Married: Suzanne & Justin

She rounded the corner and the room somehow got even brighter. Lighter. More full of love. Her curls danced pretty pirouettes down the middle of her back, as she hugged her dress close to her. Her eyes filled with tears, and in that moment she was all that's light and everything that's beautiful. She looked around the room and couldn't believe what she was seeing. Everything was as she'd pictured it. Everything she'd hoped for was there. And if there was ever a doubt that there's such a thing as perfection...

She had the proof right there.

She rounded the corner and the mood somehow got even brighter. Lighter. More full of love. Her veil danced pretty priouettes down the middle of her back, as she hugged him close to her. He looked at her and his eyes filled with tears. Because in that moment she was all that's light and everything that's beautiful. He looked across the lawn and couldn't believe what he was seeing. Everything was as he'd pictured it. Everyone he'd hoped for was there. He squeezed her hand a little tighter, and if there was ever a doubt in his mind that there's such a thing as perfection....

He had the proof right there.


Married: Suzanne & Justin


These two were married at The Branford House on a day filled with golden light. The sun had some small part to play in that, but anyone who was there could tell you that the real light was coming from Suzanne & Justin. Because they are just those kind of people. The kind of people who shine from the inside out, and you could just swear that you actually feel the warmth on your face just standing in their presence.

Suzanne & Justin, it was an honor and a privilege to be there with you on your day. You are the kind of people Justin & I can only hope to be like one day. And I hope you know the change that you've had on our life just by us being able to call you our friends. We can't wait to see you again next month for your "day after" session!! And I'm absolutely certain that mashed potato pizza must be involved!

Alright, on with the show!! Justin was with Justin (trippy!) while Julia & I were with Suzanne.



This tie is a most important tie. Because it was the very first thing that Suzanne & Justin decided on for their wedding and it became the central theme that everything else revolved around! It *IS* a pretty awesome tie!



Suzanne's stunning Nicole Miller gown. It was such a unique and beautiful dress and was absolutely perfect in every way.



Suzanne was super psyched to finally be able to put it on!



This necklace was also very important! It was a Ralph Lauren necklace that was her something borrowed (from a friend that works at RL)...



...and also her something blue! Gorgeous!



Uh, and speaking of GORGEOUS!!



And let's just go ahead and shift right into cuteness overload. Ready? GO!





Suzanne & her mom wait for the ceremony to start



The flower girl was waiting it out too.



Suzanne's mom walked her to the beginning of the aisle, where Justin was waiting on her.



Here we go!!





Suzanne & Justin had maybe one of the coolest ceremonies EVER, complete with a reading from Calvin & Hobbes. :) It was very emotional!!





As soon as the ceremony is over, we grab our couples and give them some time to just soak it all in, while we drop back and shoot with long lenses. That moment....that omigosh, we're MARRIED moment....is so amazing and not something you can ever get back. I just LOVE to watch that feeling sink in for them....and as you can see it's often super emotional for US and the couple! :)



The handsome fellas....





and the beautiful ladies!





Seriously, have you ever seen such a good looking bridal party?? I think not.



Justin & his brother being....what else....EPIC!! :)



Then we got some time with Suzanne & Justin all to ourselves! And....it got pretty!!



supah-doopah pretty!



I absolutely loved her wrap...the color was amazing.









A little cha-cha...and merengue



Justin makes one good lookin' groom, right?! And how 'bout that tie??



Instead of a cake, they did different flavors of cupcakes (More on that to come!!)







And then it was time for the first dance. Suzanne's brother in law sang them a live version of "Question" by the Old 97's and he was AMAZING!! He is such a talented artist!!









Then Justin's brother rocked out an awesome toast. He looks so 1940s chic to me right here!





The Branford House is so gorgeous inside....LOVE this super huge fireplace.



And then THIS was the big surprise of the night! Justin shoots video for Dateline NBC and as a big surprise gift to Suzanne he put together this whole "news story" of their lives together and the upcoming wedding. He had the Dateline news anchors in on it, as well as a bunch of their friends & family for interviews.

It. Was. AMAZING. Incredible! Insane! I kept peeking out of the corner of my eye, but I totally had to keep shooting because the reactions were priceless. PRICELESS!!



LOVE these two!! (And I'm not talking about the pictures!)



And finally....the incredible Branford House at night. We're out for now, but stay tuned for all of the killer details coming soon!!!
