Choumate & Berthony Wedding

Choumate & Berthony  met on Christmas Eve 14 years . Berthony says that as soon as he heard the name Choumate, he knew she would be his wife.  Choumate said he was so shy at first and she knew his soul was pure.  They were best friends for two years before they started dating and even though it's been 14 years, they still say that everyday is like the first day.   He proposed on December 31 one minute before midnight, and asked her to promise him that they will see a lifetime together. He actually proposed after having a late snack at Denny’s!!  And with that I knew this wedding was going to be a dream to capture.  There was lots of hustle and bustle when I arrived to the bride and her ladies.  Berthony and his guys were very relaxed. 

From the first look, this couple never stopped smiling the entire day. Watching and documenting this kind of love and happiness is why I do what I do. They said their I do’s in a beautiful outdoor ceremony surrounded by their dearest friends and family.  The beautiful fairy lights in the trees at the venue made the moments throughout the service truly beautiful to photograph. Berthony and Choumate know how to make entrance and they definitely know how to make an exit.  After the dancing was done, they left the reception through a tunnel of sparkler holding friends and family.  The black and white theme was brought all the way through to the reception decor and the most stunning jet black cake  I loved photography all of the gorgeous details they had painstakingly picked out for their special day. 

Congratulations Choumate and Berthony, thank you for asking me to be part of your amazing day. I wish nothing but the best for you both as you begin your life as husband and wife.

Pauline & Brian Wedding

“A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.” Max Muller

Pauline and Brian met at a charity event. When Pauline walked in, she immediately noticed a very, very handsome man. They were introduced and in just a few moments they were both smitten. The rest, as they say, is history!

They got engaged on a trip to Boston. Brian said he wanted to look at the boats in the harbor and she really wanted to go to see the penguins. With a stunning waterfront view and some sea lions as onlookers, Brian slipped a ring on her finger and said, "Would you rather see the penguins or be Mrs. Brian Chippendale Gale?" She did both. Such a cute story! And that brings us here to today's amazing wedding at The Addison. This exquisite venue is considered one of the most important pieces of architecture in South Florida. And I totally understand why. Settled near the gorgeous beaches of Palm Beach County this venue is unique among Boca Raton wedding venues. I just love it!

I always love to capture the wedding preparations. Lots of fun, a little nerves and a lots of laughter. Pauline is a beautiful bride and her squad of bridesmaids looked amazing in green. Brian and his crew of groomsmen looked very much the part in their crisp white shirts and waistcoats (and crazy yellow socks!) Oh, and the bride wore sneakers! How cool is that!? From their excited first look right through to the sparkler of a wedding exit, this day was one of fun, laughter and so much love. My day was filled with romantic captures and lots of sillyness on the side.

Congratulations Brian and Pauline! It was my honor to be a part of your special day and capture all of the beautiful moments as you start your journey as husband and wife.
