In many different cultures rain on your wedding day means good luck. It marks a new beginning and for my couple Maria and Rob it did just that. Their wedding was the start of something beautiful for them as a couple. Not only did I see them both genuine embraced it but they went with the flow. Honestly, we couldn’t of planned for things better and the sky even parted for a double rainbow right before the ceremony! It was like someone very special was watching over these two and showering them with love.

      I couldn’t get over how beautiful Maria’s custom designed wedding dress by Anomalie was or just how stunning the florals by Steve’s Flower Market looked. Surrounded by their closest friends and family these are just a few sneak peeks from their day. I’m so happy I had the opportunity to be apart of such an unforgettable day in Maria and Rob’s life. I’m sending them both all my love and hope they will cherish these for years to come!!!
