Claire and Ronnie you are the best. No seriously, you have no idea how exhausted photographers are by the time their last wedding of the year rolls around, but you two were amazing. Couples like you make me fall more in love with wedding photography.
Claire doesn't just light up a room, she comes bursting through the windows like a rainbow raining glitter. Everybody loves Claire, and Claire loves everybody. It was no big shock to me that she had 14 bridesmaids, the highest number of bridesmaids I've shot in 10 years.
Ronnie is strong, humble, gentle and kind. He comes from a family that I simply adore. He matched her with 14 groomsmen. I love the look of pride on their faces as they watch their brother and friend lift his new brides veil for the first time.

Claire was radiant. She nailed the couture look with a fitted gown and high placed full veil, which is my absolute favorite style of veil.
Ronnie looked ridiculously handsome, which was not a surprise to me. I've shot 3 weddings for his family and they only produce really good looking children. Seriously, they hit some sort of gene-pool lottery that none of us know about :)
One of the groomsmen gave a beautiful toast where he said "Claire, today was
just a formality, because you've already been family to us for years"
So now they are married. Husband and Wife. I adore you guys and I think the world is a much better place with you in it. I'm so lucky that I got to be your wedding photographer.
