Welcome back! Thanks for being patient. I've never really been a diligent writer so I'm finding myself putting it off more and more and now I have so much to share I'm almost not sure where to start. So, how about I begin with my most recent wedding? Allison and Eric's...
Allison and Eric Irwin were married in an intimate ceremony on Smather's Beach in Key West on 4-11-12. A beautiful Wednesday, idyllic of the perfect weather we experience here in April. Blue skies, nice breezes, warm, clear water...it’s what the locals call "Chamber of Commerce" weather because THIS is the weather that everyone dreams of when they think of vacation in paradise. It couldn't have happened for a nicer couple either. These two are both absolute sweethearts!
After their ceremony we headed over to the Casa Marina Resort for a few photos in the warm sunset light before they shared an intimate dinner with their immediate family out on the pier there. They are planning a big reception for all of their friends and family when they return home to Kansas.
Initially, when I began putting this post together, I thought I might start by telling you my interpretation of their day, but, instead, I'm going to let the pictures tell you my side (since that's really my job, right?) and let Allison share their sweet love story in her own words. :)
"Eric was in the same class as my oldest brother, a few year older than me, and the first time we can remember meeting was when they were motocross racing together...years and years ago. We are from a very small town where everyone knows everyone else so, we had known each other for quite a while. We had been seeing each other off and on for the last few years but we both knew way back then that we loved each other. We started talking again and hung out June 4th of last year and have been pretty much inseparable since then. Eric is such an amazing man; it was easy to fall in love with him! We started talking about getting married and while on our way to a concert on August 19th we stopped at the mall and picked out our rings! Eric formally proposed to me on September 5th! We've been together (this time) for 10 months and were engaged for 7 months. We are so very happy and excited to be spending the rest of our lives together and can't wait to see what the rest of our years will bring."
Well, Allison and Eric, you guys are adorable together and its obvious to anyone around you that you two truly love and adore each other. I wish you a long and happy life together! Thank you for letting me share in your special day, it was truly an honor and a pleasure!
Allison and Eric knew they wanted a destination wedding but weren't initially sure where they wanted to have it. They talked about a few different locales but after speaking with some friends who live in Key Largo, doing some research and looking at photos from weddings here, they decided to have their wedding in Key West.
So, what do you think? Want to see more photos from their wedding? I've uploaded about a hundred of my favorites to the client gallery and Allison has graciously allowed me to keep it open so everyone can see!
