There seems to be some apprehension about rain on wedding days. I secretly look forward to it. Especially when we happen to be near a gorgeous beach, and there are lots of big umbrellas around. It makes the grass greener, it makes the light softer, and I don’t even mind wearing a shootsac cover on my head. Mike and Kerri didn’t seem to mind so much either. And I was grateful that I have awesome clients when they suggested we frolic in the wet sand in nice clothes on the beach. And I was also grateful to have Husbone hold an umbrella over my head.

Jane and Eugene (Eujane, as they are affectionately called by their loved ones) are the essence of this philosophy I have about what I do for a living. My philosophy is that my job is usually pretty easy by the way of making people look amazing in pictures, because love makes people that way. True, deep, forever kind of love lights people up, and I am hard pressed to find a better example than Jane and Eugene. I feel I’ve gotten to know them a bit, and it’s easy to see how beautiful, kind and generous they are as individuals, but together they are a force of joy to be reckoned with. I think it’s amazing that we live in a world where two such people can find each other. There was something that one of the groomsmen and one of the bridesmaids said that really touched me. May you love each other the least on your wedding day. For a day exploding with so much love, I can’t begin to think what these two people will do in the world, as one. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day. And for the club sandwich.
It’s just so easy to see how much Donna and David love each other.
Donna and David had a stylish wedding in New Jersey yesterday, and I finally got to work with the fabulous Wilson Fontaine and her husband, Steve, and the wonderful ladies of Details of I Do. They really put together a gorgeous day, and though the rain was close at hand, it was a beautiful, beautiful day.
Have fun in Croatia, guys!

I loved her Prada patent leather shoes – they were so not bridal shoes, yet perfect!
And patent leather Chucks for the guys!
Oysters are my favorite food!!! And these were REALLY GOOD!
Umm… yeah. My job really doesn’t get much easier than this. And to top it off, aside from fitting together like puzzle pieces without any encouragement from me, they are about the lovliest two people I have had the pleasure to meet. Eugene met Jane when he was about to take a job in San Diego. He lived in DC, she lived in NYC, and he was moving to California. But as the weeks went by, he realized that there was a bigger opportunity for him in NYC. Jane. So he turned down the job that his father had line up for him, but obviously it was the right choice. Knowing myself, what it’s like to leave the person you belong with to live 3000 miles away, and seeing how much he and Jane belong together, well. He made a good choice.
Thank you, for the (the best sicilian) pizza (in Brooklyn!), beer and sharing yourselves (on camera and off!). It was my favorite kind of engagement session. The kind that makes me goofy with excitement about weddings and all.
