brooklyn wedding <> paulo & alex <> giando on the water

YOU WANNA KNOW A COOL FACT? LAST JULY I WAS SHOOTING A WEDDING IN HERSHEY PA, RIGHT BY MY HOUSE. I MET A COUPLE AT THE LUNCHEON AT THIS WEDDING AND WE BEGAN TALKING. THEY SAID THEY NEEDED A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER AND A MONTH OR SO LATER I WAS HIRED AS THEIR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER! AREN'T THESE CONNECTIONS JUST THE COOLEST THING? 

NOW, ONTO THE WEDDING. NOT ONLY DID IT TAKE PLACE IS ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE CITIES IN THE US, IT WAS ALSO THE FIRST WEDDING MY HUSBAND AND I SHOT TOGETHER! SO YOUR NOT GOING TO SEE JUST MY IMAGES, BUT HIS AS WELL. I FEEL LIKE A PROUD MAMA WHEN YOUR SON GOES PEE ON THE POTTY FOR THE FIRST TIME. :P SO THIS WEDDING IS CHALKING UP TO BE ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

SO MANY COOL AND UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT THIS WEDDING. THE COUPLE. THEY WERE QUIRKY AND INTIMATE AND IT JUST SEEMED LIKE THEY WERE IN THEIR OWN LITTLE LOVE WORLD ALL DAY. AND I LOVED IT. THEY HAD HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE CEREMONY LOCATION OF ALL TIME (SEE BELOW) AND ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE FIRST DANCES OF ALL TIME (SEE BELOW FOR CHILEAN FIRST DANCE) - I LOVE WEDDINGS LIKE THIS. WHERE YOUR JUST EMBRACED AS ONE OF THEIR OWN AND YOU FEEL MORE LIKE A GUEST THAN A VENDOR. <3
