After Emma and Dave were married in Maui, the couple came home to host a reception just for their friends and family. Emma started off at the Double Tree hotel with her brides maids and mother. Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
Make sure to check out part 1 of their wedding here, or see some of their engagement photos here.
While Emma was getting her makeup done she kept fiddling with her wedding rings.
Emma and Dave had an amazing wedding party. They kept me laughing for hours.
We headed back over to the Double Tree hotel for their reception. The couple decorated their room with beautiful orchards.
I might have been a little obsessed with this flower girl. She was adorable! I love how she is hiding behind her father’s fingers.
Emma and Dave started off their reception with their first dance. It is so lovely to watch dancers in action.
Dancing was followed by a series of hysterical and touching speeches.
When parent dances came the couple decided to each dance with their mothers at the same time.
The flower girl danced on the floor for a while but she was not alone. Tucked into her dress is her teddy bear who kept her company the entire night.
Emma and Dave it was an fantastic night, with so much wonderful emotion! I really enjoyed getting to know the two of you and flying half way around the world with you. The journey was incredible. Thank you!
Also, a big thank you to my second shooter Mike Spirito!
[…] One of the greatest and unexpected pleasures of my job is the connection I develop with my clients. It’s like running the gauntlet. We slave away for a year prepping for a wedding and then when its here I witness first hand one of the most meaningful days in their lives. By documenting their wedding I’ve helped capture the moments they will share with friends and family, and for some their own children. Going through this process with couples has been one of the most rewarding experiences. It means the world to me to develop these relationships and even more so to have my couple call me at the birth of their baby. Nothing can be more important to a parent then welcoming into the world their children and nothing is more important to me than being the one to tell the story. These moments are gone so quickly, so get them documented. I’m so happy to share with you Emma and Dave’s beautiful baby girl. I hope you love them as much as I do, and seriously check out the image of Isabella sticking her tongue out at me! Feel free to be a little nostalgic and take a gander at Emma and Dave’s wedding story, part 1 and part 2! […]
