This is one special wedding that I will never forget. It is one of those things that happen and you realize it’s from the man above!
On Wednesday, June 1 I get a call from one of my friends Renata, amazing make up artist, stating her bride that is getting married on Saturday, June 4 doesn’t have a wedding photographer. Her photographer had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances and couldn’t make it to the wedding. Two thoughts ran into my head immediately. My own experience of not having a wedding photographer on my wedding day and “oh shoot” I better cancel my birthday plans. This couple CANNOT get married without a photographer!
Heather and I spoke briefly on the phone. I can hear her nerves and it just broke my heart. I knew I had to at least meet and chat with her before the wedding day. Their are so many details that go on during a wedding that takes about a year to plan and we only had 3 days! With the help of Renata, we met in her studio while Heather was doing her hair and makeup trial. It worked out perfectly. We met, we laughed, we connected…she had a photographer for her wedding! But i’m not gonna lie, i was a bit nervous. I wanted to make sure I met all of heather and Phil’s expectations and with only 3 days of prepping it was nerve wrecking. But it turned out to be a match made in heaven!
Every single detail of their wedding, Heather planned all on her own. No wedding planner, no stylist. She knew what she wanted for her wedding day since she was a little girl. She even designed her own wedding gown and the beautiful flamingo pattern robes she and her bridesmaid wore. how amazing is that?!
Phil and Heather have been together for about seven years and were finally tying the knot. They wanted to do a first look and family portraits in Vizcaya and it turned out beautiful. Despite some afternoon showers, the day was perfect! they were blessed and married at St. jude Catholic church and had simple reception dinner at the edition miami beach.
I wish them a lifetime of happiness and love. I am so happy everything worked out and I was able to capture this special moment for them. as for my birthday….well it turned out amazing as well! Enjoy!
