Oh sweet, wonderful Annie and Troy. If ever there was cause for a gushing blog post, it would be these two really wonderful people! I loved every single thing about their wedding. From start to finish it was just awesome and I am so happy that Dustin and I got to be a part of it. We had so much fun all day! It was non-stop excitement and joy all day. I cried like a baby during their ceremony and was nearly trampled during the dancing at their reception and it was just absolutely perfect! Annie and Troy have A LOT of people who love them A LOT, and seeing and hearing all of that love throughout the day was overwhelming and wonderful. Seriously, we feel so blessed to have been a part of their day. We started things off at The Citizen for some getting ready goodness. How much do we love Annie’s shoes? SO MUCH! After getting ready we headed over to Land Park for some portraits at her parents home and then Vic’s Ice Cream. YUM!

My beloved Shannon from Flourish did the wedding flowers and holy moly I loved them! Great job, as always, Shannon! And can I just say Annie had THE BEST bridesmaids ever! They were all so much fun! It was a blast hanging out with them.

Of course whilst I was hanging with the ladies, Dustin was hanging out with the fellas. Troy LOVES music, so they hopped in the limo and headed over to R5 to rock some fun groomsmen portraits. (I still think ice cream is more fun then records… but that it’s probably just the 9 month pregnant lady talking.)

Then it was off to B’nai Isreal for some ceremony. Annie and Troy saw each other prior to the marriage ceremony for a first look and to sign their Ketubah. The look on Troy’s face when he saw Annie was priceless! It just made me adore Troy even more!

Then it was time to get these two married! One of my favorite things about Jewish weddings is that both parents walk the bride and groom down the aisle. It makes me happy.

After family portraits it was back to the Citizen to celebrate Annie and Troy and for some pictures of the entire wedding party and the bride and groom!

Once again Kate Miller of Kate Miller Events knocked this wedding out of the park! I swear if I could shoot every wedding she plans I would! Everything in the terrace room looked AMAZING! And hello purple artichokes in the centerpieces! Let’s be friends for life!

And then it was party time! Annie and Troy had a ROCKING reception with an ice cream bar instead of a cake (AWESOME!) and the live band Poprocks! Add into that my very first hora, and people… it was magic! All of my dreams came true! Annie and Troy you are dream makers!

And one more ring shot before I go…

julia and tom {25th anniversary party}

Filed under: Event Shoots, Weddings

Julia and Tom are just two of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. They celebrated thier 25th wedding anniversary this year and did so in style. They traveled to Hawaii to renew their vows and then came back home and had a big, beautiful party at The Citizen Hotel. Let me say here and now, it was THE best party I have EVER been to! I am so grateful Dustin and I got to be a part of this celebration!

Isn’t this cake STUNNING??

It was most definitely a night full of surprises. Tom and Julia’s oldest daughter, Ashleigh, had told her parents she wouldn’t be able to make the party but just because you tell them something like that doesn’t mean it’s actually true. Ashleigh decided to surprise her parents by dressing up as a waitress. They honestly didn’t recognize her for almost 30 seconds. It was fabulous!

Then the party really got started! It was wonderful to be with this group of people who have known and loved Julia and Tom for YEARS! And it’s obvious why they’re friends with this great group: THEY ALL KNOW HOW TO PARTY!

Another surprise during the night was just for Tom. Let’s say Tom is no fan of the Burger King King. So of course, the King HAD to make an appearance at the party!

Julia and Tom! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your celebration. We love you guys and hope you have 25 more years of happiness together. Check out the SLIDESHOW HERE or in the box below.
