Romantic Storytelling, Fine Art Wedding Photographer

The one thing that stands out most about this wedding is the absolute love that Demetrius and Lauretta share with their son, Damian.

If one image could speak a thousand words, then their wedding images are speaking hundreds of thousands of words.

The day begin at the Fairfield Inn where the girls got ready and had some fun in their stunning, floral robes.  Laughter and joy filled the atmosphere as they prepared for one of the best days ever.  Later at the church, Lauretta’s mom her future mother in law helped get her in her gown.  It was so      beautiful to see a relationship so close between the mothers and Lauretta.  You could tell that they were meant to be a family.

Demetrius and his groomsmen were tucked away from the bride as she prepared her first look with her father.  Such emotion came as her father pulled her in for a hug.  As her dad walked her down the aisle, a smile came onto Demetrius’ face and as beautiful as the ceremony was nothing could quite compare to the happy couple’s faces as they exited the church, hand in hand as husband and wife.  Their eyes sparkled with happiness as they drove away to their reception.

The reception was decorated with creams and greenery.  Succulents that matched her bouquet decorated the tables and the four tier cake. They cut the cake and shared it sweetly to one another before sharing a kiss behind the cake table.  During toasts, their sweet little boy raised his glass and smiled wide.  He was so excited to be participating while sitting on his daddy’s lap.

And no matter how perfect the day was or how beautiful Lauretta looked, the very last photo in this sneak peek captured the best way to describe this day.  Love-filled.
