Christina and Ryan…married Milestone on the River

I have known Christina since I was 13. We went to school together before that, but really became friends when we got stuck in summer school hiding out back of the Vo-tech eating swiss cake rolls. Some silly moments, you never forget. Even as the years pass and life happens, we have always manage to pick up where we left off like no time has ever passed.
2 years ago, she told me about this guy she met and knew it was definitely going somewhere. It was good to see her this happy.
Ryan is so amazing and with his 2 girls and Christina and her daughter, they make such a perfect little family.
I am so thankful for our friendship and that she put her trust in me to photograph her wedding. (she didn’t really have choice…)
Love you Nutz!

Jen and Brandon…married Hollywood Casino

One of my dearest and best friends got married a few weeks ago. We have been each others constant for so long. So, when it was her turn to get married, I wanted to do everything I could to make it perfect.
I was the first of the friends to get married and there was no Pinterest or any type of planning websites to get inspiration from. BUT now, after being in the wedding industry for over 15 years, I picked up a thing or two…. Jen put her full trust in me to help create her perfect reception. That is true friendship.
I put the trust in my industry friends to pull it off. They did not disappoint!
I am not going to get super mushy and tell you how happy I am that Jen and Brandon are finally married…. We don’t do mushy.
I love you both and thank you so much for your trust and friendship!

A brides shoes, a chance to be unique

I am a shoe girl. You can say that I am obsessed with shoes! If I am having a day where I feel gross and fat, but still feel like shopping, I know that I can buy a pair of shoes and THEY will still fit. They make me feel better.
When I get to weddings, one of the first things I look for is the shoes. This year, my brides, most knowing my shoe obsession were thrilled to show me their fabulous finds and their way to have that little extra pop!

Remember, your don’t have to have the traditional white shoe to match your dress. Have a little fun with it or go crazy!
