Nate and Emily are that kind of couple that everyone wants to be around, so I was so excited to capture their day. I arrived at Villa Parker and there was beauty everywhere. The ceremony and cocktail hour (which provided mojitos to all their guests before the wedding) was set up in the courtyard.
We had Emily get her dress on right in the entrance where light was streaming through the front windows. Her dress was breathtaking as it just flowed down to the ground. We then set up the first look in the garden area and I don’t think I’ve seen a groom get that emotional. It was beautiful in every way. The rest of the day went flawlessly from the ceremony to the reception. These two danced their entire reception – they left to only cut their cake for five minutes (which was one of the most beautiful, intricate cake set ups that I have ever seen.)

Tonya and Josh’s intimate elopement in Breckenridge, Colorado was all about having fun. The couple went dog sledding before saying their vows at the Ice Castles downtown. Tonya made her boho chic dress and decorations – talk about a laid back and talented bride!
Sarah, a Colorado girl turned New York tattoo artist, married Ryan, a Long Island native, last August at the incredible Crooked Willow Farms venue. Sarah wanted to show off her Colorado heritage to her Long Island friends and family. Sarah arrived at her ceremony via a beautiful black Stallion… no small feat, if you know anything about horses. There wasn’t a dry eye on that lawn that day, not even the minister’s. The couple ate their cake off Sarah’s PeeWee Herman plate from her childhood, and ate dinners off placemats designed by extra artistic couple.
