August 23, 2014 Rennie Wedding

I try not to be too repetitive in these Wedding posts, as it’s just too easy to say that every wedding I’ve photographed was beautiful and personal and so very touching…. because they are. They really all are, despite how completely different each and every Wedding is, I’m always brought to tears by someone, I’m always excited to catch the little details that have thoughtfully been put into the day, and there’s always a look on the Groom’s face, or sometimes maybe just his eyes, when he sees his Bride that I just live to capture.

This Wedding was no different. Except it was.

Paul and Abbie (ok, mostly Abbie, but Paul did help!) put so much thought into every detail of their Wedding Day. What started out as a “no theme” Wedding, quickly turned into this crafty, shabby chic, kind of beautiful DIY Wedding theme. It couldn’t have been more perfect, and was amazing to capture.

Their ceremony, officiated by a close childhood friend of Abbie’s, with readings from another friend, as well as Paul’s daughter, were heartfelt and touching, and, you guessed it – I found myself teary and desperate to blink them away so as not to miss a moment!

Then there’s the look. Paul may have been wearing sunglasses, but his smile was clearly ear to ear from the moment he laid eyes on her. I imagined him recalling that sign in his head; ‘Yep, here comes my girl.’

So how was it different?

Paul’s Best Man was truly man’s best friend. His dog walked him up the aisle and stood by his side. Instead of a flower boutonniere, she wore a burlap ‘Best Dog’ handkerchief of sorts, and she wore it well!

Paul and Abbie also had the only ceremony that I’ve ever photographed, or even witnessed, that started off with a selfie! It was hilarious, seemed to lighten pre-ceremony jitters, and even tapped into my strange love of photographing people taking photos… win!

I honestly can’t say enough about Paul & Abbie’s Wedding Day (clearly). It was such a beautiful day, filled with love, laughter and smiles throughout, a great reflection of who Paul and Abbie are, and it was all shared by happy, supportive and loving family and friends…

Who could ask for more?

July 14, 2014 Nash Wedding

This is how it started….

A lot of good ol Pinterest and a recreated vision for Save the Dates, that suited Dan and Jenna just perfectly.

19 1024x512 Nash Wedding

It was like…. they had me at “Hello”.

Seriously though… I couldn’t wait to share in Dan and Jenna’s  Wedding Day, and was so excited to be able to capture it all for them!

As expected, the day was filled with many beautiful and thoughtful details, as well as lots of fun, loving, laughing, silly people. We all know that I love the thought in the details, but truly, it’s being surrounded by great people that really makes the day so special and memorable.

Jenna, of course, was not only a stunningly beautiful bride, but was full of laughs and smiles (& maybe a few monkey noises….) throughout the day. There were some teary moments, though happy tears brought on by a thoughtful husband-to-be, seemed perfectly acceptable to all who watched.

(and phoned their husbands to take note of it!)

Then there was this…. this look when he saw her… the look that I live for!

Good job Dan!

After the “I do’s” the party was officially started!

17 1024x512 Nash Wedding

There was dancing, and a few toasts to kick off the night… not to pick favorites, but one was a rap soo…. well i’m picking favorites!

I was so glad to have the ok ahead of time to snatch these two off the dance floor to capture them alone outside before the sun went down!

18 1024x512 Nash Wedding

Dan & Jenna, your Wedding Day was all that Jenna Pinned it to be!

Jokes aside, it really was beautiful, full of smiles and laughter, and a really great reflection of who you are together, and the love you have for each other.

Congratulations!

Mark and Ashley’s Wedding Day was beautiful.

Spring decided to be be kind and fill the sky with warmth and abundant sunshine to celebrate the day. The Jones River Trade went through it’s usual transformation, this time looking so beautifully shabby chic, with burlap, a little sparkle, and flowers galore.

Mark and Ashley both had their fair share of nerves, but you could practically see it all melt away as they met eyes down the aisle. Vows were exchanged outside in front of a beautifully decorated mantle, while tearful, happy mamas dabbed at their eyes. Love was truly in the air, and it was beautiful to capture.

Need I say it again?

It was truly a beautiful day, from beginning to end.

June 6, 2014 Goldstein Wedding

Paul & Sherica couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous spring day to be married.

Definitely exceptional planning on their part!

Close friends, family, and interested passerby’s gathered to watch their Brewster Gardens ceremony.

Sherica was such a beautiful Bride, and Paul just beamed ear to ear as soon as he saw her. Once they locked eyes there was barely a moment they looked away from one another.

April 18, 2014 Bertoni Wedding

There is so much to say about this day, and so many images I want to share with you…

I’m going to try hard to reign it in, and not over share!

♥        ♥        ♥

Steve and Kelly are ADORABLE.

Like, for real.

Starting with the way they smirk and giggle at each other (okay, Kelly might do most of the giggling…), to the loving, knowing glances I witnessed throughout the day, and then right down to every little detail in their Wedding day that they fit to perfectly reflect who they are.

Who are they? They’re happy, funny,  and truly sincere people. They’re people who love, and are loved by so, so many that not just two, but four, sincere, tear-inducing speeches were given during their reception. Each one a testimony of very specific reasons and instances that these two people impact the lives around them. There was even a plea for babies – and fast! (My favorite, so I’ll join the bandwagon on that one!! Yayyy Babies!!) Close ties of family and friendship were evident throughout the day, and the joy of their marriage was truly felt through both the laughter and tears from all that attended.

February 25, 2014 Caramello Wedding

To say this Blog post is way overdue, is the understatement of the year!

Meeting deadlines is one of my pet peeves, but in November/December, with all the normal reasons for being busy, I also had wedding editing, album creations, and family Christmas sessions – my plate was FULL! So I chose to get the actual full Gallery done on time, and forgo the sneak peek – and these two were so awesome and patient about it!!

Everyone deserves their time to shine on the LmZ Blog though, so better late than never!

♥        ♥        ♥

Anthony and Allison’s Wedding day was beautiful. Really, whole day was absolutely beautiful.

There’s nothing like being on my end, watching all the little things that makes a person’s wedding day play out so perfectly and lovingly… if I wasn’t already a hopeless romantic, photographing weddings would have certainly fixed that for me! ♥

The proud, almost teary eyed looks from father to daughter, looks of admiration and encouragement from sister to sister, that look, from the groom to his bride, where his eyes are doing more smiling than his face could ever manage…..  The willingness of everyone around, to help in whatever way they can to ensure a perfect, stress free day, and an overall feeling of complete and total love, happiness and support….

That’s the best description I can think of for Anthony & Allison’s Wedding Day.

September 13, 2011 life’s little perks

So, I promised I’d blog about the weekend’s festivities, and here I am to do just that!

Let me first just back-track a little bit;

Wayyyyy back when, in the land of High School, I was fortunate enough to meet a fantastic friend!  (well, a few of them actually, but let’s just stick to this one for now!)  We were sort of inseparable, and it made high school a blast.

As we graduated and “real life” just began happening so quickly, we lost touch for a while.  A long while.  Then came Facebook.

Facebook was really insistent that I knew this person.  For a while, I ignored it. What does Facebook know?  It’s been so long, what would I say, “Hey, remember me?”  However, as I’m sure some of you might remember, Facebook, especially in it’s early days, was really pushy with it’s “suggestions”. It just wouldn’t let it go!  So, one day, I just wrote her a message.  We talked back and forth for a while, met for an awkward breakfast, and it’s all sort of history from there!  I’m so glad to have such a great friend back in my life and it’s been so much fun catching up on all the things that we missed sharing and creating tons of new ‘grown up’ memories!

I’m even more grateful during  times like this; the same year we began talking and hanging out again, her boyfriend proposed!  This past weekend was her bridal shower, and I was happy to help wherever I was needed, and catch every little detail for her!  She has a fantastic bridal party, so most of my work was just the capturing part. ;)

The Bride-to-be surrounded by that fantastic bridal party I mentioned!

Everyone worked together to make sure every detail was just so.  Each member of the bridal party made a themed basket, to be raffled off to guests.

My favorite part, however, was the theatrics from the bride while opening her gifts…

(& notice she wasn’t so dainty with that ribbon untying….  if wives tales became truths she’d be the next hit show!  Nicole & Ben plus…. 30ish??  Yikes!)

A fun time was had by all, and I just cannot wait (even more, now!) until their big day!

Soon we’ll be seeing these two on the blog again, as the new Mr & Mrs!

Until then…
