Vinny and Tori’s wedding last Saturday was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever shot. The cherry blossoms are so gorgeous this year, even though a lot of the other greenery right now isn’t! The bride and groom found me through mutual friends, and we instantly clicked at their engagement session. I am so glad they found me to shoot their wedding!
These two are easily one of the coolest couples I’ve ever worked with. Vinny and Tori started dating in 10th grade, and met through mutual friends. When they had their first date, they couldn’t drive yet, so Vinnys mom drove them to a Chinese Restaurant! Seriously, how sweet is this? Fast forward to Vinnys Graduation, they went on a walk through the oak grove (Where they had their engagement session done) through the pouring rain. Tori was a tad annoyed walking in the rain, until he got down on one knee to pop the question. Vinny and Tori are so down to earth, so in love, and so caring about everyone who surrounds them. Their love is so apparent in all of their photos!
They completely lucked out for weather on their wedding day! In between snow, freezing rain, and a couple of HOT days these past weeks, they had a perfect 60 some degree day! Vinny and Tori opted for a first look, and they were so happy they did. After their sweet exchange together, we captured some amazing portraits before the ceremony. We had a perfect cloud cover to soften the sun just a little bit. Their outdoor ceremony was just beautiful with a light breeze, as they said their vows, and exchanged rings. We headed in to the reception, and everyone danced the night away. Mixmaster Mike always knows how to show everyone a good time! At the end of the evening, they had an amazing sparkler send off. It was the perfect way to end the evening!
Vinny and Tori, it was truly an honor to shoot your wedding. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I just love you guys! Enjoy the rest of your honeymoon, and the rest of your lives together!
