I am not even sure where to start with Sunday’s wedding. My words are not eloquent enough to describe how I feel about Marina and Rich. Love doesn’t seem to be a strong enough word to describe these two. This day has to be one of the most perfect wedding days ever. Not because the weather was beautiful or the setting was amazing, but because these two are what love looks like to me.
Liesa and I shot their wedding since she came with me to NY to do Marina and Rich’s
engagement session. Right away, it was so comfortable like a group of old friends.
All the girls were in the Green room getting ready, but everything was very relaxed and Marina wanted to make sure everyone was fed, especially her Grandmother. This was a very diverse crowd since Marina’s family are all Russian. Granted, I didn’t know what was said most of the time, but I think I got it! Rich was in the house as well with the groomsmen, but he was playing Martha Stewart as one of the girls said, setting up all the last minute details. We did eventually get him getting ready.
Marina was breathtaking and so elegant which made photographing her so easy. I couldn’t take a bad shot if I tried!
This was the first time we had a ceremony at the new site at Cameron Estates. Wow! As if this day couldn’t get photographically better! I get goosebumps every time I look at the ceremony. ( I hope you do too!) There were tears and smile throughout.
Afterward, we grabbed a few family shots and then I was able to take just Rich and Marina around. They were up for anything again and left it all to me. I had to take a shot with the iphone again just to continue from the engagement session. Thanks for playing!
The reception was held in the main house and was very intimate. Only about 50 people. Toasts were given by their Fathers. Marina had to translate for hers. So cute!
After dinner, the first dance and cake, everyone headed out on the porch for more dancing. I had the chance to work with 2 of my favorite guys! Matthew from Occasions DJ’s and Joey from Big City Video. They are both incredible to work with!
In the end, Marina and Rich headed through the sea of sparklers and off to Aruba! You both are so wonderful and I wish you incredible love and joy!!! Have fun!
