Congratulations to Jess and Matt, who tied the knot in front of their friends and family on a beautiful day. We had an event filled morning while they were getting ready with their respective squads, and a little bit of an emotional one too. They had a smooth ceremony at St. John Bosco after their blind first look. First looks are growing in popularity, but this was my first experience with a blind first look, where the couple didn’t actually see each other. They simply wanted to be in each other’s presence to calm their nerves before heading into the church. They also wrote each other sweet love notes to read during this moment, which made it all the more special.
“Love you to the moon and back” is a phrase that clearly speaks volumes with Rachael and Zach. It’s evident in the way that each one of them looks at the other, or at their dog, Luna. Their wedding day doubled as their seven, yes SEVEN year anniversary of being together after meeting their first year of architecture school.
Boy does this wedding tug at my heart strings! Long story short, Nicole and I go way back to when we were teenagers. I was pleasantly surprised to hear she was getting married and so excited when she asked if I could photograph it! After going to several of her Italian family gatherings years ago, I knew this wedding was going to be pretty spectacular.
