|I had been looking forward to seeing this sweet (and stunning!) couple since I shot their engagement session, so when I pulled up to Marionna’s beautiful new family home for her getting ready portraits and saw all of the windows with the gorgeous natural light, I was in love! Every detail of her ensemble had been carefully thought out and I was SO EXCITED when she showed me an empty room with those windows and dark wood floors. It was the perfect getting ready location and she did so alongside her mom and three sisters. There were lots of smiles and laughs, but my favorite part was when Marionna gifted her mom a framed drawing of her wedding gown – such a thoughtful memento! After some portraits at home, it was time to head to the church to see her groom at the Shrine Chapel of Our Lady of Orchard Lake. Kyle looked so handsome as he met his bride at the front of the altar and you know I could have kept them in front of my camera for hours, both on the grounds of the church and for some quick portraits on the course of the Wabeek Country Club as we tried to beat the incoming rain. Inside, this reception was decked out with insanely gorgeous florals by Bellisario, a beautiful cake by Elegance in Sugar, a full coffee bar from The Cappuccino Man (complete with their initials on top!), an ice luge with their signature drinks and even a cigar roller. Write Impressions made the beautiful invitations and Loren of LDT EVENTS kept the day running smoothly. Fun does not begin to describe the evening for this wonderful couple. A huge congrats to the new Mr.+Mrs.!
