good vibes only

 I don’t even know where to start with this post… I just had the MOST fun at this wedding, working with the absolute best couple, and I feel speechless! I guess I will start with how grateful I am that I got to be there to capture Steph and Kyle’s amazing wedding day, it really was such a special experience, that I will never forget.  I know they won’t! 🙂

Steph and Kyle have been together for a lonnnnng time.  In that time, they have traveled the world and made SOOO many amazing stories.  The speeches at their wedding were stocked full of  their hilarious shenanigans, and I could still listen to them talk about their adventures all day long.  They are free-spirited, caring people, who love eachother fiercely. They are exactly the kind of couple that I adore working with, each and every moment. After spending so much time with their friends and family, it is no wonder they are the wonderful people that they are, they are surrounded by so much love and wonderful people.

The wedding party – you guys were the best.  So easy going and so much fun to work with.  I had a blast with all of you!! Rondo, thank you for making me laugh with your hilarious facial expressions non stop all day and then also while editing!

I decided that destination weddings are the best, here is why:  Not only do you get to spend your wedding day with all of the people you love most in the world, but you get to spend the days leading up to and after your wedding all together as well!  SO awesome. No one has anywhere else to be but spending time together and having fun. What could be better than that?!

I need more Steph’s and Kyle’s in my life!  At least we are all playing on the same beach volleyball team this summer! 🙂

Enjoy these images from what was the most wonderful of days!!

And then there were THESE TWO.   So I could not help but stare and admire how sweet these two were together – dancing, hugging and just being extra cute.  So much so, that I went up to them and said “All I can say, is that I hope that I am still as madly in love as you two are when I am your age!”  Grandma giggled and told me, “Oh my dear, we just met yesterday!”  At that moment, I thought she was joking.  I thought there was no way that would be possible!!   Sure enough, the next day in the pool. I found out that they only met about 24 hours prior to the wedding.  True story!
