Laura & Richard: swept away

I am finally posting this wedding that I have loved for so long…Richard & Laura were married back in February, and their wedding resonates with me as one of the most romantic & joyful weddings that I have witnessed. Every time I think of Laura, I am reminded of her unending grace, purity of heart and a gentleness that is evident in her smile. Richard’s love and admiration for her was strong and sweet, I swoon! If I were a bride again, I would want to be just like Laura…for me, she was the epitome of glowing bridal beauty.

Laura’s mother dressed her while her sister looked on, with tears in her eyes.

Laura & Richard chose to have a reveal prior to the wedding, right out on 5th avenue. The streets were busy but it seemed like time stood still for this moment. I know my heart stopped when I shot these images…and we were all crying tears of joy! I will never forget these moments, especially when Richard wiped Laura’s eyes for her.

February is such an awesome month for weddings…I love seeing the colorful bougainvillea blooming in the background of this image:

Laura & Richard had sunglasses available for their guests due to the setting sun on the beach…we decided to have a little fun with them.

Then we were off to the beach, where Laura’s Dad walked her down the aisle.

The ceremony ended in perfect time for some sunset portraits. This image of Laura is one of my all time favorites:

And this group shot has so much fabulous attitude that I still get goosebumps when I see it!


Laura & Richard!!! Brandon saved this shell for you…it’s still in my desk drawer, but it will be delivered with your album.

Back to the Inn of Fifth for a cocktail hour on the terrace, and a rooftop reception:

First dance…so much romance.

Laura told me this chocolate cake would blow my mind and she was right. Best thing I have ever tasted. EVER! And I am a foodie!

Congratulations to you both, Laura & Richard. We wish you a lifetime of marital bliss and still think of your day as truly special and unique…your wedding will always be close to my heart!
