I met Debbie and Andy at Debbie’s brother’s wedding in April, which still is one of my favorite weddings. I fell in love with this family from the start. Almost immediately, I gained a ton of Facebook friends from just their family and friends alone. So when I learned that Andy finally popped the question, I was ecstatic and secretly crossing my fingers that they pick me again :)

When we shot their epic engagement session, I just knew I’d be shooting the cutest couple ever!

Bow tie how-to’s? Check YouTube :)

Debbie’s niece and flower girl Aniya didn’t leave her side.

The first look!

I adore these ladies!

I love how the boys were in their suspenders!

The Portofino Hotel’s lobby was insanely gorgeous. I love the pattern on the wall!

And yes, I love all the beautiful furniture that came with it.

My favorite shot, maybe ever. Debbie is always mistaken to be a model, even when we were shooting their engagement session. Andy, you are one lucky guy! :)

Just minutes before the wedding ceremony started, one of the yacht owners offered his boat to us for a shoot! Wish we had more time to explore it!

Debbie’s mom is a talented florist! She also did the flowers at her son John and Christina’s wedding in April.

I adore these curtains!

Best expression from a bride, ever!

Little details make a huge difference.

Andy’s family does cakes! They’re the talent behind Tasteful Cakes. I think they did the best one yet.

There was no dancing at this wedding. I’m kinda grateful for that, or else this post would be twice as big ;)

Debbie and Andy, thank you soooo much for having me and Devi at your wedding!
