MARIA & ROMOLO: VALENTINES DAY LOVE

"9 YEARS AGO TODAY was the beginning of our courtship. We were both working at Big Y where I was a cake decorator and Romolo was "the pizza guy". We became very close and our friendship quickly turned into something more. Our first date was on Valentine's Day of 2000, and we are still inseparable!" -Maria

Meg and I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Maria & Romolo's wedding on VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!! And what a day! This wedding was filled with laughter, tears and so many emotional events! At many points of the day both Meg and I had to look at each other and wipe the tears away from our eyes! I have not my eyes filled with tears at a wedding in along time.

Our day started with Maria at the hair salon she use to work at. Chit chatting and catching up before all the chaos of the day.

We then headed over to meet up with Romolo and the guys! And little did we know we were to be greeted by 11 guys!!!! A dream!!!!!! 11 guys all looking to the 9's and bottles of liquor....what a time!

We started out having some fun with the boys.....

Then I had some Romolo time.....


After the guys we meet up with Maria and the girls...

Lets start with some details....




LOVE THIS SHOE SHOT AND HOW THE LIGHT BACKLITS IT!


I LOVE THESE SHOTS MEG CAUGHT during the getting ready!



LOVE IT!


Okay now here come the tears....

Sigh..... After Maria gets dressed she turns to her mom and says....
"Momma... Thank You for everything...."
The moment was so sweet and sincere...
Oh gosh here they come again the eyes welling up with tears...



Amazing door light...
Amazing Maria!!!!!


Let's get married!!!!!
