Marissa and Peter's wedding was a celebration that will leave me smiling for a long time. The way that Peter looked at Marissa and repeated throughout the day "you are my best friend" melted my heart. How each time Marissa looked at Peter - her face light up so bright. Such a beautiful couple that I was introduced to through Peter's cousin Shoshana, an amazing family client of mine. I am so honored that our paths have crossed and that I was part of so much LOVE and Laughter.
I started my day with documenting Marissa's entourage of beautiful and strong women. Including her adorable daughter, Makayla. This little strawberry blonde blue eyed sweet pea stole the show. I just loved how she squeezed her eyes shut when giving me the cheese face. BUT let's not forget their sweet son and ring bearer Tyler. Who had the swag going on, the sweetest smile and a kick butt hip hop dance! Go Tyler!
The venue at Alexlee House in Greenfield, Massachusetts has the most beautiful scenic views and was the perfect backdrop for Peter and Marissa's traditional Jewish ceremony. I will admit this was my first and I fell in love with every aspect. The unity of the two families was beautifully orchestrated. The genuine love and respect that each guest had as they witnessed Peter and Marissa vow their love to each other was so moving.
I think my favorite part of Peter and Marissa's day was the Hora Traditional Dance. The expressions, the intensity, the absolute joy of watching two people be raised up on chairs to celebrate their unity was so amazing to document. Every part of Marissa & Peter's day could not have been possible without contribution from family, friends and some pretty awesome vendors. Tommy of Marx Enterntaintment, SkyRide Products, Seth Mias Catering, Nuttlemen Florist, Jessica of Jessica Marie Photography and Danielle from the Alexlee House - you all rock.
Marissa and Peter I wish you and your adorable family a lifetime of happiness, love and joy! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of such a fantastic celebration!
