Jake + Elena

Jake and Elena, you melt our hearts. It was such a pleasure for Chantel and I to photograph your amazing wedding at St Vincent. The love between your families was undeniable... and after losing my mom recently, Elena, I was so drawn to your sweet connection to your mother. I hope you cherish these images as a testament to all the love that surrounds you both.

Loved this beautiful wedding and all its details that I assisted Allyson with.  I loved the pale pinks with creams, the colors added an elegant softness to everything.  The live band they had, Mustache Harbor, was AMAZING!!
