The Cross Wedding

"I made this for you." Becca turned to see her oldest niece and flower girl hold up a large cardboard sign. On its cover, the girl had drawn a picture of Becca wearing a crown and veil in bright pink and yellow marker. Below it she had written, 'Happy Wedding'. Her niece quickly turned the drawing over to reveal her special message on the other side, 'Love you both'. As Becca beamed a tearful smile and hugged her niece close, all of the bridesmaids in the room let out a resounding awe! What a perfect way to begin a wedding day.
Becca's second visitor came bearing a box of Backgammon. Becca's grandmother told me that she had taught her granddaughter everything she knew about playing the game. Apparently, Becca was a star pupil as her grandmother kept commenting throughout their match that she had taught her a little too well. I love the moments we capture as the couple prepares for their wedding. This is the time where the anticipation begins to build. All of the details begin to come together to create their special moment in time.
It is a tradition for the groom's family to give these pens to the couple on the day of their wedding.
Their ceremony took place in the backyard of Becca's childhood home. The two pledged themselves to one another with the love and support of their friends and family.
Their parents provided sand for Becca and Brendan's sand-blending ceremony from as far away as South Africa. Jeremy and I had such a fun time photographing your wedding. We wish you two much love and happiness in your new life together. Oh, and may you always remain... forever young. That one's for you guys!

With Love From Michigan

Well we are heading back today after shooting Becca and Brendan's wedding. It was a very personal ceremony attended by their close family and friends. We are so privileged to have been a part of such an intimate and emotion-filled day. We will be posting their wedding highlights once we return to Maryland. But we couldn't resist sharing this one image.

Becca and Brendan's "Day Before" Shoot

Since we were here a few days before the wedding, we all decided to have a "day before" shoot. I love the images we got. Even in the strong heat of a Michigan summer, these two were awesome! Thanks for a rocking shoot! Just check these out!

Jeremy and I are totally looking forward to your wedding tomorrow! See you at 7am!

Becca and Brendan's Rehersal

We have been enjoying Becca and Brendan's wonderful pre-wedding festivities here for the last two days. Everyone has been enjoying the warm, sunny weather and of course, we've brought our cameras to document it all. Here are some highlights from yesterday's rehearsal.

Stay tuned for more!
