An Amazing Wedding at the Grand Hyatt

Samantha and Adam’s chemistry was undeniable from the second they walked into our studio. It was no surprise that they’ve known each other since adolescence! Thank you Sam for writing this to us :)How many people can say they met the person they would spend the rest of their lives with when they were 14 years old? We can. Adam and I met through a mutual friend when we were just 14. I wish I could say we were together ever since, but living in separate cities and attending different schools made us lose touch. Through fate and modern day technology, aka Facebook, we reconnected during our sophomore year at college and started dating that summer.

How many people can say they would end up marrying their best friend? We can. Adam and I not only fell in love, but we became best friends. Cliché? Yes, but we’re truly inseparable and our friends tease us about it all the time. The years seemed to fly by and on our 5th year anniversary Adam proposed. It was the happiest moment of my life. That is, until our wedding day came.

How many people can say they have the best memories of their wedding day? We can. After our wedding came and went all we were left with were our memories… our memories and the photos to piece them all together. Felix and his team not only captured the moments that we would never forget, but they captured some of the moments we never even realized were happening. They were amazing the entire day and made everyone feel comfortable and special. After all is said and done the photos tell the story of our incredible day, and we want to thank Felix, Hermin, and Fred Marcus Photography for giving us the BEST memories.

Love At First Sight

We got the chills from this letter from Jerese. “Love at first sight” really does exist, doesn’t it.Sean and I met in July 2007 at a mutual friend’s party. If love at first sight is possible, then it truly happened to me. When he walked into the room the sea parted, the angels were singing and there was a light that surrounded him. I instantly started to inquire who he was and he did the same. For whatever reason, our friend did not want to introduce us. However, when we both leaned into her at the same time and asked one more time – she threw up her arms in defeat.

After a series of group dates I finally got my one on one. At the end of the date he asked me what I had planned for the following day. I told him that I had an audition, but that I wasn’t sure if I was going to go because I probably won’t get it anyhow. He looked at me and said, “You’ll never get anything if you don’t try.” And that was that. He had won my heart with those simple words. Here was this man that I just met, pushing me to be a better version of myself. Every day after that I pushed myself harder and life started falling into place. For the first time in my life I knew what complete happiness was and I wasn’t going to let it go.

We took our time dating, enjoying each other, experiencing new life together. He took me to ball games and I took him to the ballet. Then a little after four years, he asked me to do him the honor of being his wife. Together, we didn’t just find love, but a teammate for life.
