September was one heck of a nutty month for me, with double header back-to-back weddings every weekend. Needless to say, the blog has been totally lacking in swoon-worthy wedding bell bliss since I have been obsessively editing in record time to provide a super speedy turnaround to my beloved clients and friends. However, I just have to take this brief moment to update with one of the most memorable weddings, that of Dina & Skyler.
Dina and Skyler’s wedding at Lehmann Mansion was a culmination of many things: pure love and happiness between the couple, romance, a touch of vintage splendor, beautiful colors and lots of family togetherness and emotion. Dina’s mother, who helped plan the wedding with her daughter, recently passed away, but was still very much there in spirit. Dina and her family chose to incorporate many things that made even me feel like she was with us, though we’ve never met. We started the day with an intimate first look between Dina and her father before he helped with the last few buttons of her dress. Her brothers and bridesmaids joined to partake in a special toast with wine her mother chose the day she helped Dina pick out her wedding dress. We continued to a special first look between Skyler and Dina in the courtyard of the mansion, with family and friends peeking through the windows. After capturing gorgeous shots of the couple with Grandpa’s old car and in a secluded forest, we continued with fun wedding party photos around the grounds before the unforgettable ceremony. Dina and her father walked down the aisle with a single yellow rose in memory of her mother, which was placed on the chair she would have sat at the end of the aisle. A special communion was shared between Skyler and Dina before their first kiss sealing the deal. The celebration continued inside a beautiful tent with a stunning display of white in flowers, linens and beads. Another tear-jerking moment left not one single dry eye in the house when Dina’s father made a toast before dinner. The entire day was truly magical, inspiring and heartfelt. I will remember Dina and Skyler’s day forever.
Here are just a few memorable moments from their day.
