The one thing that struck me about Maya and Mark’s wedding is how happy they were…how happy everyone was. Truly is was a beautiful thing to see. Everyone smiling and having a great time all night. Maya looked absolutely stunning in her custom made gown.
Isn’t the ring holder just the coolest?
Some last minute adjustments before the ceremony.
I love the look on Mark’s face as he waits for his bride to come down the isle.

During the sign of peace, it was so beautiful to see the two Moms embrace and how happy they were.
Some of my favorites at the beach…LOVE the one below…Mark has the most beautiful blue eyes!
Mark was amused when I got under the veil for a different point of view…I adore this photo.
At the reception some yummy appetizers.
The first dace.
These kids were the cutest. The ring bearer was dancing with this adorable little girl all night, they were so cute. The little girl had a twin brother who was lost without her, so he ‘danced’ with them all night by standing directly behind his twin sister the entire time!!!
The desert was the best!! Three kinds of berries inside a chocolate shell. Drool.
“All you need is love…”
…and some friends 🙂
Maya is is much better writer, so asked her to tell me how she felt about her wedding day.
“It was the best day of my life. Everything went perfectly and I can’t thank you enough for being a part of it.
I always dreamed of getting married on the beach, when we started looking into the logistics of planning a beach wedding, it would have meant not being able to have as many guests. It was far more important to us to have all of our friends and family with us so we went the more traditional route. It turned out to be perfection and more of a reflection of us as a couple than a beach wedding would have been. I was thrilled that you were able to go to the beach with us to take pictures, it really gave us the best of both worlds.
Our wedding party was made up of friends from childhood and family. Mark has been friends with all of his groomsmen for over 30years and they came from all over the country to be here. I have known my bridesmaids throughout my life, and can’t believe that Sarah made the distance being 8.5 months pregnant.
I had my dress made by Elda De Larosa who was incredible. She also made my dress for the rehearsal dinner. She saved me from the sea of strapless dresses and made me feel beautiful. The flowers were done by Beth at Anna Held Flowers.
I was thrilled to have my 87 year old neighbor give the blessing/toast. So many people have written/commented on his participation.
My favorite moments of the night were when we played sweet Caroline for the Millers and the last song where everyone was in a circle around us and we all sang all you need is love. I felt like I was on a carousel and every time I looked around I saw someone I love… And they were SINGING! That moment felt like magic to me.. The whole day felt like magic.
I will never be able to thank you and Carol enough for making things run so smoothly. and for being willing to do whatever we asked. I look forward to seeing the photos!!”
