Our first wedding of 2014 provided lots of first for us: it was our first time at the hotel- Le Meridien Delfina Santa Monica, it was the first time we had ever photographed both the bride’s Bat Mitzvah and the groom’s Bar Mitzvah, it was the first time time I (Jody) found out how well I could shoot through my own tears. I’m not trying to convince anyone that from time to time, I do not push back a tear of two at a wedding, but this day was filled with moments when I was pushing back a flood. Muscle memory took over and I kept on shooting. I guess the point I am trying to make was just how special a day this was- Carolyn & Andrew share such a sweet, wonderful, supportive relationship with one another, and both families are so close, and supportive of their kids, it was really a pleasure to be there to share this important event with them. And then there were the grandmas, oh, the bubbes! Both Irene & Louise share such a special relationship with their grandkids, and just think another wedding in 9 months for Emma & Josh…we can hardly wait!!!
Enough said, here are some of my favorites moments of the day-still to come-lots more to come- reception part 2 later this week. In the meantime…enjoy these…we certainly are!
The beautiful bridesmaids dresses for Carolyn & Andrew’s wedding were purchased from Cruz’s Bridal, who also did the custom alterations on all the ladies’ dresses.
