A special thank you to Pete Malone of 217 Photography for joining me. We always have fun shooting together and you will see some of his images below.
Kristen and Monsef were a tad nontraditional, which I loved. This is a second marraige for both of them and they have been together for a long time. It was my first time meeting each of them in person and my first impression of them was just total unconditional love for each other. They were as giddy as a couple newly dating and as comfortable as the couple they are and have been for many years. Moncef couldn’t stay out of the room as Kristen was finishing to get ready. He kept going in and out of the room as she was dressing, it was very sweet.
a few details
This cake! OMG the detail in this cake was stunning. All the work in the hand coloring of the sugar fruit, flowers and leaves. Wow.
They make a lovely couple
Here is that giddiness I was mentioning before. They were so natural.
Kristen has a little sass in her.
During the ceremony, lots of great expression
I love this succession of images
Monsef’s two sons gave some very sweet heartfelt speeches. It was so nice to hear them speak so highly of their dad and how proud they were of him.
It may have been a small and intimate wedding, but this group knew how to party.
In their own world.
To end the night we went up to the roof deck for a few shots against the city scape.
Congratulations you guys!
