Bonnie & Matt :: Boca Raton, FL Wedding!

I'm getting caught up with all of the work we did this season, woo hoo!! So, that brings me to Bonnie & Matt's April 17th wedding in Boca Raton, Florida. I've known Bonnie for a few years, as she is good friends with my sister in law. I was SO excited that she asked Matt and I to be her photographers!! I had not met her Matt until her wedding weekend, but he made a great first impression.
{He's a sweetheart, Bonnie! I'm so happy for you two.}
Enjoy your slideshow review of the day. :)

I think Bonnie and Matt's story is absolutely adorable! Here it is, as told by the bride in her own words:

"We met when we were little tweens at a friend's party. We had a mutual crush for a little while and then we had an off/on friendship over the years. Then about 5 years ago we became really good friends and then we realized we couldn't just be friends it would never work that way. So we dated for 3 1/2. We got engaged August 1, 2009 and we married April 17, 2010 :-). We kind of always knew we would end up together. He told his dad when he was 14 that he was going to marry me lol."
{Thank you, Bonnie! So cute.}

The ceremony was held at their place of worship and the reception was at Maggiano's in Boca Raton. All of the bridal party photos were taken at a nearby park.
Bonnie's hair and makeup were done by Leslie Bargas of Leslie's Hair Designs.
Her Allure Bridal Gown was from Bridal Couture of Boca Raton.
Necklace an earrings were from PowderBlueBijoux, an shop.
And the rings are from JR Dunn Jewelers. The engagement ring was a custom made by her husband!

Alicia & Shell's Wedding :: Seattle Wedding Photographer

Alicia & Shell's wedding took place on July 17 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Renton, Washington. It was a SUNNY day!!! I was sooo sunburnt by the time I made it home. Markings of a day well spent! The ceremony was held in an outside courtyard next to the reception ballroom. We were able to shoot all of the family/bridal party/bride and groom photos in different spots around the building, picking them out as we went along. I have to say, though, the highlight of my day was getting to steal the bride and groom away during the reception for a few romantic shots while the sunlight was golden and perfect. We found some tall grass to use as a setting and photographed them just relaxing, spending a few sweet moments together, newly married.

Congratulations, you guys! Thank you for letting us photograph your day.
