Ashley + Matt | Best Western Island Palms

Mon, Sep 21 2015 09:33 | Permalink

Ashley & Matt are absolutely adorable! They had a beautiful wedding at the Best Western Island Palms on Shelter Island. Their day was filled with unique details such as a first look, wine box ceremony, and a sweet serenade by their great friends!

 Matt and his groomsmen showed off their superhero attire while Ashley and her bridesmaids were stunning in turquoise and pink! 

**** Wedding Idea:  In addition to the vows Matt and Ashley exchanged, they also chose to perform a wine box ceremony. The box contains a bottle of wine and love letters they wrote each other. The letters describe the good qualities they find in each other, the reasons they fell in love, and their reasons for choosing to marry. The letters have been sealed in individual envelopes and they have not seen what the other has written. 

Their officiant, Reverend Bob said, "You have created your very own "romantic" time capsule to be opened on your fifth wedding anniversary. I recommend that you keep the box in a place of honor prominently displayed in your home as a constant reminder of your commitment to each other. Matt and Ashley, should you ever find your marriage enduring insurmountable hardships, you are to as a couple, open this box, sit and drink the wine together, then read the letters you wrote to one another when you were united as a couple in marriage. By reading these love letters you will reflect upon the reasons you fell in love and chose to marry each other here today. The hope is, however, that you will never have a reason to open this box. And if this is the case, you are to open this box to share and enjoy on your fifth wedding anniversary! Matt and Ashley, you may now seal the box!"

Chelsea & Jonathan are one of the sweetest and most fun loving couples we have had! They truly enjoyed every moment of their wedding day. From the gift of being able to use Jonathan's Dad's Ford Falcon for their photos to the sweetest first look to their fun reception these two had the perfect day!
We love to shoot at The Lafayette because the building itself has such a unique personality.  Tons of old Hollywood history and unique California architecture, it was the perfect fit for the couple.
Check out their plant unity ceremony and cute cake topper!

A unique lego cake topper!

Alison + Matt | San Francisco Real Engagement

Tue, Jul 28 2015 10:41 | Permalink

Our couples come from all over and we love when we get a chance to visit where they are from.  When we found out they were from San Francisco we knew we had to do their engagement photos there!
We started at the Palace of Fine Arts where as you can see this stunning couple matched their surroundings. 


The Fort Point Overlook took our breath away!

We loved watching these two wow us against the skyline backdrop!

We can't wait for your wedding day!
