I remember being so excited while listening to Mary and George tell me their love story over coffee at Le Pain Quotidien. Finally, another girl who said "I love you" first! We both told our fellas that we loved them around the one-year mark in our relationships! I felt like I was meeting my long-lost soul sister! :)
Mary and George had one goal for their wedding: it needed to be easy for guests so they could have fun and enjoy the day! One of the ways they made things easy was to keep all the wedding events in one location. The getting ready time, ceremony, and reception were all held at the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook, NY.
Mary gave each of her girls an etched glass to remember the day!
Mary, are you for real?! You are way tooooo gorgeous!
Thanks to the lovely Tina Elizabeth for assisting me all day long and for spending the morning with George! Love these two images!
It had been raining all morning and the forecast predicted that it would keep raining all day and night. Knowing the forecast, I asked some prayer warrior friends of mine to pray that the sun would come out even if just for 10 minutes during our portrait time with the couple! Well, God is good and we had sunshine for the entire First Look and portrait time!! :)
Succulents are pretty much my new favorite thing, so I love that Mary and George gave them as wedding favors!
I guess we should have been praying against rain during the ceremony too, but Mary and George know how to enjoy any situation! :)
Love this super sweet moment between Mary's mom and George's mom...
When time allows for it during the wedding day, I try to surprise all of my couples with a same-day slideshow of some of their wedding highlights! They loooove it! Then, I put the slideshow by the bar or cake table so guests can see it too! :)
It's not a good night if people don't end up rolling around on the floor!
want a daily dose of pretty?
