Our Dating Story (Her version)

It all began on a snowy evening back in January of 2010. We met through mutual friends at a local ski resort while enjoying a country music band and a few cocktails. What started off as a harmless conversation, talking about “business,” led to 10 months filled with thousands of text messages (technology has really put a damper on the romance of pursuing a significant other), a few late night phone conversations, the occasional happy hour BUT never an actual date. That all changed on Christmas of 2010. We spent the evening together playing cards, exchanging gifts, drinking wine, sharing stories and having what would be one of the best nights of both of our lives and the start of the next chapter in our love story. That “official” first date came three days later.

Long distance was a word that we knew all too well. From the time we met until the time we were engaged, we never lived within 2 hours of one another. Distance never seemed to keep us apart though. Our evenings were filled with Skype sessions and our weekends with trips to Philadelphia and State College…there was also the occasional weekday trip as well. Crazy kids, you just couldn’t keep us apart! That distance that we always seemed to complain of proved to make our relationship even stronger. Fast forward a year and a half later. Ashley had won a trip though work to Las Vegas.

The Proposal (His Version)

Getting ready for dinner that evening, I had the entire proposal planned out. After a great sushi dinner, we were going to walk down the strip to the Bellagio to watch the fountain show. I had the exact time of our show, 7:20 PM. All of the day’s commotion to this point had me worked up: getting a ring from Pennsylvania to Las Vegas through airport security without Ashley knowing was quite the task. Every ten minutes I checked my wallet to make sure the ring was still in place. I was a nervous wreck and Ashley kept asking, “Honey, is something wrong? Are you not having fun?”

We arrived at dinner around 5:30 at Sushi Roku, and I was constantly checking my watch; we couldn’t be late for the 7:20 show. Anyone who has the slightest clue about me knows that I absolutely love to eat. I picked at our meal and barely finished my drink. Ashley asked, “Honey, don’t you feel well? Is your dinner not good?” Again, I told her I was tired from the long day. We paid our bill and started our venture down the strip towards the Bellagio. The timing appeared to be just right; we would arrive a few minutes before the show to get the perfect spot.

As we arrived at the fountains, I looked for the perfect background to have our picture taken as I proposed. We were in place, and I spotted what appeared to be a tech savvy couple I would ask to take our picture. By this time I had the ring in my front pocket, checking every ten seconds to make sure it was in place. The show was set to begin, and I asked the couple to take our picture as the fountains started. After handing them the camera, I removed the ring from my pocket and walked over to Ashley. I went down on one knee and popped the question. Immediately Ashley placed her hands on her face and repeatedly asked, “Are you serious!? You’re kidding me! This can’t be real.” After asking her a second time I said, “Ashley, please don’t make me ask you again!” She finally said YES and I placed the ring on her finger. I came to my feet and we kissed, taking in the moment as the camera snapped away. This was the start to the best vacation and the rest of our lives together!

From the stunning flowers, to gorgeous mini wedding cake centerpieces to the fairy light outdoor reception it is a love-filled affair.

From the Photographer

I have memorized Corinthians 13:4-8, also known as “Love is Patient.” In fact, I have memorized many of the wedding prayers, poems, and sayings because of the number of weddings I’ve photographed. Never had a heard a more beautiful and meaningful reading than Kori and Filly’s wedding, when their ceremony was in Spanish. I minored in Spanish, and hearing the words to prayers and poems I’ve heard numerous times brought new meaning to the beautiful words. In many ways, Kori and Filly reflect the poem. They are patient and kind … and they know and understand the true meaning of family, friends, and most importantly, love.

Wedding highlights:

Rain clouds were overhead as Tanisha & Brandon began getting ready for their big day. Luckily, the sky cleared just in time for their touching first look – Brandon’s face was priceless as he first glimpsed his beautiful bride. Soon after guests arrived Tanisha was escorted by her father down the long aisle that extended from the front doors down into the yard. It was a beautiful moment to start to their wedding ceremony.

Tanisha and Brandon shared vows and a few tears before heading off with their guests to celebrate! Pen Ryn Mansion’s ballroom was an exquisite venue for the couple’s reception. The Mansion had so much character and was beautifully decorated with details Brandon & Tanisha planned that certainly added to the feel of their day.

Guests were out of their seats on the dance floor or enjoying having their likeness created by the caricaturist. When the reception ended guests sent the newlyweds on their way with a sparkler send off!

From the photographer

Pamela & Conway got married at the beautiful Ocean Hotel & Spa in Half Moon Bay. For those that want to getaway from all the hustle and bustle around the San Francisco Bay Area, Half Moon Bay is like a mini destination get-away less than an hour away. 

Their wedding day started with a Chinese Tea Ceremony followed by the wedding ceremony on the lawn overlooking the beach. After the ceremony, we headed down to the beach for some photos before returning to the reception. And what a reception it was. How often does the bride’s entire family break out into a completely choreographed song and dance during the father/daughter dance. The entire room was cheering! It was such a fun night and a wonderful celebration and we were honored to witness and capture it.

Wedding Reception Bald Head Island 

 

From the photographer:

Michelle and Preston were wed at the Village Chapel of Bald Head Island and held their reception at Shoal’s Club, Bald Head Island NC. It’s a destination off the coast of Southport, NC a sleepy town at the mouth of The Cape Fear River.
You must take a boat to get to the island and there are no cars, only golf carts for transportation. It’s off the beaten path and provides folks with a comforting sense of ‘leaving it all behind’. Michelle’s family owns a home on the island, and it was her number one choice in places for she and Preston to host their guests for their lovely fall wedding on the island. It was a wonderful celebration to be a part of.
