Wedding at The M Resort

Rebecca & Andrew

May 20, 2012

You didn't really think I would hold back the best photos from Rebecca & Andrew's Shabby Chic meets Bombshell Glamour wedding day, did you?  Of course not!  Now, I am not a professional wedding photographer ~ Far from it in fact!  But I love to snap wedding photos throughout the day because after a year or more of planning, I want to preserve the memories of the day through my eyes.

Details like flowers and wine boxes, lighting and layout are monumentally important to the day, but the most important element of any way ~ and the ultimate luxury item ~ is LOVE!

Looking back of the year of plotting and planning, what stands out to me the most aren't the details (gorgeous as they were!) but it's the little moments got to witness from my behind the scenes vantage point as wedding planner.

Here are a few of my favorites...Enjoy!

Kids are known to have mini-meltdowns at weddings. Doesn’t change the cute factor, though!

I watched the first dance from a distance, and still was brought to tears. So much emotion!
