Megan + Jacob’s Destination Wedding!

It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that we were taking photos of Megan and Jacob getting ready to take the plunge! I am not sure it is possible for me to put into words how much I love this couple. They have taught me so much about the meaning of love and the value of life through the way they live every day with a positive attitude and grace. This couple (and their family) has endured a rough few years with battles with illnesses and the losses of both of their fathers to cancer. Their wedding was a time to celebrate life, love and all out happiness for the union of two beautiful people committing their lives to each other.

As a testament to how loved and special Megan and Jacob are, 91 of their close friends and family members were able to make it to Playa del Carmen, Mexico to help them celebrate their love. Friends and family all came together to pitch in and make this the most magical wedding I have experienced. It was a celebration that lasted for several days culminating in one heck of a wedding ceremony and reception at the Mahekal Beach Resort.

During the cocktail hour, a serendipitous rainstorm blew through. After 5 minutes of a crazy downpour, a beautiful rainbow appeared. As I was trying to get Jacob’s attention to join Megan underneath the heaven sent rainbow, he let me know that he had a honey bee land on his finger and it was going to take him a minute. Jacob’s father was a beekeeper and their family owned a honey business. The significance of the rainbow and the honey bee together at that moment in time literally took my breath away and showed me and all of the guests that there must be something truly magical out there. I am so glad that even though both the bride and groom’s fathers weren’t physically able to be present, they were able to make their love known to all of us that day. I wish Megan and Jacob nothing but a life full of laughter, good health, and many more magical moments!

Words to Live By Wednesday: Happy 100th Birthday Dots!

Today would have been my great grandma Dots’ 100th Birthday! I couldn’t think of a better Words to Live By Wednesday image and quote that would be more fitting today than this one. I am so happy to honor Dots today on my blog. She was a beautiful, intelligent, hardworking and determined woman who has helped shaped me into the woman I am today.

Growing up our family always joked with Dots about what she would do for her 100th Birthday.  It was a milestone our family had planned on her reaching. Dot’s lived to the ripe old age of 97. She lived every day of her life to her fullest and if she had made it to today, she would have been celebrating life with a Vodka Martini in hand. I know she’s smiling down on us all today and dancing free up in heaven. I am so blessed to have had her in my life and am so happy to celebrate her big milestone. Join me today by raising a Vodka Martini to the sky and cheers-ing to Dots! Happy Birthday to the most wonderful lady I know!

She was a lot of energy packaged in a smaller body. So many fond memories, Dot.

Boston Strong

I was at the Boston Marathon this year with my fiancé, future sister in law and friends. We spent the morning loving life and rooting for the racers as they crossed the finish line. We were a little more than one block away from where the second bomb went off.

Divine intervention occurred at around 11:30 a.m. when my future sister in law passed out from standing in one place for too long. We left the race to take her to the hospital to be evaluated and were fortunately no longer in the area when the horrific blasts occurred.

We were in the hospital when the first 6 victims arrived for treatment. We saw first hand how well prepared the hospital workers were for a disaster and how professionally and calmly they sprung into action. Watching the video of first responders, spectators and victims all come together in immediate action after the blasts, reminds me of the good that exists in people. I am so proud to call myself a Bostonian. We will come back stronger from this tragedy.

All of my friends were out of the area at the time of the blasts and I am fortunate to not personally know anyone who was injured or killed in the blasts.  I cannot imagine the pain that these families are going through and send all of my love and well wishes their way.

Being so close to this incident reminds me to treat each day as if it were my last. Love deeply, live fully, and tell your family just how much you love them every single day. In an effort to help the victims of the Boston Bombings, I am donating 26.2% of all of the proceeds from my portrait sessions during the month of May to the One Fund. Book a session today to capture beautiful moments with you, your friends and your family and help a great cause at the same time! We are:
