Another wedding is on the blog!!

When it came time to shoot Matt and Michelle's wedding, we were super pumped. Not only was there an amazing lineup of wedding pros, but this was one fantastic couple. We met with Matt and Michelle a few times during their planning process and each time we got to know them a little more - something that made the day that much easier for all of us. It was easy to see how much these two loved each other. :) 
Michelle had everything planned down to a perfect science, and I knew the day was going to flow smoothly. And it did!!

When we arrived at the hotel where Michelle was getting ready, we were greeted by the amazing talents of Flowers by Pesha. All I could say was WOW! The flowers were so beautiful!!!

At the church later in the day, we met up with our friends Dan and Jaime of Best Bytes Media. Come reception time at the Franklin Terrace Ballroom, DJ Mike Reilly of CT Productions was rocking it all night. It was a great day with a great crew of people.

So, let's get to it! I had a hard time narrowing down the photos for this blog - there were so many fun photos! So grab yourself a drink and get comfy!

We'll start off with some details. Here's a few shots of those beautiful Flowers by Pesha. :)

I could keep going with this blog, but I'll end with these two.... Both shots I love. In this next one, caught by my amazing husband Ed, Matt and Michelle had snuck off during the night for a private dance. They didn't even tell us, but yeah, we caught them. ;)
Such an awesome moment to capture. I really love the feel of this photo.
