Last weekend I got to spend the day with another one of my wonderful couples - Tiffany and John - and it was awesome! I could gush on and on about this couple, but then the post would be super long! Let’s suffice it to say - I just love these two! They are such a sweet couple who are perfectly matched! They are so in love and have such wonderful and amazing personalities that I have no doubt that they will have a long and full marriage filled with so much love and happiness. They were surrounded by equally as awesome friends and family on their wedding day, which made it so much fun to document!
I started off with the girls at the Hilton Garden Inn, where Tiffany’s mom was doing everybody’s hair and the girls were doing makeup for each other. Everybody looked gorgeous - Tiffany’s mom did the most beautiful hair! Tiffany’s hair was just perfect - it brought her whole look together! She was a gorgeous bride!
From there we headed over to Ceresville Mansion, where everybody got dressed and I got a little face time with the guys too.
Tiffany and John decided not to spend money on gifts for one another….but Tiffany is a girl of many talents and drew John a picture! I think he liked it - a lot!
Tiffany and John decided to do a ‘reveal’ in advance of the ceremony which gave us lots of time to take tons of photos of them together and it took the edge off before the ceremony, which was good. I love when couples do a ‘reveal’ - I get to capture their reaction to seeing each other for the first time!
I think John was thrilled to see his beautiful bride!
I love to do all those casual portraits - and Tiffany and John set it up so that we had lots of time for that…
Isn’t she adorable?!
Tiffany and John wanted to shoot outdoors a little bit during the ceremony….I’m so glad! I love these shots!
This one we shot at the very end of the night - LOVE IT!
and the guys….
The wonderful Laura Canon, one of my favorite ministers, performed a truly custom ceremony for Tiffany and John that was so wonderful and heartfelt. John was holding back the tears the entire time - which always makes me get a bit teary! His love for Tiffany is so apparent and these two are so lucky to have each other.
When the groom gets like this I always tear up a bit….
After the ceremony it was time to party! I really felt like I was surrounded by an all-star group of vendors - in addition to Laura Canon, one of my favorites, I was joined by the always awesome Evan Rittmeyer from MyDeejay.com who kept the music going and the dance floor hopping all night long. In addition Da Vinci’s Florist created beautiful florals for the day and another delicious cake by Artistis Desserts.
The toasts were extra touching at Tiffany and John’s wedding - lots of happy tears and very heartfelt thoughts for the couple…
Some first dance action…
I believe that John was given very specific instruction NOT to smash cake….but wouldn’t you know that the cake would fall OFF the fork and down Tiffany’s dress?! LOL!
The dance floor was full and fun!
Kristen and Jared are extra special to me - I had the privilege of photographing their wedding a year ago and are the reason why I was blessed to befriend Tiffany and John! Tiffany and Kristen are in medical school together and are supposed to be studying for boards right now!! (I hope you are studying right now girls!!)
And you know I love the details…..
Tiffany found these antique pins for the girls bouquets - they were gorgeous!
And what better way to end the night than with a delicious looking candy buffet?
It was a truly wonderful day and I really felt blessed to share it with Tiffany and John! Here a just a few of my favorites, but CLICK HERE to see their slideshow!
Tiffany and John - I wish you all the happiness and success in the world! You are two very special people with whom I am glad that I have gotten to know. I had a blast photographing your wedding day and look forward to getting together again soon! HUGS!
