I am so excited to share Áine + Matthews beautiful Franklin Plaza Wedding! I can not tell you how much I adore this couple and how much fun it was to capture them. This wedding has been 5+ years in the making – from dating to their engagement and everything was just perfect! These two like a good time and wanted their guests to enjoy a fantastic evening of food and dancing trickled in with some more traditional aspects. For example: Matthew said “I don’t want to do a first look” – he was so passionate about having that tradition and I love that this was so important to him. When you see his reaction you will understand why. We all lost it during the ceremony when the officiant quoted this bit from Matthew…In essence he said “The world was hard and complicated and then I met Áine”. That sums this couple up – they are each other’s best friends, and together the world doesn’t seem as difficult or scary. Becoming a married couple was so emotional for them, their friends and family (and us t00) – there was not one dry eye in the venue during the ceremony and so many tearful moments in between. We just loved being able to capture this magical day and of course it is always a pleasure hanging out with our neighbors at Franklin Plaza!

Due to some amazing toasts!
As a surprise, Áine’s Mother arranged for some traditional Irish Dancers
This meant a lot to Áine because she used to dance (and according to her bridesmaids – was really really good)
Time for the cake!
This was one of the funniest “attempts” at getting her in the face with cake…
But Áine got away! Go girl!
