Lisa and James were married at the Breakers West in West Palm Beach, Florida in October.  For fear of writing a novel, I am going to try to keep this somewhat short and sweet ... the posting is extra long and the photos speak for themselves!

 

From the first contact with Lisa, we instantly hit it off and we eagarly awaited her and Jame's wedding!  The couple lives in Chicago but have family in Florida, which is why they chose West Palm as their wedding destination.  We met the day before the wedding and were amused at some family member's relief that we "showed up" :-).  In all seriousness, both families wecomed us with open arms, and Lisa's family warmly opened up their home to us both on the day of the wedding and for the trash-the-dress shoot the following day.  Everyone was so wonderful to be around.

 

There were many highlights to the wedding day, not the least of which was a traditional Chinese Lion Dance performed immediately after the ceremony as a surprise from Lisa and James to their guests!  It was spectacular to watch and total eye candy for any photographer with all the stunning costumes and colors!  They also had hookahs and a bubble machine at the reception ... what fun.  I LOVE receptions with this much energy, even if I do get smaked around a bit on the dancefloor :-).

 

The next postng will have highlights from their trash-the-dress shoot and you don't want to miss it!  Thank you Lisa and James ... we had an unbelievable time!!

The stone in the necklace is called Tanzanite.  It is very hard to come by these days, especially one of such color and clarity, and  Lisa's mom gave it to her to wear on her wedding day.  It was stunning and it is my favorite stone!!!

Tina,

I LOOOOOVE the photos! I There's so many fantastic shots, I can't pick a favorite. I love the cake shots, way more fun than the standard shots you see all the time. The character in the heart is "double happiness" the "symbol" for a wedding. You guys did fantastic work again! I'm so excited!
