Married: Abby & Ryan at The Branford House (Part I)
She sat in the car as he held on to her hand. The unusually warm salt air breeze criss-crossed gracefully between the two and danced circles with her veil. She caught his eye and smiled, and then they laughed with their whole hearts. He squeezed her hand a little tighter and looked back just one more time. He couldn't believe how beautiful she looked. How grown up. This day had been a long time coming. And who could blame him for wanting to hold on for just a little while longer?
The doors closed as he held on to her hand. The unusually warm tux tugged at his neck. Or was that his heart? He really couldn't tell. She caught his eye and smiled, and then they laughed with their whole hearts. He squeezed her hand a little tighter and looked over just one more time. He couldn't believe they were standing there. That this moment was finally upon them. This day had been a long time coming. And who could blame him for wanting to hold on for just a little while longer?
He kissed her face and held both cheeks in his hands. The unusually warm sun cast streams of golden light through the windows and chased after them down the aisle. As they burst through the doors into the bright light outside she caught his eye and smiled, and then they laughed with their whole hearts. He squeezed her hand a little tighter and looked down at his new band just one more time. He couldn't believe how beautiful she looked. How perfect she was for him. He pulled her close to him and thought about never letting go. And who were we to argue. This day had been a long time coming.
And who could blame him for wanting to hold on just a little while longer?
Married: Abby & Ryan
Abby & Ryan were married this last Saturday at the beautiful Branford House (which also just happens to be the place where Justin & I got married. So it's ok if we're a little biased!) These two are just amazing people- the kind of people who make you a better version of yourself just by being around them. And I am happy to report that they got a day to match. The day was perfect. The location was perfect. And Abby & Ryan, you two were just ...perfect. Thank you so much for being not only our clients, but more importantly, now our friends.
We love you!
It took me a full two days (and very little sleep) to narrow down their pictures this far and I STILL had to break it up into two parts! Yea, it was that kind of good! So feast your eyes on Part I and Part II will be up shortly!
**I know we're going slightly out of order on our shoots, but I also know there are a TON of friends & family from the wedding who are dying to see these. So bear with us....we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow!
The flowers were absolutely INSANE! I adored them! And couldn't stop shooting them!
Abby was absolutely stunning! I grabbed this shot and the next pair.
Abby put a penny on each shoe with the years that she & Ryan were born. How cool is that?
LOVE this shot Justin grabbed of Abby's dad getting ready to go to the ceremony.
The handsome groom! (Justin grabbed this one)
I grabbed all of the following shots with Abby & her dad.
LOVE this moment between Abby & her dad.
Check out these awesome flowers! (these next two sets are mine)
So, you long time blog readers just might remember Julia of "Julia & Mike" looking like this from their crazy gorgeous wedding HERE. Seriously, how stunning is she?!
And SINCE it just so happens that their crazy gorgeous wedding is also being featured on the main page of Style Me Pretty today..... (which we are so excited about!! Thank you SO much Eddye....you're the BEST!! Seriously, ever.)
...we thought it would be the perfect time to finally unveil that, just like Bruce Wayne and Batman, Julia and "The Apprentice" are in fact one and the same! Only now, she's burning it up BEHIND the camera, as well as in front. Check out her stealthy moves!!
We are so excited to announce that we have officially hired Julia as our full time second shooter, so she will be with us at almost every single wedding this year. Rockin' out shots and keeping us sane. I don't think there could be a better fit for us. We love you Julia!
So could you all help a girl out in giving Julia a great big bear hug warm welcome to the blog? We would REALLY appreciate it! :) :)
Our season officially kicked off yesterday in style! Beautiful weather, beautiful couple, beautiful location. Oh yea, I think it's a good sign of things to come!
And here's a lil' self-portrait of us and "The Apprentice" in action:) More on that to come!!
And with a new wedding season comes the ritual of the new wedding shoe. The ones you see on the left are from the wear and tear of just one season last year. And the ones on the right are J's new kicks for the year. I wonder how long they'll stay like that! See that's why I prefer to buy multiple pairs of shoes....y'know for the wear and tear.
She's an up and coming actress and model, who is as beautiful on the inside as she is the out. She had us cracking up the whole day! And it's pretty safe to say, she got it honest. Lindsay just happens to be the oldest daughter of Ann Nyberg...an amazing lady who is always as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out. And who can ALWAYS crack us up! Keep an eye on these two....trust me when I say, they are poised to take this world by storm!
Ann & Lindsay, we love you both! And we are lucky to call you friends!
Special thanks to Brianne Campbell who came down from the Hallmark Institute to rock this shoot with us!!
And just for fun, thought we'd play a little "whose are whose" on this one. These first two are Justin's....
and this one is mine.
early on in our shoot we found this KILLER super-secret gray wall and we just didn't want to leave! Obviously, we made both Lindsay and Brianne sign a non-disclosure agreement as to where exactly it is! :P
Col. Sandurz: Prepare the ship for light speed!
Dark Helmet: No, no, no, light speed is too slow!
Col. Sandurz: Light speed, too slow?!
Dark Helmet: Yes, we're gonna have to go right to . . . LUDICROUS speed!
Col. Sandurz: Ludicrous speed?! Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't know if the ship can take it.
Dark Helmet: What's the matter Colonel Sandurz? Chicken?
Wowza. I'm not sure when exactly this happened. But somewhere in the past week one of us must've blinked, and suddenly (and just like that) the crazy busy season is upon us! I don't know about you guys, but I definitely could've used another snooze button on the alarm clock 'o life!
But hey, that's ok because crazy busy ALSO just happens to mean crazy awesome. And that's exactly the kind of people we've been shooting this past week! I can't wait to show you guys what we've been up to. But right now we're running out the door for an engagement shoot, and then our wedding season officially kicks off with the weekend wedding of Abby & Ryan tomorrow and Saturday, just before we finish up with an engagement shoot in Boston on Monday. Whew!
Yea, like I said...Wowza. We're definitely skipping right over light speed and ratcheting it up to ludicrous speed.
But I say Bring it On. Beyonce's sister in the sequel style. Cause we're not Chicken.
**And just for kicks, here's a lil sneaky peak of what's on deck!! Or is it Who's on First?! :)
