Maddie and Mike's wedding truly felt like the event of the Summer. Less than a month after Covid restrictions were lifted, their special day was also the first time many family members and friends were able to reconnect. The energy and excitement was so refreshing to see. After this weekend, all I could think was - big weddings are back to stay!
Maddie had such an adventurous vision, which was so fun for my team to execute. There were pops of color, statement pieces, interactive elements, and personal touches at every corner. I couldn't have done it alone, and I was grateful to work alongside a spectacular group of vendors to make this stunning day come to life.
One of my favorite moments of the day was the "room reveal" - where she saw the complete ballroom setup for the first time. Seeing a bride's reaction is such a powerful moment that makes all the planning and effort worth it, plus more. :) Take a look at some of my favorite shots from this day!
