We love getting calls from little sisters of our brides! It was such a joy to hear that Eden was engaged (we LOVED shooting her big sis Ellen’s wedding a few years back) and we were so excited to be documenting her day.
SO many highlights–where to begin?
I have not seen a bride smile so much all day as Eden did. Literally from start to finish. What a beautiful, beaming bride. At one point Ric asked her to look serious for a photo…”I can’t, I’m too happy!” was her response. When Peter saw her for the first time, he was so beautifully emotional–truly memorable. And, even though they saw each other before the ceremony, they were both beaming when they saw each other at the ceremony. Ric and I LOVED seeing Eden’s sweet 95 year old PopPop again, and it was so touching that he started walking Eden down the aisle to her parents. What an amazing man, and getting to work again with Eden’s wonderful family was a joy! The Shimmer Band did a great job, and their first dance song was so much fun–”You make my dreams come true” (Hall and Oates). It is not often that we hear a first dance song that we haven’t already heard many times before…and it’s hard not to smile when you hear it! Eden and Peter were rarely off the dance floor–they had such a blast at their celebration.
We were thrilled to work with Ona at the Westin Buckhead and with Felissa Covin, who did an outstanding job planning the event (she even gave a personal thank you to the hotel staff, which I had never seen before). We always enjoy seeing our friend, Joan Rubenstein who created the most beautiful bouquets (in memory of her sweet Grandmother, Eden carried her monogrammed handkerchief tied around her gorgeous bouquet), a gorgeous chuppah (in the round) and beautiful centerpieces.
Eden and Peter, have an incredible time in France…and we know this day was just a beginning to a beautiful forever together. Mazel tov!
