I had been looking forward to this wedding all year! ever since my friends, scot and jean, told me that their daughter, hannah, was getting married, my journey with them to this day began. first there was their engagement session where I got to know them so much better and was introduced to their four-legged child, cato, who did his best (and at times succeeded!) in stealing the show. we worked on their save-the-dates together and had some follow up meetings before the beautiful fall day when they were to be wed arrived. hannah, her mom, her sisters, and best friends were abuzz in the suite as preparations were underway. hannah couldn’t help but soak it all in and would exclaim ‘you all look so beautiful!’ as she gazed at her ladies, even tearing up once her mother got dressed. meanwhile, nick and his gents were getting all dapper down the hall. the carnegie was just down the street from the hotel, so everyone enjoyed the gorgeous day as the wedding party walked to the venue. their first look was one of my favorites ever. as nick turned around to see his bride, they both stepped back in amazement.. which was quickly followed by a tight embrace, some tears, and many kisses. the ceremony took place in the rotunda which is so beautiful and as hannah descended the grand staircase, nick could barely keep it together. the vows that they wrote for each other were the perfect blend of heartfelt promises and sweet + funny declarations. as they sealed forever together with a kiss, all of their friends and family stood and cheered. now.. as the reception began, I must tell you about the toasts. first, hannah’s dad, scot, gave one of the best welcomes I’d ever had the pleasure of documenting. and nick’s best man addressed the guests with funny stories about his friend as well as sharing sincere well wishes. but it was hannah’s sister, elyza, that had a little something up her sleeve. once she completed her toast, which was awesome all by itself – she delighted the crowd with a serenade that she had written specifically for hannah and nick and it was amazing! the dance floor filled up quickly and everyone partied the night away.. even extending the festivities late into the night. hannah and nick, I am so very happy for you and wish you all of the love and happiness the world has to offer. you are such a special couple and I am so honored that you asked me to document your wedding day xoxo
