When Maria & Eric booked us as their wedding photographer, I was SO happy because that meant we got to come back to the Duportail House! We are in love with this venue!
Looking back at my notes from Maria & Eric's Wedding, their coordinator, DPNAK, (who I highly recommend btw!), listed their "wedding vibe" as classic, intimate, joyful, romantic, and light-hearted...
I could not have described their wedding better - it was EXACTLY that! I loved everything about it and we had so much fun :)
Maria is one classy lady! Check out these details...
LOVE these matching floral robes for the bridesmaids! <3
Poppin' the champagne!
PHEW! No one got hurt in the process, hahaha. Well done, Maria!
These ladies were hilarious...
Maria's first look with her Father...
I LOVE LACE SO MUCH I'm loving the new trend of different shades/styles of bridesmaids dresses...it looks so good! Awww, they all love her! <3 :)
Apparently these were DIY flower arrangements!! The gals used flowers from Seasons Garden Center...I was impressed!
Look at these cuties!! :)
The guys got ready a couple minutes away at the Embassy Suites by Hilton.
Bride's gift to Groom...
Here comes the shuttle of guys!
The man of the day!
Here comes the bride! :D
This was the first wedding that I have ever been to where part of the ceremony was in Russian. Very neat!
Their smiles were contagious!
These two kept trying to sneak the kiss in early...haha! Actually, they kept forgetting to wait for the russian translator to translate everything that was in english. So they had to listen to everything twice! :)
Wooooooo! Off they go! :)
What a good lookin' bridal party!
I had to post this next one because look at the little girl in the front..."make it stop make it stop!" lol I love how natural these two are with each other... Of course we had to get another full bridal party shot right in front of the beautiful Duportail House.
Some more of just the bride & groom...
I remember we did not have a whole lot of time for photos, but these two did AMAZING! Their wedding was on one of the 90 degree days in April, (this weather has been wacko this year), so it was HOT! But don't they look great?! They just had such wonderful attitudes and put up with my "okay, just ONE more shot" over and over again...haha
This is probably my favorite shot...I have always wanted to get a flowing veil shot, and FINALLY the bride wore a longer veil! Thank you, Maria! ;)
I was thrilled when I heard that they were going to be doing their introductions & first dance outside - the sunlight was perfect!
Now everyone headed inside for some dinner - which was super yummy! Great job Colonial Farms Catering!
They are so snuggly! :)
Cutting the cake! Father Daughter Dance and Mother & Son... Bouquet Toss
Steve Vazquez from Soundfactor Entertainment getting the party going! Dancing the night away!
Maria & Eric, I had a blast shooting your wedding & I wish you the best with your new life together!! <3
