ARMOUR HOUSE WEDDING: CAROLINE + TOMMY

ARMOUR HOUSE WEDDING: CAROLINE + TOMMY

Caroline and Tommy are the definition of love.  When they look at each other, their eyes just light up and you just know they are the perfect match.  Caroline and Tommy met one New Years Eve. Caroline’s sister is married to Tommy’s best friend Ryan.  Ryan had a plan to set Tommy up with Laura’s sister Caroline so they could be related by being married to sisters.  Well, he didn’t have to try to hard, because sparks flew the first time they spoke, and together they had to be. To Tommy Caroline is the most perfect and beautiful woman in the world, and Tommy is the man she always dreamed of, with blues eyes that she can’t resist.  When couples are so in love, it makes my job easy, and a venue like Amour House is incredible.  This was my first time shooting there, and I loved the vintage feel of the library, the European feel of the columns as well as the dreaminess of all the outdoor landscape.

ROOM 1520 WEDDING: CARRIE + JEFF

ROOM 1520 WEDDING: CARRIE + JEFF

The stars were in line when Carrie and Jeff met, and undeniably someone watching from above played a hand in writing their love story!  Carrie is as sweet as she is beautiful and boy does Jeff adore her!  They opted to do a first look and upon first site, Jeff’s eye lit up seeing Carrie’s beauty! Carrie and Jeff’s kind spirit’s spill over into their beautiful children, who were a huge part of their celebration.  They have a modern blended family with three adorable children who stole the show with their dance floor moves. I loved shooting at Room 1520, the juxtaposition of the modern clean chic inside with some urban gritty outside photos paired with an insanely wonderful couple was a photographers dream!

My jaw literally dropped when I saw how absolutely stunning Nicole looked in her wedding gown.  I have known Nicole for over a decade, and never have I seen her more gorgeous and happy than on the day that she married her one true love Adam.  Everything about them together is perfect, their love for each other, the way they make each other smile and together they make up one of the best looking couple ever!
