Karina & Tom | One Year Later

It's crazy to think an entire year has passed since Karina and Tom said "I Do"! May 22, 2016 was a perfect day. The bride, groom, and their families all pitched in to make this Sunday evening, DIY wedding one they would always remember.

Maid of Honor, twin sister of the bride, Maria, did her beautiful makeup. Maria's boyfriend (now fiancé, congrats!), Brooklyn artist, Erik Jones, performed their ceremony. The mother of the bride cooked tamales for all the guests. Many other family members took time to assemble their flowers that morning. All to make it the most beautiful celebration of love for these newlyweds.

My favorite part about Karina and Tom's wedding day was how simple they wanted to keep everything. The whole day really was all about celebrating their love and new lives together. This truly reflected who they are as a couple.

Congratulations Karina & Tom! Happy one year anniversary!

Take a look back below. 

Emma & Connor | New Jersey Glam Wedding

"There may be something there that wasn't there before." - Beauty and the Beast

You may remember Emma and Connor from their midtown Manhattan engagement session this past spring. We spent an amazing, chilly afternoon exploring the city streets near their studio apartment. (Read about how they met unexpectedly and see their photos here!

Fast forward to the Friday before Thanksgiving 2016, just as the sun began to set, when they became husband and wife. Over the last five years their closest friends and family members from coast to coast have surrounded, supported, and celebrated them. On November 18th, they all came together to share in the love of one of the happiest, most wonderful couples I have ever known. It was such an honor to witness and capture all the special moments throughout their romantic, glamorous wedding day, with just a touch of Disney magic.

"Please, be our guest!" - Beauty and the Beast

There were so many stunning details which made Emma and Connor's wedding unique. They shared many laughs during their sunset unity sand ceremony. Cocktail hour featured an ice sculpture of the Enchanted Rose, along with themed signature drinks. One of the best men played guitar and sang Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" during their first dance. The most special detail was how much love you could feel!

Emma and Connor are meant to be. She is the Beauty to his Beast, he is all the books in her library. Congratulations to this happy couple!
