Be still my heart, this elegant red white black wedding, stole my breath away! There are a lot of people that will shy away from the color red, and I can never understand why! Red, especially wine red or burgundy, is actually one of my favorite wedding colors. The moment I see all those red details I jump up and down, and internally scream inside. I can’t help but get giddy!
The best part is when the red is evenly balanced by white, or another complimenting lighter color. This wedding was the perfect balance of white and red, with just a pop of greenery in all the centerpieces. Black tuxes with red vests, red bridesmaids dresses with white bouquets. Having the groomsman’s vests, and the bridesmaids dresses opposite each other was the perfect complement to each other, evening out the white and red colors.
Carly and David are one of the sweetest couples I have met. Both excited, yet staying so calm throughout the entire getting ready process. Anyone watching or who knew them, could see how nervous and excited they were. Their union couldn’t come fast enough.
Thankfully Carly and David had an amazing bridal party! Bridesmaids and groomsmen were running around taking care of things here and there, but almost nothing bad reached the couple. Which is how it should be!
My favorite parts though are, the details… obviously! A red, white, black, color palette so evenly distributed… so perfect. Tall gorgeous centerpieces add such a sense of elegance to any reception and ceremony. The way Carly and David looked at each other when neither were paying attention. How the groom cried when he saw Carly for the first time entering the church. But over all…I can’t get over her dress… stunning!
The soft blush colors Mollie picked for her wedding colors make this a perfect evening wedding. The bridesmaids dresses popped yet complimented the colors of the chapel. The entire time Mollie and her beautiful bridesmaids were getting ready they were laughing and having fun. Yet you could see that Mollie was trying to keep her composure!
As we arrived at the ceremony emotions were flying really high! Jonathan kept his outside composure as Mollie made her way down the aisle. I couldn’t help but tear up, thankful I was hiding behind my camera, as she came closer into view, and I could see tears welling in her eyes.
The reception was fun, full of laughter, and music! Family and friends celebrating with Mollie and Jonathan! As toasts were made more tears filled the room, followed by hugs, and laughter’s. Even though the dancing could have gone on all evening, it ended with sparklers, a kiss, and beautiful farewells as they went off on their honeymoon!
Congratulations Mollie & Jonathan! Thank you for letting me be a small part of your beautiful day!
I can’t begin to tell you how incredible Karla & Zach’s wedding was! From the very moment I arrived their excitement was contagious! They couldn’t wait to meet each other at the end of the aisle! The day was filled with so much joy and emotion I couldn’t help but cry along with the family!
From the decorations to the colors, to the dresses, tuxes, and jewelry, Karla couldn’t have picked better! I was in heaven capturing all her lovely details! The burgundy made the perfect complement to not only the ceremony but to the Tuscan room as well! Each color she chose popped well against it.
Their were tears during the ceremony, laughs during the reception, and farewells at the end as they ran off to their honeymoon! But I loved the time I got to spend with them alone for their portraits, and her fathers reaction as he walked her down the aisle and gave her hand to Zach. The love they have for each other poured out of them no matter what they were doing. They would look into each others eyes and get lost. It was fun reigning them back in! How can you get annoyed at something like that? The answer… you can’t! You just can’t!
Congratulations Zach and Karla, I am so thrilled I had the opportunity to capture this incredible part of your lives!
I love when our couples implement little themes into their wedding! Some are more subtle than others, but I love them none the less! This wedding was beautifully enhanced with the colors of Hufflepuff, a cake with a few golden snitches, along with a few of the decorations! Can anyone say Harry Potter Inspired? A dreamy elegant gold teal pink wedding!
Not only was it Harry Potter inspired, but she had more than one dress! Her beautiful lace wedding dress was for the beginning, and her sweet short party dress was for the reception. Unfortunately she was having so much fun, that she never got to wear her party dress!
They are such a sweet and loving couple, I wish them all the best!
