There is something about newborns that just bring a smile to everyone’s face. Their tiny fingers and toes and the look of wonder in their eyes is magical! Kaitlyn has two older brothers who already love to give her kisses. And doesn’t she have the cutest head of hair? What will she grow up to be, I wonder? Congratulations Brad and Tori – she is adorable!
Lace, a vintage car, The Phoenix and a fun couple – what more could you want in a wedding day? I remember the first time I met Michelle and her mother. I just knew that the wedding day was going to be incredible. Add in the fact that everyone involved is super nice like dad – he also drove the vintage car- and a fun bridal party – and it adds up to great moments! One of my favorite parts of the day had to be during the ceremony when the priest told the couple to kiss again! That was too funny. I also loved riding in the car with the couple to Spring Grove and back for a few photos. It was nice that they had time to enjoy being together and relax a bit before the reception. When we arrived at The Phoenix it was amazing to see the reception room transformed into a romantic ballroom. Michelle was blown away! Next the couple had a chance to enjoy the lively cocktail hour with the jazz band The Hot Magnolias. What a wonderful wedding! Michelle and Greg, I wish you two all the very best! I know you have been long distance for awhile and trust me you are going to love having your best friend with you all the time now! And to their friends and family – thanks for making our job so much fun! And thank you to their amazing wedding professionals. The day was truly perfection!

Please welcome our newest couple Michaela and Martin! I am very excited for their 2015 wedding. Their celebration will be at the beautiful St. Stephen Church with their reception next door at the Carnegie Center of Columbia Tusculum. I first met Martin at his brother’s wedding a few years ago. Now I can’t wait for their engagement session!
