From Applebees to the Eiffel Tower…Ashley and Issac

Taking a job at Applebee's, falling in love with a co-worker who whisks you off to
 Paris and proproses to you atop the Eiffel Tower in Paristhose are the things fairytales are made of, folks.   

Good thing she didn't apply at Red Lobster, this story would have a very different ending.    
Ashley and Issac were my first wedding of 2013, and I have to admit, it felt great to be back in the saddle again.  I truly love my job and spending time with the beautiful people and families I get to meet along the way.
This is one of my favorite photos of the day.  You can see the pure relief and joy in their eyes.  The hard part was over, the ceremony was coming to a close.   All that was left was a final prayer and the kiss.  What a perfect moment to freeze in time. 

Issac bought his groomsmen cigars and when he asked for a shot with them I insisted we do it at night.  Love these!
The Lumen event space was gorgeous.  Not one detail overlooked and the perfect place to kick off the best party of your life.  Congratulations Ashley and Issac, and thank you for letting me tag along on your big day.
