Shawn & Kari ~ June 13, 2007

Shawn and Kari have been dreaming of their 'Hollywood Glamour' themed wedding since they became engaged. I had heard of their plans, and was very excited to be a part of their big day. Every detail was amazing, from their wedding wardrobe, to the decor of the Best Western, to the party detail was overlooked! It was a great time, and for once, yours truly hung up her camera strap after the job was done and spent the rest of the evening enjoying the wedding as a guest. I haven't had so much fun in a very long time, and it was a true pleasure for us to spend the night with the bride and groom and their families. We were there until the very end, and were there to see the bride and groom being rolled out on the luggage trolley! It was a bit humbling to be back in the hall for a wedding the next evening, and to be asked by the Best Western staff if I 'had fun' the night before! Awkward! LOL! Thanks so much for allowing us to share in your day, Kari and Shawn! It was fantastic!

Crystal and Shane ~ Lucky 7's Wedding!

This was THE biggest wedding date requested for this year, hands down! I had one booking fall through unexpectedly, and lucky for me, Crystal just happened to see this post on my blog. Within a matter of days, the date was rebooked, and I was thrilled!

It truly was a lucky day and the weather was perfect. Crystal and Shane were married outside at Victoria park near the beach. All of their photos were taken before the ceremony at Trinity College School, which was a lovely setting to shoot in. The wedding party was fantastic....a ton of fun to work with, and the littlest flower girl, Lucia, was a DREAM to photograph. She kept her energy up all day and night and was still going strong when I was leaving for the night!

Of course, where does a couple who marry on 7/7/7 go for their honeymoon? You guessed it! Viva Las Vegas!!!! Hope you guys won big! Congratulations! :)
