It’s such an honor when another wedding professional trusts you and your work enough to document their own wedding. Out of all of the photographer’s that Steve has worked with throughout his many years of providing music wedding receptions, he asked me. Steve is a friend of mine who I met working with JD Entertainment and an outstanding DJ, I might add, and to say that I was honored is an understatement.
Steve and Marlaina met in the fall of 2008 at a wedding of course 🙂 and a few weeks ago their family became one. The weather was perfect, the day was perfect, and their wedding at Sycamore Hills couldn’t have been more perfect. It was simple and elegant, exactly what they wanted. But more importantly they knew that their marriage was truly about their union and family being brought together by God…
His son and “Best Buddy” Tristan along with his mom escorted Steve down the aisle
Their daughters Janessa and Alahna
And Marlaina looking perfectly stunning as she made her way down the aisle
And in this moment, Steve couldn’t agree more…
And at the end of the ceremony, Marlaina presented Steve with the rose!
then after this ceremony, this happened…
and my eyes started to mist over as this happened next…
Such a beautiful family!
Steve made this cake stand himself!
The mixture of purple coral was perfectly lovely
Their daughter Jenessa introduced her Mom and Dad
Steve’s speech was heartfelt and funny and included his whole family
My good friend John, owner of JD Entertainment was there pumping the music and Tom from Complete Video documented it along with me.
One last favorite from the day… Steve and Marlaina, thank you for allowing me the honor of documenting your wedding day!
