I had been looking forward to Tanza and John’s wedding all year. After photographing their engagement and family session, I felt like I had known them for years. These two are all about family, and they chose to have their small wedding at the wonderful Charlotte Trolley Museum in Southend. As usual, coordinator Jackie Fogartie did a beautiful job. We both agreed that their 30-person guest count was just the right size for the Museum’s intimate space, and everything about their wedding was a perfect reflection of them: super laid-back, lighthearted, and filled with love and laughter. My favorite part about their wedding was how kid-inspired their decor and activities were. Together, they now have seven kids (!), so it’s hard not to be influenced by them! The personal touches included place cards written in crayon, outdoor games and an ice cream truck for dessert. So original, and such a hit! Really happy to have had the honor of documenting their happiness together. Special shout out to my second photographer, Josh, who helped captured some beautiful moments with me throughout the day. 🙂
