing!! we told her that she needs to open an etsy shop :)

they decided on cheesecake (which they love) in lieu of a tradtional wedding cake which I thought was so cool – guests got to fill their sweet tooth with a custom ice cream sundae bar YUM!

sarah and tom left early the next morning for their honeymoon and I know they’re having an amazing time! you’re such a great couple and I had so much fun with you both. I wish you much love and look forward to seeing you again soon!
