Where TO begin when one speaks about the true love of Jenny and Meliss ! Darling, fun, very happy ladies, so full of life and love for each other and their new family unit. When they came to meet me at my studio they did not have a venue so we booked them at OUR VENUE ( O.K not really mine, but I rent the upstairs space ) Their wedding at The Antique Mansion Privee was so very heartfelt. Rick at Visions Entertainment rocked their reception like a hurricane. They did in fact ‘jump around’ and as you can see everyone had a blast. Please note Jenny’s Sparkle Bridal gown ! I love all things Sparkly and Sparkle Bridal is at the top of my list as they cater to the gals with curves. And a shout out to Simple Country Weddings for adding their beautiful touches to the mix. Enjoy this one in a million love story !
Aww my TREASURED ‘Awesome ‘ family is on the Bicycle built for Two blog today. Man alive have we gotten a lot of press from this wedding. Features in a few magazines and blogs, the public appears to not be able to get enough of this wedding. No one can blame the people as these two beautiful moms are THE BEST. Oh how we LOVED this wedding. The energy in the air was electric with love and joy. These two were meant to be together and everyone could feel the magic. They are a blended family and all about their kids. Fun fact, Kelly is a surrogate mother that not only carried her own 3 children, but carried 5 additional babies for other families. And shhh, keep it a secret but she carried Neil Patrick Harris’s TWINS ! One has to brag about Doogie when they can in life. My awesome friends Bryan from Music and More did the best job ever and my gal Jenifer from I make Beautiful did in fact make beautiful, and all at one of my favorite venues Scotts Seafood and the Westin. Please enjoy all of the joy.
Ahhhh Kelly and Erin they did know that it was much more than a hunch. Man alive are these ladies in LOVE. Their love for each other fills up the entire room with joy.They are quite possibly one of the happiest couples I have ever had the good fortune to photograph. And now that they are afforded equal rights they will be blending their families this coming April at Scott’s Seafood / The Westin. I for one can not wait !
Fun Fact, Erin posted the first photo below on a Facebook page with the title ‘ sometimes moms marry moms…get over it’ and it got almost 8,000 likes. I was over the moon at 2,000 but those likes just kept on coming. I was practically George Takei ( you have to be pretty Facebook-y to get that referance ). Here are just a some of their engagement photos showing their love and Brady Bunch-esque blended family.
I am not sure why I had them posing like this ?
WENDY AND CARRIE ARE ON ‘ SO YOUR enGAYged ‘ blog TODAY. And, well every other Gay blog out there. Not knowing the ways of the blog I submitted it to every gay blog and it was accepted by…every one. My poor ladies having to fill out oh so many questionnaires ( sorry ).
Where to begin to speak of Wendy and Carrie ? Their love for each other and their family touched my soul. The fact that they are not given equal rights breaks my heart. But these two were not about wallowing in the in-justice, they were about celebrating their love for each other with all of their family and friends.
The dream team was the house ! Lora Ward from A Day to Remember planned the wedding like nobodies business, Matt from Extreme Pro D.J’s made the party Extremely awesome and Carissa from Sugar and Spice Speciality Desserts kept everyone in a delicious sugar high. The wedding was at the Citizen Hotel so we had an abundance of amazing places to shoot. Truly a memorable event !
I brought along my own dream team Andrea and Shannon to help me with this special day. Two brides need a lot of coverage people, I am so very thankful for my friends help !!!!
We were all so touched by the way Wendy and Carrie insisted we eat with their guests, we had the most delicious meal that we were talking about several days later. That is just how these ladies roll, a class act !
Awesome expressions ( my favorite part of any wedding ) were abundant on this special day.
I heart shooting at the Citizen Hotel sooooooooo much. Man alive are there loads of great spots.
Wendy walking their children down the isle, priceless !
Photographers LOVE up-lighting !
Of course as the photographer I was required to eat each of these treats after photographing them…. I was just doing my job people.
This photo was on MSMBC !
FUN FACT: Wendy is ‘ sort of a big deal’ in the gay community as an advocate for equal rights. I told these ladies when they are granted the right to marry like everyone else I will be there shooting their legal marriage as well.
photos with heart and soul
