I have been waiting on this wedding for over a year. When I met with Elizabeth for her consultation, I was so excited to hear of all her details and how everything was coming together.

When we shot their engagement session, it was SO much fun!! I have to admit I am not a morning person, but when she said she wanted to do a sunrise session, I jumped on it. You can see those images here.

Their wedding day started with the girls getting ready at the Crowne Plaza, and then heading to the St. Peter of the Apostle and then back to the Crowne for the reception.

What was the most memorable part of your day? The dancing with all of our guests! We had a dance off during “Happy” by Pharrell!

Any advice for future Brides/Grooms? Relax! The day goes by too fast to be stressed over the little things! Enjoy the moment while it lasts!

What was the funniest part of your day? During the ceremony I put John’s ring on the wrong finger! It made for some laughs! And, John left his luggage in the taxi cab!

Did you do a first look? We wanted to stay traditional, so we decided against the first look. We waited until the ceremony to see each other for the first time. I’m glad we didn’t, we got to share that moment with everyone we love!

Would you change anything? I wish I would have planned more time for photos between the ceremony and reception, but other than that we wouldn’t have changed a thing!
