Ivanna and CJ are getting married at Stonebridge this coming November and it’s such a gorgeous property they decided to do their engagement session there as well! I mean, literally so many beautiful spots, we’ve photographed lots of weddings and events over the years there and there’s endless prettiness there. As you can see we had a blast just hanging out and having fun. Their outfit choices and colors were totally on point and looked amazing!! So fun working with you guys!!
There is always so much excitement and a little bit of nerves as we photograph the wedding party getting ready. Laurie's bridesmaids and maid of honor, her sister, were just the sweetest as they helped her get ready. Her something old was her mom's beautiful pearl ring and she looked gorgeous in that lace gown. The guys were eating chicken from Publix, just chillin when we got there:-) Andrew gave them each a bottle of Johnny Walker, and their sky blue ties. Andrew, his brother Donny, and their dad all had matching shoes. There were a few tears as he read the card and opened the gift Laurie got him, hockey skates! Their little niece and nephew were the cutest ring bearer and flower girl they had to get some photos with Uncle Andrew. We setup their first look at Stonebridge at the Lange Farm, and Andrew was SO ready to see his bride. I love how the nerves dissipate and those sweet few moments just the 2 of them are some of the best. Their ceremony was decorated with lanterns and greenery under the big oak tree. There was a special greenery wreath on one of the chairs in memory of their loved ones who couldn't be there in person. There was string quartet playing as they walked down the aisle. Sometimes people thing that first look before the ceremony takes away from that moment the groom sees the bride walking down the aisle, but it really doesn't I think it lets them soak in that moment even more because the nerves are gone. It was a gorgeous evening for their guests to enjoy cocktail hour and little mini tomato soup and grilled cheese on the patio. The light and dark blues with lots of greenery, lanterns, and blush roses set the tone for their romatic reception. One of my favorite moments was the toast Andrew gave to Laurie. He said he knew she was the one from the moment he say her at their apartment building where they met (we did their engagement photos there:-). He fell immediately in love with her beauty and kindness. You could feel how much Laurie and Andrew love each other, and their families, and how much they are loved by all! Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Berecz!!!! xoxoxo
