Lots of late work nights mean that I am putting up TWO count ’em TWO wedding blogs in one week! I can’t say this will happen again any time soon. Big thanks to all of my couples still waiting for their photos out there. Your patience is appreciated more than you know! I promise we are working as fast as we can, but there are only so many hours in a day. That reminds me, does anyone know what physicist I need to check in with to see if we can add a few more hours to a day and a few more days to the standard calendar? I will be eagerly awaiting responses!
Elizabeth and David were married in August, but it wasn’t nearly as hot as it was for my other couple I blogged this week. Still, it was August, so it was nice that all of the getting ready, first look and family photos took place at Elizabeth’s family home. We were able to just take a few little steps out into the yard, shoot for a few minutes, and head back in out of the heat just before people begin to melt. Perfect! Plus it adds a little something personal to the day don’t you think? After photos everyone gathered in the dining room for the signing of the Ketubah. A tradition I love so much it makes me wish I was Jewish. After some tears and some laughter we jetted over to Moulin for a few more fun urban pics of the wedding party before the big ceremony! They were married under a birch Chuppah from Exclusive Events covered in flowers by Artistry florist with little floating glass candles hanging all around. The rounded out the evening surrounded by family and friends toasting and dancing the night away. All in all a perfect day thanks to our dear friend Simcha Lourie and team! I hope you enjoy the pics!
All of the ladies relaxed and happy.
If you look hard enough you can see me in this one. ;)
Gorgeous stationary set from M Haley Designs.
Bridesmaid assembly line! And a mirror that tells you that you look beautiful.
This dress looks like it was made for Elizabeth.
Gorgeous ladies and gents of the wedding party. I’m a big fan of the classy navy and white color scheme.
Just a few more pretty portraits.
David I love that face. You look like you’re up to something. ;)
It was such a nice and relaxed schedule with everything happening in one place. That means we had time for moments like these to happen.
Ketubah signing tears.
And smiles. ;)
Arriving at Moulin in style!
I never get bored with reflection shots.
A little homage to Bridesmaids the movie.
Gorgeous chuppah up close.
I have never seen the room set up this way at Moulin with all rectangular tables. Loved it!
Tables named after ski runs! Is it ski season yet? I’m feeling the itch.
I love it when the reception schedule is all mixed up and guests dance between courses!
And then rest their feet for a few toasts.
Hora! So fun. One of my other favorite Jewish traditions.
Congratulations to you both and best wishes for years to come! With love, Liz
