Lee + Marissa | Renaissance Grand Wedding
Sometimes it rains all day long when you get married. If you are smart, you do not care about this tiny insignificant details, because it is in fact your wedding day, aka the day you marry your most favorite person in the universe, so bring it on universe. I mean that was the feeling I got as I walked into Marissa + Lee’s wedding day – beaming smiles from ear to ear, no worries in sight, all happy exciting nerves ready to get the marriage started : ) And I loved that feeling that I got right away, because it reconfirmed to me that these were my kind of clients, those beautiful humans all about each other, and less about the rest. Truly, I adore that about the beautiful people that I get to work with, it is such a privilege – thanks for being super awesome everyone! Anyway, this day was made in the stars, I mean these two could not be more perfect for each other. You guys–I’m still talking about their vows, like I want to frame and hang them in my house. They were incredible, and funny, and loving, and truthful, and I mean perfect. Oh man I am just gushing on these two, so enough out of me on to the photos of their stunning day!!!! Obsessed. And then it was first look time : ) : ) : ) Show it off girl, show it offffffff!

You two laughing together is contagiously fun : ) This guy, the dapperest. I mean, we all want to frame this one right? Total babes : ) Ohhhhhhhh my heart. Ya’ll killed it.
