“I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.” —F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

I just couldn’t WAIT for this day to come, and man, it way exceeded my expectations. Every detail of this day was beautiful and so special. The bride’s bouquet was full of trinkets from her mother and grandmother and from the groom’s family members too. The venue was absolutely PERFECT for the theme—I about fell over when I walked outside to the ceremony location and saw the view. How amazing that it sat on the water just like the Gatsby mansion. Love!!!

It was also just one of the funnest weddings I’ve ever been to. I cried during the dances, laughed during the toasts, and just enjoyed every second of the day. It’s one I will never forget!

Enjoy my favorite portraits, and be sure to leave them a big congratulations!! They’re officially married!!
