South Beach Wedding | Laurie + Brett

Laurie and Brett are about as rad as it gets.  They got engaged at Coachella.  They got married in South Beach.  They went to South Africa on their honeymoon where Brett had a jam session with a local band.  Rad, right?  If that wasn't enough I also got to work with one of my favorite planners, Kasey D Weddings and my friend Drew W flew down from Denver to shoot with me.  Drew is an awesome photographer and some of the shots below are his.

National Hotel Wedding | Lina + Tim | South Beach

Lina and Tim's destination wedding at the National Hotel in South Beach was such an emotional day.  I'm usually borderline at every wedding, but at this one I cried twice.  Lina and Tim would tell you that they're not very affectionate in public, but I tend to disagree.   After seeing the images, I think you will too.  It's always such a privilege to document one of the happiest days of someone's life.  I feel blessed every week to do what I do. undefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined undefinedundefined

National Hotel Wedding | Lissette + Eric | South Beach

Lissette and Eric are both truly beautiful people inside and out and it was an absolute honor to document their destination wedding at the fabulous National Hotel in South Beach.   Lissette wore a stunning Claire Pettibone dress that was absolutely perfect for her.  Plus if you remember L + E from their engagement session in NYC, they met while L was an ADA for the Special Victims Unit and Eric is a cop.  If you know me, you know how much I love Law & Order: SVU.   It was an epic day.
