I have a weird admission: as much as I adored shooting Randi + Marc's wedding, my favorite part of being their wedding photographer has been my back and forth emails with Randi. Please don't get me wrong, their wedding was absolutely amazing in every way possible; I mean how can you improve upon an intimate, lakeside wedding where the trees seemed to dance above them as they made their vows? But as soon as Randi contacted me, I knew I was the photographer for her. She was hilarious and honest about her concerns about photography upfront and just talked to me like I was a lifelong friend. Even now, after the wedding, she'll text me and send me emails and they always crack me up and brighten my day. I love my clients.
As for the vendor who stole the show that day, I have to say it was Southern Oaks. Randi + Marc's vision was for a romantic, spring wedding with lots of flowers and amazing hospitality. Their arbor was decorated so beautifully, it was hard to believe that that the flowers were real. Randi's bouquet was drop dead gorgeous as well. It was a little blustery (this spring has seriously been so windy!) but Southern Oaks did incredible making sure that all the linens and decor stayed in one place. Southbound Crescent Band kept the crowd dancing the whole night while guests took turns taking pontoons out onto the lake.
What an amazing day! Thank you Randi + Marc for trusting me to capture it!
