Yes. Yes. One hundred times Yes! (happy tears of course)
What is your absolute favorite part of wedding celebrations?
Well the cliché thing to say here is when the groom sees his bride for the first time. And yes, that is definitely one of my favorite moments. However, the most touching part of the wedding to me, is when they are saying their vows. It’s an important time for them of course, but that’s not why it is so special to me. When my clients are saying their vows, I am thinking about the vows I took on my wedding day in 2003. So it’s kind of like renewing my vows each weekend LOL:) I leave and go home to my husband after each wedding I shoot…feeling like we were just married all over again. I sure do love my man <3
Do you prefer your cake naked or dressed?
I see so many beautiful cakes each weekend! And I am LOVING the new trend of naked cakes!
