Kristi & Dane Wedding

Kristi and Dane flew in from the Bahamas to get married in Fort Lauderdale. These lovebirds are perhaps the cutest couple to have chosen the Fort Lauderdale Woman's Club for their nuptials. The serene and beautiful venue was everything you’d want in the perfect backdrop for a memorable wedding. Yours truly was on hand to capture the moment and we’ve got some breathtakingly awesome pictures that vividly tell this wonderful love story. 

The delectable Kristi was dressed in her beautiful dress from Patricia South Bridal. Her father had passed away and her 2 sons gave her away in marriage. The handsome Daniel was dressed to the nines and one could clearly see how smitten he was with his lover. He’d flown in a surprise singer in the person of Glen Washington to surprise his bride. You can only imagine the mood and atmosphere in here. It was all shades of fun as I laughed all through the entire time all thanks to the witty and funny MC. It was indeed a pleasurable experience taking these beautiful shots. These beautiful pictures don’t lie! We can only wish Kristi and Dane many more happy and love filled years ahead.

Steven & Timothy Wedding

Get ready for a major dose of awesome, people! About three weeks ago, I had the distinct honor of photographing Mr. Myers-Yawnick and Mr. Bosch who tied the knot at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden  in Miami, FL! Needless to say (I mean… just look at the pictures), this whole shebang was absolute perfection from the early morning to late at night.

These two are so clearly in love, you guys. I wish you could have been there for the ceremony, because the tears were definitely flowing, and they were definitely real. It’s moments like this when you step back and remind yourself just how special and inspiring this kind of love is. After the formal stuff, we all headed over to Delano South Beach Hotel for the reception to celebrate and, as you can see, Steven and Timothy have impeccable taste.

SIGH. Your love is giving us all so much to aspire to, you two. Congratulations again!

Ariana & Khaleel Whimsical Wedding

One of my favorite parts of shooting a wedding is photographing all those tiny details the bride and groom clearly put a ton of thought and energy into. I mean, I am all about capturing the love and the first kiss and all those tender moments, but who can forget about the centerpieces, wedding favors, accent lighting and boutonnieres? Am I right?

Ariana and Khaleel’s wedding – held in May at Casa Ylang Ylang – was a veritable feast of such details, and I had the time of my life discovering and photographing it all! 

Look at that details of the entrance, wedding table, sweet heart table and ceremony! And how incredible are those details? 

Since they clearly thought of everything, I asked Ariana and Khaleel if they had any advice to offer other couples currently planning their own weddings. They said, " Don't stress, it should be fun, take it day by day, stay within your budget, and remember it's your day and not your guest. But mist important enjoy every moment.” Solid advice! 

Bravo, you two, and congratulations on officially tying the knot! Enjoy your honeymoon together and the many years that follow!

Marisa & Kyle Wedding

Heading to Living Sculpture Sanctuary for the Catalano & Christiansen wedding, I knew that it was going to be an extraordinarily special day. This gorgeous, incredibly in-love couple met 15 years ago and planned a sweet, intimate wedding shared between themselves and close family and friends. Walking in, I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful rustic decor right away, and more and more of those little details starting popping out.  And here we are, all this time later with a gorgeous wedding that’s exactly like how they planned, perfect in every way! I find that one of the best things about small weddings is that they lend themselves to especially tender moments. They also somehow feel a little more at ease, and that’s exactly what the vibe was on this beautiful day in April. I’ll leave you with a few more of my favorite moments from the day, and with a big congrats to the newlyweds!

Keka & Sam Wedding

Coming to you on the blog today is Keka and Sam’s February wedding, which is a serious contender for one of the most fun weddings I have ever photographed. From 3:00 pm in the afternoon when we started the day at Hilton Grand Vacations at McAlpin-Ocean Plaza while the Bride & Groom was getting ready, to the ceremony at Miami Shores Presbyterian Church, and then to the reception at Miami Shores Country Club the shenanigans ended at 11:00 pm in the night and with a VIP Uber waiting at the door for the Bride and Groom to take them away, it was a non-stop stream of laughing, dancing and merrymaking. (Do people say “merrymaking” still? If not, this wedding is definitely  bringing it back).  Here's a little slideshow of the highlights of this BEAUTIFUL Wedding. Enjoy!

These two lovebirds met at a bar called The Sandbar, well like they say the rest is history and have clearly been having the time of their lives ever since. And, as you’d expect, the bridesmaids and groomsmen were just as much fun. I mean, there are wedding parties… and then there are wedding PARTIES. Mingled in with the uproarious events were some genuinely sweet moments, too. I loved when their daughter was given the microphone to say a toast to her lovely parents. Just goes to show that fun and love go together really, really well. Congrats again, Keka and Sam, and is it too much to ask that you put me on the invite list for any of your future get-togethers…? Ha!
