Elise and Dennis. Married.
The ceremony and reception was at the Franklin Park Conservatory. There are beautiful butterflies everywhere. AWESOME! These little colorful boogers make everyone smile.
I LOVE the lighting here.
Dennis…you’re so handsome! Look, all of these guys think it’s so funny how handsome you are.
There’s just something about this that I love.
The way he looks at her…SO much love.
And she looks back at him the same way.
The wind picked up Elise’s veil at the exact moment of their first kiss. MEANT. TO. BE.
This bridal party was SO well behaved. I’m used to the rowdy ones. They followed directions and were very quick to get into “position”. Thanks guys..wanna be my bridal party role models?
Oh, oh, oh. Be still, my heart.
Love. Love. Love.
A slow dance with dad suddenly turned into a funny choreographed get down. Hilarious!
Some behind the scenes fun.
Light girl’s first wedding. Isn’t she cute?! She was so giddy and excited. Love it.

What was the most memorable part of your day?
Bride- When my two favorite men, my dad and my groom, hugged and cried
when he gave me away- tears of joy!
Groom- Watching my beautiful wife walk down the aisle.
What was your favorite detail?
Bride- The flowers. I loved them, they were beautiful, and am so
happy to say my wonderful aunt did it all!
Groom- The fact that nothing fell apart. We thought at least some
minor disaster/situation would pop up, but everything went so
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Bride- Nothing! Almost everything went the way we planned, and even
the little mistakes are something we can laugh about.
Any advice for future bride and grooms?
Bride- Don’t stress. It’s an amazing day if you just relax and enjoy it!
Groom- A year and a half long engagement is great – if you want to
stress about wedding planning details for a year and a half.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Bride- Puerto Vallarta. Too bad we didn’t know it was rainy season
Groom- Seattle … I mean, Puerto Vallarta. It rained EVERY day but
we still had a lot of fun.
