What a perfect pair. We absolutely loved Meryl and Dave's wedding! The gorgeous neutrals, the packed dance floor, and if this bride isn't channeling Audrey Hepburn, right? We knew this was going to be an excellent wedding the second we met these two! They knew how to let go, relax, talk to their people, and let us do all the work. It was a wonderful start to what we know will be a wonderful life together. Congratulations, Meryl + Dave!

What a night. What a couple. We had so much fun with Vanessa and Rene! These two fantastic people finally said their vows in front of everyone they love after ten years of dating! Everything was absolutely perfect, despite the boiling heat and the cocktail hour thunderstorm. Ovation was the perfect venue for Pollen's flowy romantic flowers, and Real Kitchen provided an excellent meal. Then they salsa'd the night away! Excellent party, amazing couple, and a room full of love. Congratulations, you two! Check out Erin Hoyt's work, beautiful as always.
