Maria and John’s Wedding at The Fox Hollow

Maria and John’s Wedding at The Fox Hollow

    When you find your best friend, the one you want to spend the rest of your life with, the world changes colors. This kaleidoscope of love and experience and history paints the most beautiful picture – one that continues to spread as the years go on. As it is with fate, we almost always figure out that the one we’re meant to be with is usually the closest person in our lives, and once we see how stunning it is to be with them, the rest comes easily. Maria + John started out with casual conversation in English class, but as the years went on, it became apparent that they were meant to be with one another. Their beautiful summer wedding day at The Fox Hollow was the perfect expression of how much they truly care for each other and the important people in their respective lives. Their  celebration was absolutely incredible, and as they swayed on the dance floor surrounded by their closest friends and families, the room overflowed with a love that can only be described as explosive. Every toast, every smile, reminded us that wedding days aren’t just about the glitz and the glamour, but about the beginning of a beautiful life together – and these two couldn’t be luckier to share in that together. Maria + John, thank you so much for letting us share in one of the biggest (and best!) day of your lives. We couldn’t imagine a better way to spend a hazy July evening. We wish you so much love, light, and happiness in the years to come, and...
Elizabeth and Brian’s Wedding at Bridgeview

Elizabeth and Brian’s Wedding at Bridgeview

  Choices are a huge part of who we are and how we find ourselves. Which road we walk down, what decisions we come to, and who we take that first date with with are all some of the life-changing choices that shape who we become in the future. Without our ability to make these choices, we might never find the people we were meant to spend the rest of our live with, and without that love, life can feel like something is missing. Six months into their relationship, after meeting at a fire department racing tournament, Elizabeth knew that Brian was the one. Sometimes all it takes is a shared sentiment or a sweet joke to realize that you’re look at the person you’ll spend the rest of your life with! After getting engaged on a Florida beach underneath a fiery sunset, it was inevitable that their wedding day would revolve around the sweet moments that transpire when you dedicate your heart to someone. These two celebrated their everlasting love in the most fantastic way, with stunning golden hour moments, a perfect first dance, and the sweetest vows ever. Thank you so much for inviting us into your lives and for allowing us to witness such an incredible moment for you two! We loved getting to see how much you love your family, friends, and most of all, each other. Here’s to a lot of light, a ton of happiness, and the neatest house you’ll ever see! Congratulations, Elizabeth and Brian! Photography | Anthony Ziccardi Studios DJ | Barattini...

Nicole and Hector’s Wedding at Larkfield

  True love – that gorgeous feeling that knocks you off your feet and slowly plays the soundtrack to your life every time you kiss – is everything. It makes your heart skip beats, your world views expand, and your memories become precious slices of time – meant to be held on to forever. Finding the person that you can connect with through every high and low, every loss and every victory, is no easy feat – but when fate finally brings you together, the results are electrifying, sending sparks through your fingertips and into the universe. From the beginning, Nicole and Hector knew they had found their soulmate. Every sign they passed pointed them towards a beautiful forever, and every moment they spent together felt fuller and brighter – different than any love they’d ever felt before. Their smiles were contagious, and each time they looked at each other, they burst into a fit of laughs, truly solidifying how perfectly they fit together. Nicole and Hector – we wish you a million more Hollywood smiles and love! We were so honored to capture the beginning of your latest adventure at Larkfield, and we can’t wait to see all the beautiful memories you two create as husband and wife. Congratulations!
