“She’s down the hall in room 410” said a smiling girl dressed in an elegant black dress, as we got off the elevator (our 4 cameras must have given us away). We made our way to the room where more beautiful bridesmaids greeted us and where our beautiful brown-eyed bride was getting her make up done. We set out to take some detail shots of the dress, earrings, bouquet in the adjacent room. Our bride, Tiffani, giddily came in to show us the wedding gift that Jon had given her, the gift that made the bridesmaid’s drool, the gift that her friends said if they owned they wouldn’t wear them for fear of scuffing, the gift that was beyond Tiffani’s wildest imaginings – her very own pair of ‘to die for’ Christian Louboutin shoes. Jon, I would say your gift made more than quite a stir, and I wish you could have been there to see the smile it gave Tifani.
It was one of the many smiles which Jon brought to Tifani’s face that day. You see, Tifani is a little shy, and on the morning of her wedding, she was a little nervous. When Tifani is nervous, she has this sweet shy smile and one cute little frown line, and her eyes are so big and beautiful, I swear she is more adorable than baby penguins, golden retriever puppies, and ducklings in the spring. But whenever Jon is around, that little worry line and shy smile goes away; he makes her laugh.
It worked so perfectly that Jonathan and Tifani decided to see each other before the ceremony. They were able to share their ‘first look’ and excitement with their closest friends, they got to share quiet romantic moments that helped to dispel any nervousness before the ceremony, and they got to spend more time after the ceremony with their fabulous guests. If you can’t tell, I am a little biased as I love the idea of “the first look”. It is so intimate, so personal for the couple – it melts my overly romantic heart.
Tifani and Jonathan, you two are obviously in love and just perfect for each other. Your day was more than fabulous, and we loved capturing the elegance, joy, and beauty of your day. Enjoy your sneak peek, we simply can’t wait to share with you the rest of your pictures!
