Congratulations Sonny and Megan!

Ok - I think this may possibly be the longest wedding post I've ever done - I just had way too many favorites!

Sonny and Megan's wedding was just gorgeous! Megan chose a "Beauty and the Beast" theme for her wedding, which could have been cliche but Megan pulled it off beautifully. And I have to admit, while I am ALWAYS honored when a couple chooses me to photograph their wedding, this feeling was magnified during this one. Several times throughout the day I heard it mentioned how Megan had dreamt of this day since she was about 3 years old! When I heard that, I was struck by the fact that this was an incredibly important day for her - and I had been chosen to record those memories that would last the rest of their lives. Wow - talk about humbling!

Anyways, every detail was perfect, thanks to some amazing vendors:
Venue: Tavern and Chapel in the Garden
Catering, Flowers, and Cake: Encore Catering of Central Florida
DJ: Premier Entertainment

Here's some of my favorites, with the slideshow at the end.

Doesnt' Sonny look handsome? Not like a beast at all :)

Megan's sisters had planned a little surprise for her...

A horse-drawn carriage!

I loved all the photos that they had placed around. Most were of the two of them (I saw a lot of their engagement photos) but some were special family photos. I thought it was such a neat touch!

I managed to get my 6-month pregnant self onto a chair to get some shots of everyone dancing.. all of a sudden I heard the DJ announce for everyone to turn and wave at me! Good thing I had the right lens on for the shot!

And here's the slideshow...

Congratulations you two! Thank you for the honor of being a part of your day!

I totally burst into tears when I saw the picture of the bride dancing with her Daddy and the look on her face. Your pictures are stunning.
