Ahhhhh, where do I even start with these two?!  Steph and Tess are two of the most loving people I had ever met.  Honestly, I feel so lucky they found me.  Their love is beautiful.  It’s the kind of love that when you see it, it sticks around in your heart for a while.  I’m smiling as I type this :)  Additionally, they hired me because they loved my work and love photography, not just because they needed a photographer.  And for an artist, that’s pretty much the biggest compliment you can give someone!  I was lucky enough to get to know them and follow along with them throughout their engagement, so when I showed up on their chilly wedding day, I felt like a family member watching their giddiness.
Their wedding was at the San Marino Club – this was special because Stephanie’s beloved grandmother was an original member.  When we got there, we didn’t have a ton of time for photos, so I took them down a random hallway and took the cover photo.  I love it because you can feel the love and the emotion *just* before they were married.  And then there was their receptions.  These families LOVE to dance!  Like I couldn’t stop smiling because they were so.much.fun and with Tess’ side living so far away, it truly was a celebration!  *sigh* so good.  Steph and Tess, I’ve already told you a few times, but I just cannot thank you enough for being you.  Your love is uniquely special and I am so lucky to have gotten to know you.  Cheers to you both!  xo, e

Their wedding in 3 words:   Love, Family & Food
At the San Marino Club there is a staircase that the bride walks down to get to the beginning of the alter. Growing up going to the San Marino Club on a weekly basis , this was a staircase I would run up and down countless times. Running and playing with my sister and cousins. As an adult I have even walked the those same stairs in other family member’s weddings. But, on our wedding day, my favorite memory, is standing at the top of those very stairs , with my Dad holding me tight, staring at my wife-to-be down below. She was waiting there for me. I remember copying in her breath in-and-out and getting lost in her beauty. I wasn’t able to see anything but her. My dad asked me if I was ready, and I just remember thinking, “yes, lets go!” And this time, I could not get down the stairs fast enough.
Really the whole day. Stephanie and I worked so hard organizing our wedding before hand to have a really stress free day of and I think we made it happen. We had the time to really treasure a lot of really special moments with our family and each other. We finally had a chance to relax and just enjoy ourselves at this massive project we had finally completed. The whole day was like that and I loved every minute of it.
Over prepare. The day of your wedding (really the week of) you’ll be busy with family and stressed because its a big day. Just have everything ready to go. Bag everything up so you can bring it to the venue and set up is easy . Have everything paid for two weeks early, three or more if they will let you. Have someone else (or a car service) pick people up at the airport. Take some days off before you get hitched. Do what you can to stay calm and relaxed, the hardest part is the anticipation – once the day is here its flies by so you’ll want to not be distracted so you can actually enjoy it. And remember the best thing you can invest in are the people who help make your day run smooth without you. You want to be able to soak it all in that day, because in the blink of an eye its over.
We bought a house instead of going on a Honeymoon – Adulting at its best.

Quite frankly, our wedding was wonderful. The one we had been dreaming of for years. It evolved into something so special and so true to who we are as people, that it almost felt magical. Our wedding is probably be the only time both sides of our families will ever be together due to distance and location that was made it even more special. It was an amazing night that not only allowed us to celebrate with all the people we love, but also allowed all of those people to know how important they are to both of us. Erin captured all of those special moments that we will treasure for years and years. She made everyone comfortable, and by the end of the night quite a few people wanted to adopt her : ). Photography is an art and it is always a pleasure to work with someone who is a true artist. We have joked about what makes a wedding special, but we have always agreed it is the love that brings you there, the family that got you there, and memories you make with both. Erin captured those memories with such grace. Thank you, Erin.
