Heidi & Ian. Bridals

The love they share is simple. It’s the type of love where she cooks & he does the dishes. The kind of love where he starts a sentence & she finishes it. It’s the kind of love where they are best friends & also a perfect team. Their love is the kind of love that has grown over years of being together, years of depending on each other & years of being blissfully in love. Their love is simple, pure & still fabulous after being together for 10 years! If their past is any indication of what their future holds, it looks like there are many wonderful & happy days ahead for them.

I had a fantastic time meeting up with Heidi & Ian for their Bridals at the Palace of Fine Arts. The weather was totally perfect & we had a great time! Heidi & Ian are sincere people whose zest for life is contagious! I am so excited for the opportunity to document Heidi & Ian’s wedding in November. I know it is going to be gorgeous!

Ashley & Spencer. Engagements.

There are those dates. I’m sure we’ve all been them. They are the awkward dates, the dates we want to end right away, the dates that we just wish we could fast forward right through. I know that everyone has been on one of those dates.

But then there are dates. Dates where from the second it starts until the very last minute, everything is perfect. Dates where the conversation is effortless, laughter is plentiful & everything falls into place just as you imagined.

This is Ashley & Spencer’s story.

Spencer picked Ashley up for their date in the early evening & they had the perfect date. They had so much fun that they ended up spending the entire evening having the best date of their lives. Since that date, Ashley & Spencer have been inseprable. Linked at the hip. And totally in love.

I am so sad that I won’t be able to photograph their wedding but I know that they will be soooooo happy together! Thank you guys for the awesome session! I wish you all the happiness the world has to offer you! xoxo, marielle.

Sandra & Earl. Wedding.

The dark clouds rolled overhead, threatening rain. But inside the house where Earl & Sandra prepared for their wedding, a sense of calm permeated the air. As Sandra’s hair was being curled, her Peruvian friends gathered round & excitedly chatted about how beautiful Sandra looked. Earl’s father quietly helped him with the finishing touches on his tie. Guests took their seats. Everything fell into place & before you knew it, Sandra’s mother was walking the gorgeous bride down the aisle. And as Sandra & Earl took their vows, smiles waved across the faces of each & every guest. Earl & Sandra are a perfect fit, a fabulous couple & as gorgeous on the inside as they are on the outside.

I loved the details from this wedding. Everything from Sandra’s lavendar bouquet & handmade dress with freshwater pearl accents, right down to the mini BLT’s, cupcakes & food that Back of the House whipped up, everything was simply divine. And it didn’t hurt that Earl & Sandra picked the best songs as part of their wedding- Sandra walked down the aisle to Coldplay & their first dance was to Iron & Wine. Really, it doesn’t get any better than that!

Earl & Sandra, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your beautiful day! I loved being able to witness the special connection you have & I know your lives will be filled with adventure & fun! xoxo, marielle.

Leslie & Martin. Engagements.

The lights were dim and the disco ball slowly turned, illuminating the gym. Some teenagers danced with the awkward-ness that just comes with being a teenager, others just sat on the sidelines wishing they had the nerve to get up & dance. And as at every high school dance,  the music was bumpin (I’m guessing Baby Got Back & some Boyz II Men were played- it would not be a real high school dance if they weren’t & you know it!). Basically it was like every single high school dance everyone has ever been to…..with one exception.

THIS was the very dance where Leslie & Martin first laid eyes on each other. They became friends & then their friendship grew to a relationship. What began long ago on that very dance floor has evolved from puppy love into real, true, tangible love. On Valentines Day, Martin surprised Leslie with a knockout ring & a promise to be together forever. She of course said YES!

Thanks so much for the fun & fabulous session, you guys! I had a blast laughing with you guys & learning more about you both! I can’t wait for your wedding in September! xoxo, marielle.
