First of all, Merry Christmas!!! Ahhhh the day to celebrate with family and friends! It is the time to share traditions, love, & happiness. AND today, I am so excited to share with you the very special wedding of Matt and Demetria from 17 November 2012.
For the past year, I have watched this family grow in both numbers and love. It’s funny to think I met this amazing couple on the coldest day of the year while they were running a race and I was aimlessly snapping photos in the area. Jen Schnizter, a dear friend of the family, asked if I would be interested in photographing a proposal that was to happen in 15 minutes. The rest is history… I am not only honored to be Matt and Demetria’s photographer but on that cold day, I had no idea I would gain 2 friends and some seriously awesome memories! So with Jen, an event planner by day, the incredible parents, and this totally sweet couple; a spectacular event was produced. To start, the Bride and her Bridesmaids got ready in a suite just inside the Hotel John Marshall.
There was so much attention to detail – everything from personalized cuff links (made of their childhood photos) and custom handkerchief’s for the moms.
Meanwhile, the guys were down the road trying desperately to figure out how to fold the ‘perfect’ pocket square. Who knew those things came with instruction pamphlets…
Demetria… seriously…. gorgeous
So if you havent noticed, Demetria is pretty hilarious and cracks up constantly – even when going to see Matt for the first time on their wedding day. I just love how much you both love one another and how much fun you have together. SO sweet.After a couple moments – we ran outside to grab a few portraits.
Ok, so that little cutie batootie below- Yes, Miss Charlie, she was riding in style! And why not have a bag pipe processional? My only question was why didn’t I think of that?
MARRIED!So moving on… haha – get it? Ok, bad joke but whatever.
Ok, I normally dont post the intro shots but this series is just too funny!!!
Toasts!Just look at the way Matt looks at Demetria.
Big Thanks to Shandi Wallace for shooting with me all day and helping me with these next few shots!
Matt jumped up on stage and sang to Demetria! Incredible.
Be sure to check out the lady’s face in the background… I had that same look before realizing I had to sprint across the dance floor to capture this! Rock it out!!!
