Emily + Ben

back to portfolio

Girl lives in New York, guy is traveling in the USA from Australia. Boy calls out to beautiful girl from across the street. An evening spent talking and the rest is history. A chance meeting that resulted in a forever love. 

 Working with a couple from across the world (by now girl moved down under to be with boy) can present its own set of challenges but honestly it is totally worth it when you are working with an amazing couple like Ben and Emily. I became connected with the couple after being hired by Emily's wonderful mother and sister and over the last year I have grown to simply love this family. I looked forward to this wedding all year long and it couldn't have turned out any better. 

 From the intimate and romantic wedding ceremony to the stunning reception, it was a perfect day. The day was made by a group of amazing vendors. My first experience (and certainly NOT my last, I love her) with photographer Amy Carroll Photography! Amy has never-ending energy and is a true master of her craft. She captured the beauty of this couple, inside and out. This wedding had some of the most memorable speeches from friends and family that had traveled from around the world to be there. The big moments were captured by the Leah Trib Productions, we can't wait to see the footage! Jason at New Age DJ kept guests dancing all night long and guests were transported safely by Elite Shuttle. Menu cards and other paper goods were designed by yours truly. 

 Emily and Ben, congratulations on your wedding! I wish you both all the happiness in the world and if I ever come to the land down under, I will know who to call ;)
