I book most of my weddings through word of mouth. That usually means that at my weddings there are a handful of other couples (besides the bride and groom) that I have already photographed, or will photograph. It makes these events so much fun because I feel like I already know everyone. That was definitely the case for Pete and Marinna’s wedding. Pete and Marinna were at April and Ryan’s wedding only a few weeks earlier, as were many of their friends. The reception was held at Marinna’s house which only added to the familiar and intimate feel of the event.
Here are a few of my favorites from the day:
Marinna’s dress framed in the door of the family study.
Marinna’s mom told me that ever since the family moved into this house, she’d been dreaming about watching her daughter walk down these stairs. Her sister – was just the sweetest little sister, and best helper.
I just loved this moment from the ceremony. Almost all kids have a tough time making through a full mass!
Pete and Marinna had a cheering section for the first kiss!
All of the bridesmaids had different flowers and they were so beautiful.

The first dance!
Pete stuffed Marinna!
She got him back pretty good!
This tent was built over the pool in the back yard.
Pete and Marinna snuck out of the party for a couple of quick pictures.
