I seriously have a crush on these two. I think I mentioned it before? These two met at work, where Alex was the hot intern and Mark worked as a web developer. Mark caught her eye and suddenly all her technology failed. She needed his help fixing her laptop, printer, even her USB keys and asked for his help. As Alex puts it, “I got mine in the end.”
She knew it was coming because he’d asked her input on the engagement ring he was designing, but it wasn’t ready yet before they left for a trip to Cuba. They were in Vinales, a rural part of Cuba. Where they just spent an afternoon drinking Cuban beers and watching street traffic from rocking chairs on a porch. It was almost sunset, Mark plucked a flower and spent half an hour “creepily” looking at Alex. She later found out he was trying to fashion it into a ring. In the end, as he proposed, he tied a piece of grass around Alex’s finger and it couldn’t have been a better ring.
Their first look absolutely melted my heart.
LOVE these two.
p.s. you also need to check out Mark’s interactive children’s book. CHOOSE your own adventure + interactive = freakin’ AWESOME.
Carlissa and I first crossed path’s at her friend’s wedding (Brian + Kate!). Little did I know, that less than a year later we would be seeing each other again for her own wedding taking place at Lookout Point Country Club.
A gorgeous day, filled with some equally gorgeous people, loads of laughter, and a ton of love.
These two met at a housewarming party, which led themselves to a bet. A bet as to where a certain beer that they both loved was brewed. Sara lost that bet and before she could pay her dues (on buying Dan a drink) they went off on their separate ways. Of course Dan couldn’t let that slide and tracked her down on Facebook. He asked her out and even paid for the drinks which of course now leads us to their amazing day at Trillium Trails.
Amazing little DIY details, soft pastels, Persian/Iranian infused details, classic car, and my fave – an outdoor ceremony with a beautiful backdrop. This one is image heavy!
I absolutely love personalized emails. Right away I get a feeling for my couples and I knew when I got Elizabeth + Ryan’s email inquiry I wanted to just shove them in my pocket and take them around with me everywhere.
They met over a mutual love of TFC. U-Sector was their gang. And Ryan proposed just after walking home from the same restaurant where they had their first date. Just as Ryan was popping the question, a homeless person was crossing the street to ask them for some spare change. The man got really excited because he realized he was witnessing a proposal, begged Elizabeth to say yes and then asked for $3, which of course they obliged.
Their amazing, detail filled wedding was held at the historic Enoch Turner Schoolhouse.
There was a little bump in the day when Elizabeth realized she forgot to order bridesmaids bouquets as well! She just happened to have floral tape… and luckily a local grocery store also had baby’s breath!
I usually don’t post family formals, but so glad I took advantage of their vintage E+R marquee letters!
This may be my FAVE favor EVER. It’s their kitties! (Who made an appearance during their engagement session as well!)
There maaaaay have been a TFC game going on the day of the wedding. (AND yes, they won! And may have tweeted their congratz!!)
No joke, here’s the tweet(s):
Oh and then firefighters may have made an appearance too.
I think I need to do this at EVERY wedding. Steal the parents away and photograph them for a couple minutes!
Noooo… thank YOU Elizabeth + Ryan for such an amazing day!!
When I first meet my couples, I joke around with them and tell them that I will be doing a “Psych 101″ questionnaire. Well it’s sorta true. It just helps me get to know them better as a couple! One of those questions is: When you can do anything you want to do – what do you do?
So when Sara + Dan said: spending time outdoors, at their family’s cottage and out on the boat. And that was something they were hoping to do for their engagement session, I was like: Uhm. YES?! They read my mind.
I’m always up for a little adventure and we did just that. Wandered around their cottage neighborhood, played on their boat and went on a little hike for a picnic.
I seriously adore my couples though. You know it’s love when I step on a rusty nail during their session and Sara plays nurse on my stinky foot. (THANKS LOVELY!! xoxo)
