Waterview Wedding | Bethany & Joe

They sat on the beach, toes in the sand and champagne in hand. They gazed out at the horizon, watching the sunset paint the tops of the waves with a palette of oranges, pinks, and yellows. Bethany and Joe just spent their first day in the beautiful Grand Cayman. It was such a beautiful place and one Joe said was the exact setting he was looking for before getting down on bended knee in front of Bethany. Actually, he was on bended kneeS to be exact. And there on both knees he asked Bethany to marry him. With the biggest smile on her face and tears filling her eyes, Bethany said YES!  
 
Right along the water is where Bethany and Joe tied the knot in front of their love ones in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. The aisle was strewn with petals matching that sunset in Grand Cayman and their happiness was unmeasurable. It was a celebration that all those who were part of won't soon forget! 
 
Bethany & Joe - Your wedding was so incredibly beautiful and we feel so fortunate to have been there. It was truly an honor. You are such a sweet couple and we couldn't be happier for you! Congrats again! :)










Bethany's something blue - a heart cut out from one of her dad's shirts stitched into the lining of her dress!




Their First Look was such an incredibly sweet moment...










Totally and completely beautiful Bethany!


One of my favorites!





























One of the most amazing moments of the evening was when Joe's dad sang along with the band...

...and the newlyweds danced and sang along. It was a magical end to an amazing day!

Inn At Longshore Wedding | Cathy & James

There is no one that can make Cathy laugh quite like James. And there is no one that makes James smile quite like Cathy. That's how you know that they have found their other half and the one that is truly their soulmate. Three years at James Madison, but wouldn't you know Cathy and James didn't meet until their senior year when James moved into the house next to Cathy. They became fast friends and over time this friendship eventually blossomed into something more. They fell head over heels for one another. 
 
Fast forward to the first Friday in March last year - a day that changed their lives forever. After a long week at work, Cathy was so excited when James surprised her with two dozen beautiful roses, reservations at one of their favorite restaurants, and a movie. They had an amazing dinner and when they got home, popped in the movie for a low key night just enjoying one another's company. As Cathy flipped through the channels on the TV, James asked her to help him in the kitchen with something. As she came around the corner into the kitchen Cathy was SHOCKED to find James on bended knee with ring in hand! This low key night turned into one of the most amazing and unforgettable one of their lives as James proposed to Cathy! 
 
And their wedding day was just as amazing. Their Inn At Longshore wedding looked like a beautiful painting, with warm sunlight streaming over the gardens and ducks swimming in the still water. The champagne flowed, the dancing went on well into the night, and their first day as husband and wife ended with sparkle! 
 
Cathy & James - From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your special day. You two have a happiness that is truly contagious. It was such an honor to capture all the sweet and beautiful moments of your wedding day!








Gahhhh! You are so beautiful Cathy!


















This cutie was trying to run away with the bride! :)








These two... I just adore them so.
















Loves how much he makes her laugh... This is pure happiness. :)






One of my favorites!

Amarantes Sea Cliff Wedding | Sara & Chris

Nothing was going to dampen their spirits, not even hurricane Arthur. There was rain, and lots of it. There was wind, and very strong gusts of it. But there was an excitement and a love that was stronger then both. Sara & Chris tied the knot and celebrated with their loved ones along the water in New Haven. They laughed as the raindrops danced around them and couldn't help but smile because they were husband and wife.  
 
And in a magical display, Mother Nature painted the most beautiful sunset, with colors that spilled over the water and filled the room. The beauty was only matched by the newlywed's happiness! 
 
Sara & Chris - We are so grateful to have you as friends and to have been a part of your amazing wedding day! You two are so kind and thoughtful, and that shows in all that you do. We are so happy for you and can't wait for a puppy play date with our fur babies! ? Congrats again!  
 
Here are a few of my favorites from their big day!
