Elle & James......Against all odds.

Wow. This couple. Where to begin. When I first met Elle she was in her battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Luckily less than a month later her prayers had been answered, they had found a donor to give Elle the new lungs she so desparetly needed to survive. James was there with her the entire way. His love and support for her never faltered. Their love is truly something inspiring.

1 year and 1 month after her double lung transplant, Elle and James were married.
On August 9, 2008 the wedding that Elle at one point never thought she would get to have was finally here!

When I saw Elle that morning she was glowing with excitement. I could not even begin to understand how finally arriving at that day made her feel. But I admired her for getting there.

The ceremony took place at the alway lovely Plymouth Congregational Church in Coconut Grove. It was followed by a beautiful reception at the Rusty Pelican in Key Biscayne.

Everything she had been dreaming of for so long finally came true in a night that was nothing short of perfect.

Elle & James, I am so honored to have been able to be a part of your special day. I truly was a day full of love and hope and all the good things to come. I wish you both health, happiness and many many years together.

With this entry I will give you something new :)

Giselle & Guianko......The Perfect Duet!

These next few weddings are much past due but hey, better late than never!

Giselle & Guianko got married on July 9, 2008. They had a a beautiful ceremony at the gorgeous St. Patricks Cathedral in Miami beach. Followed by a beautiful tangerine and chocolate brown reception at the Coral Gables Jr. Women's Club.
Giselle made an absolutely stunning bride! The decor was fabulous. The flowers were amazing creations by Elegante Bodas by Elsa.
The night was topped of with an impromtu performance by the Bride, Groom and the Groom's Mother.
The funniest thing about this event for me was that I did not know how musical my couple was until that day. They definitely brought down the house.
The guests LOVED the show.

Giselle is such a sweet person she was definitely a joy to work with. Her and Guianko have such an amazing bond that you can see after just a few moments that they were truly meant to be. I wish them nothing but many many happy years.

Here are some pictures from the day
