Marietta (Mer) and Thomas were married on July 25th, with a ceremony and reception at the Inns of Aurora.
I’ve known Mer for a while now—we have some dear friends in common—and I can tell you that there couldn’t be a nicer person out there. She’s a chill yogi with the sweetest soul who just exudes effortless elegance. When I met Thomas and his beautiful children on their wedding day, I couldn’t believe what a perfect match they made. ( Seriously)
On the hot – but stunning – summer wedding day, I started out with the girls, who were getting their hair done, before I scooted over to Thomas’ to get a few getting ready shots with the boys (with lots of wrestling!). Once the guys had finished tying their ties, I went back to the Inn for Mer’s finishing touches.
Because things were running a wee bit late, Mer and Thomas decided to forego the first look and see each other for the first time walking down the long aisle of the lawn. This ended up working out perfectly, though, since that’s what Thomas originally wanted to do anyway!
The reception was beautiful and filled with love and laughter—especially from all of the children! Everyone danced the night away to the fabulous bands—one was made up of Thomas’ friends, while the other was Mer’s Dad’s band.
Mer & Thomas, Thank you for the honor of having me photograph your amazing day. I am so happy for you both! XOXO Ange
