They sat at my kitchen table and we got to know each other over chicken noodle soup and chocolate chip cookies. It was just 6 days before their wedding when I finally was able to sit down and formally meet Marty and Tim and I could sense their excitement from the moment I opened the door. They told me their story, and I got so excited that their wedding was just 6 days away! So often when I meet with a couple it will be months, or sometimes a full year, before I get to see them again. But hearing all about their relationship right before I got to document their day made me that much more excited to capture it, to put names with faces of family members that I had just heard all about, and celebrate the fact that these two people who love each other so deeply were finally tying the knot! Marty and Tim, thank you for sharing your lives with me and your friendship! Hope you ended up finding lots of pretty scenery, good coffee shops, and tons of pasta in Italy :0)
Marty was ready to go the moment I walked in the door and had all her gorgeous details ready to go! They arranged the flowers themselves! Aren’t they beautiful?
holy moly, Marty, you are SUCH a stunning bride!! as Marty’s sister in law was trying to pin the inside of her dress, her niece got such a kick out of the “mountain” under her dress ;0) Tim and Marty opted for a first look so we could take their portraits while there was still natural light outside, and as always I love when a couple choses to see each other before the ceremony!! I love how excited they were to see each other for the first time :0) These next few shots are my favorites from the day: my favorite:
love this shot of their wedding party: Their flower girl had me laughing ALL day! The first time she walked in the room they asked her how her uncle Tim looked and she simply replies, “He’s STYLIN!” :0) Now here she is waving to her adoring fans as she walks down the aisle:
Marty did all the centerpieces herself and I thought they turned out so great! love this from their first dance:potentially one of my all time favorite daddy/daughter dance shots:
one last favorite shot to end with:Hope you had a WONDERFUL time in Italy!! Here’s your slideshow :0)
