Cold. It wasn’t even that cold, when you compare it to the weather we’ve had so far this winter…but it was still cold enough to be a little chilly.  Which was the perfect opportunity for him to snuggle this gorgeous girl.  Sonia and Adosh are a little bit of sweet and a lot of spice.  Watching them make each other laugh…and watching her tease Adosh warmed my heart.  I can’t wait for their wedding day.

They are naturally this affectionate.  It is adorable.

Alert.  For being so tiny…this little guy was very alert during his session…and aware of every movement being made around him…but no baby can resist the temptation to fall asleep in an 80+ degree room for too long…and we finally got him to close those beautiful eyes of his for a little while.  Baby N is going to be one of the most intelligent and loved children on this planet.  Not only are his parents wonderful and some of the most kind friends I have in my world…they are extremely intelligent.  He is one lucky little boy and I’m so excited he is finally here.

Naples.  They told me their wedding was going to be in Naples, Florida…and I instantly said yes!  I was so excited to go with this group to another destination wedding.  Every time I travel with these people it is a blast…  I have photographed most of their entire wedding guest list at one wedding or another… so, I knew it was going to be an amazing time. 

Courtney’s parents developed a beautiful hotel in Naples, called Bella Sera.  I highly recommend it if you are looking for a relaxing get away.  It is beautiful.  The day started out there…and then we moved over to the reception location at La Playa… 

The entire day was classy, beautiful, and so perfect.  Matt and Courtney are so passionately in love, it is fun to just sit and watch them together.  I adore them. 

Courtney was the most stunning bride…and her dress was gorgeous, one of my favorites of all time…when she showed me a sneak peak of her dress…I died with
excitement…Vera Wang…and of course…she had a gorgeous party dress for later in the night too…
Courtney, her mom, and her sister are so full of emotions…I could capture their facial expressions all day long…
So beautiful…
She wasn’t sure about going out on the beach…I made her.  So glad I did.
Sometimes you spill a little…it’s ok…
Ok – the dance party that I had planned in my head did not quite work, since no one seemed to know…What does the Fox say??
A moment of sunset before the ceremony…
Courtney’s dad was a big teddy bear…he may have shed a few tears…so sweet.
Their reception was just stunning…the balloons in the ceiling were the perfect finishing touch…
Ok – I am a sucker for the father daughter dance…but this one took the cake…
Courtney’s party dress.  Obviously, Matt is smitten.
And no one can dance quite like this pair of sisters…except for maybe me. 😉
Matt and Courtney – I LOVE YOU GUYS!!
Thank you so much for having me come to be a part of your day.

Beautiful.  She is just gorgeous.  On the inside and out.  She is such a sweetheart.  And she made the most lovely bride. It was obvious that Nate was so proud and happy to be marrying this girl.  During their ceremony they kept looking at each other and giggling.  It was a day full of love and laughter.

When I first met with Danielle and Nate, they brought their brand new baby who is already a little man now.  Time is fleeting … cherish every moment…

Look at this little heartthrob…
This was definitely my first “Weekend at Bernie’s” themed dance party…it is still cracking me up…
Needless to say, this group was a blast…
Look at how gorgeous this girl is…
My day with them ended after this little choreographed surprise from Danielle’s brother…aka wanna-be-bridesmaid…

Classy.  She’s classy and elegant and so refined.  She is one of the most graceful brides I’ve worked with… TJ is so lucky to be married to this gorgeous lady.

Liz & TJ’s entire day was relaxed and fun.  It seemed to flow seamlessly. Maybe it’s because they’ve been together for so many years and communication just happens naturally between them. 

TJ wore his grandpa’s watch on his wedding day.  He is the sentimental type…

Liz and TJ’s day started at the hospital where her dad was a doctor…it has a sweet little chapel and couldn’t have been more perfect.

It was the most beautiful fall day…
Liz’s talented sister designed their amazing programs…I had never seen anything like it before.  She even gave each bridesmaid their exact dress design…
TJ’s friend from college is now a priest…and he performed the ceremony…it made for a lot of special moments.
It was cold out, but the colors were stunning…
There were lots of hilarious moments on this day…thanks to a wedding party that wanted to get down with it…

My favorite picture from their entire day…
I could not get enough of this little beauty…
The Eau Claire Country Club was absolutely gorgeous…
Their dj had a few surprises up his sleeve…starting with a little smoke and ending with a spray of bubbles…

Liz & TJ…may you always be so deeply in love…
