Here is another set of familiar faces!
I photographed Samantha and Andrew’s engagement session at Bok Towers. This time, wedding preparations began at one of the Reunion Resort’s rentable mansion-sized homes. I was completely blown away by the dress Samantha picked for her special day! She chose a high-neck that transitioned downward into a ruffled mermaid skirt with a fanback that trailed beautifully as she walked down the aisle. The entirety of her dress was designed with lace in intricate floral patterns. Plus, she had on a pair of stunning, bedazzled Betsey Johnson heels to match! Her entire ensemble was a complete showstopper! A gorgeous girl in a gorgeous dress. She even helped Andrew put on his bowtie, which was an absolutely adorable and sweet moment, before he wore his dark navy blue tuxedo blazer.
The ceremony was held at the stunning Ballroom at Church Street. Samantha’s bouquet, although very heavy, was one of the prettiest I’ve seen all year. It’s so vibrant with color and life, much like the couple themselves! Samantha and Andrew read their handwritten vows in front their closest family and friends. The crowd was a rather small but intimate one. The couple’s blind Borzoi (Russian Wolfhound) puppy, Walter, was present during the ceremony, too!
Reception included a long table that fit all the attending guests. There was chatter and laughter all throughout. They had a cute idea of placing tangerines on each plate, its leaves acting as place cards, the names written in silver ink. The couple incorporated a travel theme to the little knickknacks around the venue, some of which added a folksy but cozy vibe. The decorations for the reception area were magnificently pieced together by Nicole Pepper at Nicole Squared Events.
Overall, this wedding was such a dream to photograph!
