DONNA + CHRIS - Ritz-Carlton Wedding

This was the last wedding that I shot in 2012, and boy, was it a beauty! Go grab a hot beverage, you're going to want to spend some time drooling over this wedding...

Donna and Chris got married at the Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Chris and I are cousins, and I was so honored/thrilled/happy/PUMPED when Donna asked me to shoot their wedding. I love Chris and his family, but over the course of planning the wedding, I got the chance to know Donna and her family better, and they are just THE SWEETEST! Chris, you caught yourself such a caring, beautiful woman. I'm so, SO happy for y'all.

The day went flawlessly, thanks in huge part to Lori Kelly. Y'all, this lady knows what she is doing! The details at this wedding were jaw-dropping. Literally... I think I found my mouth open in amazement pretty much the entire day. I loved the navy blue suits that the groomsmen wore and the elegance of the bridesmaids' dresses. And Donna has killer style, so of course she looked STUNNING. I could go on and on and on (about the cake, the candy bar, the florals...).

Thanks again for having me, y'all! Now if only I was currently staring at this view... ; )

LOVED Donna's dress and shoes.



The family are HUGE Carolina fans. We had to!

What did I tell you?

This is my absolute favorite.

Get ready to be blown away...

My uncle on the left and my cousins on the right... so fun to photograph family. : )

I think I almost fainted when I saw their cake.

Gangham Style!
